    Alexei's Memorial is very :sheesh:. The whole program, he's mimicking G&P and doing a very poor job of it. Bleh, thanks for the link though (I don't know why I'm downloading it again, but oh well. :D)

    Sorry to hear that you didn't like the program. I love it and I saw G&P's program too. I don't see anything of their program in it. Just me though

    This version has to be the worst he skated this program, he really didn't skate well and he said so in the press conference after the farewell. Doesn't matter anyway, it wasn't the most important thing of the day and being able to skate at all was already good enough

    I love the music and I like this program, but it's unfortunate that it came right after Overcome because although different, the mood is somewhat similar. It wasn't such a good option to skate one after the other IMO. But I think the program is very good, it's difficult and it works very well with show lights. And of course it's dramatic and he always does a good job with dramatic programs.

    And I was very glad that he got rid of some of the G/P moves as the season went by because heck, I know G/P's Memorial was good but Evgeny Platov and Tarasova could have been a little more original when they choreographed it LOL He deserves his own original choreography

    Thank you! I thought I was the only one who thought Yags was imitating G/P the whole time. I really didn't like the program because he was mostly doing twizzles and doing his usual style of selling the program.

    I guess one of the reasons I love this program is because I saw him perform it at Skate Canada and it was very emotional. This skate was turning point in his career. In an interview, he said that he didn't know how emotional it was going to be for him to skate until he started skating. He was very emotional prior to skating.

    I also saw him perform this in SOI. I turned to one of the people I was with and said I just love this program and HE said to me he skates with so much passion. I thought that was pretty neat for a guy to say that.

    As I said before, I just love this program but then I'm not comparing it to anyone or another of his programs.

    I saw it at Skate Canada as well, and it was so moving. The raw emotion was overwhelming. I have to say that I didn't feel the same way seeing it on SOI and CSOI. I think that having been there for the performance at Skate Canada, any other performance of this number pales in comparison.

    Oceanguy, I am not positive this is it but it is the same music that Evgeny Platov & Pasha Grishunk skated to and their music was Michael Nyman's haunting Memorial Requiem. I hope that helps.
