THC Flatline`s remix is a fine piece of work, but after LMan`s remix it`s apparent that it is further removed from the spirit of Yip`s composition. Flatline attempted to cover Yip`s famous hiscore tune here, but IMHO it was a big mistake even to think about covering this tune. It sounds just perfect on the SID chip itself, thank you, there`s no need to ruin it with ugly modern samplers, workstations and virtual analog synths. =) With that said, Flatline gave it everything he could to try to create a faithful cover, and while I`m sure that in the future virtual analog synth manufacturers will use his tune to demo the capabilities of their instruments, it still falls short of Yip`s amazing original. On a scale of 1-10 this cover gets 10 for effort and 10 for implementation, but since I gave Yip`s SID tune a 100 to begin with... (Yes, I am being too tough on Flatline, but hey - this is what I think! ;-) It`s very hard to cover tunes that exploit the capabilities of the SID chip so well.)
