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! :-)

Wow. I was completely surprised and completely blown away. This was awesome to hear on OCR, and it made me dance.

This is just amazing, I'm listening and I can't help but grin from ear to ear! Fantastic, funky and down right boogie-a-licious!

Incredible, just incredible. More vocal remixes from Sir Jordanius!

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.
