"It's been a while since I subbed a track. 2 months, my first sub this year even. I bet you judges all think you got it easy. BUT YOU'RE WRONG, WILLROCK IS BACK IN BUSINESS AND READY TO INVADE YOUR INBOX WITH CRAPPY REMIXES.
Anyway, this is another project track - yes a project track, make sure this goes in the project post queue - for the pokemon project. Vig rejoice. So, this remix has been in the works forever, from the time I did mountain of dreams and snowboardin sonic, mainly because when I started this I was a noob that couldn't play guitar, or record one anyway. So... I asked fishy, he said yeah, and I waited forever and it didn't happen, simply because fishy was too busy it seemed, which was a shame, because fishy rocks.
So, I decided to record guitars myself. Hope you guys dig this one, it's one of my more experimental tracks in terms of arrangement, has some of my most crazy soloing in any of my remixes, and has a cool pikachu segment at the end ;)"
Cain, you miserable bastard, look what you did... you were so busy that Will went and recorded his own guitar bits, which... actually sound pretty good, to me. Looks like it worked out for the best, and sometimes situations like these result in one expanding one's own horizons; as a tangent, I waited for outside help for a long time back when I was first learning PHP & MySQL and wanting to improve OCR, and the only reason it ever happened was because I went ahead and did everything myself. Which is not to poop on collabs - they can definitely result in tracks greater than the sum of their parts, to be sure - just sayin' there's also merit to takin' care of business personally.

"I still think the Pokémon soundtracks are bloody brilliant. Bias aside though, this certainly walks the not-so-well-formulated source line. Since it's roughly 50% AND I think how you handled the source was very nice I'm cooled with that. Nice solos too! Production was above the bar but like OA said the drums were a bit of a weak spot."
If Mattias is cooled with it, then so am I! The panel's reigning (and sole) Swede is currently enjoying his first visit to the US of A out in San Fran for GDC, w/ Danny B and BGC and Josh Whelchel, and you probably wish you were there. Not as much a fan of the POKEMANZ is Jesse Taub, resident "Young Curmudgeon" and traitor to the East Coast, who adds:
"I barely hear the pokemon theme in this track. That must be why I like it so much. The high point for me is definitely the lead sequencing. Your sound and writing is very reminiscent of Protricity. This song is so 80's. Epic, to be sure."
Great stuff from WillRock; a little on the liberal side, but source is still there, and dem's sum crazee solos, widdout question.
