Well, first off, kudos for the punny mix title, which mashes up the source title with MAGFest regulars TPIH in style. Tony's Serious Monkey Business track is just over three minutes of heavy-hitting metal that expands on the original & makes it bleed pure guitar - he writes:
"Arranging this song was a bit different, because there really wasn’t much for me to go off of. The source stays around a central theme pretty heavily and I had to add a bit of original work just so the song wasn’t ridiculously short."
Vinnie summed this one up well:
"Arrangement-wise and production-wise, it's hard to find fault with this. Hard-hitting, dynamic, clean, great performance - pretty much everything one could hope for in a guitar+synth arrangement. I'm not even that big a fan of the original track, but this really kicks life into it. The first listen through I wasn't picking up all the source usage, and you've got some chunks of this that are original (that kick ass, btw), but upon closer listen you're definitely over the bar. Keep bringing rock to the masses, Tony."
Synth parts themselves are really well-written, but balanced beneath the guitars so as not to stand out; CHz noted that at certain points, like the solo around 2'08", it would have been nice if they'd been brought up a bit, if only to better appreciate the part writing, which is badass. It's sorta cosmically unfair that guitar powerhouses are throwing more & better synth solos into their jams, covering the guitar hero AND synth hero roles simultaneously, but all's fair in love and ReMixing, and if the result is tracks like this, it can't be a bad thing. Fantastic stuff from Tony that made a great addition to the album!
