OK so now the superlatives have run out in the dictionary. I’ll admit partiality to this song bed from before it appeared here, but this mix is just utterly fantastic. I can’t help but compare and while the old one was dark and smooth this has so much more depth and character. Like the difference between wandering into the shadows or spending extended time exploring all it’s possibilities with intention.

I’m not real familiar with Kristin’s pellas but her vocals here have that edginess that just fits so perfectly with the feel of all the elements. The added guitars are blisteringly hot. I try to hold back a little when I review your stuff because I want to save something for next time, but no hold back here, this is the whole package and another testament to your extraordinary talent and range as both a songwriter and producer.

Please correct your notes however, as I think they should read “200 mixes ago.” I’m with you all the way on the “take back” campaign :-).

Oh yes. Very much yes.

I’m 100% with you on the concept of reclaiming those little seeds out there and applying them to something more worthwhile.

And this is definitely it. These vocals are about 112 times better for your music. Simply fantastic.

you’ve just totally made my day/week/month on several levels .

* I have often secretly thought about a reclaim my remix campaign as well. I’m grateful that you haven’t just thought about it, but jumped with both feet. That encourages me to do the same for a couple of mine, and I hope some others will do the same. May lots of little phoenixes rise.

* Let me start this point by saying that your original remix around the other vocal track was stunning and remains amongst my all-time favorites. I remember to this day exactly the moment and how thunderstruck I felt when I heard that remix for the first time.

Now I hear this new version and have to 300% agree (after re-listening to the other one, just to be sure), that this one is an order of magnitude better, because it sounds like it was absolutely always meant to be this way with this voice and this song and this tempo and this key.

* If the first remix was a rocket lifting into space (not so subtle hint requesting another reclaimed remix), the new guitar work is a booster-rocket, making the remix fly faster and higher.

Simply amazing.

what programs did you use 200 years ago- they sound pretty good considering they may have been made out of flint:)!
Really damned good.

Like this alot, lots of layers but never gets too muddy and enough variation and catchiness to keep ears interested

this is the kind of track that makes you stop & re-work whatever creation of the ego had you buzzin’. kristin’s voice & the lyrics put you on notice right away that you’re about to be changed by what you hear. and i was. music & production are straight up pro quality. much enjoyed.

So your back?

So your mix sounds exactly right for the vocal style (nothing new here), but what i really like is the rugged overall style to the track. The drums are plenty lo-fi and the vinyl is always a sound i like to hear (you’ve probably noticed :o).

The synth riff is also really effective. Matches the track style perfectly.

The chorus has real impact and the introduction of guitar is amazing (again compliments the track style 100%). Too few tracks have that solo that guns and roses used to religiously use.

As tony the tiger would say… Greeeat.

Allright, get on stage with this ! It’s great ! I like the drive, the chords, the sounds, the voice… I like it all ! We want more ! Why can’t I recommend it twice ?

Really nice mixture/juxtaposition of rust and sleek here; if I said I wasn’t kinda jealous of your ability to preserve a pella’s feel/direction while putting a unique, polished spin on it, I’d be lying through my teeth.

Wanted to cover this one, but I think you did the ultimate one.
Cannot do anything whithout this on my mind.
Your work is great, and it is obvious too.

yeah, at the risk of sounding redundant, this sounds great.

No comment is `redundant’, without them we have nothing in this electronic void.

Its been a while for me now mixing online but i can tell you it still matters when something i do connects with someone else and they say so.

Thanks to everyone else who gave a little ray here. :-)

WOW! It’s all been said already, much more eloquently than I can given my visceral reaction to this unwaivering track. So I’ll just repeat myself, WOW!
