Rexy here again. Thank you for the feedback on the original Sound of

Speed version; we've taken it to heart (well, at least I did) and have

come together with a polished up mixdown. All information in regards

to the arrangement process can be seen in the original decision


I admit, I was annoyed to see the track get pulled from the TBP list

the first time around but the general feedback issued from the

original submission was definitely a good foundation to improve on.

Here I improved on the drum programming and humanised the organ part

on the intro, while it was up to Brandon to take all the production

concerns and address them here. We've received good feedback from CHz,

TO and OA for this one, and I hope what we've done is enough to get it

ready for primetime.

In its original form, I noticed that it became one of the project

favorites among fans (most common reason being the SMS cameos), and

that alone spurred me to encourage Brandon to co-operate with this

resub. In both cases, he was a pleasure to work with, we DID do a

second arrangement together since the project's release, and we were

glad to be part of the overall process.

I hope you receive this track well, and thank you in advance for your

considerations :)

Peace out,



The mixdown is better, things don't feel quite as crushed together this time around. The drums are still a little muddy for me, I would've liked some more powerful highs to bring them out of the dry background. The guitar is the same as before, so any judges who had issue with the timing will find the same problem. I don't mind the timing on the guitar. This is polished enough to pass for me, although I think it could be slightly more polished, there's no real need to do it if the artists are happy with it.

I liked this before, so I'm just going to copy the nice things I said from my last vote.

Great arrangement. Straightforward, but still expands. ... Love the organ stuff at 2:20.

Still some really minor timing issues on the rhythm guitar, but to err is human, right? Or something. Anyway, just like last time, not a dealbreaker.

Let's just get this thing posted.
