While it's nice to do something for Sonic for its 25th, I think restricting it to places and music pieces covered in Sonic Generations would instead make the whole thing feel locked to just one game instead of being a full-on tribute.

If you want my take in this, what the Mega Man 25 album did was allowed artists free reign out of a selection of games, provided each game out of that selection would get 2 or 3 arrangements out of it. I'd say that the artists should have more creative freedom over what source they want to cover, as long as there's 2 or 3 tracks for each game represented.

Just my two cents :wink:

Actually, I've thought about it a lot before... Maybe, you're right :wink: P.S. Would you like to claim something?

Not right now, just chipping in my two cents on this situation.

Also you literally didn't need to take my suggestion without hearing anyone else's opinions first - let's just start slow and see what everyone else has to say. :lol:

That's two years...but dang, still been a long time. Whew.

At any rate...I'd like to see what all opinions come up for this...but I want to throw something in here. (Plus that date is so far away, I still have some time to polish some skills)

Which track would you like to take? :)

That might be interesting :3 plus considering it's gonna be something like 2 years from now, it will give some time to work hard on the tunes :3 I'm a little unsure on what to pick up tough :/ I might need to look up in the "Club Needlemouse Scrapped Tracks Bin" for reference :P I'll claim my tune asap.

Anyway, throw me in :D

Whooooaaaa. I think we're jumping to this way too quickly. It seems Sanic is all that pops up on ocremix. I mean, that's clearly not the case, but honestly I feel I hear more about Sonic remixes than anything else.

I'm all for this, but honestly we don't need to constantly just be jumping right into Sonic projects. I think this could be cool, but yeah, like Rexy said, let's take this really slow right now.

Really, instead of recruiting, I think what you should be doing is generating interest. See how many people are interested in doing this. Also be aware of what you're getting into. Directing an album (and from what I'm thinking, this one could be considerably large) is a huge task to take on.

Well is not a bad point, actually. Also given the circumstance that the 25th anniversary would be in 2 years or so will surely give some time to generate interest first and then also give the chance to grab a track calmly and choose it with criteria.

It feels a bit rushed IMO. You should have contacted some artists directly before jumping into the fire. But considering Sonic is very popular, it should go on well.

Yeah, I know that directing an album is hard, but I've written that I need a director/co-director, just because I'll leave Moscow for the whole summer. Also, I think that 2 years is enough to gather a lot of people, to polish all the tracks and etc. But I don't rush anything, because you can enter the project whenever you want until it's close to be released.

I agree with all the previously mentioned points. I'm just marking down for interest...

But this would probably be a huge thing. So yeah, no rush.

Hey, it's me again! Just want to say that I need a co-director, 'cause I won't have any chance to surf the Web in summer as I'll leave Moscow. So I appreciate any help!

Popping here once again to say that if there is found no peron to co-direct this album until June 1st, I'll have to pause this project. If you want to co-direct this album, please, PM me. :-D

Creating a project and knowing you'll have to leave it for 1+ month isn't a good way to start. You should try again once you're back, and think about your strategy and the production of the album. Directing an album is a difficult task, and getting it done and released is even harder.

Yeah... But I supposed that I woub be able to find someone. And, of course, I should have thought much better about directing. Well, I have the whole summer to think about album, hehe. :)

I honestly think this is all going too fast at the moment and not many people are totally involved in it.

It's a Sonic album, of course it's going fast! :P

Seriously though there is still plenty of time. No need to rush it.

I'm willing to help co-direct/manage this project while you're gone, but I HIGHLY suggest you take the advice of everyone else and start slow with this. We have 2+ years, and Sonic has a huge fanbase.

If anything, this will help me get hands-on experience for when I want to head a Mega Man Battle Network project.

Man, I higly appreciate your help! And, of course, I've already understood how recklessly I started this project. :tomatoface:

I think this could be awesome, if executed correctly. As suggested before, about three tracks per game would suffice. Also, if possible, I think it would be cool to give every era it's own disc. This would potentially mean three or four CD's, but I think that will surely tie everything together. Finding mixers for that, well, that's an entirely different matter... I'm no mixer, but I'm willing to offer any help you need :)
