Story

That was a labour of love, wasn't 100% satisfied with my Lightforce version from the days. So I tried hard to make it shine.

Hope you like it.

Red for me, partly because this is a great remix but mainly cause you've improved almost everything from your original. Guitar playing is more natural, especially the end lead solo, replacing some synths for guitar give is a more cohesive sound. Less reverb and boominess on the bridge, the thinned out pulse width synth sounds better plus the drums and toms sit better in the mix. Great work, these may be subtle changes but they make a big difference.

I have no idea how you manage to get your mixes sound so crisp and clear, but doesn't matter on what system I listen to this one, it just punches through speakers and headphones no problem.

Anyway, I gave your previous version an orange 2 years ago, and this one definitely earns the red one. More guitars, less reverb/echo on the lead, and just an improved sound overall. I wish the guitar lead was more nuanced at places (like at 4:36 maybe should've used mutes instead), but that's just a minor gripe. I really like it!
