All-Time charts position:
Inspired by Rondo Veneziano. They sold over 25.000.000 CDs with this kind of arrangements.
Someone already did that kind of remix, you've just added pop drums - sounds too much like Vanessa Mae to me. Mastering is good though.
Very nice mastering, but sloppy otherwise IMO. Some wrong notes also!
I agree with Mordi. I like the mixing but those notes bring it down.
Kudos for trying to add something new to the original SID!
Review by LaLa
Unfortunately, where this remix falls flat is in the instrumentation. The winds (flutes, piccolos, etc.) and the strings are especially lacking in sonic detail. And that Korg preset overused by Enigma and others at 1:16 is just too tacky for me. Add it all up and the end result comes out sounding somewhat cheap.
I do like the drums, though, and I do like the arrangement of the remix, it just needs a bit more attention to the instrumentation details.
