This may be unpopular, but although I usually love your mixes, I'm not keen on this one, Piotre. Technically, it's excellent, as usual, but where I keep wanting it to 'let rip', the guitar is muted, and it feels a bit deflated because of that.

I realise you tried to do something different with this, and the video is excellent, but in my opinion, the "guitar and drums" is a little overused.

I do like the intro, though, and the pause after the guitar solo, with the "For we who grew up tall and proud, In the shadow of the mushroom cloud" part being particularly effective.

I just feel that this track needs to be loud and heavy to maintain it's impact. :)

Well said Lord, I know that this HTF version is not that heavy like the original one, especially in some spots, but like you said, I was going to create something different :-) It's pretty hard to please everybody at once ;-)

Thanks!

I actually agree, the original version is a "True Rocker" and serves the track well, but saying that I do like this mix. It's nice sometimes to hear a track "Toned Down" so well done!!! & keep 'em coming :-)


Joyful the sound

You are a very creative guy. I would never go that road for a HTF mix, this is really a new version of the song, and very well mixed. Should I Dare to say this would be how it would have sounded in Hot Space? :)

Cheers,

I actually really like this mix! Gives the song a nice compare/contrast, light/shade feel. It works really well! Five star job!
