OCR01702 - Mega Man 2 "Nuclear Flash"

Recommended Posts

highly enjoyable piece of work.

love the super fighting robot quote.

the most impressive thing in here is the amount of variation and how smoothly transistions between sections are. great blend of your salad and dressing in this very satisfying take on flashman.

A really entertaining and fun remix! It simply takes the original and has all kinds of creative fun with it. I like the overall BALLS in this one, especially in the really fast-paced parts. And yeah, the surfguitar carries maybe even bigger balls than the orchestra+guitar combo - awesome. Maybe not one of the most memorable tracks in OCR, but still a great, playful and most of all fun remix.

my only complaint would be there are too many breaks for my liking...seems like every section has a break down.

but still really , really good,

you guys never cease to amaze me

It felt like there were a lot of really good ideas, and yet it just didn't happen. The whole piece felt... eh. It's just good ideas.

EDIT: I'm sorry for not offering more constructive feedback. You deserved more than the useless crap I said above.

All these crazy genres kind of reminds me of Star Salzman's Black Wind Rising.

And there is a dang surf guitar and you include it and it doesn't like break the remix down! It doesn't disrupt the flow of the remix and I think that is what makes it, and this mix, so awesome

Freakin' nice Remix!! :D

I just listened to it 3 times in a row, and there's a collegue of mine who looks at me in a weird way and asks me "what are you listening to? " Apparently I had this cheeky grin while listening to the Remix :P

It's brilliant !

When I saw the names 'Sixto and Zircon' on the right side of the page, I had to check this out. It brilliantly combines and showcases each of the mixers' exceptional talents. The guitars work so well with the synths and electronic beats. Also, the surf guitar part rocked my world.

Probably the best flash man mix I've heard.

lol surf cameo, what the hell

This is just generally bitchin' in every way. If I had to make a complaint; the halftime breakdown was a little empty at first, but thats about it. I liek.

This was extremely nifty, I love and appreciate anything made or inspired by Pendulum. You really got that style down, and your additions were very appropriate and made perfect sense. Definitely into the iPod this goes, for sure.

Awesome. Although it'd be nice to see a mix posted that's a bit older in the que? Seems like this was just submitted about two months ago. ;)

Not to take anything away from the track, of course. Loved it since the first preview I heard.

Yeah, it sucks that there were so many good ideas in there. :lol:

Oh, I love these "anything goes" mixes ...

It seems that there was extra-care for not letting things become too loud and heavy.

Kudos for that. My ears thank you, and I can enjoy the ride all the more.:-P

I am loving the hell out of this Flash Man remix. The only thing that I find bad about it is that it doesn't have the other seven MM2 Robot Master songs ReMix'd to go with it. *hint hint*

This is one of the better Flashman remixes I've heard. All the transitions are just right. Especially the one around 2:10. The one at 2:45 is real nice too.

Fantastic collaboration.

"Sixto," "zircon," "Pendulum," and "surf rock" all had me expecting something spectacular, and whaddya know--the buzzwords came through! Very obviously influenced by Pendulum, but very zircon-ish too. Sixto's guitars are excellent as usual. It's rare I can find a song that I can't just nitpick at, but this song would probably be one of those "perfect-in-my-opinion" songs. Excellent job, this has gone straight onto my Juke.

Yes, it does suck. Lots of good ideas, poor execution. It was more like a "ta da! Here's a weird blend of genres that we are hoping will make this song good!" sort of thing instead of a "ta da! Here's a really good track that just so happens to combine a bunch of genres!" sort of thing.

Not that the song was terrible or anything. It just sounds like an experiment in genre combining that didn't really work out.

EDIT: I apologize again, but also I want to acknowledge that @Liontamer was incredibly correct in calling me out on my frankly stupid comments.

I don't know what you're smoking, or if you're just tonally deficient, but this is one of the best remixes to come out of OCR this year. And I'm not just saying that because zircon's a judge. Both zircon and sixto have skills that complement each other, and this mix is no exception.

Now you're entitled to your opinion, however, I think you should listen to the remix a few more times and just listen to listen, don't listen to critique. Take some time to appreciate the mix for what it is; music.
