Let's all copy deadmau5
Ok, so to begin with "Silence" doesn't need another set of remixes, the last set weren't all that great. The track, despite being a classic has been totally played out and I'd thank nettwerk if they'd kindly stop commissioning crappy remixes of it. This remix is a blatent copy of Deadmau5's style which, incidentally is a poor choice of styles to copy if there ever was one. How difficult is it to construct a track of 8th notes and add some vocals over the top? Not very. For the sake of good music, do not buy this release.
Not as good as Tiesto's version, but no-one's forcing you to buy it
Despite having a fantastic back catalogue, Delerium are only really known in the UK for just the one song. It's not really a surprise then that the record company keep commissioning remixes of it – and those of us who are not naïve will realise and accept this. I can’t understand why people feel the need to complain about the existence of a remix that no-one is forcing them to buy. Let’s face it: the Tiesto version will always be the best, but if you’re in a club and this new remix comes on, are you really going to complain because it’s not the same version that you’ve heard a hundred times? Being objective, I don’t think the remix brings anything new to the song, but if it brings new listeners to Delerium’s music then I’m happy for them.
Sarah McLaughlan is an amazing singer/song writer, and when this track first came out it sounded very much out there, brilliantly mixed by Delerium with it's futuristic tones, with Sarah's vocals complimenting it like no other artist could. Now adays the song isn't played very much, but has certainly had it's day. These mixes aren't trying to make the song have a come-back unlike Toca's Miracle re-release, but personally I don't think these are worth the money! Sorry
