I like my NiGHTS mixes how I like my tacos... Fishy. Actually, I prefer beef, and Cain is but one member of a talented platoon of mixers, led by Captain Bortz, who this year have given Sega's pedo-purple flying hero a magnificent musical tribute. I guess I just like thinking about tacos; sue me. Mr. McCormack writes:
"I quit about 5 projects a while back because I was a bit disenchanted with the process of remixing music from games I hadn't actually played. This was the only track I was working on at the time that survived the cull just because of how silly it was. I really had no idea what I was doing for much of this. Definitely a challenge to work on, featuring several places that were really not my comfort zone at the time. Definitely a Muse influence on the first half of the track. The rest in an obscure mish-mash of Satriani, Jazz, S3&K and god knows what else."
So Muse... were his muse? How symmetrical. The arrangement is indeed schizo, with some wild changeups, call-and-answer battles, and a weird blend of styles, including what sounds almost like Russian folk music, a crazy carnival, jazz wankery, rock, and prog all rolled into one. I use "wankery" as a term of endearment, of course. Director Stevo "Touch the Kids" Bortz gives good comment:
"This song is a rollercoaster ride. The source is extremely difficult to arrange, with three distinct sections that greatly vary in genre. Mr. McCormack follows suit with a tri-sectioned track that draws elements from Alt-Prog Rock and Jazz, among other influences. With top-notch production, insanely tight guitars, superbly sequenced support instruments, and likely the most insane guitar/piano-organ solo battles I've ever heard, 'She Can Has Long Ears' defies classification. This song is great for the active listener, so I politely say "shut up and enjoy the ride" to you."
Cain paneled this himself, just to see what his observant judgepeers thought; OA writes:
"I heard you are good at guitar."
"Preposterous, fish don't have fingers, and therefore cannot play a guitar."
They'll be here all week at the Tropicana. Pensive insights aside, this track gave Lucid Dreaming a bit of the good old crazy, which juxtaposed nicely against the dominant thread of happy, flying-with-pants wonderment. My only nitpick was that, from a mastering perspective, it seemed like the very high end was a bit muted, and it could have been opened up a bit more for an airier sound. That's an extreme nitpick, though - I just didn't want all this praise to go to Cain's head, so I had to mention something. Great, more eclectic work from Fishy that still upholds his excellent production & performance standards!
