Fuuuunky. One more addition to the class of music I have dubbed 'urban' because I don't know if it has a classification other than 'techno groove' or 'funk techno' or 'groove funk' or something like that. It's good, and I like it. I can see myself cruising through town to this... if the bassline were any more prominent, I could even see myself losing some speakers to it. Great work.

I thought it seemed cool too, with the instruments given the urban effect and making this a powerful remake of the Special Stage theme. But I could have enjoyed it a lot more if the music suddenly didn't stop pausing every two seconds o.O;

Speaking of which, did anyone else face the same problems?

Sounds like you were trying to stream it without a good connection, but anyway...
This is awesome. The groove factor is through the roof. And at times the great mastering reminded me of some of Radiohead's earlier stuff, which is a great example of excellent EQing and such. And as a drummer I have to say it's good to hear electronic music that actually grooves as well as this. A lot of people seem to just toss drums in there as an afterthought, but this actually sounds fantastic in the drum department. The effects used are used very tastefully, and the whole mix just makes you wanna get up and dance.
I could see this being used at the end of an auto insurance company commecial. Don't ask.

Very Nice Work. :nicework:

The bubble synths at the beginning and that play throughout irritate me.
I dont know what it is about them exactly...but they make me go >_~ and I dont like them.

The guitar is pretty good...though the timing is a little weird at first it gets better as you listen to it again.

The whole track is pretty repetetive though...I dont like that about it...it could quite easily have been cut right down and made much better.

Prety good, but could be much better.

I'm liking the intro.

My only qualm is the pad that gets started right before the guitar. Makes me wanna ask why that was even put there... seemed a little jarring to put in there.

However... the acid line is interesting and pretty cool. And the mid-section between acid line and guitar with the robo-disto was waay cool.

Light post-funk this is... but it doesn't set in a scenario, but it is nonetheless groovy and I could only see this in a shot-backing lounge.... nothing else. Unless that was what Analoq was going for, then I say "Yay!"

Hell yeah, I'm diggin this mix! It's got that whole Spyro The Dragon vibe, it's sounds like that level where you have to flame the wizards to make the platforms lower. This mix on a technical level deserves the phrase "OMFG" to describe it. This is what I'd expect on a CD. Also for all of you people who hate the synths? Shut up.

More specifically, a GEICO commercial, at 00:38 it would kick in and say GEICO, and whatever else the Geico guy says, and then it plays and fades off.

And by "Boss Music", you meant "Special Stage Music", right? ;)

When the drums first come in, that is SOOO Ocean's 11. :lol:

At any rate, I love what you did with the tune. I always despised the bonus level music with a passion. However, this is very listenable. This is something that's just good to kick back and listen to.

analoq,

On the plus side, you do have a very distinctive sound. It’s quite apparent that you're not without musical talent.

IMHO though, Thin Glow is far and away your best work to date. This one just doesn’t do it for me.

Your guitar does sound very nice, if not a little loud in places, but I just can’t get into it as much as said remix. I guess you set yourself some pretty high standards, initially.

Give me some more beautiful synth action.


Nice review, endblink.

The happiness of the melody really clashes with the bassline. This isn't a song I would have tried to 'urbanize' (thanks for the lingo, Darkmoogle). The drums are also unsatisfactory. They're pretty repetitive, and the reveerb applied to them sounds pretty bad. Yes, the guitar and synthwork is awesome, but the execution is rather odd...

EDIT: Sorry if this review sounds hypocritical. I'm just trying to justify not liking this mix, because I am positive that I don't like it.

Ahhh, Analoq comes through again with another badass Sonic remix. I must say, Analoq, I'm becoming more and more of a fan of yours with each new mix.

Okay.

I've listened and listened and listened. I think the arrangement is great. I think the execution is top-knotch. Comma. BUT.

It's like you started out with a bad idea and expanded upon it with good stuff. The source melody does not work well with this style. At all. I can't enjoy this because it sounds like you had to try really hard to make it work or something. It's like me making a punk arrangement of the zelda overworld song. It could be done, it just doesn't fit.

Oh well. Different strokes for different folks.

Yay, someone agrees with me! Starblaze nailed it!
