This is a very memorable and catchy lil Prodigy-esque techno mix from newcomer Fuzz, extremely well-suited to the cute-n-chaos style of the Bomberman series. Simply put: it rocks. Using very evocative, well-mixed synth textures, fantastic rhythmic Japanese cutesy vocal samples, heavy techno drums, and breaking down into a major-key interlude for the main melody and then back into the jive with a beautiful "Speedu Up!" sample, it's just pure, rockin' fun. Like I said, it truly captures all that is manic, spontaneous, lightning-quick, cute, and fun about the Bomberman games, for me. It's almost like playing the damn game. Plus it comes full-circle for the ending, and probably "vitalizes body and mind" more than three Red Bulls in a row (which I've tried and can attest to). Yatta - highly recommended, and I'm now waiting for Fuzz's next piece.
I love the drum beat in this, but the clips in the first part make
it sounds like he's in the shower.
Other than that, it's all good in my opinion.- ViRiX on August 24, 2010
Cool panning starts this one out, and a cool filtered bass synth
anchors things, but WTF those sound clips are abysmal. :-(
I can't even make it to the end of the track, despite how cool
everything is.- OA on December 10, 2009
Bomberfuzz boasts a bright and hyper character thanks to the
processing attributes of many of its synths. Just the first one
slinks left and right while speaking many vowels through an echo-y
hallway - really flexible-like. A second lead (0:43-1:11) adds a
transporting touch by sounding like it's moving through a tunnel.
Mini explosions every so often and a growling/rubbery bass synth or
two really pack on the density. Even so, the electric spurts that
go "WOW" (1:14 and elsewhere), as well as the Bomberman voice
samples, poke through the busy soundscape to serve as comic relief.
And speaking of relief, even the calm breakdown is windy, smoky,
and modulated lightly to gracefully contrast with the
Fiery, forceful, and blows up in your face just like a bomb.- Polo on July 9, 2009
This has a very strong Viewtiful Joe sound to it, what with the
catchy speed music and the anime voices screaming various phrases.
Very reminiscent, even though the mix precedes the game.
I loved the mix, to tell the truth. The voices didn't grate on me
at all, and they especially didn't do anything but enhance the
melody for me. It's a great, fast moving piece that I always get a
little surprised at when it appears on my playlist. It's also quite
infectious, in the best way possible of course.- Marmiduke on December 30, 2008
Ahh, what an energetic remix. The voices freak out our cats. The
"bombu"-section has them too loud perhaps, I can take it but I can
definitely understand why many find them irating. Otherwise the
voices are used excellently and provide plenty of motion into an
already high-speeding piece. Great work (and props for Fast
Tracking!), I too wish Fuzz had more tracks on this site.

I disliked the vocals (They are ok, but there are too many of
them), and this song clips something FIERCE on my setup.
It's a shame, this song rocks otherwise.- Drack on June 16, 2006
this is cool and those japanese volcals show want i think bomberman
sounds like- hyperlink6556 on June 6, 2006
One of the few remixes that got the remixing part right. This isn't
just a retelling, this is a REMIX. It faintly resembles the
original, but the original elements override all to get the little
bopping original into the rough, distorted, fast world that this
song creates. This is one of the few songs that is not only a great
remix, but actually a great remix.- The Vagrance on March 21, 2006
I like everything about this one. Fast, driving beat, humorous
sound effects, and great instrumentation. 9.5/10- Shwenky on September 12, 2005
Really like this remix. Someone actually made an AMV (Anime Music
Video) to this song, you can go find it at www.animemusicvideos.org

Wow. Now that is just a sweet tune. Very well done, fuzz. By that,
I mean excellent. And by that, I mean I love it.- Arnexium on January 10, 2005
The Bomberman voice confuses me in respect of this remix. For me it
passes an ackward message. Fuzz is a good remixer, but this voice
annoys me!- Txai on December 14, 2004
1 word... WTF?!?! this song is rather... interesting!
gotta love the voice samples, but still man...
i love the song in general, still a bit weird tho- Cheeszeman_ on October 11, 2004
From what I can tell, the voice samples in that one section are
calling out different colors of bombs:
"Shiro bomu" (white bomb)
"Aka bomu" (red bomb)
"Kuro bomu" (black bomb)
"Ao bomu" (blue bomb)
And of course, the other samples are "Bomber Man!", "Hyper
Bomber!", "Speed Up!", and "Yatta!". :)
Of course, this is from someone who knows only a little bit of
Japanese, so take it with a grain of salt...- codeman38 on October 10, 2004
YATTA!! I love it, I love it, I looooove it!!!- misao on June 21, 2004
