Review by datucker (08/02/2004)

Let's face it: this is a damn good Jarre'ish remix. It reminds one immediately of Jarre's Oxygene part 2 when it has just started. It builds up, leaving the 70's Jarre-sound smoothly and then turns into a quite modern track. Great job!

Basically, this mix is not bad at all. The atmosphere is good but the mix could have been mixed somewhat more 'spatial'.

What makes this mix sounding not very good? The sounds used as snaredrum are very soon getting (very very) annoying in my opinion. If these are replaced, it would be a bigger pleasure to listen to this mix.

I'm impressed! This mix is good. Nice and gentle sounds with different effects which create a nice laid-back sphere. There's no overkill of sounds mixed together: the mix is quite plain and simple despite of the variety of sounds that is used in the mix. That is what makes it worth to listen to. However the snaredrums in this mix could have been a little more punchy, this remix is a great job done by BaR!

Orchestral remakes seem to be quite popular now. This is another one. The arrangement is good. The choosen sounds are good. In a musical way the remake is good.

The only flaw of this remake is that (no offence to LaLa!) it just doesn't sound like a orchestra. I think that is due to the equipment used: I hear a synth trying to sound like an orchestra but which is still a synth. If this remake would be remastered using some high-end equipment, it really could sound way cool because from a musical view it is good!

This remake of Lightforce is basically interesting. I say basically because I like idea but the sounds are a bit too agressive. The mixing is not very good. It sounds somehow a bit LoFi, it doesn't have much stereo effects. Besides the different channels aren't well balanced: sometimes one channel overtakes all others because it's just to loud. It's like listening to some old radio-cassette-tape which is very, very old.

In brief: the musical idea is good :-), the mixing-part could be done better.
