I'm feeling this. Oh, I'm feeling this big time. Very jazzy and rocking... I'm simply at a loss of what to say on this, other than that its really brilliant.

I didn't even know I had a craving for sax soloing... but now that its being tamed, I can't stop listening to this amazingness!

Great job, Brad. This is a pure winner. :D

I love it with power!

I'm playing this at my grad party at my cabin, when we're all going to be chilling on the docks.

Pretty sad to lose this one, but it does in fact rock the yard. Good stuff, Brad!

Pretty great stuff, this yard be rockin- nice work Brad (and the assist from Andy). Good sax playing, some nice fills, and a lot of variation. The panning was cool, as I'm a fan of dueling saxes, and it let you layer on all kinds of craziness without things getting smashed together. Great harmonies too.

I'm excited to hear more. Maybe we could collab and have *real* dueling saxes. I'm sure you are dying to do another track with someone else.;-)

I like this mix a lot - it's been on loop for a little while :smile: . The only thing I thought that might've been nicer is to bring those guitars in the background a little more forward, but otherwise it sounds great!

Some aggresive and upbeat sax on this one. I was always impressed with the skill on the sax playing on the this one. Reminds of the Cowboy Bebop OST a bit. Congrats on the first solo post dude! :)

Furious intro; the perfect way to start a song. The instrumentation here is wonderful. The drums, the EP, the sax, the guitars...it all comes together so incredibly well (though I do agree with what Bahamut said).

Amazing remix. If that's how you roll solo, then I hope you'll grace us with some more remixes of this kind.

I love the intro to this so much. The selection of instruments is perfect.

Keep it up.

I personally thought that the solo was just a tad too long, but the intro to the choruses were absolutely spot on. thumbs up.

It's fun hearing this song because I haven't played SDB in about a decade but the music is slightly familiar. I get a sense of nostalgia but I don't exactly know what is new and what is old. Anyway, I thought Brad wasn't giving himself enough credit here - even if the playing isn't perfect, there's a lot of great expression going on in this song; the live sax makes a world of difference. The mix pops out at you and that keeps it very compelling, and the individual parts sound good apart and better together. Great track, Brad!

The live sax on this is pretty crazy, but I think the most impressive part is how you used so many different sound effects from the organ, guitar, and what sound like synths to help bolster them up :-) That's what it takes to make a truly successful solo mix, and damn did you deliver! :-D

My only complaint is that it sounds a little disharmonious when you've got both saxes playing at the same time, but it's only for a few seconds and really a minor issue. Everything about this I just loved!

The live sax does not disappoint, as always. I like how upbeat this song is, it makes me smile every time it comes up on a playlist. All the different instruments come together in this mix so well, and play off each other in great harmony. Loving the drums especially, they just give the song that much more attitude and style. Hoping that you'll put out more anything soon, solo or otherwise, this is good stuff.

I. Love. It. I remember playing this so much as a kid. My childhood memories of this game will forever be infused from now on with this pumped-up jam. The amount of reverb is perfect -- PERFECT! -- and the organ and bass interact perfectly with the melody.

5/5 stars on my completely arbitrary rating system. I think I'm going to go play SDB with my roommate now ... :)!!

So awesome... There's funky guitars, pounding drums, hot sax and playful organ. This mix just has no reasons to be dull. I like every change-up here. It's wonderful!
