Kicking.

The arrangement is just delicious. I´m really lovin´ the strings here. And the orchestral stuff is EXCELLENT in general. This is a great great mix.

This is a very common theme and I´ve heard a million versions of it, but the orchestral deliciousness makes this truly a unique piece. And I just keep praising the orchestrals, while the electronix stuff is CRISPY as hell also. Excellent. And excellent variation with the main melody on the orchestral instruments.. GGREAT! Its like the melody is suited to work better with orchestral instruments. And hell IT WORKS better.

My only grudge really are the main leadsynths.. (and its just a small, very very small grudge) Nothing wrong with them but they´re maybe just too... BASIC. Although there is some great variation in them, and they sound very good. For some reason still they don´t do the trick for me. But it doesn´t matter cause the emphasis is not on them anyway..

All I can say really is.. VERY VERY VERY GOOD STUFF!

4/5

Beautiful, just awesome. I haven't heard such good Megaman since the days of AE. When the drum came in at 1:45 I was like "HELL YEAH!"

OK first things first... I AM SO FLOORED!

My first reaction seeing a new mix today was "Sweet, Mega Man! Oh, another flash man mix... *sigh*". But open this tune up in yo playerz, ladies and gents, this track lights it up.

Anyone reminded of the opera from 5th Element? Well that was kick ass and so is this! Love the sound, excellent variety, Salzman 4 Prez, I'm gonna go listen to it again peace!

I loved this, and thanks to those people at Vgmix, I find this remix funny too, especially at the part with the Timipinis because whenever I hear it, I say "ha, James Bond."

The beat to this reminds me of an old song by a group called "Ace of Base." Hahaha. But this is sick nasty stuff, ladies and gentlemen. It has an energy to it that most synthesized music lacks. Way to go SS!

I'm stunned. I never thought it would be possible to do so much with so little. This is a wave of sound that neither deviates far from, or copies the tune. Nothing short of excellent. Bring us Ground Man next time!

Ooh, a nice new Flash Man remix. You know what I call this mix? I'm-a call it GetEquippedWithFigureBlade. Because that's what the organ reminds me of, an old school figureskating routine. It even echoes (at least for me) like that.

What's weird (in a good way!) is how it starts really mechanized, and always has the electronic feel underneath, but still brings that aforementioned image up front with that sweet sweet skating organ, and the transitions back and forth between strings and organ and accompaniment are never...messed up, for lack of a better phrase.

Did I mention I like the organ? :D

I think the more I listen the more I like what I hear.. damn that bass is catchy. It's a refreshing take on the original (and great) Flashman theme, well done!

This song's making me happy. It's not the best remix I ever heard, but it is a good one. One problem's coming, the Flash Theme is going to be OVERMIXED :twisted: . That's not good, but this songs O.K., more than O.K. :D

Holy crap..... I'm considering re-burning my megaman remix MP3 CD just for this song...... Love the tympani and the strings! It starts to sound almost like something you'd hear in a James Bond game or something..... KUDOS!!!! 8)

By far the most bombastic of all the Flash Man remixes ive heard , theres quite many been made ..Star Salzman is the one for Mega Man music.

This song is great, probably the best Flash Man mix on the site. It is very unique piece that is permanently on my list, next to Pillars of Salt and Dreams Come True.

I'm surprised I haven't reviewed this sooner. Like all Star Salzman remixes, this thing just oozes, nay, reeks quality. The drums are awesome, but the opening is what really gets me. It sounds so synthetic, yet so right at the same time. And then it gets reintroduced later on. Awesome stuff.

Star Salzman >> j00

Two thumbs and two toes up!

Am I the only one who noticed the Neon Genesis Evangelion "Decisive Battle" theme from 1:45 to 2:35? You mixed it into the Mega Man music so well that it fit naturally :)
