Recommended Posts

BGC. One of my favorite artists here at OCR. This guy never fails to amaze me. If samus lacked "caped flight", you my friend, just gave it to her with this song. hats off and much thanks for this. You badass.

This is one of my fave tracks in the project. Jimmy's professionalism really shows here...it's a polished, pitch-perfect mix. Awesome.

I for one really enjoy this one. It makes for a different take on the uses of the themes that comes out feeling very natural. Being one of my favorite themes, it has been done great justice.

Only complaint is the overpowering bass between 1:29 and 2:05, but maybe that's just my headphones.

...Badass. The whole thing is just great. The build up to 1:10 is perfect, and once it kicks in I just have to close my eyes and soak it up. I can certainly hear the influence of the intro track for Relics of the Chozo, but honestly I think BGC has taken that to a whole new level.

That build-up was tense and suspenseful, which worked really well for breaking into the theme of Samus. I actually regret never having played Metroid (I'll be working on correcting that soon enough), but I'm sure that if I had played this before, this would just enhance everything that I would have loved about it. It just has the level of quality that makes me think that these themes have been kicked up a notch, because they have.

This is probably THE remix that got me on OCR. The builds are perfect, the choirs are fancy and very Metroid-y, and the guitars are just kickin’. The outro is much the same as the intro, which won’t work well for every song but I think it helps here. The small differences (e.g. lighter percussion, more choirs) help avoid repetitiveness, I suppose. I honestly can’t think of a single thing I’d change. But then, BGC is a pro.
