Story
My first 64-remix of one of my all time favorite C64 tunes. I used sounds from the A-Station, Morpheus, M-VS1 and Audity 2000. The solo sound is the original 64-sound, blended with an SB Live synth sound. The Audity broke down during the creation of the mix. Luckily I could more or less fix it myself. I didn't want to wait weeks to get it repaired.

Really good extended one with chillin' drums... Well choosen instruments and delays
Nostalgy at it's best!
Was'nt into the demo scene, just a regular gamer... But hearing this... Well. I missed out didn't I?!
Classic! Added to my collection.
It's outstanding.
I don't know what it is with this song. Is it the very good intro, the 80' rhythm, or the whole? But I dig this track a lot. It could be made better with proper mastering, but I don't want to give a Very Good just because of that.
My fav Alibi remix. So fresh, rich and uplifting.

Thanks for doing one of the classics. Laxity has always been one of my favourites, and too few people look in the direction of the demo-scene and non-gamemusic.

I think you captured the mood very well, and I enjoy this version as much as I enjoy the original. Very balanced sound, though not especially original. But then again, many of Laxity's tunes are close to perfect. So why alter them just for the sake of doing it? You've managed to make this tune sound better than it did on solo sid, without destroying the melody and feel. That's an accomplishment by itself.

After listening to this for a long time now, I have to give full marks on grounds of the nostalgic impression and balanced sound. This is wonderful listening!

Great version of an excellent song!!
One of my favorites when working on something new!!!!!!
Tunes like this should be used more often as a base to create a remix!
Especially for all those people that were not into games that much!!

Man, what can I say, I'm blown away!!

Good arrangement, and perfect instruments, and a flawless conversion of the lead. The lead sound is a perfect nostalgic link back to the original SID version, it reminds me so much of it

10/10 from me, thank you so much for doing this tune!!

Just sounds a bit too shallow and repetitive for my liking, the clapping gets a bit annoying, the background beat sounds a bit overbearing and the lead is whiny and without any passion. I actually think this is one of the weaker sounding remixes of this tune. I actually prefer listening to the original SID. I like Darkman's remix a lot more.
