Just check out the electric guitar sound in this awesome & beautiful track by Kaijin of the 'Sky Chase Zone' from Sonic 2. Sure, the whole ReMix is great, moving, well-orchestrated, yadda-yadda, but I think the guitar's take on the melody is my favorite portion. You've also got kick-ass winds, and similarly a 'light' and floating feel to Kaijin's Xenogears ReMix. His ReMixes, other than providing excellent ammunition for anyone who argues that soundfonts can sound VERY professional, tend to bring out the more dramatic and melodic elements of their original counterparts, with a really epic, sweeping feel. Can't dance to it, unless you're talking couples slow-dance, but it's great drivin' tunage for a breezy summer afternoon. Good thinkin' music, I dig it and you should too ^^

P.S to the artist Keep up the good work. even your newer stuff is great. I just have a childhood attachment to sonic music. Yours sticks out in a good way. Doesn't everyone agree? also i have the 2001 version.

The instrumentation itself is perfectly chosen, and the flow is super smooth. The short length makes the song very addictive as far as the repeat button is concerned, and the sunny atmosphere is very cheerful.
The drum rhythms are fantastic, especially when the little triangle-style instrument comes in.
Despite some flaws, I totally love this mix.

The guitar sounds a little strange though, since it sounds like they've being played 500 metres away and is now only echoing. Almost the same thing can be said about the piano too, it feels like they were put at a long distance so that they wouldn't be able to ruin the calm feel this remix has.
Still, this arrangement really do soothe your nerves when you're listening to it. Nice work, Kaijin.

Once in a while when I look up and see sunny blue skys, it bring back memories of this Sonic 2 song.
It reminds me of the golden days of gaming, childhood, and forgotten friends, when all was good and life was easy.
People who know me would say I never shed a tear for anything, but when I hear this song, it brings a tear to my eye. :oops:
Thank you Kaijin.[/b]

Ack! alright, [i]now [/i]i hate it... just heard a fade out ending... :cry:
Alright, so it's not that bad :P I have to disagree with djp though, i think the guitar sounds too fake and synthy - if it's actually real, i'd be really amazed. There's just something far too clean and perfect about it, you know it can't be real. That, and almost every note is picked, has the exact same little tremolo on it, and always hits exactly on the beats - and there's no fret noise...
Anyhoo, composition is good regardless, and yeah, there's some nice solid work here :)
