Outstanding!
More of this, please!
Cooksey, Bach and Jarre would be proud! Goose bumps all over! Added to my collection.
Strange, but very cool tune.
Good!
Perfect!
The sound quality is poor and the instruments just dont work together, harpischord & chipmunk with far too much snare? I dont think so

It's a pitty the great harpsichord arrangement has no chance against loud percussions and a lead instrument which could be described best as a singing saw, it literally gets buried - eewh!

A strange little tune that is quite appealing in small doses. It's lively, but it's also quite bizarre. A very strange choice of instruments selected here; from harpsicord to a squeezed mouse full of helium. (what is that sound anyway).

Tho very strange in nature it's quite entertaining. certainly made me smile a wee bit.

Why upload an abandoned, buggy work? This makes no sense, it seems the arranger does not like it at all. The strange lead starting at 1:11 is one of the bugs (at least the choosen instrument). Any one remember the decent pseudo-drums in the original SID? Next time Karl, complete the work or trash it. But at least I like the end

I can't understand why this tune just gets average reviews. I think it's awesome, a mix of baroque and rock that rivals the work of Muse and Bach. Put the two together and you have music to accompany you into outer space. Fly away into an LSD dream world...this will augment your emotions and make you feel inspired.

wow, some harsh reviews here.

I adore this track personally, the harpsichord sounds great and the lead synth is unusual but fits so well.
