The original Ryuichi Sakamoto track that Ouewhand's piece is based on is so beautiful that's it's tough not to do it justice. Staying away from the oriental leanings of the original and the tough sounds of Ouwehand's C64 version, this remix begins well, with gentle but engrossing backing. However, the weak lead instruments--particularly the piano--and occasional bum note go some way to ruining what had the potential to be a much better remix.

I plod along in a sewer; the end just doesn't come along soon enough, how do I get out from the stench!!!!

Well it's not really that bad, but it's not too far away really.

Nopes, its one of those monotonous tune that isn't really inviting and just drags along, like being lost in that sewer!

It's ok, but bet you won't play it twice!

A very relaxed tune that you play when you are fed up of Enigma and want something more pop. The original tune was some 80s synth hit, AFAIK.
The instruments used do not sound cheap and the synths are sweet. Really a chill-out tune, adds nothing special to the original. Good mixage.

Moving along at a nice and relaxed pace this cover of a remix is quite
pleasant. I especially like the long delays (echoes) on that sax-like lead.
It's a nice piece even if nothing special.
