Great remix, true to the original!
Well done! Your remix is much better than mine.
What can I say? Another one of my favourite themes covered perferctly. Good job!
Great!
Ok. Partly very good indeed, but the different instrumentation on various parts don't fit together well enough. Sounds dated.
Great sound quality! Very nice work!
Absolutely Brilliant. Sounds fantasic. Instruments and effects are perfect!
So coooooooool! Bad game, great Song! Thanks for this awesome one!
Fantastic, fresh, clear, growthing song ;)
Awesome.
Extraordinary! This remix catches all the spirit of all those childhood-songs! Pure enthusiasm!
Was good until the bad chords around 5:00
A great song.
Yes, great!
Very very good!
Damn good but with greater potential!

This remix of one of the best known and memorable Amiga demo sounds is just so neat. Back then, Red Sector was establishing themselves as the Amiga demo group. I recall with nostalgia watching the red Sector Megademos and looking forward to my own Amiga. One of the reasons I sold my 64! The instruments here are nicely selected and sound quality is good. Only gripe I'd have is the fact that it is - again - (and this is seemingly the case with most Amiga remixes so far) too straightforward. A few variations, some extra effects and a different arrangement to make it more YOUR work Cirdan, that would have been great. Still, a great track and one I'll gladly listen to over and over again.

So sad that I've missed this tune for so many years! Some great sound in this remix, good mixing, and a terrific vibe, though it loses some of its oomph around 3:35. Outro still manages to be decent. I'm torn in my verdict, in it being true to its original, it doesn't go full techno, but if it did it would have been an absolute beast that would go straight onto my all-time list of favorites. I also suspect that some of the demoscene groups (Farbrausch for one) have found inspiration in this tune in the prods of the late 00's.
