If the inverted title wasn't a dead giveaway, yes, this is a companion piece to The Wingless's previous Super Metroid ReMix by the name of 'One Girl in all the World'. The ReMixer writes:
"Again, for effect, the mix I am submitting... is All the World in One Girl, a very light, bubbly, warm piece. One Girl in All the World is dark and flinty, with alot of rain elements. If you hear something that sounds like metroid set to the Sims, you've got the right mix. Simple, yes?"For my money, both mixes offer something different and are worth your time. If you're feeling bubbly and light, perhaps you should sit down for a second. Oh, and listen to this newer second version, which actually reminds me of some incidental BGM in some romantic comedy anime or another; the funky, upbeat B3 organ riffs, playful piano, shuffling, minimal breakbeat, giddy clarinet harmonies, and overall lighthearted nature. There's a couple bits that have some squirreliness around the edges; the transition at 2'54" seems to have a slight delay or hung note, VERY minimal. Most people probably won't even hear that, I don't know why I mentioned it...0'44" in the intro also has an interesting interval going on, though it's also in transition and leads into the next bit. Regardless of these two very subtle quibbles, this is an excellent, unique arrangement for Metroid; it's not every day you hear Samus's tunes get the bubblegum treatment. There's offbeat, almost reggae-inspired synth hits in the intro, the afforementioned clarinet, choir, vibes, some very low-level synth doing a neat little pattern, and in particular I enjoyed paying attention to the organ, both when it's foreground and also when it's meandering sporadically in the background. Different mood for The Wingless and for Metroid as well, and good stuff to boot.

But I think the really great part about this one is that it gives it a completely new feel, and is still recognizable, yet amazingly new. Really unique.

Anyways, for a little critiquing of this song.
First off, I'd like to say that this is probably my favorite ReMix of all time. I really don't hear many cons to mention, so I guess I'll just start with listing all the wonderful things about it!
Great piano. I love its line, and I wish I had the music to it, although it is repeated enough that someone could probably pretty easily figure it out on the piano. I personally liked the length and such of this song, but people I showed it to (the philistines!) didn't really like it. This is the major downside of this song, which they all pointed out: It repeats a [U]lot[/U]. This could get annoying if you didn't enjoy the section it repeats to start with. While there may be some variation, it's not enough to really tell without some serious digging.
I liked the strings coming in at 2:48 - it adds some nice variation from the theme that's been looping. Also the three different minor variations on the theme that are looped throughout the entire piece. Also, I have to say - endings are hard. This song, however, managed to NAIL that ending! Great job, Wingless! 9.5/10!

Since that time it has been on all my playlists. You do a great job of achieving a nice light and relaxed feel throughout the entire piece. That to me is its greatest selling point. I absolutely love mixes like this especially since there seem to be only a small number of them.
Great job! :)

This is a great mix, but without it's compliment, it doesn't just feel complete, so check 'em both out.

It is one of THE greatest songs I have EVER heard, thus I have to thank you for making it.

I can see it before me! A humorous track with phat beatz and digitized voices that nobody with an internet connection will be able to avoid.
"Now playing: The Wingless - Super Metroid All Your World Are Belong To Girl OC ReMix"
Good job on this track though, it is really amazing to hear something with this positive emotion and so much going on all the time considering the source! There really are no limits to what you can do (except the submission rules then, huhu).

You beat me to it! Drat! I was going to say that the following section (for reference, taken from Kureejii Lea's review on page 1) put into words exactly what I thought:
"'All the World in One Girl' is more introspective. It shows an underlying, simple happiness and beauty. It's cheerful, but not obnoxiously so. The piano is light and intricate, flowing beautifully throughout the piece, and the organ is a lovely, lively addition that suits the song well. There seems to be quite a variety of instruments that are perfectly blended together. The drums don't do much, but they're subtle and carry the piece without 'intruding', so I haven't a problem with them."
I'd add too the bit about not recognizing the Brinstar theme until I made a conscious effort to hear it--except for the part at 2:04. I heard that right away, and it has always been my favorite part. It's like angel food cake on piano. :-)
I love this piece and am very grateful for its existence.
Edit: By the by, this art piece compliments the music beautifully--even though it's titled for the counterpart. Be sure to enlarge to picture.
