Heard of you through your collab w/ Sir_F, and wanted to stop by and say I really like your music. :) This one is great, so like S_F said, don't be hard on yourself. I had to check out the original, to compare and such. I can hear the original in yours, but yet it's unique. I really like it and sadly cannot offer much more input than that...except that I really like that ringing/harp-like sound at the very beginning. It's quiet, but just there enough to grab me. :)
Don't be too critical on yourself...
You've done a good job at a remake, now that I've heard the original. I'm more interested in the part where it goes all GrayZ like. Because that's the part that will stand out the most.
What I hear so far does deviate from the original, which is a good thing. And it does it well. I can hear the original in my head a bit, and the whole thing keeps counterpointing. Makes me happy. =3
Mixing is pretty good, and the instrumentation is great. Just keep going and don't crush yourself before you have a chance. You're doing great, and you can do this.
Let me know when this is done!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
