Correction for the song "The Early Crow Gets the Snail (Wind Crowrang vs. Crystal Snail)" on the The Grand Maverick Remix Battle 2010 portion:
Composers are Noriyuki Iwadare & Yuki Iwai.
Noriyuki Iwadare specifically composed X7's Wind Crowrang stage theme (listed as "Higher The Air~Air Force Stage" on the OST). http://vgmdb.net/album/2179 and http://www.squareenixmusic.com/composers/iwadare/biography.shtml for details.

I've gotten into contact with Teruo Konishi via Twitter (it's the first thing that comes up in a Google search for him btw) a week ago and he replied that he did the two Sigma battle themes for X7, one of which (Our Blood Boils) is the game's sole representative.
With that you can completely remove Makoto Asai and Shuichi Mizohata.
Additionally, given that Hasegawa was in charge of Maverick Hunter X and did all the cinematic music (which naturally includes allusions to Vile's Theme for his story), you can also get rid of Shinya Okada and Seiko Kobuchi.

If someone else wants to direct such an album, I'd give my full blessings - such posts make it tempting to start such a project, but I think the allure of doing other game soundtracks grips me more.

That'd be nice, I already made a Flame Mammoth w.i.p

Maverick Rising also missed most of the boss themes, so there is material for a sequel!

Here's a little random tidbit - the name of the album Maverick Rising came out of me recalling the Judas Priest song Judas Rising, and just the thought of a maverick assault rampaging through made Maverick Rising such a natural name to me.


As a testament to how great Maverick Rising was (everything I'd hoped for, but I can't judge it in comparison to the public hype), I came up with another pipe dream... a Maverick Rising volume 2 that includes, but is far from limited to, ReMixes of Launch Octopus, Flame Mammoth, Wire Sponge, Toxic Seahorse, Volt Catfish, Web Spider, Storm Owl, Split Mushroom, Jet Stingray, and Magma Dragoon. The project would require all of those 10 Mavericks to be ReMixed in either 1 or 2 tracks, with free selection amongst the other tracks, with not yet ReMixed pieces encouraged, and a total of 3 discs (30 to 45 tracks) if a 4th disc would make things too difficult.

Just downloaded, and wow this is an incredible collection of arrangements. Near perfection... like 99.9999%. I can't say 100 because Toxic Seahorse's theme from X3 wasn't included!

I almost couldn't believe when I looked through the playlist at the project's website. I think that all the remixes I've been waiting for showed up in this album. I'm freaking out with each tune, man. The songs are really epic, and I'm really grateful to you guys, who worked to create this. As a Mega Man X fan, I'm really happy I can listen to such quality music based on a part of my culture. Thank you guys from OC Remix, and thanks to Capcom as well, despite they abbandoned the franchise and left the fans with nothing but reasons to lose the hope on seeing/controlling Mega Man in new and nice titles.

This is easily my favorite OCR album (though I do have significant bias, Mega Man X is my all-time favorite series). So many good songs and a few tracks that are unexpectedly awesome despite my dislike of some source tracks.

An insane soundtrack, with awesome sounds. Well done! But there is enough here to keep even old fans busy with playlists. =D Nice

"@KinuyoYamashita Hey, I directed a Mega Man X series tribute album which includes X3 music that I think you'd enjoy! http://maverick.ocremix.org/"

"@BahamutWC I really enjoyed it."
Right there is the composer to Megaman X3 as well as a few other games approving of this album, you can't do much better then that.

Hmmm, It didn't feel as good to me as most of the other albums on this site to me. It felt almost empty on some of it for me, even. I don't know why. There are some great tracks on it, though. I look forward to the next album.

Congratulations guys on a staggeringly awesome album.
This album took me 2 days to listen to due to so many songs.
First of all i gotta agree with kyle below about Cyril the wolf in crushing gravity, dude i gotta say when i heard that scream, it blew me out of my chair, i was stunned, well done sir.
There's many great songs from this album but the greatest thing about this album is that it includes remixers who don't seem to have any posted remixes on OCR, such as BONKERS, ergosonic and M-H who i know from DoD, as well as those who seem to be newcomers such as washudoll, krow, brandon snell and devastus.
As for the use of soundclips, i personally feel they add to the songs
This albums greatest achievement however is bringing the plaid muffins back together, guys you don't realize how additive that song is, i end up randomly singing it at work.
All in all a great album all round, so great that it makes me want to go through the entire series, to experience it myself, and to me that is a mark of a truly inspiring remix album.
