Marcel Donné - Phantoms Of The Asteroid
Marcel Donné Veteran

All-Time charts position:
This one got axed from the Sidologie CD as it didn't really fit the mood with the rest of the album.
Phantastic! Another masterpiece by Donné! As if the original SID and the Jarresque style were made for each other! Added to my collection.
My all time fave SID tune given a Jarre touch nad they mix together like they were made for each other. I love it.
Very good, I wonder if the start was influenced by "Mission to the asteroid" by Michael Land, from the terrifyingly beautiful soundtrack of The Dig.

Ok, Marcel as usual made, technically, a perfect work as near everything sounds very good, BUT i really can't stand the lead: it sounds too loud and, in my opinion, it isn't equalized in the right way with the rest of the track.
In other words i think that with a more appropriate lead instrument this remix could be easily sold as a commercial work, but now, with this jarring (i mean strident) melody, i wouldn't put it on my radio-car with someone else to listen with me.

MMMMM... lets just have a listen.
Starts with a nice lil string pad arrangement that really doesnt seem to have much to do with the actual sid but this originality you come to expect from mr donne, there are however slight sid noises running through beautifully along with what sounds like someone with currybelly groaning and the odd clang of a metal object... rising synths.. then it all fades away slightly to reveal the real start of the tune with a fast but not thumping drum beat beginning to play and the instantly recognisable bleeps come.. its phantom of the asteroids alright And its a more than decent version of it.
As usual the sample quality is top notch, the arrangement near to perfect as it could be, the whole thing oozes marcel quality and is well worth having a listen too. if i was going to introduce someone to RKO by showing them a tune,
This wouldnt be the 1st but it'd be in the top 10 without a doubt.
A recommended download if ever i heard one.
