OCR02003 - Donkey Kong Country 2 'A New Place'

36 posts in this topic

Edit: That vocalist I mentioned that M.J. Ault sounds like is Steve Conte.

THAT'S WHO I WAS TRYING TO THINK OF.

And you're right, he totally does.

As a rather HUGE fan of Cowboy Bebop, New York Dolls, & especially Yoko Kanno & and the Seatbelts (I still own the original Cowboy Bebop OST box set, well, one of many), I will take that as a HUUUGEE compliment. STEVE CONTE RULES!!!!

I love this mix! LOVE IT! I have always liked the original. I love this mix because it is so different from the original but still retains the elements of the original. I really love the lyrics if anyone out there has them. Awesome remix. One of my favorites. I really love how a lot of the newer OC Remixes are incorperating lyrics into the mixes. It's awesome. Keep 'em coming!

May the Force be with you.:wink:

I haven't commented on this mix? For shame! ....well, I commented on it for the writeup already :wink: .

It's a spectacular song though, one of my favorites from the album I have to say. I'm still in awe of the final product, as Taucer and I were skeptical originally at how it was going to turn out with just the instrumental, but I think this song is a perfect example of not being hasty. We waited to hear how it would come out, and the final product is gorgeous. It is a testament to the power of vocals when utilized correctly.

I have nothing but high regards for this song, and it makes its mark as a stellar song on OCR.

:D I love the harmony and the voices in this remix. I wish the composer had done a bit with the male and female voices singing at the same time. Other than that I think this song is awesome.

wow...this is the first remix I heard with vocals that actually sounded professional and beautiful. And of all the games it's DKC :D that surprised me a lot. Great work! Also this is to everyone...I've been trying to find the song to Hugo Strange's death, when you go down into the alleyway and pay your respects to him a beautiful orchestrated piece plays. If ANYONE finds the name to this piece I'd be very very grateful. I can't find it on the OST which really upsets me. Again if anyone finds the name to it...email me at codez1992@gmail.com or just message me on here...

May I have a version of this remix without vocals? I don't mean to offend anyone, I just prefer instrumental music rather than music that has lyrics and I imagine that an instrumental version of this remix would sound really good. Not that it doesn't sound really good now, but again I prefer instrumental.

I keep telling everyone that this is one of my favorite mixes on the site and I haven't even reviewed it?! For shame.

I love the lyrics so much, they help me imagine a close bond between the two characters. The guitar also really reinforces that feeling of fellowship or maybe even love in the song.

If you haven't listened yet what are you waiting for?!

This is excellent; all the background components are on point, and the vocals are pretty spot-on, too.

Very good song. I think it may be pleasant even for those who don't like vocals-heavy tracks, simply because the vocals are so charming :) The airy/soft nature of this song is just wonderful, and even the electric guitar solo doesn't spoil it at all. Nice relaxing tune - be sure to check it out!
