First off, this is specifically from the Sega CD version of the quintessential side-scrolling beat 'em up, Final Fight, so you won't find the original on the SNES or potentially even the arcade versions. Newcomer Nighteyes The Wolf gives us our first "FF" ReMix, which is sort of a mixed bag of goodies - there's some compelling, quality elements mixed in with some other bits that aren't on the same level. But overall, there's a nice groove here, mixing grunge guitar with sporadic r'n'b style drummage and a repeating bell pattern overtop that. Some of the guitar hits were noted as sounding a bit like ducks . . . yes . . . well, I haven't been extensively privy to the full myriad of duck sounds, but I didn't get that specific mental image myself :) There's some decent solo synth that gives the right variety of texture, a breakdown around 3'30" that extends the arrangement's length to sufficiently saturate its near-five minute playtime, and overall the mixing is clear, panning defined, and sound quality above-average. The drum programming is really the anchor that takes the arrangement to the next level, for my money - the syncopation and repeated hits are reminiscent of some of the better boy band pop drum tracks, only used with sustained grunge guitars in a more deliberate context in this scenario. If there's one element of bands like NSYNC's songs that I do dig, it's the production, especially on the drum end, so I like to see this sort of cross-genre borrowing, intentional or not. The bell pattern that persists throughout might be the biggest setback element, as it's always there, always fairly forefront, and isn't the best patch nor the most interesting part to be prominent. Didn't bother me too much, though, and the successfull integration of very respectable grunge guitars into an arrangement where you wouldn't necessarily expect them compensated. Good first mix from the venerable Final Fight universe, even if it's from the redbook-specific soundtrack, and a promising initial contribution from Nighteyes the Wolf. Check it out.
