  1. OCR03714 - Jeanne d'Arc "Sword of God"

    Excellent stuff here!! I admit that I am one of the heathens that isn't familiar with the source (though I'm liking the description), but I don't think you need to know the source at all to be caught up in all the goodness of this remix. I really enjoy the transitions here (such as 1:25-1:35) and the solo sections are arresting (particularly 3:10+ is bananas!). But my favorite thing of this remix is the way the heavier guitar mixes with the quieter throughline. It gives a real feel of depth and touch and allows this piece to shine beyond just having some nice sections. Special props for the 5:05+ quieting finish - the perfect way to go out, in my opinion! A surprise gem here!
  2. This isn't my style, but I can at least appreciate the care the remixer put into the overall sound - it's executed well from start to finish. Nice work.
  3. Wow, this is just wonderful. This takes what is already a nice, interesting piece and makes it into a practical suite. The handling of 1:05-2:32 has such power, and then 2:33 on changes it into such an amazing, delicate touch! In short, this really explores the piece and delivers a top-notch handling of a less common piece. I'm really, really impressed by the quality of the remix here - well done!!
  4. Intriguing! This mix seems pretty simple and beautiful until you get to about 2 minutes, where there's some really nice concepts and beautiful floating sections, the kind that really bring out the best in the interweaving feel. Zelda purity with a touch of something ethereal - well done!
  5. I am 100% behind this effort! Holy CRUDMUFFINS, this remixer went out there on a limb and CRUSHED it. Honestly, I find the crazy juxtaposition of the chiptunes and screamed vocals to be a really wild experience - and doubly so with the choice of source! This song really adjusts as it goes along too. I hope people give something so outside the norm a fair shot, because damn, this is an impressive concoction in both the idea and the delivery! Thanks to the remixer for such an effort! P.S. Really appreciated the lyrics clarification - I'm not so well versed on that type of metal that I can pick that all out.
  6. OCR03694 - Undertale "The Spectral Mire"

    My god it's like a symphonic metal remix!!! Wow!! The scope is near-grandiose and the delivery is perfect, with serious props going to the arrangement - it's unique, deeply moving, and just takes you for a dark journey. Wow. This stands out for me as a truly next-level piece.
  7. Wow, I don't know the original source well but I am DIGGING this arrangement - the adjustments and tone are wonderfully interwoven and the overarching mood seems like something out of Stranger Things, which I understand as intentional and this just crushes it. Wonderful sections at 1:45, an intriguing transition at 3:03 and liberal use of... everything... means there's something for everyone! Special props for the walkback in the final minute - I thought it put a great cap on it. If you want a unique sound and something better than the normal fare, you've got an instant download here!
  8. OCR03691 - Sonic the Hedgehog 3 "Aquapump"

    Guitar lovers, you've found your vibe. This is straight Sonic rock, and well done at both the interpretation as well as the overall sound - it's like something right out of a Sonic set of extra levels for those players hardcore enough to earn a particularly difficult and rocking version of the Hydrocity zone. Well done!
  9. OCR03688 - Final Fantasy VI "Terra's Love"

    "Delicate" is the perfect way to describe this track: 2:45-3:05 is just a wonderful tiptoe through the theme, and the care and love this theme is handled with does justice to someone who knows her Terra backstory. Thoughtful, intricate, stellar job here. Man, loving these submissions.
  10. Calling this trance seems almost an insult to the song, if only because this is so much more textured and interesting than some of the standard 'trance' remixes of songs. Really, I'm stunned a description could this be different, it's madness. What ISN'T madness is the easy, sinuous quality of this song. I really like how different this is from most JENOVA remixes I hear - it's smoother and more thoughtful. Impressive!!
  11. I'm so happy there's a place in the world for this kind of semi-insane/semi-brilliant creation. I'm in awe and amazement. Well done!!
  12. OCR03682 - Final Fantasy IV "The Universe"

    Honestly, my only fear is that only those familiar with the source tune will truly appreciate what you've done here. That said, this is amazing for anyone who knows it and loves the game, as I do - 1:45-1:55 alone made me sit up and take notice, as I suddenly realized this was going to get even more ambitious than 'just' an ethereal take on an already ethereal theme, and man does this mix go places I never dreamed. The call-in/call-out of 4:35+ and interweaving of different instruments and levels is really thoughtful and at times approaches breathtaking. If there ever was a song to sit back and listen to in the dark of night while looking out the window at the stars, this is it. Lastly, I'm aware this is a place for music, but I must mention the writeup by the remixer. Just crushed it.
  13. Man, I am so happy this didn't get lost in the aether... what a wonderful and masterful feel this song delivers, particularly 2:20 on, with a special note for 2:45-3:00, an understated section where the remixer just seems so in control of what they want to do. Absolutely pumped to hear this and a tremendous addition! Well done to anyone who brought this to the light!!
  14. I listen to this piece and I feel like it's so impressively groovy that I'm not even worthy to groove to it. I don't even know if that made sense. But this piece just seems to be so polished. Really impressive playing here too, I must add!
  15. I don't know a damn bit whether this is samba or Brazilian or big band or what the hell this is, I only know two things: that this remixer put a ton of work into this project and actually pulled it off with something like 15 live musicians, and this piece is just darned FUN! Congratulations and well done!!
