Okay, I gotta say that during eval, I was raving about this song. Sure, there's some timing issues as a result of so much being done in a live-feel style, but none of the shortcomings take away from the SHEER UNIMPEDED AWESOMENESS of this song. It is smooth, funky, in your face, and will wrap you up and toss you onto the boogie with slick bass, great brass, and killer synths.

Without a doubt this is my favorite track on the album, and I can not agree more that I want to hear more from SirJord. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go dance.

When I heard this in the preview I was like "What? that's ridiculous get outta here"

But now that I hear the ACTUAL SONG as a whole and without being sandwiched between 2 electronica clips, it's flippin' awesome! Possibly the most legit funky remix ever to grace the site. Jordanius you got skills, brutta. :-D

Oh boy, this is awesome. I must admit when I heard this song on the video preview, I was like "whaaaa?" so I made it a point to listen to this song first from the album. I absolutely love it. The vocals are over-the-top ridiculous, but in a great, too awesome to comprehend kind of way. I'm also a big fan of jazz, so the instrumentals are spot on in my book. Great job!

This was the mix that sealed my opinion that Sir Jordanius is a total badass. I can't even express how groundbreaking and amazing this mix is for OCR, it's just so great. Keep an eye out for this guy, everybody - he's one to watch for! :-)

How can you not like this? Seriously. I don't think this will be polarizing -- it's way too good.

I think the most common complaint with vocal remixes is that the execution is usually pretty poor and the lyrics are either poorly written or try too hard to be relevant to the game. This on the other hand, is different. It's kind of like when KatetheGreat submitted that FF9 remix a couple years back (Has it been a couple years now?), except better.

This sets a new standard for future vocal mixes, I think.

(Edit: ok i didn't really pay attention to the lyrics. they're pretty cheesy, but I don't think that detracts from the overall sound of the remix.)

I haven't been able to listen to the rest of the album. I can't stop listening to this one.

I'm trying really hard to get past the cheesy karaoke feel of the vocals, but I don't know if I can, which is a shame because I love cheesy lyrics (Hello there The Ken Song) and I love everything else about this song.

If there are people who still don't like vocal remixes after hearing this song, then there is no hope for the world.

This is one of the braver mixes I've heard in a long time. Ridiculous guts to debut with a track like this, and I salute you for it.

As Dave writes, there are some issues here that we could discuss regarding intonation...but you transmit so much raw fun to your audience that we become very forgiving very quickly. Really surprising to see this one on the album -- nice work.

This track has pretty much been stuck in my head since I've heard it. Which is 100% NOT a bad thing.

Also, I nominate this for the Track-I-Show-My-Friends-To-Get-Them-Interested-In-OCRemix Award.

I look forward to anything you do in the future, congrats on the FUNKAI BEETS!

So I posted the album over at Rockman PM. Finally getting some responses. Why am I posting this in the Smooth as Honey thread, you ask?

Smooth as Honey is the best track by far. I almost jumped out of my seat when it first came up but I listened to it till the end and whoa, did not expect something like that from OC Remix. Ever.

And Smooth as honey is surprisingly awesome.

That's why. I like it too, but more on that in the review. Once I write it. XD
