Reviews

Listening Recommendation
 International Karate (Simple Mix)
Arranged by Gemini 64


Very atmospheric synthey remix, yet retaining the original oriental feeling. Very nice work! This is my kind of remix, not anything too flashy and "original" just the real thing with great sounding samples and effects.

 Cauldron II - I am a Pumpkin Man
Arranged by trauma


I find this remix to be nothing short of awesome, right from the (smile-provoking) intro to the (awe-provoking) finale. Of course, having played a lot of Cauldron II in my time (and having shared the feelings of frustration the artist had) I can't be too objective about it, but this tune captures perfecty not only the rythm and melody of the original (which I like), but also the frowing sense of anger as that godforsaken pumpkin kept on jumping and JUMPING RIGHT INTO THOSE DAMN SKELETONS AND... *ahem* well, you get the idea.

Just a small thing... since I'm spanish my written english is more or less decent but my spoken one is rather jerky... Could someone post the lyrics just to see if I got them right? I don't know if "I'll be pumpkin' you just like pumpkins do" and "I'm a pumpkin man I love to jump, jump, jumpjumpjump" are 100% accurate, or if I'm missing some lyrics along the way...

 DeltaSisters (feat. Kermit)
Arranged by Puffy64


It's a pity that the registration quality could be done better, btw it's one of the best merge remix I've heard. At 1:17 reminds me of john mellencamp's human wheels song.

Back In Time 3 CD

Back in Time 3

by Various Artists

A five-star journey in space and time inspired by the music of the C64. Unique two part booklet gives information about the tracks, and presents a story outline synchronised with the CD to enhance listening pleasure. Highlights include the epic symphonic "Trap", featuring performances from both Ben Daglish and Mark "madfiddler" Knight, the hell-for-leather technological sound of "One Man and his Droid", and three extraordinary versions of "Zoids". The package is topped off by the amazing artwork of Mat Recardo, Arvid Weber and Steve Barrett.
