Nice guitar work, and great strings. I love it when the vocals and music sounds as though they were made for each other. Great job with that as well. Very good.

Yeah. That’s correct.The guitar & the vibraphon excellent. IMHO children choir not.

ok…i have to say this…you did a better job than ANYONE else on this site so far that i’ve heard of splitting up Lisa’s voice and timing it to your song….period. i think there are parts where the background chords have a bit too much release, so they kind of run in to the next chord progression…but that’s just my picky ears working. the guitar is PERFECT…the beat is PERFECT…the timing is absolutely PERFECT. this should have started out as a 5.00 and stayed there.

i like how you placed the vocals. very natural sounding. the mix is very nice and balance. real nce clever nuiances. only issue i have is an odd accidental in the decending walking bass, some weird harmonic suggestions. other than that, real nice downtempo track here..

indeed a tremendous fit for the vocals and taps into the inherent soul in the feel of the origina vocals (yes, I mean soul as in the genre, listen to Lisa’s original track it’s there — most of the remixes here have stripped that for some reason)

However I just can’t give a 5 to a remix that ignores the key change at the ‘come fair maidens’ section — the vast majority of Cuckoo remixes have missed this as well so I don’t mean to pick on you, it’s just that this is a clear case where I think it’s the only difference between perfection and well, seriously huring the mix.
