REVIEW BY craigg (22/07/2003)

Of all the SIDs available, Puffy64 decided to take the subtle, oriental Way of the Exploding Fist, and turn it into an explosion of drums and electric guitars. The blast is short - a minute and a half - blink and you'll miss it.

The two main sections of the track are repeated twice, with the 'band' going into 'psycho overdrive mode' for the second part, the drums being played at breakneck speed. Despite (or perhaps in spite of) the absurd nature of the piece, it works. Just look before you leap - if you're expecting another laid-back, 'softly softly' version of Brennan's classic SID, you'll be somewhat surprised...

REVIEW BY DHS (28/07/2003)

Puffy continues on the path of metalaxing classic C64 oriental tunes :-)
As usual we have a very heavy, fast paced track... and, hey, this guy does everything on his own! Wow!

Technically, he's a very good guitar player, the drums are a little covered by all the guitar mayhem. It's a pity for an acoustic track like this one to keep the synth initial lead (imho) instead of replay it with a guitar.

There's some noise and some mastering problem.

Overall, another stunning track from our Puffy64 friend :-)
