Again I decidied to remix a track that has never been done before. I tried some different approaches on this, and while I 1st thought this had to be a 100% synth-pop remix, I stumbled into rock-style, mixed it up with some pop-elements and here it is, Dr.Future's rock-pop-synth-easy-listening-mix!

REVIEW BY maindrian (03/08/2003)

The sid was possibly the perfect track to remix with duelling guitars, and Dr. Future does a great job early on. However, it could be preference or execution, but I dont really dig the synth noises and the drums. They seem out of place at points. Also, I dont know if its just my hearing, but the timing appears to be off in some places. It all seems slightly... Robotic?

Bad points aside, I'm a fan. Even though they dont fit together well, the synth and the guitar effects are well done, and Steve Barretts wonderfully floaty melody is an absolute knockout. Its great, not spectacular, just great. Meaning it wont waste your time. Get it in!

REVIEW BY Tas (06/08/2003)

Oh those guitars are simply Beautiful. These are a massive plus point and the main point of the remix. The drums maybe a little over attacking really for such a beautiful lead. A more sweeping feeling i think might have been the order of the day with this tune.

However i actually really like the remix, it gets away with murder at times but gets away with it because your ears are so listening to the lead sound.

REVIEW BY DHS (28/07/2003)

Dunno the original.

The initial unplugged feel is very good, it's a pity it's changed later, when drums and bass come on: synth bass and electronic toms are out of context, so is the reverb on the snare (too much of it, imho).

The solo guitar is very very good, so the spaghetti-western feel of the track.

4 omoroca shouts: Nice!
4 cinemaniac shouts: It's really good, but a bit too long to be really great.
