Super Metroid: Item Room, Item, Samus, Norfair II

Metroid: Main Theme

This remix was created for Blind's get well album. (Hope you get well soon and are back to mixing in no time, man!). Anyway, this mix was started on the Wednesday before the deadline and finished it two days later, on Friday. It's by far the quickest I've put together a full mix. This is also the most OST tunes I've used in one mix, however, I think they all incorporated well, while avoiding medley problems - mainly because 3 of the 5 mixes are either really short or just fanfares. Hope you guys enjoy.

Got some good mileage out of the various jingles to open things up. Meanwhile the rest of the arrangement was spot on. Cool take on Norfair that felt a bit more militaristic thanks to the drums but also had some grandiose writing. Would love to hear a live orchestra perform it. Cool original writing, with Metroid material occasionally woven in, from 2:26 until the finish. Strong close. Not realistic sounding, but it uses the samples fairly cohesively and the arrangement was solid.

Damn, you're a prolific mixer, Justin. I feel like I'm judging one of your songs every week. :<

This was excellent, one of the best I've heard from you. Great use of the soundscape, and the writing weaving these disparate themes together was practically seamless. Transition to the heavy Norfair beats in particular was masterful. This could have been a direct post to me.

these guys said it better than me: great use of the soundscape. one of the hardest things to do, i think, is present something that is expansive to the point that it takes over your head while you're listening. the intro of this sounds more like the theme to beastmaster than it does super metroid.

the instrumentation and the orchestration here are ridiculous. this is very well arranged.

i have to agree on the sample quality. some of the instruments do sound very thin and cheap but not in so much a defeating way. somehow you stuffed a lot of music into 3 and a half minutes. this probably should have been about twice as long but you never sounded rushed. very nicely deceptive.

Fantastic track. It's expansive, creative, and phenomenally written. I have only good things to say about this track. Fantastic tribute to a great game series. Great work, Justin!
