I like the begining best!
Thanatos raises the dead. Good downtempo Remix properly emphasising the melodramatic character of Rob's Composition.

First: OK beginning, some nice chords. Then it falls apart. Take an ambient tune called Thanatos. Let's take a rhythm from a drunk Hot Chocolate tribute band. Let's put alcohol into the C64 until it can't hold a note. This might be what you'd get when the blender was finished. Ow! I'm mystified by the high marks on R64 for this tune: FTC has done much better (and god knows I love his stuff!). Ow, my ears.

When it started, I was tempted to denounce this remake, but when the lead kicked in and as it progressed, I was convinced that it`s a well thought-out piece that deserves more attention. Some might be annoyed by the high-pitched lead at times, personally, I am annoyed by the seemingly out-of-rhythm snare drums, but as a whole it`s better than its parts. Not superb, but better.
