From newcomer Rukunetsu comes our first ReMix of Lightening Force - more commonly known as Thunder Force IV - in over a decade. Not a lot of SHMUP love lately in general, so great to see that, and of course these Genesis shooters had some rockin' tunage that deserves more attention. Sweet phased electric piano intro gains bass & bells and a nice sliced transition into a heavy late-80s/early-90s dance groove; OA writes:
"The arrangement here is a cool shift in sound, giving it a sortof nostalgic vibe with the epiano and sampled bits. I don't feel the structure or a lot of other things were really altered, though there are some distinct transitions and such that were added. The beats are good and varied, and the sound is balanced, but i feel there is a lot of needless repetition and identical sections...The upsides are pretty apparent though, it has a very 'official arrange' feel to it, and the song is engaging despite the repetition."
"This is a fun adaption of the original. There's a lot of nice textures here, and the approach overall is nicely personalized. I agree with Andrew that things do feel a bit repetitious overall, but I also agree that it's not to a point where it dips below the bar."
The original source has a lot of delayed elements and feels a bit floatier, whereas I think Rukunetsu's done a good job of making something a little more anchored & accessible, while maintaining the overall vibe. There's room for improvement on mixing/EQ, as WillRock noted the lows are mostly coming from the drums and things could be opened up a bit more, but it's a solid debut that takes a lesser-known source and creatively makes it more approachable, so props there, and hope to hear more in the future!
