  1. Quick thoughts: Intoxica is soooooo good. Radiowar - as much as I loved your past music, I never knew you had a track like this in you. It's amazing. So is Treehouse Campfire. Love this one so much. Taken together, discs 3 and 4 (the GBA tracks) are like a huge party where all the best musicians show up and do their thing. It's like a huge triumphant victory lap. Everyone is in their top form on these tracks and there's hardly a misstep. The SNES tracks didn't carry the same momentum and sustained excellence as the GBA collection. Theophany, you're brilliant. Your musical fingerprints and DNA are found all over the entire album. zyko, I'm constantly fascinated by how you continue to reinvent yourself. All three of your tracks exhibit something new that I've never heard from you before. Awesome work.
  2. So so so good. Shades of Uyama Hiroto.
  3. OCR02340 - Final Fantasy VII 'BadAzz'

    this song is the straight up biznesss
  4. Great air of nostalgia to this, thanks for making it! I love Mother 3's soundtrack.
  5. Yeah, this is pretty ridiculous guys. I approve. LuIzA's guitars seal the deal for me.
  6. I'm a huge fanboy over this song, nearly splooged myself when I first heard it. Just an amazing feel to it, I think it's the most refined and sophisticated mix I've heard from Sixto.
  7. Happy 25th Birthday to Metroid!

    Oh man, I'm so stoked.
  8. I too would like this confirmed, will probably drop by if it's still going down
  9. This is so so good. DiGi, I love how effortless and natural your flow sounds. Tryezz, what an impeccable production. Looking forward to more from you guys in the future.
  10. OCRA-0026 - NiGHTS: Lucid Dreaming

    Dudes and dudettes, this is awesome work. It's whimsical, it's fun, it's like a comforting warm dream I don't want to wake up from. Sixto's track in particular slays me.
  11. Dances Done to VGM

    That's totally rad. Great song selection
  12. Donkey Kong Country 3: Double the Trouble! - History

    I think everyone is really looking forward to your track mv, it's been WAY too long.
  13. Team Gato 2.0

    OH MY GAWDD this just made my day and I haven't even finished listening to it
  14. Kirby: Dudes, I love this matchup. Both songs sound drugged out as hell, like if Shnabubula decided one day to Play Kirby While Taking Mushrooms. And to read that Ben Briggs wrote the ending to the Kirby song while hella drunk? good shit. Wonder if that title is a play off of AnSo's Life and Death of the Mario Bros, which was originally intended for this album. But anyway, this is some next level chiptune madness with all kinds of crazy stutter effects. Bomb diggity. Mazedude's track is a bit of a miss for me once that trumpet comes in. Certainly I applaud you for your artistic bravery, but the Dedede theme is such a satisfying tune and I can never get used to the bizarre nature of the second half. The chorus of the source, which gets stuck in my head at random times, only comes in once in this song in chiptune mode, leaving me very unsatisfied. I think it could have worked beautifully if you closed the song with one more refrain of that chorus played by piano (Bladiator, where art thou). Regardless, still a very cool battle, who knew that Kirby would be the trippy druggie battle (would have been even more perfect if Dedede was in ACID jazz). Insert Rupee ftw. Castlevania: Haha love the title to Mustin's song, so fitting for a traitor . Why can't I stop picturing Mustin as Hulk Hogan everytime this song comes on? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zwr1dTrLbY0 "MUSTIN is here! MUSTIN IS IN THE BUILDING! Wait, who's side is he on?" *Mustin promptly dropkicks a fallen Mazedude* "OH MY GOD. Mustin has betrayed the Bad Dudes!" But I have to say, this is an awesome twist, and a matchup with great old school flavor. While we're all disappointed we didn't get McVaffe vs Mustin or Snappelman vs Ailsean, Mustin vs Ailsean ain't bad. I go with Ailsean on this track though for a brooding arrangement topped off with unexpected use of Clockwork. It's not that Mustin's track is too relaxed, it's just a bit too predictable and less dynamic than I'd like it to be. My final tally: 6-4 in favor of the Villains, but overall I thought the Heroes side was more consistently great while the Villains had the bigger standout tracks. Hold out on volume 2 for a couple years guys, I'm still trying to catch my breath from this collection.
  15. Zelda: THE most hyped match of the whole thing in my mind. Rap battle was a genius idea and I had really high hopes for this one. The end result is fun and an awesome effort but perhaps made me realize my expectations were a bit too lofty. I think both these guys have done better rap songs in every facet, Niggaz 4 Life and Spittin Narcissism both exhibit better production, lyricism, and flow in my humble opinion... zyko's 'Bladewalker' is an interesting companion piece to 'Rime of the Wanderin Seafarer' as Zelda storytelling songs, but I don't think the execution is as strong. The rap delivery in both songs felt a little bit off-beat and awkward at times. As far as guest verses go, zyko's verse on 'He Ain't a G' hit much harder than Jose's verse on 'Bladewalker.' Part of the reason for that though is because Jose provided an easier hip hop beat to rap on, I have no qualms about the Zelda theme arrangement and therefore proclaim Jose my winner here. "nigga I'm a cavalry Hyrulian, chop you down as I cut through your whole fuckin battalion!" Street Fighter: watermelon flava to the ice cream truck to garlic to...coconut milk? hell yeah. Lots of tasty treats from posu and Mr. Morse over the years, and this Sagat mix proves there's still boundaries untouched in the theme that will never die. zircon is no slouch either and I favor his song probably 4 out of 10 times...but my heart still says to go with the irresistible mix from posu and Morse, an undeniably infectious and groovy mix that feels so organic and alive.
