OK, this does have a few sub-par samples in it and does have the sound of a MIDI file being played through an admittedly decent GM soundset. The guitar is the most egregious offender, having a distinctly uniform attack and synthetic tone. However, this Zelda 64 arrangement from Dr. Fruitcake compensates with a style that's pure fun and musically solid - very upbeat, with brisk soloing, happy-go-lucky transitions and an overall passion to live, figuratively speaking. The snare roll in the very intro gives you some inkling that the good doctor does know what he's doing. When the guitar does enter, yes, it's clearly - one might say flagrantly - fake. BUT it's well sequenced and rocks out in spite of itself. Then we get a steel drum, island rendition of the same theme - probably the highlight for me - before segueing into a rock w/ brass hits section. I shudder to think what Dr. Fruitcake could do with some really stellar samples, because in this case they are holding an otherwise imaginative, stellar arrangement from being, to paraphrase the U.S. Army, "all it can be". Regardless, judges appreciated the flamboyancy and fun of the arrangement, and it's not like the soundset is extraordinarily sub-par, it's just average. The way it's used, however, is decidedly above average. Kudos to Dr. F for a good debut ReMix - hope to hear him pick up some quality soundfonts and start rocking our worlds in the future.
