OCR01187 - Mega Man 2 "When You See the Flash Man, Duck and Cover"

Oh crap, I love this synth, and the violins that does their thing with it. At least I think it´s violins.

As the name implies, this would be a track with ass-kicking techno rave, but it´s not. This is more of a philharmonic techno soundtrack suitable more when Flash is showing of his skillz on the dancefloor. It´s too calm to not be a chasing battle theme, but dude, that´s not the problem. Or to be prescise, there are no problems, this is a great remix that I don´t hesitate to download. Star, you rule at this.

And now, just t-

Bummerdude, DUCK!

:ducks:

Quack, quack

<.<

ok, so the intro is slightly questionable, going for a funky vibe I guess, but then the mix rounds out.

Kinda groovy, kinda orchestral, kinda adventure movie soundtrack. Like Bach meets disco meets Indiana Jones soundtrack, except it totally isn't like that. :<

wow, it's kinda hard trying to label this mix.

imho, it's too liberal. I checked this against the source and don't really think there's enough source tune in there.

Jammin track, with a great selection of instruments, and some great interpretation of the melody. Organ sounds awesome, as do the strings.

Overall quality all around. Highly recommended.

This one has aged very nicely. Cool, unique spin on Flash Man's theme with a lot of the trademark @StarBLaSt synths and funk he's great at. Wish it went in a more varied direction at around 2:50 when it retread the verse, but it was a creative interpretation to begin with, so it can bear the repetition. Nice changeup to the strings around 3:20; that's what I'm talking about. I hope Star hasn't stopped making music entirely. His personal site's only had one track added since 2010, and I know he's had to have come up with some many great ideas since then.
