The mix sounds pretty muddy, which I think is its main sin. The shredded guitars are awesome, the drumming is pretty good, too, but it all sounds washed together.
Noisy mix, me ears bleeds. The cover is inspired but the sound is really draft. An ancoder problem? A mix problem? What pity!
Doing something with Commando that sounds different in 2020 is no small feat
Classic Puffy64 sound. It's nice but not on par with modern production standards.

Classic Puffy64 sound. It's nice but not on par with modern production standards. I wonder if this is something new or a something that had been lying in the closet for well over a decade. It does sound like something that would've easily been made in the early 2000s. Well, on the other hand, listening to it, I can't help but feel as if time froze solid and the all those days never passed us by. But anyway: the guitars conflict with the SID sounds and the tone's a bit harsh. Also, the drums need to be more cutting in such a dense arrangement. Seems like there's too much going on. I do like the playing with the pinch harmonics and tasty bends though. So yeah, it's a mixed bag.
