Comments: I liked writing Commander -track; Even so much that this version, that you now hear, is the third version. The first remix was made already in the beginning of the project - 24th August 2002. This new version was completed almost one year later.

Evokes a different kind of Starbase in my mind. But still, it IS a Starbase indeed!
Why is the key c instead of the original a?
A bit too long, I think.

I have to say, I like this remix alot. I barely recognized the theme the first time, given how much it has changed, but I love the changes made. I personally thought this suits it more than the original, thanks to the fact that it has that hasty feel to it.

Fart sounds rule. Let loose the farts of war! HAHA = - ) Great song with power photonic farts. Become one...with the fart.

Hopeless, down hearted feeling. Sounds good

I love the bit that starts at 3:38. It really drives home the discouraged, hopeless feeling that must have been a way of life for the humans until you arrive. Gives me goosebumps.

I love the busy urban beat in the background.

Listening this, you can just imagine the space station exploding into action when the Vindicator arrives: People running around corridors gearing up for repair and refit duty, scientists feverishly gathering up their notes for a report for the Captain, the shipboard crew hastily hitting the bar and getting plastered before they set off again... and in the middle of it all, Commander Hayes and Captain Zelnick calmly sit down somewhere for a bit of a chat.

This song brings the Earth station to life.

This is a great remix, but in order to feel the full effect of this song, you must play it in the game. The remix is faithful, but the "fart" is really annoying T_T.

I really like this update to the original track. The commander's theme was always one of my favorites and I love this version.

Stephen: The "Safety Dance"-ish part is actually the hook from the original. I'm guessing the sample everyone refers to as the "fart" sound is supposed to be some sort of industrial-sounding sample... but agreed, it doesn't really work right. I hadn't really noticed it before, but now it's bugging me a bit.

I've been a fan of your music ever since SC2 and I must say that this is excellent. It's certainly different than the original, but that's the entire point of creating a remix! The only thing that I slightly miss is the three note backing hook (using sample #4 in the MOD).

This one only barely resembles the Commanders soundtrack, at first I thought it's a variation of the battle theme. The original had a much more laid back and cool theme, the remix is too hectic and sounds a tad too desperate too.

November 15th, 2005 - 22:30:54

No, the this one may be more "artistic" but the old one was just so cool.

I agree with Clay Sills. Yuck! Way to many fart sounds. The Commander must have one in the tube ready to fire! Why is the 'fight' klaxon in this one? It shouldn't be there because you aren't under attack. Did I hear the safety dance (at 0:44)? I must be honest and say no to this one as in please no. Do not use this one.

Excellent. At first I thought that it was way too big a departure from the original, but now I've changed my mind. It's a perfect fit for the scene where you first meet the commander, and has more of an "Us against the universe" feeling than the original, which had an upbeat and optimistic tone (both moods fit pretty well though).

I love the remixes The Precursors make. This one sounds... how can I put this diplomatically? Why all the fart noises? Really. Listen to it. Starting about 24 seconds into it, it sounds like it was created under extreme gastro-intestinal distress. It's a great re-mix, but it sounds like it was recorded in the bowels of an elephant.

I just want to say that this song makes absolutely PERFECT background music for Warning Forever.

September 27th, 2004 - 22:29:03

Well...dunno about this. On itself it's not a bad track, especially after the first minute, but...well, with the old sound you had some 'combatant' mood in it, that this one lacks. You know like a "we're ready to fight" thingy...I dunno, something assertive.

The new one has that much, much less...and also, what the heck is that farthing sound doing in there?

This stuff is i.N.S.a.N.e. I mean, completely mind-blowing. Ultimate. Utterly Must-Have. Total. Reason to own a sound card. Wicked. Groovy. Attractive. The reason to have ears.
It is good to have ears.

I think this is still my favorite of the remixes produced thus far. Makes a great contrast with the Ur-Quan Kzer-Za theme, and the use of a wide array of musical tricks to create a feeling of tension and desperation is masterful. Definitely one of my absolute favorite electronic mood pieces -- I can see it being at home in any number of game or movie scores.

Once again, you've managed to take the original (already excellent) composition and improve upon it. I don't know what to say about this one; it has all of the elements I loved about the first, but sounding better, plus it mixes in more of a feel of "high tech despair" into the pot. Absolutely brilliant.

July 2nd, 2004 - 12:51:15

Favourite track so far ... lovely stuff.

July 1st, 2004 - 23:59:10

The more I listen to it, the more I like it. Great work.

May 28th, 2004 - 17:09:09

It's complelely different, and very good indeed, but somehow I like the original better. It's, kind-of, "home sweet home", you know? the music you always come back to and happy to hear, learning new reports, reading all those history bits, offloading minerals.. I guess I just grew attached to it :P
any chance of an unreleased bonus remix? ;)
