Man, we haven't had an OutRun ReMix since 2002... that's just indecent. Here to take us in, fix us up, and get us back on the road is LuIzA, with a badass rock/ska arrangement of 'Magical Sound Shower'. I mentioned this briefly way back in 2000 when we posted Instant Remedy's ReMix of the same source, but OutRun really was an historical moment for VGM - it made the decision of which theme to listen to front and center, presenting the user with the selection of three awesome pieces of music, while remaining firmly inside the game universe by having them be different "stations" on your Ferrari's radio. When I was like, eight, I remember thinking that was the coolest thing ever, and you know what? It holds up pretty well... it WAS one of the first times (I can remember) that the selection of VGM was emphasized so much to the casual gamer. As an additional tangent, when Video Games Live came to DC and performed at the Kennedy Center, during the montage where they do a mini-history of VGM, when they got to OutRun, I cheered really enthusiastically when no one else did, and it was awkward. Hell if I care, though; modern audiences might get rallied up more for Halo or WoW (both great scores, mind you), but I'm all about my Hiroshi.
And so this mix makes me very happy; it also made Larry and Kyle happy, since they were the ones who've been petitioning Luiza for several years to submit it here. She finally caved - ¡viva la peer pressure! - and thus, hopefully, it'll reach a few more appreciative ears. And who wouldn't appreciate wah guitar, energetic drums, and greasy organ riffs, combining for a mix of rock, punk, and ska? Love those offbeat chords at 1'20" - definitely fills in for a brass section pretty darn effectively. As with her previous collab mix from Summoning of Spirits, drums are quicker, a bit thinner, and more punk/ska than ball-crushing metal. Which, honestly, is kinda refreshing - the guitar is an extremely versatile instrument, and while I love a good metal mix, I'd still like to see classic rock, punk, and ska represented a bit more, not to mention countless other genres. Bottom line? Excellent, refreshing, energetic arrangement from one of the great classic SEGA arcade soundtracks. We're encased in almost two feet of snow at the moment, and I'm about to go out with Anna and shovel, but I'll definitely be humming this mix, and dreaming of driving my shiny, new Ferrari, cutting across four lanes of traffic, crashing into innumerable palm trees, and enjoying some fantastic music.
