Unfinished? You must be joking.

So, you ruined the intro with a few gratuitous (and utterly useless) piano notes, and you copied the synth-pad track on digital piano and mixed that onto the track. The only thing you managed to achieve was a complete destruction of the serene spaciousness of the track.

You added nothing except for a carbon copy of the synth pads and a few chord-tones in the intro!

Its like 2 new instruments added, i know it already has some strings but you can barely hear them, that "nothing" does ALOT for this song, its strings plus piano AND a whole new piano solo.

...which does nothing except thicken the orchestration. And your 'solo' consists of a few unimaginative chord-tones.

Thickening the orchestration serves no purpose whatsoever here, as there is no thinly orchestrated section to contrast it to. Disregarding for a moment that the synth strings and piano take up roughly the same section of the acoustic spectrum here (and thus drown each other out), the added piano track would have little or no perceptible result. You seem to think that anything that sounds consonant and boring suits the song, and you obsessively tell us that you are sheer genius, but you still come up with the same kind of junk as a year ago. You are not improving, if only because you are too arrogant to learn from anything or anyone.

Say what you want, all that matters is that i KNOW that it makes the song alot better, its about feeling, the song was empty as it was.

And with those words, you again condemn yourself to a life of mediocrity. You just refuse to be the least bit critical of yourself, and that is the worst trait a musician could possibly have.

To me, TATDOOL (along with, let's be frank, virtually all of Queen's catalogue) is perfect in it's arrangement, production, and thought as to what is and isn't in the final mix.  Whether any of us actually like specific songs is however always open to questions of personal preference, but the view that this track, or any others, are not complete arrangement-wise simply cannot be justified.

I haven't listened to your mix, but don't need to know that it doesn't improve on the original - the most that you could say about it is that it is a different version/mix.

If you think you've improved the song it in any way, you're delusional. I have a feeling the band had a better idea how they wanted the song to sound.... than you! I'm also pretty sure no ones gives a fuck whether you think the song is unfinished.

Well, I'm real sure lots of people are listening to "your" music. Maybe Brian should start getting in touch with you, so you can help improve all his recordings for him!
