i liked that! shows the potential with these 24 tracks to make almost new songs. i wonder how easy it would be to splice freddie's vocals to make new phrases - anyway, well done.

Some of it is good, especially the parts with the live stuff coming in. But it doesn't escape the fact that it sounds like it's just highlighting parts that weren't so easy to hear before. Good but also not, you know?

I am also torn on this one.
I feel that it *almost* justifies itself by mixing in the live stuff at the end, and the build-new-from-components-of-old at the beginning. And the middle is fine, but Adam nailed it, it just highlights missing stuff without seeming like it's taking the song anywhere. The original, while seemingly a guitar solo justified by bookends, has an irresistible momentum.
It is good, and just shy of really good, and could be great, which is more than could be said of most of my mixes :)
