Review by ms (07/01/2006)

It's quite obvious that Endrŏdy has the talent to score for an orchestra. I really like the beginning and the solo cello fulfills the tragedy of David Whittaker's melody, this instrumentation is wisely chosen. While I wouldn't use the harp as bass (2 players needed), I would have gone for the double bass, even solo. I needed to go further into the arrangement, but I believe the best choice had been a piano. At 01:41 the lead is assigned to the solo violin, while the cello plays a somewhat counterpoint part. Classic choice. The style changes a little bit at 02:19, introducing typical 'Tango' style. This is an interesting idea, anyway it doesn't made me musically happy since I expected something else. Anyway there's nothing wrong about. Sometimes I hear the 'machine gun effect', when using the same samples in repetitions but overall the samples are very good. I really appreciated the arrangement and dynamics Endrŏdy shows up here. It's quite classic, which is not everybody's fav, but I can really recommend to take some listenings. I'd like to hear more from him.

Well, many people complain about less reviews. And this is my attempt to review things I have not so much knowledge about as it comes out as a scooter-like techno piece. So it may be a little bit vague reviewing this from my side :-)

Anyway here we go: When I got the first beta from DHS I was very curios about the final version and it worked out much better I ever thought. This is from my view due to several reasons. One of it is as always something different, something creative with parts you didn't expect in a techno track. But if you carefully listen to his music you can always expect something special from him.

The smooth orchestral/choir part beginning at 01:00 and ending at 02:00 is my favourite one. Very often remixers/musicians are put into one ore more categories of musical styles. While leaving this path it always interesting to get results which make hungry for more - which means I would love to hear orchestral work from him. As I know how the choir was done since I am using the same base material it is easy to say he combined male and female very well.
The quality of the orchestral AKAIs could have been better since I am very spoiled, anyway this doesn't influence the quality of the notes played with it :-)
At least very nice to have an orchestral DHS and just can say I would love to hear more different styles from him.

Well, back to the techno parts scooty Makke has done excellent work. I have heard some of his work also on other (non-remixes) pieces and really like his work as much as in this track.

Mixing and mastering isn't my best topic but shortly to say the track is well mixed for my ears on my gear. The mastering fits well since the orchestral part has a good dynamic range while the rest is on high level you would expect for this track. At 02:54 I hear an overload on my gear which seems to come out as my 'typical DHS crackle' *lol* Well, I have heard some 'overloads' on MD SIDologie too which no one could hear. Seems that this is just bloody me since I go for lower level mastering.

Finally top professional stuff, which didn't let me stop tapping with my feets, yup me techno aversional. The rules for reviewing say: "If you didn't like the original, better not review the remix".
Ooppss. Sorry :-)

People know that i am not a dance fan at all, but this is a must-have. Awesome in all three categories the tune is very professional and did not get boring even if it lasts 6 minutes. Ballad,Pop,Dance and Trance arranged with excellent transitions. More than innovative are the voices saying "Back in Time..." in Thanatos melody - stunning !!!
