OCR00054 - Metroid 'efsisos featuring Samus Aran'
Posted 12 May 2002 - 02:50 AM
Nice and spooky. Starts out without percussion and it gives you a smooth and well laid out melody. The percussion comes in at just the right time and really adds to the mix. I can only imagine a GameCube version of Metroid with this theme in there. We'll see how the GC version sounds but if it is as good as this then it will be a hit. Highly recommended!

I agree with Joe; the timing on the percussion is excellent and well-executed. It helps add to the mood, it's pleasant not to hear overbearing percussion in a remix for once.
Overall: very melodic, by all means true to the general mood of Metroid, brilliantly done remix.
Personal Rating: 10/10! I can't find a single fault with it! Highly recommended... the cream of the crop when it comes to Metroid music remixes!

The tune is a tiny bit off, but other than that, it's GREAT!
its called creativity. thats what makes it a good mix. anyone can rip midi.
there are a lot ofthings i like about this mix. the mood is good, the chord interpretation is fantastic. howver i think that with a little work this mix could be twice as good as it is. the patches leave something to be desired, especially the harmony guitar. also, i think it doesnt build up enough. in my mind, i hear this song going into a heavy rockin' crunchy guitar driven refrain. (i'm sure many of you noticed that everything i hear in my mind tends to go into a guitar-related something.) i think this mix is very good, but i think it has potential that was not tapped.

Good piano and strings sounds.
I liked the interplay that efsisos created between the title screen theme and the Brinstar theme, but it didn't really go much farther than a hint, which was disappointing.
"You done a nice jaeorb there, remixers!"

Very well done. Instead of having the crud that they call music in the recent Metroid Prime games, they should have real melodies like this. This song reminds me of a Metroid of better times.
Bahaha. better not let Darke hear that.

I completely agree. When I heard this, I thought it was one of the newer OCRs I hadn't quite gotten around to adding to my playlist until now. Then I saw it was from 02. After listening to many orchestral versions of Metroid themes, the instruments sound a tad fake, but it isn't a huge distraction. Overall very good.
Why does this thread only have 8 replies anyway? This is one of the best Metroid mixes on the site by far, and it's quite old to boot.

I always seem to be saying how surprised I am that a Metroid mix sounds good, since I'm not much of a fan of the source, but it seems that the mixers who tackle the soundtrack almost always do a good job. Maybe there is more to the Metroid soundtracks than I originally thought.
I think this one is good enough and has been around long enough to be called a classic OCR track. Check it out guys,

Everything here feels especially deliberate, well paced, and well placed. Carefully constructed like some lost ruin.
This conveys a lot of the dire purposeful mood found in Metroid games without a sense of cavernous loneliness. I really like this piece, and its a good find.

He may be chibi, but he can kick your butt!
