I thought there was quite a bit of low end on the piano reverb (EX: 1:55), maybe from the low cut being so low or just the piano tone itself like Justin said. The drums were hurt a bit from the whole ReMix pushing the limiter rather hard. Perhaps the bass guitar is a touch too boomy at times, and I wish there could have been a 4/4 ("normal time") section that was a tad more bassy more often (like the hit at 2:37), but those are minor things. I like the energy and cheery mood here, and though Vig makes sense that the humanization sometimes feels awkward, overall I think this is a pretty strong ReMix. Good job!

Having been away from the site for some time, I was thrilled when I saw a new entry for Tyrian. This track captured the feel of the level very well in my opinion. I expect I would have to listen a few more times to find the issues that others cited because I'm too fired up to care at the moment.

Nice remix, I enjoyed it very much! The source isn't something I knew very well but I recognized none the less!

Good work

The intro to this was nice, but what really made my ears perk up was that piano and percussion combo starting at about 0:47 which lead straight into the rest of the mix. Cool choice of writing there. Lots of enthusiasm going on throughout the mix, and while there are certain production items that sounded a bit off or just came off as too much, there was really nothing that turned me off to it. Overall, intro was definitely the strongest part, but the whole mix was a nice piece of work. Not bad.

Wow, that's a beautiful intro. And then, next thing you know, spaceships are takin' off and stuff is happening! I agree with Shariq; the guitars are joyous, and that's the way I like them. They really hit that sweet spot that I can't get enough of. Maybe OA should ReMix this ReMix. :D

Well done, fellows! I really appreciate the modern treatment. Now I can count, just a little bit more, on my younger contemporaries having heard of this melody!

Glad to see Tyrian getting some love. I actually grabbed this remix back when I saw it on the Workshop board, though this version is a slight improvement. Great remix.

This is the sort of tune you imagine playing alongside the credits scroll, perhaps with bits of concept art fading in and out. Well done!

Tyrian, woot!

This is pretty much a perfect representation of what the first level was all about - uplifting, awesome, and heavy. Love the mix, man!

The intro is just so peaceful and calm. But when it kicks and becomes more upbeat, more uplifting, it doesn't become worse. Love the chippy synth at around one minuite mark. I also find it rather interesting when it drops at 1:48 and pianos come in. Gotta agree with DarkeSword, btw. Guitars are just top-notch here.
