PxFury sends us his latest work, our first arrangement from the SNES RPG Bahamut Lagoon. Besides being fairly strangely named, Bahamut Lagoon was a Squaresoft title that didn't see release outside Japan, though it's been translated by some very talented guys and a patch is available. It's not widely regarded as having a great or even good soundtrack by most Squaresoft buffs, but you might not pick that up from PxFury's mix, which combines trance and rock elements well. There's still not too conspicuous or memorable a melody present - PxFury would have needed to dig pretty deep to make that happen - but the ReMixer has capitalized on what was there with some nice acoustic drums, spacious reverbed synths and deep analog bass, and a delicate, delayed piano. There's also a variety of ambient & synth effects thrown in for ornamentation, and several tempo changes help elaborate upon the minimal melodic structure of the original. More than anything, my comment about the original melody would be that it sounds like a really long, extended intro that - instead of breaking into the actual song - turns out to be the actual song. PxFury has done good, solid work to help address this, and this is where I think the tempo changes, though at times seemingly contrived, were probably needed. If you're not getting my drift, essentially I think Px did a great job with the mix, but it's not an original I would have singled out for special attention, nor could any amount of interpretation outside of the truly "poetic" (read: very loose) change my evaluation. The original's not awful by any means, it just doesn't stand out to me as a song, and feels more like an interlude or as I mentioned, intro. Judges didn't seem to have any of same feedback, so do take that with a grain of salt. Otherwise, like them I'm digging the overall production - the mix is spacious and crystal-clear, instruments well-defined, and DSP applied varyingly and certainly liberally. I like the acoustic kit used and the whirly-bird synth effect on the ending especially. For me, this is a good ReMix of an average original. More often than not those adjectives are reversed, so in a way it's refreshing, but draw your own conclusions and give it a listen.
