Diary of Dreams - King of Nowhere
Darkwave, Rock In Diary of Dream's latest and greatest album '(if)', "King of Nowhere" was one of my favourite tracks, does it work in this single release?

Well, it kind of does. The single start up with the great album version of the track and then continue with three more remixes of the same track before a remix of "Kingdom of Greed", also first released on the same album. Mostly remixes are a bit different than the original and therefore you don't get the feeling that you are listening to the same song over and over again, even though the difference between the "Album Version" and the "Club Version" is very slim, though the last mentioned one is a bit more scaled down sound-wise. Personally I would rather use the "Desert Mix" on the dance floor, since it feels a bit more upbeat. The last remix is called "Phonecall From Nowhere" and it's a bit more dreamy with it's ticking clocks and pianos, somehow it reminds me of something from Robert Miles classic album 'Dreamland' from 1996.

The remix of "Kingdom of Greed" is very alike the album version and it's not very much to say about it, it is a great track no matter what. Still, I feel a little bit disappointed that there is no B-side, I would love to hear some more work from Adrian Hates with friends.
