  1. When I saw another SoE arrangement by Shnabubula up on the page, I threw my hands up in excitement. Very happy me. The song is amazing, and perhaps even more so than usual - they're always fantastic, but this stands out.
  2. Me like. The arrangement isn't gaudy or show-offish, which is the biggest problem I have with the majority of piano pieces and guitar pieces, and with both together, I would have expected some musicianship masturbation odyssey thing. But nope. Also, the tone on the piano is making me feel all melty. In a good way.
  3. Fantastic work. Dhsu and Mustin, you two are excellent together.
  4. Gorgonian! I saw your name on the front page and was like, "YES!" You were easily one of the (if not the singular) most promising orchestral arranger back on VGMix2, so it is incredibly exciting to see that you've continued your great arrangements. That said, this is an exceptional piece. I feel like it really managed to avoid a lot of the cliches that most VG orchestral arrangements are prone to, which is a huge plus in my book. I think what really does it for me is that you managed to get a very full sound here - phenomenal orchestration. In fact, if you wouldn't mind, I'd love to see a copy of the score. Please, don't ever stop arranging/writing music. And please, submit more stuff to OCR so that we can all enjoy it!
  5. Another Soundscape is clearly one of the finest artists on this site. The production on this is flawless.
  6. It's sloppy in a few places, but certainly nothing extreme. As a whole, this is a fantastic take on the source material - they take the melodies and make them sound like they were always supposed to be jazz. Very impressive. I do agree that there's a bit too much solo wankery, though, and SuperBuckJazz did do the same thing (but better). BUT I think that should be a challenge rather than a criticism - if this group keeps it up, I fully believe that they will far exceed anyone's expectations.
  7. This song would not be half as good with pitched percussion or melody of any kind. Just my two cents.
  8. Too repetitive my butt. This is fantastic work - precisely what I have been waiting to hear on this site for a long, long time. Best piece in months - maybe even a year. Okay, okay, perhaps the best piece here period. Maybe. It's definitely up there. And wouldn't you know it? It almost got shot down.
  9. The piece is very good as a whole. I feel that the FF8 portions clash quite a bit and I did not like the sound of the heavily flanged chanting. The use of the "classical" instruments also kinda took away from what seemed to be the intended feel of the piece. But those don't overshadow the clever arrangement and general excellence of this mix.
  10. Hm. May just be the synth (and maybe even the beats), but this reminds me a bit of the first track on Ratatat's self-titled album. Very interesting remix and well made.
  11. To hell with the criticism being leveled against this remix. It's creative, interesting, and just damn good. Those animal noises and stuff? Very nice touch. "Funky chords" is a very appropriate description, though not because they're weird. Those chords drive the piece forward and lock it into a nice groove. I actually regret that he didn't develop everything a bit more. The whole thing reminds me of Shpongle for some reason, and if it had continued in the direction it was going, I imagine that it would have been pretty obvious. I wish it had. That's the flaw with this song - it cuts off right as it gets into a really nice groove. Everything felt like an intro once you get to that point, but then you only get a moment with it. OCR needs more stuff like this.
