In my opion, the Domi-Nation remix is the best one. Strong bassline, and an exotic voice sample for that extra uplifting feeling. The Michael Woods remix is a quality chill-out track, just like his other chill-out remixes of for example Energy 52's Café Del Mar. As stated above, none of the remixes resemble the original version, which is pretty weird when you first hear it after you got used to the melody Cygnus X introduced.

The 1998 Cygnus X Remix is the best version of this IMO. The Ferry Corsten Remix done in 1999 was a complete rip off of Cygnus X's, and being released at a time when Ferry Corsten was enjoying a huge amount of success is probably the only reason this was noticed over the Cygnus X Mix. If you listen to the original mix by Art Of Trance, very little, if nothing of it remains on any of the remixes. All of the remixes are basically remakes of the Cygnus X Mix and IMO he should get more credit than he does, as he was the one who created such an awe inspiring track. Art Of Trance's original is lovely also, but is best looked at as a completely different track. The 2002 mixes of it were even more unnessecary, as the Push Remix doesn't impress me at all and the Kumara remix is plain awful.

How many times can you release the same song over and over again? Apparently as many times as us stupid collectors are prepared to shell out for them. However, if you had resisted so far, perhaps this time you'll consider one of the legendary Platipus back-catalogue tracks for your collection. You'll get a whole slew of competent remixes at a decent price, although I find that the classic versions by Ferry and Transa are the ones that still remain the most interesting ones. I can think of no good reason to pick this up for the benefit of the new remixers.
