Sounds like "Tony Banks does Fred Gray", which is a good thing in my book
Very nice medley that blends together well, I wish there was more of "Breakthru" though!
A very much Jogeir-sounding arrangment, sweet and nice. I understand this is supposed to be a smooth arr, but I miss some energy, twist or something in this remix... But, a really excellent production!
This is really amazing nothing more to say
I've always liked Fred gray's tunes, so it's good to hear some decent remixes of a few of his sids.. Nice to hear west bank high score table tune finishing off the mix as well :)
It's like "Asian Legends" by Reyn, but with Fred Gray tunes only. At times it sounds like Mike Oldfield, other times it's prog-rock, but the bottom line is that it's awesome throughout. Smooth and buttery, as expected from Jogeir.
Awesome stuff, I simply love it!
Nice one.
Oustanding sounding arrangment as usual :)
This is a very a perfect music! Congratulations!
A master piece.
Very cool segways, great mastering, and awesome tunes. Good length too. All in all a definitely outstanding tune.
Jogeir roxx again ;)
A valiant attempt at a full "pieced together medley", but I aint rankin on difficulty of concept... Sorry. Bits of mastery with sections of meh. Id say start the track at 2:22, but then you'd have to alter the rest to fit....
Mmm... From 2:52 to 3:45 it's a remix of "Weightless" from Mike Oldfield, one of my all time favourite tunes. Untouchable, in my opinion, but anyway you did a great job.
Sonically it can't be faulted, but it just feels far too laboured and to be honest I got bored listening to it, though I do enjoy the mutants section, that alone would get a red face the rest of it doesn't really do anything.
This is close to perfection. This is so typical Jogeir, all instruments, fills, solos and arrangements are there and yep I love it, so it's hard to not fall in love with this compilation. Mutants is awesome, and Yes I like this synthish take =)
Love the Oldfield'ish style...:)
Hey Jogeir, I'm a big fan, I love your album "Out Of Silence". So cool to have another track from you for free! I like its Oldfield'ishness. Goosebumps! Added to my collection, of course!
This is great from the first listen and I'm not familiar with all the tunes. Yes a bit of TBII in there which made my ears prick up. Real feel good key.
I really like this! I agree it does become an Oldfield song at 2:22 onward
Very beautiful mix with a good insertion of "Weightless" excerpt fron Mike Oldfilds' "Tubular Bells II" at the begining of "Mutants" part... Very good job...
WOW! Nice one!
Exactly! Nice one!
VERY VERY Mike-Oldfield style, which is always pleasant.
Really nice medley. I agree with the others on the great use of Oldfield material. Smooth production and great mixing. I wish my mixes sounded like this.
I think it's much better than the recent Ark rmx, with much more musical excitement. Perhaps, a little more fluent connection between the themes could make it even better - but apart from that nano detail it's a winner. C'grats!
Félicitations! (After a few listenings, would add a second outstanding!)
What a blast, courious that I've found it not earlier :)
Realy beautiful in every second.
Outstanding remix from Jogeir here again! This remindes me sooo much of those beloved past days when we all listened and played our c64 favourite games! Where games still were _games_ with FUN! :-D Thanks a LOT, Jogeir for this great flashback here! :-D
I could listen to this the whole day! No doubt, this is one of my favorites. I love the Mutants part! And of course I appreciate that you're the first one who remixed subtune 3 of Hysteria the way I like it!:)
Same samples everywhere, really hard to distinguish the game to me.
Yeah, I like it very much
Sonds to me like some melody from a Marillion's song. Kind of...
*love* Mutants ☺
One of my all-time fav remixes / medleys and has stood the test of time quite well.

Overall rating

Sounds like Tony Banks does Fred Gray, which is a good thing in my book. Bonus marks for doing new stuff!

Moving to the Mutants in the middle, there's some really nice restructuring and noodling which got me smiling. The move to the solo bit is very nice, though the lead could do with slightly more staccato to give the melody a bit more bite. I love the solo bits upward bits, just the right amount of delay.

Then it turns Genesis again... circa 1979 (without Mike Rutherford, unfortunately).

And then.. West Bank? Didn't see that coming... lovely old school Amiga and delay feel... some nice arpeggios, but struggles slightly against the repetitive nature of the source material to stay focussed (or is that just me?). I don't think I would have stayed focussed on this tune for that long without building to something more...

Really nice ending to wrap it up nicely.

Overall, very red-worthy: old school and proud of it.
