Alright! A great Gradius medley put together by Pablo Vasques, who has done quite a few tracker remixes of videogame themes, particularly MSX ones - be sure to visit his page for more goodnes . . this covers several different Gradius themes, hence "medley" and is definitely worth a listen . . .

Not tremendously impressive.

Can't say I'm familiar with the original source, but I get the impression that there wasn't much rearrangement here though.

It sounds like it came directly from a game.
The fade at 0:56 is like changing levels/areas in the game.
Highly reminiscent of late 80's/early 90's 16-bit game soundtracks and nicely energetic and fast paced.
It's a very interesting track and definitely shoot 'em up worthy.

Sorry, but no thanks.

However, the remix doesn't ever seem to stray from the original at all. In addition to that, there aren't transitions between pieces, so this ultimately sounds like a few short MIDI rips instead of the cohesive remix that the panel pushes for today. Cohesiveness has allowed mixes with this level of production to pass in the past, but even then, if this was mix #500 instead of #0034, it would be rejected as a midi rip outright. It's good to know the site's history though, but not worth a second listen. As Chickedwarlord says above, just go play the NES game and you'll hear 95% of the same things.

In short, just get the original. This isn't much of a sound improvement anyway.

Gradius has almost always had awesome music. Every single track is not a winner, but usually the music kicks ass. This mix starts out sounding like it was straight from the game itself. Then it starts sounding a bit better, but still sounds like an 8 or 16-bit game machine. It goes through some various Gradius tunes. If you like Gradius music you'll like this. If you want to hear some good ideogame music from the late 80's you'll also want to download this. Melody is king.
