Kudos to this remix! It sent a shiver up my spine and an aural-gasm at the same time!

I do not get the same enjoyment with the remix as I felt with the original. Same thing happens with hyperspace. I think Yehat and Hyperspace where so f**cink good that we just want a remix that sounds like the original with new instruments, the closer the better

This song... I listened to it for a good while, and unfortunatly, I was greatly dissappointed. I could only listen to it once before I couldn't anymore. Just as other people say, it doesn't have that drive of honor, the power... it's pretty calm for such a mighty war race. I mean... when I was going to listen to this, I was expecting a strong, stable beat... but that isn't in this.

I really like your other remixes a lot... and I wish the project would continue... but it surprises me that my favorite race ended up with my least favorite remix. Sorry.

Dunno why, but it gave me major vibes of the main theme of Streets of Rage 1. Just has that early 90's 16-bit videogame feel to it.

Which isn't a bad thing, mind you... but what a previous poster wrote about a more military-sounding tune was pretty spot on.

I can rest-assuredly say that this particular rendition of the Yehat them may not be what I consider to be the absolute BEST, but it's a darn close second! (The first-best, in my opinion, would be the "Yehat Revolution Mix" available at The Pages of Now and Forever.) Still, this does sound pretty darn good behind and around Bruce Leyland's voiceacting. Man, Bruce did a GREAT job of bringing heart, soul, and ultimately a true LIFE to the Yehat... I was so moved during that line about how the Captain caused so much turmoil within the clans... It's a darn shame he never did anything else...

Um...anyway... Darn good tune! Pretty good for the pre-revolution Yehat, as was already said at least once, perhaps a bit too techno for ALL the Yehat... Space-faring they may be, but they're still of, for, and by the clans. ...but if you guys try this again and I hear any bagpipes (in a non-extra version of this tune), I might have to hurt someone. ;P

First of all, a wonderful remix. I personally like the initial part with the violins introduction. But you have neglected those significant violins after that..

I hope that another attempt can be made for the Yehat remix theme. The Yehat theme doesn't necessarily has to rely that much on the techno part, rather please pay more attention on the violins, cello and bass (in an orchestral sense) of the original.

The Yehat are a powerful race with an ability to take no damage from attacks (thanx to the shields) and not to forget.. awesome killing power.

As the remix has a more futuristic yet monotonous kinda feel, it heavily lacks the very heart and soul of the original theme.

The remix for the Yehat theme is going to be one grand task as to me.. it is the greatest theme in SC2.. so legendary that.. it still sounds good after almost 2 decades..

An interesting tune with an introspective quality to it (reflecting upon the Shofixti sacrifice). I agree with some of the other comments: it fits the pre-revolution Yehat better than the post-revolution (or the Yehat before they were betrayed by their queen for that matter). A less techno, more orchestral and militaristic tune would better fit the Yehat as a whole.

Arggggh! It takes far too long to get into the original theme from SC2, and it *does* lack the drive of the original tune... doooooohhhhh! Why?!?!?!

Good stuff. To those who say it's not "powerful" enough, I say it has to be a positive comment; it means the composer manages to convey this feeling of a bird of prey full of anger but drowned in the sadness of having lost it's offsprings, claws and beak. Some parts do feel somewhat vaporous, which I don't find particularly fitting though, but I still think it's very good. I'd been waiting long for this one as I feel it was one of the best tune in the game...

Took a while to get used too... I agree its more B5'isk, but it's subtle its music for the Yehat of the UrQuan. My opinion, label this as the Yehat loyal to the Queen, and the create a new song, the Yehat of the Revolution (this one full blown power!) - otherwise beautiful.

Earlier, before this song was put on the Precursors site, I commented in the main site feedback about how much I loved the song, but how the start and end of the song don't really "loop" very well (for use as in-game music), but the more I think about it, there are several songs (SC2 original or UQM remixed) that don't really loop very well, nor do they need to be. So, I think this song is quite faithful to the original... it's not quite as grandiose and orchestral, but I think that makes it more of an improvement... the Yehat are a very proud and warlike race in a very tragic and shameful situation, and I think this song perfectly captures that.

This remix suits the pre-revolution Yehat perfectly; they are a warrior race with a powerful sense of duty and honor, and you can feel that deep within the song...but it doesn't come through strongly like in the original. Neither do the Yehat come through strongly as a powerful warrior race when you first speak to them; the Yehat are drowned in sorrow for their Shofixti children who died valiantly, battling the opponent they are now forced by duty to serve.

This is definitely a good mix, and perhaps the post-revolution Yehat are better fit with the more powerful original mix, but for when you first meet the Yehat this mix would be perfect.

It's not a bad tune, in and of itself...but it doesn't suit the Yehat. To me, the Yehat's general "feel" is less techno, more orchestral. Not quite "John Williams with an electronic vibe", more akin to Christopher Franke's work on Babylon 5.

I think another remix is needed... this one has nothing of what we liked the original for...

It doesn't have the drive and power of the original; but the original had almost too much, making it hard to listen to for more than a few minutes. And this exceeds the original in many other respects -- a more complex beat, better instruments, more complex rhythms, etc. Captures similar emotions while being very different and more listenable. Great job!

It isn't as bad as it seemed at start, though it is somewhat weaker than I hoped it to be. Too subtle. Yehat are somewhat samuraish, not in historical sense but in modern archetypical one. There is not enough rage in this one.

Still not bad, though. Would be nice if the project will be reborn someday.

I dunno... It just doesn't have that "Fear the Terminator" sound. Its just my opinion though. To me it feels to soft for the Yehat. Not very royal and proud. Sorry but I gotta disagree with this one.

This is pretty slick and groovy.

It just doesn't seem to have the energy of the original, though. The original theme had DRIVE to it. A power, if you will. This isn't bad by any means, but it's too laid back and calm. I was expecting some fist-pumping militaristic bombast through a rock/techno lens. Plus maybe some bagpipes. . .

This is a great remix, fits the ashamed yet royal Yehat in their subtlety perfectly
