Great intro- I love the bassoon sound for melodies, and when the oboe comes in later, it works equally well. The flow on this one is perfect, and the song seems a lot shorter than it really is; excellent transitions and texture changes. The synths that subtly color some passages are perfectly chosen.

This is probably the best DS mix i've heard. Awesome stuff.

The other week, while I was driving home after a long day of work, I had a sequence of notes playing in my head and knew there was a track that I wanted to hear. A beautiful, moving piece of music that would help me forget my troubles. But I couldn't place what it was or mentally finish the tune myself. When I got home, I searched my player for it. To my discredit, it was amongst music I hadn't listened to for many months but, once I played it, I immediately and completely knew why I had to hear it again.

I've been mostly absent for quite a while, but some of what I've found here seems to stay with me.

Sorry for short-shrifting you, Darke. This has been at the top of my to-review list since I first heard it, and I'm hardly giving it the descriptors it deserves. I suppose I'm not much of a reviewer anymore... not that I was ever one to begin with. But I wanted to let you know that I agree. Well, that is, there are things you have done since that I haven't yet heard. However, freezing time from back then until now, this is your best work on ocr, and it's absolutely stunning.

Thank you for making it.

Actually prefer the original's more solemn tone.. (not a big fan of that scratchy back beat in the Seal remix) just wish it was as clear..

Guess I'll just have to accept what I've got.. FWIW  A Deus Ex Harpa is as good as any of the songs I have from the original OSTs.

Such an incredible piece, my wish would be to have a five minute updated version of the original in FLAC, I love it so much.
