Seems like we JUST posted Damon's Sonic 3D Blast ReMix, but that was the SATURN version, and as VGM afficionados know, the GENESIS version is a different ballgame, by different (Japanese) composers. They're BOTH good soundtracks, which makes it a peculiar case of seemingly unnecessary efforts, but the end result was more great VGM for everyone involved, plus the Genesis score is probably better-suited to the hardware. Dr. Manhattan expands his repertoire of excellent arrangements & varied source tunes with this rock jam that's got heavier, hard-rockier bits but also some lighter-hearted passages more akin to funk. It's a pretty conservative take, initially, but look to the latter bits for some excellent personalization in the form of some really fun drum fills and of course amazing work on lead guitar. One could almost get a little spoiled listening to all of Hugo's mixes and start taking all that shredding & technique for granted - he's got consistently impressive chops, with production to match. Great stuff, not much else to say!

The soloing in the second half is amazing. Before that, the song is a little conservative and uneventful. More of that soloing and less melody replication would've been nice, since clearly you can play the guitar!

Got a good beat throughout this one, especially when it opens up. Pretty straightforward as opposed to the out and open madness I've heard in other ReMixes from Dr. Manhattan, so it's a nice change up. Solid arrangement and those guitars are tight. Very nice.

Like the guitars and synths. Bass is nice. Not diggin' the drums. They seem far too sequenced sounding and aren't mixed great. They don't sound awful, but they just aren't really great either. There's a way to make fake acoustic drums sound real. Unfortunately you can tell here that it's fake, though I've noticed this a lot throughout numerous different ocremixes.

But all of that set aside, I like the idea here. I really like all the guitars and synth bells and pads and such. Real nahce. Real, real nahce.

I loved this game, had it on pc but I'm pretty sure it had the Saturn soundtrack not the Mega Drive one. Nice mix, I dig it. :)
