OCR01323 - Space Harrier "Limitless Skies"


Recommended Posts

Definitely a contrast to I Got the Spacebeam :D Carbo has provided another rocking effort all around as provided by his take on the target themes, and solid proof that he can provide some quality punk progression all around; compositionally I see this to be one of his better pieces out there, one that has managed to match with the likes of Fight On and the recent Dual Storm (collab with BrainCells) from this month's DoD.

I was fine with the overall EQs, I'm sure, however if one thing had me questionable I'd point at the panning approach; the thick textures are definitely there when it came to the guitar, but I felt that much of it was dependant on one speaker within the opening stages. But outside from that, this is great, great stuff from CarboHydroM.

Funny you mentioned the tape deck though, because I used to do the same thing with my Sega Genesis when I was a kid. Coincidence, ney? :P

Okies, i'm not one to go for this style, but CarboHydroM never fails to impress me...

I love this track. It's one of my fave theme's EVER, and it's been done great justice...

As far as the mixing goes, you can hear this guy getting better and better with every mix, although i agree with djP's EQ comment... I'm a big fan of Carbo's Pop'n Twinbee mixes, but this easily outshines them both, which is a big thing for me (i LOVE those mixes!!!)...

Well done, hey:D

Great mix, great source...

Good stuff.

The guitar is realistic. The beats are cool. I love the panning effect on beginning (and in other times too). That's a good rock. And I really enjoyed this stuff. Much better than original. Quite nice this new work by CarboHydroM. Wow,"The Nine Tails Fox And The Avenger" by CarboHydroM is pleasant too.

Huh... It appears that the quad post error tends to occur when editing an existing post?

Anyway... this mix. The arrangement is ace, and the variation is more than is expected with the genre. However, the EQ seems to be really lacking. There's not enough bass or treble, so everything sounds super-thin and distant. Otherwise, I'm loving this.

Also, I really appreciated the ska section at 1:26. :)

Very nice song and awesome job with the rhythms (how can you do those, man?!?!?!?)

Due to the fact of my complete lack of feelings for this game soundtrack I have to say that this one is in the bottom in comparation with other CHM's releases. Check them all!!!

The change-up at 1:25 is very nicely implemented, as are the heavier drums at 1:47 - I didn’t really feel that the drums were angry enough to support the vicious axe work at any other stage, though. But I guess you’ve done the original justice and that’s the ultimate compliment one can pay ;)

Early on it was a little too heavy on the right side for spatial balance, but as it progressed, it evened out a bit. Drums and bass were forgettable, but the rhythm playing is spot on. I keep throwing quarters at it, and they are bouncing back. Now that is what I call tight playing.

Lead tone i'd have preferred to have a bit more sustain, but it all works together, and the source is excellent.

Very well done.
