It's more ambient than I would expect from a remix of this SID, but strangely, it works for me. I quite like the way the lead is handled with the right portamentos. Yeah, it's an XM, so what. It's still good.
Nice! Although there are better remixes of this tune.

This tune has always been a smokey back-alley New York tune to me, so hearing it done so synthily is more difficult to like than it should be. The lead (which should be a smoky sax played by a real cool sax player) is a dry synth which doesn't convey the atmosphere of back-alley melancholia that it deserves. The rest of the backing is rather reminiscent of Sega's arcade work. Very atmospheric synth stabs add a touch of class, taking it from a 6 to a 7 overall. There are more atmospheric versions of this tune, but it's still worth a download.
