What do I think? I think AeroZ is the man!

Nice work man, you are definitely in my mind one of ocr's greatest musical minds.

This is BADASS! I think this is my favorite take on this song to date. I love the stereo separation in your instruments and the use of the clown car approach sfx.

What's more, you used the original theme without needlessly adding notes all over the place and then added onto it afterward - taking the melody into a great progression the original song didn't feature. THAT'S my favorite kind of mix. The beat is also pretty awesome, and liberal distortion is very close to my heart.

Hm. May just be the synth (and maybe even the beats), but this reminds me a bit of the first track on Ratatat's self-titled album. Very interesting remix and well made.

I rarely post reviews because I just don't have much to say about remixes; I usually enjoy them, but can't really articulate why. I downloaded this mix and left OCR to check my email. After a minute or so, I was humming along with the song! I decided that I had to return to OCR and give you my thanks and my compliments on an excellent ReMix. Very, very well done.

This theme is one of my absolute favorites and I love to hear remixes of it. This, by far, is the most unique remix of this song I have heard to date. I really enjoy it. Excellent job.

Excellent melding of two themes. I'd agree with DJP that it's a very crunchy mix, and seasonally appropriate, too. This one has earned a direct adding to my Halloween playlist!

Wow, this mix really is great, really ... but as soon as the melody kicked in, I had to turn it off. And I was absolutely loving it before that.

The fourth note of the melody in this mix correlates to that of the main theme (in a major key), not of the castle theme (in a minor key). Because of the different chord progression, the original fourth note had to be changed to what it is in this mix. Unfortunately, every time I hear it, it sounds like the melody is leaving the minor key and jumping into major, even though, technically, that note does fit in with the chord it is played over.

So, despite the overall greatness of this mix, I really can't listen to it at all, because no matter what, that fourth note is going to sound wrong to me. Crap.

Really great ReMix, it's just awesome ! "Castle BGM" is my favorite tune from SMW and Luigi's Mansion's soundtrack is just cool ! Great job ! :nicework:

Love this, so much going on! Definitely my kind of mix. I like the addition of sections that play the beat straighter - a nice steadiness to contrast the rest of the chaos.

Crazy Awesome.

Hard hitting and amazing panning, with a great sound, and a ton of variation. I love how you chopped up the organ run, and the groove is amazing. I wish there was a larger climax before the ending, but meh, it's still an amazing track.

Completely killer work; I am going to name my firstborn after you.

Very, VERY fun fusion of oldschool and newschool sounds in a classical game piece that doesn't get enough remix attention. A definite keeper. Looking forward to more mixes by AeroZ.

"Crunchy" is the right word for this song. So much raw, untamed badassery. If OCR were a schoolyard, this remix would be taking the other remixes' lunch money away.

And I agree with Mazedude; this theme (as well as the rest of the SMW music) doesn't get enough attention (anymore).

This is an incredible ReMix. I find it very engaging, not only because I recognize the source tunes but because it moves with such a confident swagger amid a brilliantly executed arrangement. Excellent use of Big Boo sfx and multiple themes. Great work, AeroZ!
