"early... *80s"

plus it provides a nice bunch of music in a quite handy size, what I as a coder always love :)

Maybe it's just a matter of taste, I like the 70s/early disco style of this one very much, imho its among the best of your recent works :)

Sometimes these comments come out as being harsh, when they aren't meant to. Also, I should praise the tracks I like, rather than commenting on those that have minor details I don't like so much - just less of a time consumer to write one comment rather than 10. I love that your tracks sound unique, that you do not try to cater this commen perception of the right way to SID, don't change that please :). For what it's worth: I genuinely think you show exceptional talent for composing music.

I didn't take the comment as a bad thing but just felt like offering my own critique also - no worries.

@saulc12: first of all i hope you didn't take my comment as a bad thing but only plain criticize. and pls do continue make more tunes and the practice is the right word . the scene need more musicians and every tune which is released is kind of a bless for us, back to the point:
the tune got nice melody after a while but the intro of the tune is kind of repetitive and not so interesting , maybe a usage of other instruemetns could make better for you . i am a musician but a listener so take it easy ;-)

Sorry it's not everybody's cup of tea, I was trying to do a simple high energy arcade style theme - the sort of thing you would hear on one of the many vertical scrolling shooters in the early 80's, hope I caught that vibe, but I must admit it is a bit repetitive.

I like the Billie Jean reference, but after that I think it looses some momentum. The melody material is good though! Usually a fan of your music, but this one doesn't quite peak with me :)
