Here is the synopsis from[1] Beatport:
Can't Sleep is the third single to be released from Above & Beyond's debut artist album, 'Tri-State'. The album has been hotly tipped by critics with DJ Magazine calling it 'brilliant' & awarding a rare 5/5 review. Can't Sleep looks set to be one of the big tunes this summer, & has already picked up 10 Radio 1 plays. This tune from Anjunabeats features mixes from Above & Beyond, Maori, a house remix from man-of-the-moment Ian Carey, plus reworks from some of the biggest names in trance: Signum & ATB. Above & Beyond have beefed up the album version of Can't Sleep ready for club play, while Maor Levi dons his Maori alias for a techy rework that Sander Van Doorn would've been proud of & which has earned Radio 1 spins from Jules. Carey picks up where he left off with the massive 'Say What You Want' & turns in a driving re-work that should find favour on all the house floors over the summer months. Meanwhile Signum & ATB's mixes are designed for peak time use only. Enjoy!
Here's what's wrong with that.

Can't Sleep (Original Mix)

This is not the album mix. This is gloriously longer; at a proper duration.
It is no surprise that this was so remixed. It is the sublimest of pleasures.
The dolour is so perfectly handled! This in no way can have too much praise. I can barely see for all the tears.
This completely merits its acoustic mix.
Fervent brume, asperous raylessness... this is the acme.

Can't Sleep (ATB Remix)

Which cannot be said for any of the remixes. ATB went for a little variation. It does no good whatsoever.

Can't Sleep (Maori Remix)

'Sander Van Doorn would've been proud of [this]'? Really? What did van Doorn do to deserve that? Quite a bit, actually, though nonetheless.
As you can guess by him ditching his name for this, this is trash. Conscription is almost a fair punishment for this.
Speaking of punishment, please explain why this recrement is included in Volume Four.

Can't Sleep (Ian Carey Remix)

The other errors were 1. this 'Jules' must be drunk then & 2. no, this should not find favour on 'house floors', nor anywhere else. This is trash, just like the other remixes.

Can't Sleep (Super8 & Tab Remix)

This is the continuation of their insomnia. & why wouldn't it be? Both are adrenergic. However, this stylistic update is not one of the few merits of 10 Years Of Anjunabeats. The minuscule originality is unhelpful & unmemorable. They had better things to do that year.
