  1. Dang... I can't believe I almost missed this treasure. It makes me feel peppy and chilled at the same time. And that's a wonderful paradox to feel. OK, I need to make sure I don't miss any more awesome songs. (As Sonic always said, I need to do: "Come on! Step it up!")

    OCRA-0058 - Apex 2016: I Got Next

    OK, I know this album is at least two years old at this point, but this is my first time hearing it. (I have a really long backlog of remixes and albums I'm trying to get through. So we're doing this now.) Now, for all of the good things I can say about this album, the one I feel the overwhelming need to say is: "YUNGTOWN! Yeah! Sub2Yungtown!" Seriously, though. Thank you for starting this off with the person who is probably the only rapper in the world that I actually like. As for everything else in here, I assume nobody is exactly waiting for an in-depth review on a two-year-old album, so I'm only going to say, stellar job to you all. There wasn't a song in here that I disliked, and I found myself head bopping along with these. Granted, that could be because I'm sleep-deprived and feel like doing that more than normal, but still. Great jorb, everybody.

    OCR03746 - Chrono Trigger "Elements of Time"

    I don't come on here often enough to tell people how much I like their remixes. At least I'm doing it now. ...That not good enough on its own? Heh. Fine. I can't pretend like I have the technical expertise to explain why this one resonates with me so much; it just does. I love the choices of instrumentation, I love how mellow it is most of the time, and I love how this gives me feelings like I had when I played Chrono Trigger the first time, except somehow more prominent. Me hace sentir tal como estoy en casa. Lovely piece of work! P.S. Thank you for showing me yet another YouTube channel I should subscribe to; I want to hear more of this kind of thing.

    OCR03694 - Undertale "The Spectral Mire"

    This is definitely what I was in the mood for today. I only had one thought about this I wanted to express right now: I love the inclusions of the in-game text and conversations you overhear from the Echo Flowers. At first, I found myself wishing those lines were a little bit louder, because you can't totally make out everything they are saying. (For instance, I only knew that the conversation about two monsters' wish to climb Mt. Ebott is in there because I caught a few key phrases, and I remember that part especially well from the game.) But as I kept listening, I realized how fitting it is that those are in the background, and hard to hear. With those voices behind the music, it creates the impression that you are hearing nothing but echoes, or the whispering voices of ghosts. So, the quiet voices truly do give this song a spectral feeling. And putting this in a metal arrangement is probably the best expression of "mire" I can think of. "Spectral Mire." Ingenious! OK, that's all from me. I'm going to go download this now. Hasta luego.
  5. I don't know what's more surprising: the fact that I remembered this game well enough to think of looking up remixes for it, or the fact that someone else remembered this game well enough to actually create a remix for it. Not to mention, there's the fact that I still recognize a song that I last heard when my age was a single-digit number. This remix may be subtle and ambient, but something about it commands my attention. It's like I can be in the middle of doing something, and when this song starts playing, I'll want to stop and listen more closely. (I guess I shouldn't listen to this while operating heavy machinery, then.) I wish I had the technical expertise to say why I like this so much. But, as it is, that's all I can really say: love it.
  6. I'm just going to re-post the comment I left on the YouTube video for this song: "This is the kind of song I would play to my kids to put them to sleep. You know, if I played the violin. And if I had kids. "Not only is this a beautiful piece of music, but it's imaginative, too; for all the times I've heard Gerudo Valley arranged to sound upbeat, intense, epic, or overwhelmingly active, I think this is the first time I've ever heard someone remix Gerudo Valley into something mellow and calming. This actually does feel like something that would help someone sleep. "I love it. I'm going to go download this now."
  7. Probably not the intended effect, but listening to this is making me laugh almost non-stop. Maybe it's reading the descriptions and comments. Or maybe it's because I recognize those voice clips from every time I've..., you know what? Right now I don't want to use any verb you would use to describe what you do to Rosalina in Smash Bros. It feels... weird. Oh, and I am so glad I was wearing headphones when I listened to this. I wouldn't want anyone to walk into the room and wonder what exactly was going on in here. Now, with all that said, this is a pretty good jazz piece, and I like it. There. That's all I needed to say. That wasn't so hard. (*Sigh.* It feels like everything I say here runs the risk of becoming an innuendo.)
  8. I'm no hater of vocal remixes, but I'll admit that when I come across one, I often click "play" and expect that I'm not going to like it. And then I was pleasantly surprised by this today. It's upbeat, happy, has a bit of melancholy in the story the lyrics tell, and it's catchy, the more times you listen to it. As people have already said, this song has a "summery" feel to it. Perfect for me to listen to while the air is freezing, and I am surrounded by mounds of snow. (Ha. Good times.)

    OCR03641 - Chrono Trigger "Zeal Breeze"

    I remember that for most of the time that I ever walked around the Kingdom of Zeal, I always felt a little uneasy. It was like I somehow knew, even from the moment I set foot in it for the first time, that something was off about the place. (And of course, as the game goes on, you find out just how "off" a lot of things are.) Maybe it's the uncommon opinion, but I felt that same quality present in the original "Corridor of Time" theme. So even though the music in the original soundtrack is meant to be beautiful and calm, I always found that it made me feel just a little bit on edge the whole time. Anyway. As I listen to this, it reminds me of that one line that an NPC in Kajar says to you: "Your power... differs from ours. It's difficult to describe, but in you I sense a strange... kindness." Yeah. Something about the gentler instrumentation, the Eastern-sounding quality, the smoother articulations... maybe it's just my layman's interpretation, but I find it comes across as "kinder." And so, I like this almost more than the original. I think it's a beautiful piece of work.
  10. I remember when I first came across this song, about 10 years ago, on this newly-popular website called YouTube. It was one of the first video game remixes that truly mesmerized me. I've listened to it fairly consistently over all those years, and I'm still not tired of hearing it. The brass parts make it feel heroic, the harp parts give it a mystical quality, and every part of this song feels inspiring. Exactly as Legend of Zelda music should be. ¡Bien maravilloso!
