  1. This is SO CLOSE to being a good remix, even a great one! But it is stopped dead in its tracks by some glaring flaws. What's with the engineering on this one? It's like the artist's six year old nephew came in and starting twisting the volume knob on the tracks just to be funny. We have these strong melodies starting and then suddenly dropping off into quiet solitude. And elsewhere in the song it does the opposite.
  2. This is a beautiful piece, but that sound effect of an old office phone ringing really took me out of it. The muted walla works for the tone, but those "public place" sounds open with a very distracting phone ring that just takes me out of the groove.
  3. "Do you have any idea how hard it is to escape from Monkey Island?" "No, how did you ESCAPE FROM MONKEY ISLANDTM?"
  4. The melody in the first part sounds a LOT like the stage 1 music from Journey to Silius. Maybe someone needs to do a mashup of those two.
  5. This is good, but it also is showing its age. Nearly twenty years later, I'd love to hear this one remade with some more modern sound-fonts (is that the right term?) that sound almost identical to a real orchestra.
  6. I really like the - I guess I would call it the "arrangement." But I don't like the instruments. It's a great tune, and I love the way it explores the melodies and moves through various "feels" behind those melodies. But about half of these chiptune sounds just come out really poorly and are grating to my ears. I'd love to hear this as a different version that replaces the instruments.
  7. I have a bit of mixed feelings for this. The original has dancing ingrained into me so much that it feels like a travesty to be playing the song at this slower pace. This remix does what a remix should do though, and so it's hard to say that it is "bad" because of that. It's just me, I guess; I can't enjoy it like I should because the pace is killing me.
  8. Normally I hate it when remixes change the melody. But this song, when it does, actually does sound interesting and enjoyable.
  9. It's been years, and I've still never seen anyone make a remix even close to how good this is. Where did AmIEvil go? He made the best remixes...
  10. This one gets points for having one of the best names for a remix ever.
  11. Wow, this one is fantastic! It fits the mood of the game so perfectly, and it's just a blast to listen to!
  12. I like it, but it is really quiet, which means I can't put it in my playlist.
  13. I always felt that the song held so much more power with the title translated as "The Treasure which Cannot be Stolen." Great rendition of such a beautiful song!
  14. This is an atrocity. The original is such a beautiful song, and it has an outstanding vocal. But this remix runs that voice through a horrendous chopping filter. Look, there are ways to add a "glitching" effect that sound really cool, fun, and interesting. But you can't just run some glitching filter on it and call it a day. And the more "glitching" one adds, the more careful one must be with it. But this is half the song made to sound like something is wrong with your internet connection, completely destroying a beautiful original piece.
  15. Did they slip a little piece from "Ghost Riders in the Sky" in there?
  16. The beautiful spaceships, the beautiful spaceships! It all comes down to the size of your wing-tips!
  17. This barely sounds different than a recording someone made of a midi of the original song. It sounds so close to the original that I would rather just listen to the original. It was a fine remix back in the day, but it just doesn't hold up to modern standards. This could be a really sweet remix if they revised it with a better sound font; up the sound quality a bit...
  18. This may be my favorite remix from the entire Street Fighter franchise.
  19. This was really cool at first but it lost me somewhere in the middle; it stopped being as much fun to listen to.
