doing a song-by-song analysis.
Take on Me: Very nice cover of an awesome song, it fits well with the chiptune style. However whenever I hear it I think of the Reel Big Fish cover.
Fireflies: Another good source that fits chiptune. This song is one of the few pop songs I actually like nowadays, so props for doing it. I like some of the different effects used.
Uptown Girl: I dont know the source but it seems quite cheery and all. I like choice of sounds. They seem to fit the aesthetic.
2 Minutes to Midnight: Literally my favorite Iron Maiden song. I got -so- excited when I saw this on the tracklist. The sounds choice was perfect and the slight arrangement there was awesomely done. One of my favorites.
Together in Electric Dreams: Very nice choppy track with a very uplifting feel. I like this one.
Jessie's Girl: I lol'd when I saw this. Not quite the best song to convert to chiptune, but it works well enough and I have enough fun listening to it.
Everybody Wants to Rule the World: Fuck yea, Tears for Fears. This is a very dirty sounding (at least to me with the sound choices) track that really does wonders with the melody. If youre still doing requests, I would really like Shout.
Sylvia: I dont know the source (alhough this is the badn that made Hocus Pocus right?) but I like the fast, somehow shmup-sounding aesthetic and the gleeful direction it takes. Oh, Hocus Pocus would also be a good choice for the next album I think.
MadNes: Sounds like a mad NES lol. Anyway, nice stuff going on. Sort of reminds me of the OST of some modern games that boast "retro" soundtracks.
Clash of the Titans: Sounds sort of epic in a final boss sort of way. A bit repetive, but its short.
Dunk the duck: Wasnt this from sort of weird Duck Hunt project from VGMix? It sounds like Duck Hunt OST and it uses some sounds from the game so I can only assume that it is. Anyway I like the fast pace it sets as if youve already startled the ducks and are shooting them down out of glee.
Protoman Theme: Very straight-forward remake of a great theme from MM5. Id imagine if MM5 was on Wily Wars for the Genesis it would sound like this.
Route 225: I havent played my Diamond in a while, but I sort of recognize the source a little. Its a very nice driving track, and I just -love- that bassline.
Sonic Rage: This is also a VGM-sounding track. It does sort of sound like a song from a Sonic game. Unless it already was and this a remix or something. I dont remember every track in the series.
Shoot Em Down: This also sounds like a track on the Genesis (Then again why am I suprised - this is a chiptune album). I like the dynamic feeling hte song has and it has some nice harmony too.
Beyond the Realms of Time and Space: adn the third of these 3 Genesis-sounding tracks is very chill, which is a nice change of pace from most of the album. Its got some nice trills in there alongside its soothing melodies.
Im in ur green hill, eatin ur mushrooms: Its not quite as insane as Dueling Consoles, but what can I say, its got some great sources and as much as love your remixes, Protodome is fucking amazing. You two must have had a lot of fun with this.
I await whatever you have for your next album. I trust the source tracks will be just as good and the track quality just as great.
