  1. I'm liking this. Sure the sample quality in parts could be a bit better, but it doesn't ruin the overall enjoyment of the song for me. Plus its not at all what I expected to hear when downloading a song by goat.
  2. Are the bagpipes real? My Lord it sounds that way! I simply cannot listen to this song without having the speakers up loud. The quality is simply breathtaking. At :46 when it gets loud, its so powerful. This is easily a song I could play for someone who doesn't listen to game music and they would appreciate it. The use of samples (if they aren't the real thing) is flawless. A lot of people could write notes and slap a sample on it, add reverb and submit... but it takes real skill to make it sould like the real thing like this, and then even more skill to make that sound this incredible. 5 out of 5 Nice Work Guys! Oh, and I'm Irish, so I'm required to call you a Scottish bastard... you Scottish bastard.
  3. I can say why I don't like fade out endings personally. When you go to a concert, if the song the band is playing has a fade out ending on the album, it gets a real ending in concert... its not like the sound guy is going to just slowly lower the master volume controls at the end of the song right? So I guess for me, even on synthesized music, its a hold over from that. However here I must say that a fade out ending worked well. Malcos... Super Hang On... SO FREAKING HAPPY! I've been seriously contemplating a Super Hang On mix myself lately, so I've been listening to the gyms a lot. That makes me appreciate this all the more. The hip hop style with a laid back feel is incredible. This is going to get a lot of playing time in my Winamp guarenteed.
  4. Yeah... my bandwidth ran out because a lot of people were downloading Spawns of the Great Pumpkin. I switched it to my other Yahoo Group now though so it should be fine.
  5. I see how they could do that to the one from the Photos section since they add all kinds of numbers and letters to the end of the filename... so that big picture of Fernandez might go away. But I know that if you have it in the Files section they don't change the location because I've linked to my songs that are located there more than once. However if you see a X in my sig then... d'oh, you're right. So if you do, again I'd like to know. Thanks.
  6. Eureka! Now, for your info, that pic is from my Yahoo Group. It turns out that with Yahoo groups you don't have to use the .txt trick at all. the code for what I did there was... [img=http://groups.yahoo.com/group/reelmojo/files/Spawns.gif] [url]http://groups.yahoo.com/group/reelmojo/files/Spawns.gif[/url] [img=http://groups.yahoo.com/group/reelmojo/files/Spawns.txt] [url]http://groups.yahoo.com/group/reelmojo/files/Spawns.txt[/url] As you can see, the first one was the only one that worked. So with Yahoo Groups, just do it like any normal picture from any other website. This works whether its in the Files section (like the pic above), or the Photos section (like the pic below). However I must add, that if any of the above are Xs please tell me as I have heard of it working sometimes for the person who posted it and not for anyone else. Turning my stupid little test into info for the masses!
  7. I'm having trouble, so I'm testing here... this'll be a good experiment anyway. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/reelmojo/files/Spawns.gif http://groups.yahoo.com/group/reelmojo/files/Spawns.txt
  8. I guess this was submitted now so that JAXX could go out on top. And this proves (as if it needed proving) that JAXX is and always will be one of the best. Not to ignore Dale North, who also does an excellent job here. This song is simply beautiful. Dale, keep 'em coming. JAXX, we will all surely miss you.
  9. I'm going to have to disagree with Mr. Saunders here and say that I really enjoy this mix. Sure, I'm already a big fan of Megaman 8's soundtrack, so maybe I'm a little biased. I think its got a very cold feeling to it and does the original justice. I'm not sure what the "You haven't lost your touch" sample has to do with Megaman, or Frostman, but it still works nicely. Nice work DJ Chako.
  10. I finally downloaded this for the first time tonight... and sweet Lord this is amazing! I was talking to BigShot on AIM at the time and I believe my exact words were "holy crap this is good!" I don't think I can improve upon my intial review now either. If someone were to ask me why its so good I'd tell them to load it into Winamp and hit play... you hear that? That's why its so good... because it just is.
  11. When typing a rave reveiw its best to tell a remixer what he did that makes you like it so much. In this case I think the reason I like it so much is that its different. I'm growing tired of techno, and this gives me reason to have hope for the future of OCR. Maybe others will branch out and be different now too.
