All Jivemaster ReMixes come with Surgeon Pretzel's warning: Likely to cause infectious butt-moving and admiration of Jive's formidable technodance capabilities. Jivemaster's legacy of great Sonic ReMixes is turning into a full-fledged dynasty - way I figure, it's not too long before Sonic Team tracks him down and hires him ^^ This ReMix of Sonic 3's final stage is tres groovy, with a flanged heavy-hitting drum track, phat low-end synths, some cool megafilter breaks, and a kickin' bass solo that sits on the same note then riffs up and down at about 2'16". The variety of textures taking up the low end here is really impressive - in addition to slightly reverbed mini-moog style bass there's a detuned-saw wave type synth playing double duty as bass number 2. Jivemaster strikes again.

I don't really like how there isn't much of an intro; it's like "Wham!" then music.
It's also too "white noise"-y for me.
It's does have an interesting techno beat to it though.
It improves on the original but doesn't expand on it, which is one of the negative aspects of this mix.

How creepy that I just reviewed the sole Jazz Jackrabbit song on this site (posted way after this comment was posted, also). Weird.
The song is a bit too...buzzy for me. I feel like there's a coin on my desk that's being rattled by the bass, the entire time. It's annoying, honestly, after too long.
From previous reviews, the mix is apparently an improvement from the original, but it's nothing that I would go out of my way to listen to. Improving on a source can only go so far. Nothing it really bad that I can pinpoint, it just doesn't hold my attention overall.

After listening to the original, I am appreciating this mix a lot more, as it improves greatly upon the source, though it still isn't a favorite.

Oooh, another bass and beat heavy Jivemaster tune, are all his tunes this cool? Okay, I'm not a big fan of this particular mix, but I think that's the original song at work there, Jivemaster does a high quality mix of this tune with a buzzy bass sample and some interesting percussion. If you're a fan of Jivemaster then grab this tune.[/b]
