OCR01315 - Golden Sun "Sol Sanctum Guitar"

Recommended Posts

I've been dying for a golden sun remix for a while now and I've finally received it. Awesome mix, great guitar sound and I can't help but feel relaxed when I listen to it. Great job.

Pretty awesome mix - this is one of my favorite tracks from the game. It gets quiet a bit too soon though, that's probably this track's only downfall. Overall it's a great one, but relatively short. Must it only be 2:59? :(

Hey! Golden Sun was... um... forgettable! But this remix is pretty slick. The guitar has a great texture. Kind of seems like the climax comes a bit too early (at 0:46?) and then straight-forward coverage of the Sanctum theme continues until the end. Nice work though.

You should've been around for PRC 2-7. They had to remix this very theme, and they had some excellent entries, but this one would've won for sure had you entered it. It's about time we got a Golden Sun mix in here too.

Wow... I had just assumed this was from that PRC... now I need to actually hear it. :D

EDIT: Good stuff. I disagree with people who say it was too short though; I'd take too short over too repetitive anyday. I think EgM said all that he needed to in his time slot. A keeper.

I'm a huge Golden Sun fan and I think this song is awesome. It does the original tune justice. Sadly though it wasn't one of my favourite tunes in the game. Yet I do really like this piece. Hopefully we will see some of the other tunes for the game done.

I'll have to jump on the 'too short' bandwagon, too. But it's nice even though I haven't played the game. Reminds me of a whole bunch of things. Something on the order of Pink Floyd playing New Order's "Elegia". But yeah this is very Pink Floyd esque, with the use of the guitar and violin bits. Something about the overall pacing and drums gives me the same thoughts. Were you going for a PF feel at all?

Coincidence that this midday i was listening to almost the whole sountrack of the game, and replaying Sol Sanctum a few times. I must say, i don't like this one. It doesn't feel right to me. I like the original better.

Though i'd love to hear GS remixes, too bad this one slips away for me

The guitar is quite amazing. Also the panning effect with the crash in 00:45, did a good contrast. The violin is romantic. I enjoyed the beats and strings too. Piano of high quality. The excellent instruments just make this a pleasure to listen to. Lovely.

this piece has some quality moments... especially from 00:48 to 01:08, which features some of the finest guitar work and mixing in the entire scene, i would say. :)

but, it seems as if it weren't for that 20 second part, (which is sweet but oh so short) the song would be a bit lacking in the mixing and arrangement department.

it could have been really great if you had elaborated more on the mix, though! :)

cheers.

This Song is great, no, fantastic!

I like it. The slo guitar is very cool and the background music fits to the guitar.

I played Golden Sun 1 and 2 very very very long. I solved everything and in my opinion this games can beat many Final Fantasy games.

And my last words:

We need more GoldenSun 1 and 2 remixes!!! :D
