OCR01242 - Donkey Kong Country "Beneath the Surface"
Baldrash replied to djpretzel's topic in ReMix Comments/Reviews...Whoa. ...Just whoa. Hell yeah. Now this is absolutely amazing. It takes a special kind of ReMix to get me to post a review, and this easily gets put into that group. Bloody amazing jazz take on the classic DKC track. I thought bLiNd and McVaffe had already perfected this song with their ReMixes, and now they're playing second fiddle to this. This is going into the rotation, immediately after I play it a couple dozen times on loop...
Kakariko Village is one of my favorite game tunes. And the intro, like the one in Mega Man 3's Needles, is good enough that it doesn't get on my nerves, no matter how many times I hear it. Definitely good enough to earn a place in the rotation.
OCR01240 - Castlevania III "Stained Glass Filth"
Baldrash replied to djpretzel's topic in ReMix Comments/ReviewsWhoa. Good stuff. My favorite part was the little bit of thunder at about 4'30". Perfect sample; I actually thought it started storming outside.
OCR01167 - Streets of Rage "Drop and Roll"
Baldrash replied to djpretzel's topic in ReMix Comments/ReviewsThis is solid stuff. I welcome any SoR ReMix with open arms, and this is a nice addition to the stable of them. Any lack of originality in the overall arrangement is balanced by the pure energy and enjoyment that can be gotten from the song. Well worth the download.
OCR01144 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III "Turtle Wave"
Baldrash replied to djpretzel's topic in ReMix Comments/ReviewsAs far as I can tell, the bassline is Mazedude's own work. Man... I must've played this game through about 50 times when I was a wee lad. One thing that never got old was the music. This does the original justice. Well done, Mazedude. Well worth the download.
OCR01125 - Astérix (NES) "Niggaz 4 Life"
Baldrash replied to djpretzel's topic in ReMix Comments/ReviewsWow... Consider me blown away. I'd tend to agree with Protricity; purely on a technical basis, this is one of the best songs on the site by a long shot. The lyrics, although they didn't have to have as much profanity, are very well done, and unless you're INCREDIBLY uptight, shouldn't offend at all. There's nothing in there that you can't potentially hear in a PG-13 movie. Overall, this one's going in the regular rotation. It's nice to see more ReMixes with vocals, and this one delivers in spades. *Sets this on loop.*
OCR01068 - Ninja Gaiden II "In the Atrium"
Baldrash replied to djpretzel's topic in ReMix Comments/ReviewsI'm duly impressed. Although I do see the qualms with the vocals at the end, the whole piece feels like a serious improvement over Tororian Love Song. Well done silent. I look forward to more.
OCR01023 - F-Zero X Expansion Kit "Beyond Lightspeed"
Baldrash replied to djpretzel's topic in ReMix Comments/ReviewsOoh... I kinda like the original that was posted, but the remaster is loads better. The drums are a smidge too high in the remaster (using my default EQ settings), but was easily fixed with a quick change to the low end. Overall, though, I like the piece a lot, and I'm always a fan of massive guitar insanity. Keep up the work.
OCR00854 - Castlevania: Circle of the Moon "Rude Awakening"
Baldrash replied to Ginnsu's topic in ReMix Comments/ReviewsThat would rock. MM6 has one of my favorite NES soundtracks.
OCR00974 - Secret of Mana "Secret of Spram (8 Bells Mix)"
Baldrash replied to djpretzel's topic in ReMix Comments/ReviewsWow. Just wow. Rarely do I like a song this much on the first listen. And although I agree the bass could be turned down a LITTLE, it's still a high-quality piece that everyone should download. *Sets it to loop.*
OCR00681 - Tecmo Cup "Razors Theme (Guts Mix)"
Baldrash replied to m68030's topic in ReMix Comments/ReviewsNice! I love the Captain Tsubasa series (which Tecmo Cup is a part of), and this turns one of my favorite NES tunes into something I can dance to. Excellent job Rayza, and thanks to Kain's Shadow for requesting it!
