Excellent opener and pad leads so far. This is alot more calm than most of 8-bit Instrumental's stuff. It kind of reminds me of the GooGoo Dolls for some odd reason. Other than the neat drum/shaker variation in the middle this is pretty much just a relaxing mix of one of my favorite songs in the soundtrack. Nothing too far out, nothing too mellow either. Just right for someone who needs a relaxing song to chill to after a long day at work.

8/10

I'm not hearing the Goo Goo Dolls. The guitar riffs around 1:10-1:30 can follow from some songs like Lazy Eye or Only One, around their power-pop mid-90s sound era, but the rest is a very bass-driven, slow-paced atmospheric piece more in tune with spaghetti western than GGD. (/end GGD fanboy mode)

It delivers what it promises, and sounds nice. Not my favorite Brinstar mix though, a bit too limited in scope.

Reminds me of Luis Bacalov's Summertime Killer off the Kill Bill 2 OST. This mix feels like it could fit in that soundtrack/movie.

I've been chilling to this song for the last 20 minutes. Any song that can let me do that without getting bored deserves respect. Excellent.

This isn't an 8-bit instrumental!

So from what I can tell, this is fairly minimalistic. My main problem though is that it's too short, and it doesn't really go further from the original source. Definitely not a fan of this unfortunately.

It's got a nice live sound to it that I've come to love from you guys, but I've gotta say that it feels strange hearing a song that moves so slowly be so short... It feels like there's a lot of room to expand here that didn't really get covered, like this song is just a very small segment of a larger version.

That's not to say that what's here is not enjoyable, because it definitely is... I just feel like it's missing a lot.

Parabéns pelo som

I like very much the chill vibe that's going throughout the mix. Even the faster movement in the middle can't shake that feeling, great job on that. The textures are quite nice as well. DJP said it right that the contrasts really bring this together, along with the live playing.

My favorite section is right around 1:30 or so. That is where I feel like the style really comes out just right. Nice work on this.

The timing is a bit sloppy at times, and sometimes it feels like the drummer meant to do some kind of fill but almost dropped the sticks and didn't. Overall though, this is very cool. The recording and mixing leaves nothing to ask for.

lofi and charming, this song is all about the vibe. I like the texture of it overall, and when they all come together on a unison line is really cool.

This is super repeatable, I could jam on this for hours.
