Ahhhhh! I can't take it any more! Hear my pain: if I weren't busy running this site, I'd have ReMixed both Quartet and Zillion way before U-ji got around to it. Instead, he beats me to the punch consistently on these Sega Master System classics that I grew up on. I loved this game - there was nothing else like it at the time, and there still isn't. It's a combination of side-scrolling action, cryptography, logic, and GREAT music by Bo, one of my all-time favorite game composers. You've gotta play it, at least a little. Oh yeah, it's based on a decent old-school anime of the same name, and there was a sequel for the SMS as well, but it wasn't as good. Ahh, the memories . . . (snaps back into reality) Right - the ReMix. U-ji has a great techno/trance/house style, and if you're familiar with his other works and enjoyed them, it's doubtful this will be an exception. Standard four-on-the-floor kick drum, though the hi-hats actually do some cool switching around if you listen closely. Bo's a composer that loads his pieces with catchy pop hooks much of the time, and U-ji capitalizes on that by giving each chord progression, melody, break, and lead-in its full due. There's thick synth chords, electric piano, bumpin' bass, lots of building snare rolls, and great electronic church-bell type sounds when the drumless, melodic chorus does its thing at 1'12", which for me was a moment of pure nostalgia. You gotta understand, when all the kids were playing Zelda and Mario, I was the odd man out with my Master System, playin' Alex Kidd, Shinobi, Space Harrier, and Zillion . . . they used to call me names and throw things at me . . . well, OK, it wasn't that bad, and I eventually got a NES, but the SMS will always hold a place in my heart. So I'm not the best person to give you a fair opinion of this mix, but even with my bias I can say I think you'll enjoy it if you give it a chance (the game and this mix, actually). The over-the-top section at 3'27" with the power-strings might be a little un-subtle for some, but I dug it, too. Highly recommended :)
