"This was my Round 3 Mix for the Grand Robot Master Remix Battle, which I ultimately lost to Gecko Yamori. This mix is a slightly different style than my others - its a lot more aggressive than my previous remixes, and as a result has more energy than many of my previous remixes. I decided to take advantage of FM synthesis in this mix, and used it in a way to create more interesting and evolving timbres in my backing synths. Its an idea I haven't really tried before and it inspired some pretty crazy ideas sequencing wise.
Basically, this is easily my maddest remix yet, so if you were a fan of my more crazy moments in my earlier mixes, then give this one a listen :D"
This game's soundtrack does seem a little underrepresented relative to other games in the series, and rather solid as well, so it's good to see some love. Also, as a sidenote, would someone please peer pressure Gecko into submitting his mixes, for cryin' out loud? Right then... maddest WillRock mix yet? Let's see about that...
Yeah, sure, that works for me. And that of course means it's some pretty elaborate, tweaked electronica, with more motion & animation on synth textures, as noted, and a general fluidity and morphology that's more dynamic than ever. Filter sweeps, rise-fall arpeggiotastic leads, and plenty of modulation to go around. Shariq's GRMRB yielded some truly awesome Mega Man musics, and 2011 seems like it's going to virtually belong to the franchise, with a LOT of mixes and as many as three albums waiting in the wings. Back to the present, this might actually be WillRock's last posted mix of 2010, it's definitely one of his best, and he's had a downright ridiculous year of making mix after mix after mix, with variety, interpretation, style, and development - both within his arrangements, and across them. So congrats to WillRock on an amazing year full of quantity AND quality!

It all comes together when the awesome synth enters at 1:07, though. This is where I start to really enjoy the remix. Love the part around the 2 minute mark.

...Regardless, definitely a stellar track for an under-appreciated game. It has a great pace to it, giving just enough interludes to make the beat keep its aggressive ton meaningful. A+, my good fellow.

There's so much change in this song, so much delicious texture and overlapping of themes... people, listen to this 'losing' mix, 'cause it's a freakin' winner :)!!.

MMnB's soundtrack needs more love, even if it's just 'half-love' like here.
And hey, don't feel bad about losing to Gecko. Many a cur has stood to face him only to lose heart before his time. BE PROUD YOU WENT DOWN A MAN

The only thing I didn't care for was how the music seemed a bit "crowded" at times, with the background sound hindering the overall clarity in some areas. All things considered, I definitely like this song.

(also, great remix and stuff. You already know my thoughts on how much I love this one, I think it's the best remix you've put out for any Megaman competition, personally. Grats on the mixpost you prolific bastard!)

It's stuff like that which explains why we're not big on contests. :-P Dan's was funkalicious.
