Ever forward. This is just fan-bleepin-tasticly flawless. The change up in instrumentation after the first break was a nice little surprise. Great piece.

Thank you very much for your kind words.

Love the deep-pocket this groove sits in. The chorus is surprising in a very good way. You’ve taken this pella in a superb minor direction; Reminiscent of Stephen Wilson. Love it…. Going straight to my favs.

Thanks, Joe! Steven Wilson is one of my musical heroes, so it is a very nice reading this. Ofcourse, that Wilson boy is many lightyears ahead of me.

love the Indo-European exotica flavour of this offering. It takes one somewhere else-where (like many of your pieces).
Nice work.

I feel the same about your offerings, Anchor. So I very much appreciate your comment. Thanks for your continuing support.

this has so much that I like, the intro, the percussion, it lovely and dark—-ooh and all that even before the chorus hit—now that is a nice surprise—works very well.—must go check out the other one.

That’s a lot of praise coming from someone who does these kinda tunes a lot better than I can. I am already looking forward to your secret mixter upload.

between you and me I am in panic mode over this secret mixter thing—-thanks though—-

Spatial. Cinematic. Rhythmic. Cool mix, S. Like it alot.
permalink   Subliminal Mon, Jun 14, 2010 @ 10:59 AM
Cinematic. There is that word again. I should start writing for film. ;-) Thanks for listening and commenting.

What an unexpected setting for this pella. Had problems with it on first listen but loved it after the second try.

The dark minor chords changes Snowflake’s beautiful and heartfelt wedding lyric to a desperate plee. I’m speechless. This is just fantastic!

Thank you, Per. I had to melodyne Snowflake so her vocals would fit in with the sitar-ish piece with which the remix starts and which I had lying around for some time. But ofcourse that took the pella into a different direction than the original. So I can understand the problems you had during the first listen. I am glad that you gave it a second try and that you like it.

If I were an Editor I’d Ed Pick this in a nanosecond. It’s beyond outstanding. I always think that set Emily’s voice any way you like, it’ll come out sounding gorgeous. But I love the dark, exotic and exciting slant you’ve given to this tender song. So …. lost for words now ….. xxxx

I agree and how much does it cost to be an Editor or whats the requirements a degree in Music? would it not be a conflict of interest that way? thou…either way it is its really not choosen by the people non artists i understand that general public dosn’t come here its kinda like socalism? going to take up humor classess got to find some humor in the insanity.

And so am I. This comment is worth many Ed pick’s.

Dig the Orchestration Melodic tones of the piece along with vocals it a Masterpiece of Sync of Sound with Emotion Cinematric also, would fit in a Dramatic Movie. Some people may not especially like this cause it may make them look into the reflection to find themself its hard to live on a dance floor especially when its empty. Great Piece!!

And a great review too. Thanks for that.
permalink   Mon, Jun 14, 2010 @ 9:35 AM
With the composition you went into a risky direction - and you were fully right. Great track, love it!
permalink   Subliminal Mon, Jun 14, 2010 @ 11:33 AM
Thanks! It was not intentional to go into a risky direction. I only thought that the vocals could work with the theme at the beginning. And from there it took its own course (which doesn’t mean that it wasn’t a bumpy ride).

Wow, I hope so strongly you will continue your Emily-series.
Your interpretations of the songs work so well, really outstanding tracks.
permalink   Subliminal Mon, Jun 14, 2010 @ 11:38 AM
It was not my intention to remix them all. Don’t get me wrong. I like Emily’s voice and songs very much, but that’s no guarantee for a decent idea. At least not for me. Thanks for stopping by.
permalink   Donnie Drost Tue, Jun 15, 2010 @ 11:00 AM
I’m sure it doesn’t matter what you’ll remix next - I’ll probably like it!
permalink   Mon, Jun 14, 2010 @ 11:12 AM
wow. this is unique, beautiful, polished, intricate…

amazing how your voicings are so entirely different yet work so perfectly…..

i would ed pick this if my voice wasn’t included….stellar production and creativity on this mix. thank you for including me!
permalink   Subliminal Mon, Jun 14, 2010 @ 11:41 AM
The pleasure was all mine. Looking forward to how your project will evolve. I am hooked already, that’s for sure.
permalink   Mon, Jun 14, 2010 @ 11:30 AM
Allright, I am going to jump on board with everyone else. Dramatic, engaging, downright beautiful. Reminds me a little of(and may be better than) Special Cases by Massive Attack. Great work!
permalink   Subliminal Mon, Jun 14, 2010 @ 11:45 AM
I am not familiar with Special Cases, but I am familiar with Massive Attack and like them a lot. So that’s another reference I read with pleasure. Thanks!

Absolutely exquisite — the exotic tones and rhythms seductively complimenting the purity of Snowflake’s voice. And then there’s the dynamics…which I think are in a class of their own. WOW!!!!
permalink   Subliminal Tue, Jun 15, 2010 @ 7:46 AM
Thank you, Susan. I didn’t expect the comments to be so positive. All very much appreciated.

sorry I’m late to the party with this review: what a great piece - fabulous concept and arrangement; off the beaten path enough to intrigue, yet tastefully accessible.

Thank you very much. Better late than never…;-)
