This is nice. Piano sounds really pretty, arrangement is great. In other words, exactly what one would expect from His Jigginlyness.

All I can say...is...is wow...

As djp said, I would have NEVER imagined the adrenaline-pumping F-Zero theme to make a piano arrangement. When I started to listen, I was skeptical that the arrangement would be too simple, and basically be the same song just played on piano. But it's not. The left hand is active all the time, making those scales fill in what would otherwise be dull space, and making the entire piece flow from start to finish. And fluidity is a great tool on the piano.

My only gripes are the slips on the keys now and again. You can tell he mistakenly hit certain notes at certain moments and make you go, "Huh?" But those slips are gone in a second, and you're instantly swept away at how elegant such a hardcore song sounds on such a gentle instrument.

I really like this mix. Not only is it my favorite F-Zero mix on the site now, but it's up there in piano arrangements with BogusRed's "Into the Golden Sunset" and kLuTz's pieces. Nice stuff John.

9.6/10

I have been a fan of all your f-zero remixes, but I think this one takes the cake. Maybe I'm just a sucker for piano solos, but this was amazing. Great arrangement, and great execution. Bravo.

Wow cool stuff. Never thought this would make a good piano piece either, but it works. I love the feel of this, such a different feel from the original but oh so good. Very good stuff!

This is my favorite F-Zero track to begin with and what an awesome piano arrangment.

Incredible. This deserves more attention.

It hasn't even been out for a full day and already has a good amount of comments.

Wonderful mix. Not quite as good as Live from the Yggdrasil, but still a great piano arrangement. A bit sloppy at points, but your playing and arrangement more than make up for it.

Now where's the Magnet Man?
