Only "SID+drums" but rocks anyway! Added to my collection.
The original is way better, and one of my fave SIDs. However, extra point for the guts of doing this gem that's not Galway's most popular.

It's amazing the difference a good delay can make to a tune. Other arrangers might have rendered this dry and uninteresting, but Feekzoid has simply added strings, timpani, an orchestral feel, bounciness and smoothness to the original SID, all blended in seamlessly. Gorgeous work Feeky: even Galway's patented digis fit in perfectly. Must-download.

One of my fav tunes is the MPS intro. While I really like Feekzoid`s covers, I think his style doesn`t fit at all here. MPS intro is a more upbeat tune, with raw, harsh sounds. I think, Feekzoid felt this, too, as he completely cut out the last 30 seconds of the original tune from his cover. It`s just not there. Don`t get me wrong, this is an awesome piece of music, it`s just not what I feel should`ve been done for this SID.
