Mega Man 2 'The Doctor Named Wily'

This sounds kinda weird but not in a bad way. The bass is extreme right and the percussion is extreme left, which is bothersome if you ever plan on listening to it with headphones, but on a regular stereo system it's alright. This song ends pretty much right when it should. Not bad but not great. Cool ending!

Dr. Wily's stage theme is one of the best tracks from MegaMan 2 however, this remix bites. It sounded as if the artist recycled the notes from the midi file only changing the instruments. The artist did add his\her own drum background, but it's boring.

I wouldn't say this bites but its not a mix i often listen to. The 2-3 second intro and 2 sec ending are the onlt redeeming features i personally gather from this. The sad thing is it does sound midi-ish unfortunately and the constant drum is too repetative. The ending is pretty neat though.

This remix is ok. It seems the remixer did the best with the tools he had available. The drum beat is rather uninspiring; the bass is nice around 1:10, but other than that, sounds like a midi rip with some marginally better instrument choices than the original.

You people are too kind; this is crap. The remixer took one of the best MM tunes ever and took a big dump on it. It's a friggin' NSF rip with worse instrumentation. It's panned all wrong. It's chez and unemotional. No time was put into this. Remixer: this is OC Remixed not OC Regurgitated. I'm almost offended that this is downloadable.

Rest in Peace, Blachly. :?

I had no idea that the dude was dead. I apologize if my 'review' offended anyone. But, as much as death must be respected, it doesn't make the remix any better.

When this remix started, I enjoyed it very much. The synth was perfect I think, maybe the hihat beat in the back was too tight, but it didn´t really matter.
I didn´t vary much, it went on with its own pace, but I enjoyed the melody change at 1:10, that one was great.

I´m sorry for the loss of Charles´s family.

This is an article written about Charles Blachly in
his Honors College Magazine the semester after he
died (April 2003).

Not really digging this one; it sounds basically like a NSF rip with some panning and additional drums.
It's unfortunate that Charles died before he could really put the time in to be an awesome mixer.

Sorry to say I'm not a fan of this. It's unoriginal, and the sounds are very midi. Sorry, again.

I remember this mix, and I'm still not a fan of it. It is a crappier cover version of the original - for a song that has been done so many times, I'll take numerous other versions of this over this particular one any day.

While this is interesting because of the panning/sound placement, that's about it. This is just beats plus source melody and that's it. No more, no less. As consequence, there's better stuff out there. Nothing much to see (or hear) here.

Yeah......yeah, no. Sorry, but I'm going to have to agree that this just doesn't do it. It sounds very MIDI and there's not a whole lot of addition going on with the source, which brings it closer to the realm of cover for me.
