    OCR00352 - Secret of Mana "Smooth Mana"

    Good stuff in terms of keeping the timing loose. The piano and sax samples were very weak, but the arrangement itself was well done and the bass -- though low-key -- was well executed and filled out the piece well. Another one of the older mixes where you'd love to hear a band take a stab at this arrangement and give the sound more depth. I wonder if the OC Jazz Collective would ever be interested in something like that?

    OCR00651 - Xenogears "Theme of a Sailor"

    The piano and strings lacked body, but the writing was pretty forceful. Would love to hear this done with higher-quality instrumentation to better realize the potential here. Too bad Pancake Chef disappeared; he was one of the old-school ReMixers that always merited a listen.
  18. Oh wow, yeah, I remember hearing this back in 2002 when first learning of OCR. The warbly beat was low-key yet attention grabbing, and I was surprised at how this relaxing take on "Breezy" paired with the warbles. Cool stuff by Tim that demonstrated the appeal of a community like this back in the day. Smoove.
  19. Super-dated sounding brass, but agreed that this was fun though short. Fun concept by Matt that would be cool for someone else to pick up and expand upon, if they were feeling inspired by the potential here.
  20. Ha, those opening claps and thumps are such a generi-teknoz throwback. When the theme actually kicked in around :43, it was certainly an interesting approach. Was never my cup of tea, especially because once the track got going, it was pretty repetitive and didn't have much development or dynamic contrast. I appreciate the interpretation approach, but wish this had more substance and variation behind it.

    OCR00274 - Bomberman "Chip Trip"

    I wish the percussion drove this forward better, because it was too flimsy-sounding. That said, the energy of this one has always been light-hearted and fun.
  22. Conservative, but at least offering some different instrumentation from the original. Some of the sounds were thin and dated, but many of them held up alright. Russell Cox is definitely an old-school legend, so this one didn't even scratch the surface of what he'd eventually bring to the table.
  23. I could have done without the cymbal crashes, which felt corny, but I otherwise enjoyed Tim's take here. Really captivating intro, and nice subtle usage of the wave SFX. The complete dropoff and pickup into the electric guitar synth was abrupt, so that should have been handled more smoothly. Good expansive ideas here, so while it shows its age, it's still ambitious for its day.
