OCR01799 - Super Mario RPG "Flubber Mountain"

Recommended Posts

I love it, from the moment the first timpani hit. Very quirky, kept me chuckling throughout with all the different bells and whistles. One of the most upbeat pieces I've heard, this'll be a favorite any day of the week (especially Monday).

This remix is awesome! The squeaks here and there throughout the song and the style in general makes me think this could have been remade for a Paper Mario game, which is a good thing in my book.

Kudos, Mazedude.

It took me a minute to figure out where this song was from but once the theme came in I caught it. What an overlooked piece of music to remix!

The instruments have a unique sound with all those sound fx added in. It's got a nice full sound even at the quieter parts.

It's fun, it's crazy, and it fits well with the original level - a madcap race with pixelly graphics from my favorite game of all time.

Is there anything Mazedude can't do?

I love that so frequently in his comments he mentions that he is always thinking of new ways to challenge himself. Major props for that, and it's something that everyone (especially myself) should give some serious thought to.

The kettle drums really drive this, and the whole track has a really fun atmosphere and the unique instrumentation makes it sound really spontaneous and lively. I love the fill-in squeaks and blats, and the constantly shifting sonic field. Instruments segue from leads to chordal parts seamlessly, and then a whole new group of instruments come in.

An aside, when I finally got to meet him at Magfest, I was starting to feel really sick and was headed to my room to lay down, so I had to cut our conversation short. Sorry if I seemed impolite, 'dude, I really wish I could have stayed and talked more. :-(

Overall an exceedingly creative mix, I love it, and I'm really excited to hear what Mazedude will do next. :-)

Yet another fine example of why I love Mazedude's work. The guy is a genius, and that is a term I toss around far too lightly, but he should feel complimented anyway.

This piece is crazy, awesome, and crazy awesome all at the same time.

Mazedude is here, as usual, to show all of us what this site is really for, givin' respect to all video game music and any genre. Always loved his stuff because of that. This is no exception, showing an amount of talent most people cannot imagine. I wouldn't be suprised if his next mix was 'Quest 64 - Spirit in da Hood' gangsta rap mix and created another wonderful masterpiece out of it (Anybody else, however... please stay away from that :)).

Great stuff.

I hate to be the only negative person here but I didn't really enjoy this remix. As far as sound goes, it sounds great, the instruments are pretty and they sound real. But it doesn't respect the original IMHO. It's a bit too "crazy" and the pitch is off in some places.

Didn't expect anyone to remix this source tune anytime soon. Leave to Mazedude to pick this quirky source and make it even quirkier. I think that it complements the folk-y vibe of the original really well, particularly the accordion lead.

I'm downloading the whole project now. Really hope it has some quality tracks that are as good as this one.

this is actually my favorite track on the site in a long time. it reminds me a little of many of the n64 Rare soundtracks (DK64, Banjo-Kazooie, DKRacing, etc.) and its throwing shit out of everywhere. It's just great and it gets me with the creativity.

I love Mazedude. I love Yoko Shimomura. And I've loved this game since I was seven years old.

With that said, this song brought back so many good memories and I thought it was extremely cute. This song is just too good not to cherish, and I thank you for making it!

Apsolutely Blown away. Went straight off to look at his other tracks too.

It manages to be ridiculously catchey and unhummable in the same motion. God knows how.
