Maindrian - Times of Lore (Retro Remix)
Review by Tas
The piece is what could be closely compaired to early 70's Mike Oldfield. Infact i wonder if Maindrain actually took inspiration from Mikes early work for this remix. I'm not saying this because of the guitar playing, but because of some very distinct rifts and styles what could be compaired to Oldfield himself.
I like this raw sound alot, the unapologetic nature of it's unpolished feel just adds to what the piece is all about. I doubt many will agree with my review as the style is very much an aquired taste. But at least for me i regard the remix very highly.

enhanced SID. Then it transforms
into an acoustic affair with plenty of nice guitars, which makes the remix
very organic, very human. It's a nice piece of work for sure, somewhat
reminiscent of early Mike Oldfield, but it has a missing ingredient. I don't
know what, but the lack of it dampens my enthusiasm towards this remix. Maybe
because nothing else is really supporting those guitars. Or because the final
mixing feels unpolished. Nevertheless, it's quite pleasant.
