REVIEW BY Grigul (08/02/2016)

Well, you all maybe have a tune or more where you hear only the first 5 seconds or so and you instantly know what game that is, where you played it in your past, where you've been at that time and so on. This one masterpiece is one of those. It's just requested on a live show on Slay Radio, while I'm writing another review here. I hadn't noticed that the DJ announced thist tune, but after the first seconds it shot through my mind - "Tetris"....before I looked, if it's really Tetris. Kraku, well done. Great Job.

REVIEW BY jackal (01/07/2010)

First off, this is a terribly difficult piece to do any sort of remix .. Other than a transcription with enhancements.. It's also one of my favorite C64 pieces. Overall an excellent job. I'd definitely not be afraid to go overboard with the percussion in part two, think NIN's Piggy.. I did feel that the bass sound that comes in at 3:00 should have been more like a distorted rhythm guitar..

5 Dan shouts: Wonderfully atmospheric capturing the SID expcetionally well
5 Ziphoid shouts: Long, but not annoyingly repetitive in any way. Nice atmosphere and I'm looking forward to part 2.:)
3 Satanarchist shouts: The sounds are ok but its just so empty and boring.. Thank Satan it wasnt the full 25 minutes
5 NecroPolo shouts: Man that SID is a huge piece of cake, have my respect for taking the challenge. The atmosphere is captured and the flow is great. I like it. Mix/master should improve. I'm curious about Pt2.
5 RayF shouts: Like it! A very hard tune to remix. I am more the untzuntz guy, but this a one of my favourite "feel" tunes
5 XxDUSTYxX shouts: For the drums I wished more variation (for instance from 1:47), but it's a very nice track nevertheless.
6 Drunken Fool shouts: Awesome mix, I love it
5 K8-bit shouts: Very Good! Love the original, glad someone has done it, would've liked harder chord sound like the original KRANG KRANG, K-K-K-rang - part 2 maybe?:)
6 mika shouts: Thank you for this, I have been waiting for a good remix of this classic tune for a long time. Anybody ever dreamed of tetris, piling blocks in your sleeep? This hypnotic piece accompanied mine.
4 Supergrobi123 shouts: Good one!
6 werdy shouts: My favorite sond and this remix keeps the original meditative athmosphere. Great!
5 Dortmund shouts: I agree with jackal & kate z. The drums in original SID were so big hammers and here so small dots but nevertheless: The great atmosphere is here, thanks :)
6 karter shouts: Very well done. I totally agree with Dortmund who in turn agrees with Kate Z and Jackal. A full point from me for not spoiling the atmosphere of the original.
6 Melaure shouts: Very nice listening
6 XMen75 shouts: Awesome, great atmosphere.
6 omoroca shouts: Great stuff! Added to my collection.
6 Grigul shouts: Great Job, Kraku.
