I loved and hated Flashback. Loved it because it fixed everything that was wrong for me with Out of this World and was a classic adventure with really slick character animation and a very immersive universe. Hated it because there were portions that I must have played fifty times over before getting right. Viva la emulators and the amazing, super-phantasmagorical power of "save state", is all I can say :) Newcomer Shion Tanaka sends us his "Nostalgy Dimension" ReMix, our first from Delphine's classic, and it's a cool bit of late 80's style laid-back synth/rock/jazz. Admittedly, I remember the effects - particularly the birds chirping and ambient "forest sounds" - more than the music for this particular game, but there's definitely substance here. I loaded up the game in GENS just for a refresher, and sure enough, music test #11 was the track in question. Shion's taken the original, spruced it up, added extra notes in just the right places, and also dropped in a considerable amount of original soloing, making the piece his own while at the same time keeping the bassline and other aspects similar. Compared to some of the harsher FM synth sounds the Genesis offered, this is a cooler, more crystalline sound that fits the game better. Judge Malcos succinctly writes: "Very laid back feel here. Does remind me of the soundtracks from the old PC games, so the title is very appropriate. Arrangement is quite good, etc. Not much to say really, I think this mix is effective and achieves its purpose." - pretty much. Good sound quality; in particular I like the way the original contributions meld in with the source material. There are verbatim pieces of the original, but only pieces, and they blend perfectly next to Shion's embellishments and soloing. This is a piece that not only made me nostalgic for a great game, but gave me new respect for its soundtrack as well. Very good first mix, well worth checking out.
