REVIEW BY LaLa (20/10/2011)

The positives:

- Doesn't mess much with the original arrangement while at the same time it adds its own unique touches. Nicely done!

- The powerful guitars really drive this tune. Great, great stuff.

The negatives:

- The relatively thin synthesizer (SID?) lead sounds. They make the remix sound thinner than it should be. Make them fatter (like the deep pad in the intro), and/or switch them to rhythm guitars.

- Too many wrong notes in the bridge section between 3:22-4:08, they just really bother my ears.

- It may be just my headphones, but the mix sounds a bit overcompressed to me.

Overall, the stylistic choice may not be anything new or creative as far as long-time RKO listeners like me are concerned, but it's executed pretty well.
