Visually this demo looks oldskool and average but oh those samples. Still sounds hot, considering this is now 25 years old! Big props to Cycleburner for this eargasm.

Can only agree, Jucke, this was a jaw-dropper, not only because of the combination of digi and good code, but due to the extremely pure cool design. Turn up the volume on your C= monitor and freak out!

I'd say this is THE sample demo on c64. To this day no other comes even close. When it came out in 1989 everyone was simply blown away, having any kind of visuals while running samples was a bit sensational and the way Cycleburner used and arranged those samples was just above all standards of the time. I remember how the madonna ohmygod part just made my jaw drop in my boyroom in 1989, and to this day it still impresses people who see it for the first time. Ed thinks of me when he hears this because i always bring a disk with this demo to parties to be run on the bigshit. Always. It's simply top priority.

Hm. Don't you think that if approx. the 400 downloads would correspond to fairly 400 votes for (whatever) demo would make a difference to the top 10 (of all time as you describe it) rather than an obviously unfair down vote?

hcl, for all what I know this picture comes in hires in a c= demo disk, now it may be the case that simply turning mc on and setting up colors will look strangely ok right away...