  12. When I made my OCR CD, I felt that this was the only song that could follow Game Over's "Little Mac's Confession" properly. And you know what, I was right. Whenever people listen to the CD when the Game Over song ends they're always like "that was awesome, play that again" then this starts, and they say "wait.. leave this on." So apart from the fact that Mario 2 is my favorite of the series, and apart from the fact that it also has some of my favorite VG music of all time, this would be a 5 star mix anyway.
  13. McVaffe what have you done? Everyday I'll have on a long playlist of random songs, and I'll be just minding my own business when all of a sudden BAM!... this comes on. At that point I stop what I'm doing and just listen... there's nothing else I can do really. How can a song be laid back, smooth, yet still demand attention like a 3 year old. I don't know how you do it... but I'm glad you do.
  14. LMAO! How could that be so funny, yet so true? Just today I decided that I've been neglecting the reviews forum for far too long and decided to post some reviews of my favorites. Once I get to one I've been playing the song on repeat so I know more what I'm talking about in the review. When I saw the thread for this one I was excited because that means I get to listen to Lightening Star! There really aren't words to describe this mix (which I guess is why Mr. Pizza made up his own), its just THAT good. All men are created equal, all songs are not. Every once in a while a song comes along that is simply perfect in every way. Sonic 1's Star Light Zone was home to such a song. It was quite possibly one of the best songs ever created. Why anyone would think they could improve upon it is beyond me... but JAXX, you've succeeded. You've proved many wrong and you've improved upon perfection. I'm not even going to put the nice work guy here, because this is better than nice work. And I think I'm only still typing so that I don't move on to another review and have to press stop for this song. Trust me, anyone who's reading this who hasn't heard it, it truly is THAT good.
  15. How could anyone forget this song from Tomb Raider??? One time I looked forever for the mp3 of this song and then realized that its on the cd of the game itself (d'oh). Anyway, I really REALLY like this mix. Its different from the original, but still stays true to the same feel. I like the empty cavernous feel the beginning has, like I can picture Lara walking through the Cistern after the water was drained and little drops are still falling around her here and there... I guess there's only one way to say it... NICE WORK!
  16. Wow. I can't imagine the time and effort it took to learn all the parts of this on the guitar. I had a whole long post written... then my computer crashed... so I'll just say this: excellent guitar playing + cool and original cell phone part = awesome remix.
  17. Nobody does it like JAXX. And no, this shouldn't be any longer, its perfect the way it is. If you ask me, it kinda sounds like Sum 41 is playing.
  18. Great mix of one of the best ending themes of all time. I had this before it was posted or else I would have reviewed it earlier. I can just picture the SoR2 gang chillin' in the helicopter ride home after a long day of beating the crap out of a thousand random punks to get to Mr. X. Anyway... great song.
  19. Newfie, it sounds like someone is really playing because someone really is! If I'm not mistaken JAXX uses a mixture of live and programmed sounds, so its not all live, but some of it is. Anyhow, awesome, just awesome mix. Sound quality is excellent. You can tell the original is in there, but this is a far cry from the soft soothing sounds of Far Promise. This is more of a run around with fists flying in the mosh pit kinda sound. While many of the rest of the RD flood are great, this one takes the biggest risks, and man does it pay off. Everyone download it... now!
  20. First... call me a dumbass. Second, when I import a midi and try to play it back... I get no sound at all. It doesn't seem to matter what I click... I know I know, I'm new to this though. Any help would be appreciated.
  21. As soon as I saw this topic I thought of Snake Rattle N' Roll, and I thought of how I never did beat it because it was so hard to follow that damned foot around in a square as it took no damage from you unless you hit it an ungodly amout of time in a row... then I saw someone already said that. I'm glad I'm not the only one who remember's the game. EDIT: Picture in the quote didn't work anyway, so its gone now.
  22. The original is a great tune, this is for lack of a better vocabulary, a great tune. The first time it changed to the NES sounding part my jaw dropped, and then later it reverted to the NES cound again and my jaw hit the floor. Its amazing how well that sounds in the midst of everything else. Great great stuff.
