Pretty much; Greg writes:
"I've always loved the Ocean Palace source tune, and felt that there was a lot of potential for development into an epic electro/orchestral/rock style, so I attempted to do just that with this mix. Little bit of self-indulgent keyboard soloage (sp?) at 3:15 for kicks, and the original sample makes a brief appearance as well. Also, special thanks go to avaris for the title."
This one's pretty hottastic, and all the judges could really critique were the relatively static dynamics; everything else is spot-on, and might be Greg's best work yet. Granted, he's only got two other mixes on the site, but both of them are excellent as well. JJT writes:
"i'm still in love with that piano segue. there is plenty of personalization going on here, while still keeping Ocean Palace at the heart of the arrangement. in that sense, this is textbook OCR. i also have respect for just about anyone who can write a decent bassline. production does the job for me. i can hear everything i'm supposed to hear clearly enough.
blah blah blah, yes."
Four pretty easy blah-blah-blah yesses from the panel; Audix has major skills and pairs them up with a respect for both arrangement and variety. We've had some absolutely fantastic mixes lately, and this one is no exception; I strongly recommend you all aqueously transgress as soon as humanly possible.

Undersea Palace is one of my favorites from the game, and this epic ReMix more than makes it justice!
While I listen to this, I can't help but imagine a battle at the Undersea Palace in [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrono_Resurrection"]Chrono Resurrection[/URL], if the project hadn't been forced to stop by Square-Enix. :cry:

I love the "flavor" of guitar used in this piece. The piano also added a lot of emotional flow to contrast the upbeat slammin' side of the track - I love tracks that can go to two extremes of a sound spectrum without assassinating the song in the process.
My only complaint would have to be the static fuzz transition at 3:44 to 3:47. It gave me shivers up my spine a little the first time I heard it, and it still rings as a little brittle to my ears. Could just be me, and it's only a small 3 seconds of the entire track anyways, nothin' big.

Regardless, this track is completely bangin'. Excellent expansion via piano, and the soundscape is great. I'm loving that lead sound, and the drums are super strong. Excellent interpretation; those horns are great.
pft, nothing bad to say about this one; maybe a bit too much reverb, but i'd be stretching there. Amazingly creative and highly recommended.

Also, I'm not crazy about the lead instrument choice at around 3:20.
The bass is awesome, and I like the use of strings, they really create a nice tension in the piece.
Not my favorite Ocean Palace mix, but enjoyable and worth listening to more than once.
