Sitting here listening to this song over and over with the rain pouring outside...it really fits smoothly together.

Er on that same note, so does sitting there at 3:40 in the morning, listening to this while staring at the moon because you have nothing better to do.

I put duct tape over the lights on my monitor because they were bothering me that night >_<.

Im a weirdo. Good mix.

You say this remix helps get You're Not Alone out of your head? For me it does just the opposite. I absolutely love this remix. The more I listen to it, the more I can't get it out of my head. And dare I say it? I think I like this version better than the actual You're Not Alone. But djpretzel, you're one of the best remixers on the site, if not the best. So I guess I wouldn't expect anything less from you. Amazing remix!

I have a problem with this remix. Its really, really good. I had my doubts at the beginning (which does sound a bit like Cops..) but after I had listened to the whole thing I knew I was going to be obsessed for a longgg time.

FFIX completely aside (that is, the original song aside,) this mix has sex appeal. And I rarely say that about songs. But sex, if you didn't know, is very good.

Ahh, the attraction level of intangible things.

OH and I love the Underworld reference. :D

Heh, I laughed out loud once this song got going. After listening to a lot of techno and trance remixes, and a couple piano ones, this reggae-styled electronica meet string chord song just threw me off entirely--but worry not, it did so in a positive way. I loved it, and while I couldn't listen to it in excess, that first time is such a charmer. Thanks for the beat!

As it turns out, I happened to come across this song through ormgas while fairly drunk. Due solely to the comment in the review about inebriation, I felt the need to comment that yes, indeed, I am considering this a really neat song. Will I still think that tomorrow? Probably - I'm paying attention to the amount of variation, and this level is pretty high. The instruments also seem pretty realistic, and there are some neat harmonies. So, while I might not have given it a 5/5 on ormgas if I was sober, I would almost certainly have given it at least a 4 ;).

Dude, is this your first try at reggae? I don´t know how reggae is going to sound, but this is awesome, so I don´t care. VERY funky, I liked that organ/synth/bagpipe that played the melody, and the bass, DUDE, this is all just a great proof why pretzeldude has the legal rights to own this site. Hyper Kudos for making such a masterpiece, the name is hard to remember though.

And I know where I remember this musicstyle from some game, but which?

I am cursed by Monkey Island, because that's what all reggae-ish music sounds like to me now.

THAT´S IT!

djpretzel for president.

This is an awesome remix. When I first heard it, I was made a reaction similar to "ubuuhh?" This mix is very different. Like I think "You Are Not Alone", I don't think awesome reggae dub etc. You used a lot of big words in your write up that I'm not familiar with. I don't know the first thing about remixing and synthesizers and Frooty looops and whatnot, but I do know a good remix when I hear one.

10/10

Yeah, this was an awesome mix back in the day, plus it completely holds up now. It's a drastically different take on the original that I enjoy for its sheer interpretiveness. It's got a great groove and really unique textures. I do wish the track had a bit more overt melodic focus, but that's only because I think it would appeal to others more that way. I personally love it as is. Looking at when it was posted (October 2002), I get nostalgic about including this one back on my radio show, even before it became VG Frequency. Really well-polished, this was indicative of OCR's quality and professional quality as well, even if it was less consistent at the time.

I was surprised to see the date. It's rock solid. I especially like that little thing done with the violin (and later guitar), that "stuttering attack" thing. Things like that make sampled instruments go a mile longer than when played "as is". Heck, of course they're good on real recorded takes too. :) This is a fine track in all the other respects as well (and yeah, I'm reminded of Monkey Island too), but that's a great detail!
