  1. I just saw a thread about this on a forum I go to. A shame that Xtreme 1 & 2 aren't represented, especially considering I figured MHX was just a remake of the original with remixed music. Never actually played it since I didn't have a PSP.
  2. Eh, I was never really a fan of Hedgehog Heaven; it's a good album, but lots of synth and techno isn't my thing. That's why I loved Project Chaos: I love metal and guitars and orchestra. SnappleMan, Hetcenus and Kanjika made that album worth every listen to me. <3 Coherency doesn't matter much when the music is that good. >.>
  3. Definitely looking forward to listening to it once it's finally released. I know it won't be as good as Project Chaos, but it can darn well try. ;D
  4. Yeah, I think the biggest thing to take away from this album is that too much techno is not a good thing. This is a great album, except for "Sonikku, Ganbatte!" by mario and "Super Sonic Ska" by Blak Omen. Too many sound effects and both of them sound like they were simply ripped from the game and then spruced up a bit. My favorites are "High Above the Sky" and "Is This the End?" "Bring in the Machine" could have been so much better with a guitar. Over all: Project Chaos > Hedgehog Heaven. >.>
  5. Just wanted to let everyone know, the Project Chaos site is down, for whatever reason. Maybe someone forgot to pay the bill. >.>
  6. I definitely like it. Like the review says, it's something you can relax to. But one thing I wanted to mention to one of the reviewers, Oji: Richard Jacques did the Saturn version of Sonic 3D Blast; Jun Senoue did the Genesis version. Otherwise, good stuff.
  7. Yeah, judging from the music and the dashing, this looks to be a Sonic Rush 3, but on a real console. I personally hate the way Sonic's music has gone... it went from awesome up to Sonic 3 & Knuckles with its stage-themed music, to good with Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, and partially Heroes with rock (Shadow the Hedgehog was alright in terms of music,) and the Sonic Advance games did justice. But ever since Rush and Rush Adventure came out, Sega's been leaning the 2D games' music towards a pop-ish, techno area that I personally don't like. Unleashed looks to be the same. Also, from the brief looks of the stages, it'll be the Rush layout, also... You're generally going so fast you won't have time to admire the scenery, or watch where you're going... <insert random spike pit or pit hole here> That's another thing. The original Sonic games gave you the option of slowing down in the level and taking your time (To an extent,) or speeding through. Now it's all about one or the other. If it doesn't have an island/beach level, a water level, a fire level and an ice level, I can't consider it a Sonic game. >.>
  8. I had a listen, and this honestly would have sounded right at home with Hedgehog Heaven. (Although, you have to give it up for analoq's "Oil Spill". Maybe it's because my headphones have awesome bass, but I like this song. Granted, it is a tad repetitive, and it is a little close to a source, even if it's an Arabian spin off. Come on, you two did amazing work. Sadorf with "Aquatic Project" (And it's subsequent follow-up, Aquatic Project Edit 2, >.>) from Hedgehog Heaven and GeckoYamori with "Elevator Music" from Project Chaos (Awesome, might I add.) This song is good, but you can spice it up just a little bit. I'm going to have to give you the thumbs down on this one.
  9. While I'm not a Remixer in any way (So you don't technically have to listen to me,) I agree with Rozovian in that it really has no... BAM in it, for lack of a better term. I've always wondered why Project Chaos never had an Invinciblity theme, and I think it's time someone added one. Anyways, what you have going is really good. If you have any experience with guitars, especially electric, you could totally make this into a bad ass song. Maybe play with the tempo a bit, see if you can add a bit of a speed element into it... after all, when you're invincible, you wanna race through stuff as fast as you can. (Maybe you can play into the fact that it's the Invincibility and Speed Shoes at the same time.) If you really want a little bit of inspiration, listen to "Sonic the Hedgehog and Knuckles", the intro to the Project Chaos album. SnappleMan does an excellent job of metal-ing up the main theme. Otherwise, as Rozovian said, this remix has a lot of potential. Keep at it.
  10. I know this is way past late, but I was wondering. Since OCR has already done projects for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles, why not do Sonic 1? It'd be a short album for sure, and most of the remixes in Sonic are for that game (Especially Green Hill). There'd be the intro, Green Hill Zone, Marble Zone, Spring Yard Zone, Labyrinth Zone, Star Light Zone, Scrap Brain Zone, Invincibility, and the ending. I'm just throwing this suggestion out there, as I have no foreseeable remixing talent. (I barely know how to use GoldWave for music editing...)
  11. Bladiator, your piano track is awesome. :3 In that vein, so are Pot Hocket's acoustic tracks. While I heard a few twangs (Say twang with a Southern, hick accent for maximum effect) on "Sleep, My Sephy" (Cute name, by the way), both that song and "Daydreaming Again" are very awesome.
  12. I have the rest for you. Here: "In the real world, things are very different. You just need to look around you. Nobody wants to die that way. People die of disease and accident. Death comes suddenly, and there is no notion of good or bad. It leaves no dramatic feeling, but great emptiness. When you lose someone you love very much, you feel this big empty space and think, 'If I had known this was coming, I would have done things differently.'" And of course, here are the lyrics for One-Winged Angel/Black Wing Metamorphosis (Only the ones in B.W.M., though, since some of the lyrics are cut. Also, if you know anything of Latin, disregard how the song pronounces some things.) "Estuans interius, ira vehementi Estuans interius, ira vehementi Sephiroth Veni, veni, venias Ne me mori facias Veni, veni, venias Ne me mori facias Veni, veni, venias (Glorioso) Ne me mori facias (Generoso)" Now, I have a question for the rest of you. Someone care to give me the lyrics to "Deliverance of the Heart"? I have a bit of that, but it's kinda hard to understand for me.
  13. This album is definitely amazing. I especially love Pot Hocket's acoustic tracks. Very nice. I only have two major gripes about the album. One is too much techno/electronica. For originally being an orchestra-based score, turning some of these songs into those genres just doesn't sound right. And the other, of course, is Black Wing Metamorphosis, the remake of One Winged Angel. It's an alright song, but not only were the vocals off (From what I can hear, they messed up the "Estuans interius, ira vehementi" and completely missed the "Sors immanis, et inannis". The rhythm for the vocals isn't very fluid either.) but the guitar solo they have is at the very end, for something like 19 seconds. If you're going to try and go for Advent: One Winged Angel, try something a bit longer.
  14. Wow. Just wow. This has to be, without a doubt, the greatest video game compilation ever. The remixes of the Hidden Palace and Sky Sanctuary Zones (The secluded Stronghold and Breathtaking Vision) are my absolute favorites. You guys should do a compilation for the original Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and 2, as a combined album. (Not as many songs, but worth a shot.) Thanks again for spending so much time on a kick ass album.
