The phrase 'short punk-rock gem' probably gets over-used, and I'm as guilty as the next would-be music critic, but that sums up this and a couple of JAXX's other hard-and-fast guitar ReMixes I've had the pleasure of posting in the past. Also, I never thought I'd be saying this, but it's been too long since our last Chrono Trigger ReMix (and a hush falls over the crowd). Superchunk rhythm and energetic drums form the bed for two lead guitars on either side of the stereo field to perform a simultaneously beautiful and raucous duet. At times in harmony, and at times trading of bits of melodic phrases, in just a singe minute (exactly!), this track proves its point and then some. JAXX ReMixed 'No Time' before, but this is a decidedly different and equally worthwhile version. Good eats.

It's a bit stiff and a bit short, but really fun.

I miss JAXX. He was one of my favorite remixers. I liked this track in particular. Listening to it now, it's easy to see how high the bar has risen for production quality in order to pass a mix. It's got that old-school mark going for it, but I think that helps it stand out in the genre it shoots for. Nice, fast, gritty punk rock. I really like lead harmony on this track in particular.

I would love listen to a longer version of this one!

If possible, do it! PLEASE! :grin:

A refreshing take on the Zeal theme, but it's definitely way too short. Should have looped it at least once or thrown in a solo or something.

Guitar tone was pretty bleh, and 1 minute is way short. It has decent sloppy energy, but Jaxx has way better tracks.

I have lost the count of how many times I´ve said that we all should stop remixing Zeal, but this a giant turntable, sounds like a live concert in the heart of Zeal.

But you did the same mistake as AmIEvil, you did a marvelous guitarmix but made it to short, we want to hear more if that´s your question.

Anyhow, great stuff, JAXX, rock´n rollllllllllll. :tomatoface:

Hey Rimfrost, does your media player have a "loop" function? Admittedly, it might be nicer if it were longer, but the end can blend so well into the start that there's really no need. That and it kicks more ass than you. And I never thought I'd ever like punk rock...

ANY remix , no matter how good and sweet it is , has to be at least 2 mins in length to become enjoyable as we all know..

It's not punk at all though, sounds more like 80s metal..

Sweet remix nonetheless.

Nobody does it like JAXX. And no, this shouldn't be any longer, its perfect the way it is. If you ask me, it kinda sounds like Sum 41 is playing.

Gee, it's a good thing I requested this get posted (hey, credit where credit is due, huh? :D ), or we would've been punk-less! I love it, love it, LOVE IT!

Hi ppl ok

This is a great song

THE Greatness but the only problem with it is that it is too short, it should be longer and has the potential to do so

:D
