REVIEW BY K8-bit (17/06/2011)

I would sum up a review of this track that I only hear recently from a random play on slayradio thusly:

This is how I imagine Matt Gray wanted the original piece to sound.

Fantastic. Also an example of where the use of the real C64 sound (by which I mean SID sounds) works to create a truly nostalgic fusion of retro and timeless instrumentation.

5 ZnL shouts: I love the guitars, good work here!
5 Arne shouts: Very good hard rock remake of LN2. I like the solo guitar.
5 SarahKreuz shouts: Guitars are fine, drums are awesome - very well done (just can`t decide which one is better; yours or JPH`s - both great and forever to b placed in my collection XD)
5 ulfepulf shouts: Nice!
6 LaLa shouts: Superb instrumentation, great arrangement, spotless mixing. My only minor complaint is that I would've changed the original arpeggios to chords or guitar licks. Other than that - wow!
5 YogibearRenoise shouts: Great stuff! Very nice you added some riffs yourself!
5 pie vs pie shouts: Good mix of sid and live guitar drums eh... Could be better but what makes this really nice is the harmony on the lead guitar oh yeah!
6 ifadeo shouts: Fuckin' awesome.....!!!
4 ryrynz shouts: Guitar is awesome but the arpeggio buzz drives me crazy it's too much and gets annoying, somewhat obscuring the guitar and almost ruining this otherwise great song. Please change! Surprised it doesn't annoy the rest of you guys that much.. Easy fix!
6 hillsman shouts: There's a few mixes of this track, but this version is exhilarating with some great drums and guitar work!
6 NecroPolo shouts: It is raining dogs and LN2 Central park remixes these days :) It is nice to meet an another newcomer axeman in the remix scene.
6 Danceaway shouts: Firstly welcome to the remix scene, and what a welcome, fantastic mix, top class mixing, awesome guitar work, more remixes please!!!!
6 Maegnuz shouts: Love it! Not perfect, but still good enough for a red face.

6 Allu shouts: Best remix out there!! Guitar is awesome and really really good drums also! Great job!!
5 Martijn shouts: Nice energetic remix, very good indeed! Rock on!
3 omoroca shouts: Another aimless guitar noise version!
6 Dr-Duke shouts: Gosh! I so love this track! Thx Richard! And omoroca... Ssshh... Shmile!:)
3 MattMaybee shouts: Overall, this is a competent effort and does remind me much of the original, but I agree with ryrynz here arpeggio drives me nuts too
6 Butcher shouts: I just love this.
6 xgener8or shouts: Very cool guitar job! Makes you think it's what Matt Gray had in mind when he made it.
4 bexs_79 shouts: Good in general.. Quite closed sound, there are better remake of course
