One of my favourite Hubbard sid's. Great guitar remix, I like the end which is a little harder
One of my favourite tunes. I really like the distorted guitar and the pick slide he does to introduce it.
Nice'n'relaxed!
Excellent work, a chilled out start with an emotional heavy ending.

I think Maindrian is the new guy on the block with a guitar. Sounds like a classic rock ballad, with a very familiar drum beat going and some nice silent guitar work. Close to the 3 minute mark there's use of some phat distorted guitar, but well laid upon the other guitars. At the end, the song is as beautifully mellow as it was for starters.

I like this remix a lot better than the first attempt at Dragon's Lair 2 that Maindrian tried. I like it as much as Maindrians Times of Lore remix, it has the same melancholic mood to it, but this song is made entirely on real instruments, no SID usage. I look forward to see him giving more songs his great guitar treatment. If you missed out on his Times of Lore, go get it.

While the original is quite upbeat maindrain attacks this piece or rather doesn't attack it, but gently brings out a softer side to the remix. Well thats until 2:39 where he brings in a distorted guitar which unfortunately kills the piece. This addition ruins what would have been an awesome remix. Fortunately it last for only 1 minuite before normal service resumes.

The track which yet again bares simularities to early Mike Oldfield is beautiful and emotional. A great piece of work which is sadly let down by that oh so unwarrented harsh distorted guitar. Shame really, because if it wasn't for that i could play it all day on repeat.

What does a heavy distorted guitar do into an romantic river epic remix?
Sadently, it infears with a really nice attempt of this tune. I guess everyone would be grateful if you will remove this junk and upload this tune again

Due this heavy distoreted guitar I can only give a good because it really ruins this tune.
