OCR00911 - Streets of Rage 2 "Go Back"

32 posts in this topic

First, I'll start it off with a smiley :nicework:

Great job, Gecko. I like the tempo, and the "yeah" and "woo woo woo" (whatever it is) that shows up, gives it character. Keep it up!

Last, I'll end with a smiley :)!!

I think you did a great job sequencing this one, like DJP said, this sounds like the OST redone with nice sounds, but why is it so distorted and choppy in parts? Was that how it was intended? There is a lot of clipping, and sounds a bit like when my computer can't handle a big arcade ROM and the music starts to cut out. It's a bit distracting, but everything else is great! A definately worthy SOR2 remix, and would be top notch if the distortion problem was fixed.

Just beautiful. Gecko's sid of rage was my previous 2nd fave on here (1st being badass posse, seeing a pattern here?) and this doesn't let the standards slip at all. Very nice, good character, not much I can pick up on.

No point in denying I'm a fan of the series: for Blaze, beating countless people senseless(ain't it great?) and finally, but most important, the music. This song to me seemed to be a good one to follow SID of Rage and it is (try it). Good use of sirens and all the sounds. It came together very nicely. I say enjoy this song and don't stray away from his others, new stuff is good.

What is it that makes the Little Richard "wooyeah" sampled so much? Not to say it's bad. It's just wierd that of all the sounds in the world that particular sample shows up all the time. Anyway, good remix. High energy fun! I luv pretty much all the synths. Only thing is the ending. That last chord never gets resolved. And that makes me a sad panda. Other than that all I have to say about this remix is "WOO Woo woo" "YEAH!"

Thank you Gecko! :D I loved your 'SID of Rage' mix, and this one came and backed it right up. Awesome stuff here, definately a keeper.

I prefer an earlier version of this tune. The main instrument doesn't sound so reedy in it as it does here.

Either way, it's a damn fine remix-- only I'm hanging onto version 1.0.

Let's go back. Way back into time.

The piano, the lead, and the standard, but necessary eighties vocal samples, help take this piece back to the eighties dance mix era.

I haven't played this game, nor have I heard the original music, but I love the drive of this remix (despite its distorted sound).

Eeexcellent.

"Streets of Rage 2" is my favourite game soundtrack by far, so it's always hard for me to listen to a ReMix that holds up to the original.

And I have to be honest, no SoR2 ReMix has impressed me enough to keep it :(

Yes, I am very biast. But I felt there wasn't enough that was improving upon the original. Sorry, bro.

Keep up the ReMixes, though. Obviously, people are enjoying your work.

Oh HELL yeah, this is the kind of remix that NEEDED to be done. Yuzo Koshiro's amazing melodies put into a fresh sounding, high intensity track. I think it is extremely well done and say a big freakin' thank you. What a work of art. It is complete man...end of story.

Does this remix, in the beginning anyways, remind anyone of Bomberman Hero's/64's soundtrack? I don't know why, but when I downladed this and it started playing, I had to make sure it was an SoR2 ReMix....But this mix is incredible nonetheless. Keep it up Gecko!

Not bad, it's alright. There's actually not much to compare this to on the net, cause no one's attempted to remix the 1st stage of SOR2. So i'd have to say it's a good job, BUT for personal taste i do rather have the hardrock mix version (for those of you who know SOR2 the game very well, there's an alternate version of 1st stage music in the Soundtest screen!), it's got much harder drumbeats and bass was emphasized, even on the ol' Genesis sound chip, it WAS ROCKIN!

excellent remix of "Go Straight", Gecko's sounds have impressed and its up there with his "Sid of Rage" mix. At this rate, your next endeavor should be remixing some of the Hardcore SOR3 techno tracks, which to date no one has atempted.

I like this mix. Its catchy, and funky. its a great mix to work out to. However, I also liked the original sound track. This mix is really pleasing, but i think more could have been done to make it different from the original. But all around, this is a very solid mix, great patches, and good flow.

Loud, overbearing, and still somewhat fun. The instrument (whatever it is.. my ignorant self has no clue) that comes on at the beginning is blaring and annoying, but the rest of the song as a variety of well done instruments that paint a nice picture for the original. The best parts are undeniably the vocals, which for once at a tremendous amount to the feel of the song without drowning out the other elements. 4/8

sor tracks are very difficult to remix since they are pretty intense already. i think gecko pulled it off very well, maintaining the feel yet still putting in some new stuff. i doubt it could have strayed further from the original, cause its already a lot. in my opinion, sor2 is very difficult to mix, and for gecko, he has produced yet another winner.

(wow mustin ur tough heh ;))

This is a very Funky remix I was just listening to it and it has the style of the game in it. Very good. For some of the party's I would have used another instrument but its overall very nice.

Keep it up! :D

Gecko Yamori, huh? I never listened an remix from this guy. But I know this dude in some place...

That's the first stage theme from sor2. And sorry, but it is very seemed with the original song. Except in some concepts, instruments, etc. But I'm pretty sure I liked it a lot. Enough changes to keep it interesting the whole way through. Good stuff.

This is some funky stuff, Gecko. LOVE it.

Why don't you ever submit anything anymore?

Wow. This is good stuff, and I've never seen the game. It strikes my fancy because it reminds me so much of Prodigy. It would suprise me to no end if Gecko didn't borrow themes from them.

All right! First stage music! I love the source material, and I am loving this song. Just makes me wanna get up and dance. I love the percussion, and I'm really digging the quality in sound. Definitely up there with some of my favorites.
