really nice one, perhaps too "complicated" for my ears here and there..

Excellent tune... One of my favorites ;)... Hein for God ;) ... the bass instrument is so neat! ... Style-wise a bit MoNish - I guess that is on purpose... Excellent chord-progressions here and there and a cool lead! Now while listening ... this is my #1 from the party!

hein is always underrated in music compos. *at least* top 10 material.

in a best-chord-progression-in-the-chorus compo it would win hands down. what a composition! tight, balanced and full of surprises.

totally groovy dance tune, with feelings in the lead. sounds are pretty good. i gave this 10, i will do it again now. this tune has no confusion or strange things, it goes straight in.

#14? What the hell? Wonderful chorus and a very good tune.

Maybe a slightly more "cleaner" approach to the sounds and arrangement would've worked better. Now it feels a bit stuffed at some points. Maybe it's because the chords and bass seem to go a bit too near to each other. I can't really put my finger on it though...

Nevertheless my favourite tune from X08 and one of the few thought out compositions, where every part has it's own role in the progression of the song, like the release of tension in the chorus.

A very unusual piece, if you know (and love) Hein's usual (which is by no means "usual") stuff.

The title is very fitting. I can hear some known styles there. All nicely wrapped up the Hein way.

It had some hard competition though. It definitely belongs to the top 10.
