The layout, and mixes, appearing on this CD make it seem like it's the 14th Strike. You
might ask "14"? Well, there's 1-12, then the 12 « (theoretically 13), and then there's
this CD, but the only identifying mark on the CD is a 14. The mixing style stays in the
same feel as the 8-12 Strikes. If you liked those mixes, you might like these.
Great CD! A few of these tracks might be available elsewhere, but most of them
(specifically the well-done Counterfeit EP remixes) cannot be found anywhere else that I
know of! Bravo on these mixes!
Exceptions to the excelence:
Trck 9: *okay* mix. The first few notes are looped for a full 2 minutes, making you fall
asleep before you even hear the rest, which is pretty much the regular song.
Track 12: Cut & pasted together from the Voxless mix... it's the remixer's crappy demo,
not DM's, and not even worth listening to.
Final Verdict: I really like these!
