Take that!

So, I finally beat the problem I have of never finishing anything.  No, really, I can think of maybe two projects I've started which have actually reached completion in the past several years.  In two days, however, I managed to crank out this 5:53 remix of a song I've never heard before.

Conjure One - Face the Music (Revvy's Near Future Mix)

BAM!

The only completely original part is the percussion, which I made by slicing up the drum loops of the original song.  The strings, piano, vocals, bassline, guitar, etc. are all samples of the original, except in completely new arrangements.  I listened to Face the Music after I finished the song, and they sound incredibly different.  I like my version more, personally ;)

This all came out of a remix competition on acidplanet.com, which is for users of ACID or ACID Express only.  Still, they provide a 198mb sample pack with an ACID project file, so I just ditched the project and opened the rest in FL Studio.  The plus side of this is that I now have a much better grasp of the program, and I even tried my hand at some basic mastering.

Anyways, I'd love to hear about anything that works/doesn't work in the track, and any general feelings about it.  Recommended listening position: head back, eyes closed.  I'm not quite sure what style this is, but it's only 125 BPM and it's pretty laid back for some parts.
