awesome! HL's arrangements are always so in-depth and refined. great integration of prophetik's saxings as well- performance was spot-on, imo. great job to both of you! (and congrats on the dp :D)

Brad's just mad that he couldn't toot his own horn in the writeup for the third time :nicework:

Another great track for a very cool and interesting album project. Hylian surprises me a lot with his compositions, because he often takes them in directions I did not see them going. As halc said, fantastic and in-depth arrangement with tightly integrated saxophones. Definitely deep and moody.

Edit: Eyes in the Deep? More like, Eyes in the DERP!

You made a comment in the writeup that wasn't 100% fawning praise, djp? I don't know if I can respect you anymore.

Thanks for the awesome saxings, Brad. Jabu-Jabu is pleased with your offering.

When the sax came in right off the bat it sounded awful. Like, some sort of cheesy midi esque thing. That was the only time I got that impression, and it only lasted for 2 minutes? I only mention this because I spent the rest of the mix thinking "Wow, that sax fits so nicely in with the rest of the arrangement, wtf was with it when it intro'd?"

Very cool, moody, atmospheric. I think that you could have done without the chippy sounding stuff in the background, the piece stands just fine without nostalgia. Still, it doesn't hurt matters, so I suppose it's not much of a complaint that there is "too much" in a mix when the "too much" isn't doing harm. Right?


Right?
No, really. I'm a nice guy, I promise!

I know, right? WTF though, I've listened to it over and over again and just that first second or so of it just sounds so.... not live! I've heard lots of live sax so that's not the issue, I just don't know what it is!
No, really. I'm a nice guy, I promise!

Uh oh, he's onto you, Brad. You'd better update your human program before he finds out what you are.

I don't know why but this remix somehow reminds me of Tales of Symphonia.
Although I haven't finished The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and thus don't really know the original song I really like this remix.

Nice arrangement; interesting how it changes from slow to fast and back again. The sax is very sexy, particularly e.g. around 1:15. It reminds me of Snatcher.

Man, that intro is pretty sexy. Nice beat to it. I like the piano work and the atmosphere of this ReMix is great. The change in tempo was a cool touch. Well done on this one.
