Whoa. Double whoa. This ReMix is INSANE. Not insanely good, although it certainly is good in my book, but just purely INSANE. Cycling through musical styles like no one's business, with strange, inventive transitions, Mr. Mustin's FF3 opus is not for everyone. But anyone that appreciates the concept - staying up playing FF so late the game begins to seep into your skull - should appreciate the ReMix. Note that Mustin plays a fairly wicked distorted guitar AND saxophone on this track. At the end there's this classic part where you can hear . . . oh, no, I won't ruin it for you. Aptly named 'The ATOMIZER', this ReMix is sure to frighten young children, drive even the sanest squaresoft fan into shrieks of sleep-deprived madness, and add a little spice to your mornings if you play it with the volume at II ^^

- orchestral guidance in the beginning
- The Fierce Battle beneath the menu sounds around 1:11
- tambourine's playful accompaniment starting at 1:45
- rapid flute cameos of Kefka's theme at 2:15-2:24
- trumpet-led section at 2:27
- percussion around 3:01+
Mindblowing overall, but also a gold mine of nifty nuggets if you listen closely.

Now I'm kinda split. It's a pretty basic arrangement at heart that heavily samples from the spc and some sound fx. I wouldn't call the placement of those fx and spc random, but I wouldn't call them well thought out either. On the other hand, it has a nice intense feeling to it, and the guitar and the sax are very cool. It pushes things to the silly extreme in a way that a lot of mixes don't, which I admire. And the ending makes me LOL.
But I guess it hasn't aged as well. There are other remixes that do the "crazy" thing better, I think. But I can't deny that I still enjoy it, call it a guilty pleasure. I would like to see Mustin do a mix like this today, but he doesn't seem to do any of this kind of stuff anymore.

Final Fantasy 6 TheAtomizer was the track name or something
it sounds like the stuff i make kind of except it hurts more to listen to
though it doesn't quite have as many explosions as my tracks do

This is not the place for such an arguement. However, in casual defense, if you listen past the random (yet funny) sound clips, you'll notice an excellent remix.
I mean, it put (for a moment) a saxaphone to [i]Atma Weapon: The Fierce Battle[/i]. What is that, other then awesome?

but the rest of the mix is good. Though really, I can't see how a few samples would instantly turn everyone off.

AND IT´S SOUNDS LIKE BUGS BUNNY!!!
OK, nuff funny said. The arrangement was good, I liked those flutes and the strings, and when everythin´ went over to some more crazieness, the techno and thrash metal waltzed in through the back door. That trumpet was quite well, don´t really know what kind of synth you used after that. Nice flutes afterwards, and....I can´t do this anymore, ther´s just TOO MUCH!
Personally, all the sound effects of cartoon figures and Kefka with his weapon of destruction doesn´t really did it fer me. BUT, Mustindude has a point. Remixing mustn´t neccessarily need to be quality stuff with excellent arrangement and all that. He just did this one to do something that noone would have expected(well, almost noone) and surprised with something crazy, wacky, and of course INSANE. Mustin surprised us all, but there are no shame to loose, just listen to this and see for yourself.
