YEAH . . . Franz has had this ReMix around awhile, but when he initially submitted it the ending was cut off a bit, and it took some time to work that out and get the file reuploaded. Now that it is - enjoy! Franz's other pacman ReMix is similar in that these both uses crystal-clear synth sounds and chirpish fast synth sweep effects for percussion, and BOTH do it well. The pumping bass drum drives the beat here, which is simple and direct and doesn't play around with the original too much, but is refreshing in that sense, to a certain extent, because it does without argument improve on the original. Also, now that it's actually THERE, I like how the track concludes, without real tonic resolution. Very quality, direct, no frills ReMix here - grab it!
0:14 that organ-type sound is very distinguishing of the mix.
1:43 nice filtering effects here.

Hehe, try NINE years, not seven! Yeah, the sounds may be a little dated, but for the time that Franz did this, I'm very impressed. Hell I was in 10th grade and had never touched a DAW when he did this and I've been out of college and in the working world for almost 2 years, so mad props. Of his entire catalog on OCR, this feels like it's the most polished piece! The piece does stay fairly repetitive, but since it's short (less than 3 mins) it doesn't become overwhelming! Franz, if you're out there, come back and submit a new piece so we can hear how you've grown!!!

Anywho, this is a fun take on a straightforward song and makes it... chaotically... interesting. well, not so chaotic, but it certainly breaks down the melody into a few pieces. I didn't really hear the second half of the melody (the part that doesn't repeat itself 1632 times) but that's alright, maybe if there was another section devoted to the second half of the song it would be more interesting, but it's still interesting. Good driving music for me.

I never really got into the metroid music, but somehow i'm really feeling this track. Maybe because it has a beat now, i'm not sure.
I noticed that the mixer for this had a bunch of mixes all early on, and within a few months and then nothing. It's kindof unfortunate because I bet with a quality like this so long ago, they would really have some impressive work nowadays.
Besides the nice synths, the beat is steady if not a bit bland (I dislike the claps), but everything else is really nice.

This is very weird, if it's only based on that theme, lots of arrangement into this. It's like a forgotten OC ReMix for me. Maybe I'll make steps to it or smth

All right, I'm stumped, where is the original tune from? And what exactly [i]is[/i] the original tune...? :? Well, no matter, this tune is rockin'. :mrgreen: If you're tired of Metroid music that's all dark and moody and mysterious, pick up this number for a refreshing change. Very cool.
Personal rating: 8/10.
(I still dig the dark and moody music, too. ;))

I have one thing to say: try singing in a robot monotone "dance like a robot and kill shit" while listening to this. A thoughtful, deliberate, and even tasteful sonic ass-kicking. Woo yay.
