  1. Man, the intro to this song reminds me so much of Earth Defense Force! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_Defense_Force Sorely miss that game... Good work! -Austin Spafford
  2. Congratulations on leading such a fantastic project for another year! I have spent many hundreds of hours listening to the music of this site while working. -Austin Spafford
  3. Congratulations Dain! EDIT: And thank you for In The Dark! I think I've listened to it about four times now, and it got me to refresh my iPod for driving music. -Austin Spafford
  4. Fantastic! I keep coming back to this song when listening to my "Recent OCR" folder. I enjoy: the voice clips, the punchy strings, most of the scratches/stops, how the drums come in at 0:25, the playful sequence at 2:34, and the transition out of the "clean section at 2:10. There's definitely many other nuances that I'm unable to spot right now, but to me this song has lots of little entertaining details. The only thing that throws me off is the ending, which feels like the departing of a friend. I don't know if that means the song's too short though, since it's dangerous to drag anything out (see: Rogue Galaxy). Ziwtra, I've greatly enjoyed many of your songs, especially Downwind (http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR00805/). Keep up the great work! -Austin Spafford
  5. This song has been great to listen to while programming, and definitely has lasting appeal. I was listening to it heavily after first downloading it, but then I shifted it back as new songs became available. But after a couple of weeks, the vocals just kept getting stuck in my head, and I had to track down where I they came from. Great work, keep it up! -Austin Spafford
  6. Fantastic! To me, this song conjures up images of snow drifting past street lamps in the night. Thank you for the experience! -Austin Spafford
  7. Audacious! There are some aspects of the song that I enjoy, but as a whole I find it too nerve-racking to have it fit as something to listen to while either working or relaxing. Overall, I enjoyed the drums, but I think it was the loud warbling synth lead that drove me away. But regardless, I've generally enjoyed Adhesive Boy's previous works, and certainly look forward to getting to hear more pieces in the future! -Austin Spafford
  8. This is the sort of song that will cause me to bob side to side with a smile and closed eyes, and yes, even at work. Thank you for the fun experience! -Austin Spafford
  9. Thank you for this excellent addition! An epic introduction at 0:50. Goosebumps! The section around 1:30 reminds me quite a bit of Pillar of Salt. Awesome! I also am just amazed at the section starting at 3:35. It brings back fond memories of the Scream Tracker songs that used to dance in my headphones. Heh, and even an ending that reminds me of Gitaroo Man! Great work! -Austin Spafford
  10. I love this song. And yes, it is a tad painful with headphones, and results in people giving me strange stares (I have yet to see it, but I know they must, I know they must!); but still, this is one of the most fun songs available on this site. It's this fascinating attitude that the song takes, that makes it one of the few songs that I regularly use to try to explain to friends and family why I enjoy this site so much. David, thank you for the wonderful music! -Austin Spafford
  11. I'd just thought I'd pop my head in the door again, and reiterate that this song is a joy to listen to after all this time. Congratulations on a job well done! -Austin Spafford
  12. I've listened to every song on OCR, and this is definitely one of my favorites. This is also one of the songs, on a short list of about a dozen, that have ever made me cry. Simply put, this song is beautiful. With its haunting introduction, its comforting electronica beat, and its saddening celo; this song covers so much ground that it has always remained interesting to me. Rellik, I do certainly hope that you will make many more songs along the lines of this one, as it has been richly entertaining to listen to. -Austin Spafford
  13. I know, dead horses smell bad; and as another person who creates something that other people use, I also know that it hurts when someone says that your baby's nose is ugly. Throwing caution to the wind, I must agree with the idea that the vocals detract from the song. Part of this really struck home when I realized that I had this song stuck in my head, but that the lyrics had been mentally edited out; or if you prefer, replaced with a generic instrument. Who knows, it may be that I would just need to get used to it, such as with getting used to the lead singer's voice for Machinae Supremacy. Other than that, I love the work that has gone into this mix. I'm simply fascinated with the guitar work, and it is yet another reason I can use to justify the need for my taking a music appreciation class. I wish I could put my thoughts on it into words, but I lack the vocabulary. Overall, I do like this mix, and certainly look forward to listening to your future creative works! EDIT: Also, after listening to this song about five times while writing this post, I had a realization. It may just be me, but the lyrics seem to sound much nicer on speakers instead of headphones. Has anyone else tried alternating between headphones and speakers? (ThankPad speakers, Sony MDR-Q22LP clip-on headphones ) -Austin Spafford
  14. Great work! I wish that I was familiar with Earthbound, so that I could get a big helping of nostalgia too. -Austin Spafford
  15. I loved this song when I first heard it, and that was before I even had a chance the play the game! Oh, and the ending is especially great. Fits the game quite well. Now if I can just avoid getting kicked in the face... -Austin Spafford
