Excellent track. Really. Blows me away.

Reminds me of Gorillaz's "Clint Eastwood" at times. Guitarwork is superb, and the instruments are chilling, ambient and give a confined feeling along with the echoing of Dan's voice.

Nice work, all three of you. Certainly my favorite lyrical remix now.

Edit: By the way, just so's y'all know, Lea was right. It's Lorenzen's Soil, as stated here in bold letters:

This is probably my favorite vocal ReMix because of Dan's voice. I never knew it was so amazing! zyko's rapping was a really cool additon since you wouldn't expect to hear something like it in a song with this tone. Vigilante's guitar playing is as awesome as ever, too! Nice job, guys!

This song really lends itself well to depressing visual scenes much like one would find in the night of a back alley somewhere.

Dan B's vocals really make this song great, but I felt zyko's rapping was a bit out of place. Still a great song though; I'll be listening to it for a long while.

I'm probably going to get an ass-load of people disagreeing with this, but I think Dan B. sings like some sort of male Bjork, which I'd have to say is a good thing. Personally.

Oh, and I'd have to agree that I don't like the rap, but I think it's executed well. I just don't enjoy it.

Wow. I don't post, but this was an awesome remix. I typically hate lyrics, but this was a very well done piece. Heck, I typically hate rap, but you guys did that very well. Still, personally, I think I would prefer it without the rap.
Amazing job across the board! Congrats guys.

Wow. Listening to this mix was surreal. I mean, if you had told me this was an Earthworm Jim 2 remix I would have checked the phone books for the nearest asylum. I have to say that no mix is perfect and I can find a couple gripes with it. Don't get me wrong on the vocals, I love them. They're up there with the best, quite possibly, the best. However, I felt they wavered a little. It's a great voice but it sounds like it could get some more polish and be outstanding. If he doesn't already, DB should take some vocal lessons. He'd benefit greatly from them.

As far as the rap goes, it fits in quite well. It makes me think of maybe a collab between U2 and Snoop Dogg. I bet that'd really kick ass. Anyway, the rap is done really well but I have to say that every time I listen I wince really bad on the word "fervorous." It's the way he REALLY enunciates each syllable that bothers me. I think on that particular word, less is more. heh

Don't take my griping as disliking the song. On a scale of ten, it'd be at least a 9.5 easily. I'm just making a suggestion here and there to help improve those little nuances that prevent the mix from being that perfect ten. Well done.

THis song is really amazing. The electro rock and the first section of vocals is just great. I love it at 1:25. Then comes the awesome rap. It sounds like that group "faithless" and their song "Insomnia". The way the rap moves in and just wow.. thank god that agents haven't found you yet. because then this stuff wouldn't be free =D

its awesome... i mean the mix of singing and the rapping...i was a bit put off to hear that before listening to it, but i listen to it.. it reminded me heavily of the gorillaz and i thought it worked well in there, id like to hear more collaborative ideas from the 3

I've listened to this song 42 times. The singing is just perfect, although zyko's rapping initially bothered me, it's starting to sound quite cohesive. Excellent production.
