REVIEW BY buzzard (11/05/2005)

Most tracks have a shelf life of around 3 months generally speaking, you listen to it, like it, add to a good few playlists or burn onto several homemade compilation cds etc.
THen, inevitably, you get bored of hearing it and find something new to listen to.
This particular track is now a well over 3 years old and has lost none of the 'wow' factor from when I first heard it!

Not only was this one of the best remixes ever written, it still is as good, if not better than anything else since.

For those who never had a c64 - it's an amazing piece of music.
For those who grew up with a c64, it's a real sweet flashback as well.

The only question that remains now, is what happened to Machinae Supremacy???
Someone needs to kidnap whoever was responsible for this gem and lock them in a recording studio ASAP!

REVIEW BY mfe (10/06/2005)

I'll start with the bad: I'm not a rock/metal fan.

That said, I can say that this arrangement smacks of professionalism, a brilliant sense of timing and creativity, mixing skills that rival most if not all commercial outfits and studios, and actually got me nodding my head along to a familiar SID.

Hats off to machinae supremacy...

REVIEW BY mahoney (28/01/2003)

The first time I heard this, I thought "This is too good to be true!". And that feeling hasn't left, it's still there. Love at first sight! A good balance between screaming guitars and music (which might give a little hint of what I generally feel about hard rock) makes this song _the best_! :-D Thanks for the ride, Machinae Supremacy!

REVIEW BY reactor (04/07/2003)

My hat off for this remix indeed!
They've kept the spirit of the song so perfectly intact, wrapped in all of those lovely grungy guitarsolos... Me love! One of the few to succesfully mix both modern style music along with the original soundtrack. And the intro is a chapter for itself, I definatly agree.

Congrats!

REVIEW BY entity (13/11/2004)

Wow, I'm speechless!

This tune is without doubt one of the most enjoyable pieces I have heard; True to the original, yet quite different. I don't really know what else to add, except... Thank you, machinae supremacy :-)

Too good to be true :-) It maintains original sound despite completely different instrumentation. I recommend looking to www.machinaesupremacy.com for more songs (esp. sidology tunes)

REVIEW BY valentinerevolt (30/07/2004)

This is an excellent remake, it sticks to the original well whilst being a wildly different style. Its loud, its fun and its techinally amazing. Great guitar work in this piece.

REVIEW BY daxx0r (26/04/2004)

I have honestly never heard anything that good! It really sounds "rockish" and original, at the same time as it doesn't forget the old classic melody!!! Two thumbs up!

Obviously one of the best remixes of this tune ever. No wonder it was used in the Giana Sisters:Twisted Dreams game.
