OCR01336 - Secret of Mana "NightTime Evolution"

Recommended Posts

This is beautiful, slick, airy, atmospheric, and full of all the elements I find that make music so wonderful. I can't wait for more from this remixer, especially if his forte is in this style.

An instant classic.

The percussion is really cool. I love it.

Apart from that, it was executed pretty well -- the melody didn't really blend in with the style much, but it was a great attempt. The percussion, like I said before, is outstanding. The sound as a whole comes through nicely. :) I enjoyed listening to it.

Good work, hope to see more creative attempts from you.

Wow! Nice work, Harmony!

A simple, beautiful and atmospheric ReMix. Your instruments are certainly beautifully made. You play live guitar? Yeah that's pretty nice! Solid electronic beats are creative too. I have never listened the original song. But your arrangement must be original indeed. Sweet.

I haven't truly loved a remix since I found Tickle Me Willy. And I must say this remix tune has hit my favorite songs folder and shall stay there. I love this remix, very nice work!

This was great! Loved it. Was a little worried the guitar would get repetitive after listening to it a lot of times, but I'm convinced now it won't: it seems to blend in to become more a part of the rhythm than a central figure. Personally, I don't mind the cello at the end. Yeah, it might not sound perfect but I still prefer it over nothing at all. It seems to introduce more dissonance which was prevalent in the original.

Sounds pretty chill, the instrumentation is nice. The percussion does its job fairly well, but it seems to be a little tiring after a while. I would think that adjusting the pitch every so often might give it some more variety for the ears. The affects about halfway are interesting but seem like they're just thrown in, whereas it would be better if they fit with what the instruments were doing. Or perhaps having the little gating part lead into the chord change. Oh, also the flute should have been voiced more loudly, since it carried the melody during some sections and it was hard to hear with all the other background sound going on. Little things like this would make this mix a lot more interesting. Still, not a bad job overall.

B.E.

I loved the guitar, that airy beat really worked out well without sounding too repetative. And the violins at the end was a nice touch.

I nearly died listening to this. Absolutely beautiful. It really reminds me of the night-time and makes me think of some sad scene at night. Of course eventually I start thinking of Potos and how I must cheat my way back in.. but.. err.. yeah.

Great remix. Sounds like something that would come from McVaffe, which is really good. The percussion is really cool. Earned a place on my OCR: Top 20 playlist. :D

Playful and elegant, this one will stay active on my playlists for a long time.

The percussion is simply delightful, allowing one's attention to lie soley upon it for long periods of time. And the pauses also feel right at home, and at least for me, keep the song fresh.

I can see how the cello feels a little out of place at the ending, but to me that's almost necessary in order to not have the song simply drop out.

Thank you for contributing this excellent song!

This reminds me of a night rainstorm. It's very soothing and mellow, but there's enough motion with the percussion and that awesome acoustic guitar base that everything just flows.

It has a certain "dreamy" quality to it. Indeed, the acoustic guitar is impressive right from the word go. Harmony has certainly proved his worth since this song (and it was only 5 months ago!), and this was and is a great start. Mellow is definitely an appropriate term.

I initially had difficulty pinning what song this was based off of, though when I did find what it was I abruptly realized that this is an example of a great remix. I could suddenly hear where the original piece from the game was interwoven with the rest of the remix - it was neither a direct copy nor straying too far. Excellent work, in all.
