I'm not familiar with the source (I've only ever played Mega Man 2 :oops:), but I'm really digging this track so far.

Wow! What an awesome, original take on the Cutman theme! Nice job, very nice! It's like slow trip-hop mixed with bits of Old West. Kudos!

Reminds me of a Wild West shoot out, e.g. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly etc., except garnished with a few modern rock flourishes.

This might have something to do with the fact that I'm currently reading the Dark Tower series though ... :<

Still I like the dire seriousness and the wasteland-esque desolation underpinning this mix. Its unique atmosphere and style makes this highly recommended.

Edit:

It's like slow trip-hop mixed with bits of Old West.

Ha. Beat me to it. lol

Definitely digging the old west style. More remixes need to be done in this style.

Even though it feels like it's at an incredibly slow tempo, it really doesn't feel too long or boring. I love the acoustic guitar lead and the reverby screaming electric guitar in the background. They play well together.

This is very creative. The western vibe i think is great and the pace i think is perfect. Love it:razz:

I'm more of an electronica producer but here's my 2 cents nonetheless:

Not bad. I like the lone ranger, dustball in the wind vibe here. That said, I just feel like it could have been taken up a notch tempo-wise and perhaps gone a bit more country western; like John Wayne era. (not country music, I mean like the music in classic western films)

But, you did think to take it this direction. SO cowboy hats off for that. :nicework:

Too new for me to have digested it yet, but I'm feeling the old west vibe. This brings up a lot of weird images of my least favorite parts of movies, the sad parts where the girl has gone off with another guy, or you just lost your job, your home, and your dog; or when you return home to find the house empty and nobody there; or when you're hitchhiking in the rain in the middle of nowhere and nobody stops... or even comes by. Well done capturing an emotion I try to avoid. I am so not listening to this ever again. :P

Having been listening to the Gun.Smoke remix lately, I can immediately hear the spaghetti western feel in this, and it works really well. I like how this has been slowed down to a sort of somber remembrance track. I think the guitars are especially nice.

I'm not entirely digging the harmonica sound used for the lead, but it's not so bad that I can't enjoy the track. Great work.

Very melancholic and forlorn. Good progression and a solid balance. Nice super sustained leads (ebow?), and yeah, this track is really depressing.

Nice work evoking a mood, I approve. :-)

"I wasn't always just Cut-man you know! I used to tend the gardens at the hospital, and grew beautiful flowers to inspire patients back to health.

They used to come back after they got better to say thanks, and I'd get free oil. The people loved me, and I loved them. But then Dr Wily forced me to do bad, otherwise....*sniff*...otherwise he said he'd kill all my patients.

Please Megaman, let me live, I'll do good from now on, I'll stand u..."

Megaman says.

"Sry guy, need cut to beet elecman lol. kthxbainao!"

Good remix. It made think the above.

Very slow and deliberate, I like it.

The mix of spaghetti western (I never quite got that term, strangely) mixed with the hip-hop beats really makes this mix shine out.

I listened to the remix and loved it. It was very western and melodic. Hope they will comeout with more remix like this :nicework:

Not the style I'm used to ilp0 going for, but I guess I can dig it nonetheless :-) The subtler uses of the harmonica and marimba provide some pretty nice touches along with the more straightforward lead instruments.

Overall the arrangement/sound doesn't seem as sophisticated or expansive as I've grown accustomed to, but it feels like an appropriate, restrained take on the Cutman theme.

Great album :-D

This is a pretty nice and trippy mix. I get the vibes of a solemn western from this song, not something I get to hear every day.

I love everything about this!

Probably the most sad-sounding song on OCR, so good job on achieving that depressing mood.

Seems I'm the only one who doesn't get the spaghetti-western vibe from it; the song certainly reminds me of old western movies, but not really the Italian stuff.

Very sad sounding, almost like a forlorn tribute more than a lullaby. I barely caught the western sound of some of it, but I hear it. Some of the production seems just a little bit sharp, but that's doesn't really bug me. And other than that, this is a great ReMix. Nice harmony with the harmonica.

In addition to what was said above, which I entirely agree with, this also reminds me of The Eternal Doctrine remix of the Kohr-Ah theme from Star Control 2 (not an OC remix).

I just can't see using this as a lullaby.
