This is rockin'! The segment starting at the 2:10 mark is EPIC! Seriously, my theory is now fact! 2008 will be a magnificent year for remixes!

Awesome mix. Production is scary good. The Gods of All Things That Rock are grinning maniacally down upon you, musicalman.

Also, Dave's write ups are perfectly Solid as usual.

This is my most listened to remix since it won DoD in January. Big fan of it, it's super clean and really spices up the sneaking theme to MG. Great stuff, look forward to hearing more.

Ok, that's a bit freaky, I was listening a few hours ago to the astonishing "Metal Gear Solid Legend of the Snake OC ReMix" by Ruben Kee (May he Rest In Peace :( ), and I was thinking that Its been a while since there's been a Metal Gear or MGS remix....and there it is!
Fantastic job musicalman!! The power is there and the feeling as well!! It's just amazing!
Great ocremix ^^
Good Continuation Dude!

The beginning is hilarious. Great idea.

All in all a very solid rock track with nice breakdowns, e.g. around the 1:30 mark. Very good use of voice clips, too.

The end was handled quite well, too.

Clean mix, impressive arrangement. Although, for some reason, i get a distinct Michiru Yamane feel from the guitar work. Maintains a bit of semblance to the classic structure of a military march, but deviates in the best possible way.

Definitely looking forward to more submissions like this one.

When I first heard this one at DoD, I thought "Virt? Viiiiiiirt!!! Why did you redo your song from a few years back?"

After a few listens, though, it was pretty clear it was a different guy altogether doing a somewhat similar song on the surface, but underneath, there are a lot of unique differences.
The guitar playing on this is beautiful, great emotion and some good chops to boot, a few sections that seemed a little sloppy, but it's solid (lolz) where it counts. The chorus sections are excellent, and really help make the song great.

Arrangement and flow are excellent, with the vocal samples and sound efffects used to add punch to transitions in a tasteful and cool way. It kicks up the song a lot, and the varied soundscapes and colors are great.

This one is great, I wish there was some more from Musicalman all up in this.

Excellent ReMix. Just... excellent. Even though I'm not a big Metal Gear fan, I've had the mix stuck in my head all day and it's been great.

Nice work, musicalman! Any more in the works?

The intro and the outro couldn't be more different, which I don't really care about, but I find the intro interesting seeings as it seems to suggest one direction for the mix straight out, and then it's thrust into quite another. In terms of melody, I strongly, STRONGLY agree with the direction taken.
The ending turns this mix into what was above average into top-tier stuff. Great guitar, great arrangement, great everything. Love it.
