OCR01350 - Sonic the Hedgehog 3 "Memories Frozen in Time"

Recommended Posts

I really like the mellow feel to this - gets me to just drift off mentally and enjoy the piece on a whole other level.

I'm not sure if it's due to the source or arrangement (most likely both) but I found myself humming little phrases from the melody and bassline as I was walking from class to class yesterday. Also, I just find the structure of the song helps with the flow of pictures in my head - in short, this would have a really touching music video if there was one.

I found this after looking for Hip-Hop on the site and to find one of this quality is pretty damn cool and satisfying. The break/switch-up at about 2:38 came a touch too suddenly for me but once I got over that, it sounds beautiful and keeps things fresh.

The lyrical content is inspirational, I find that whether it's relational or not is secondary to being able to provide the listener with a window into the rapper's world, which was done really well. Without rambling on for too long, this had me thinking about quite a lot of things - some superficial, others personal. Thanks.

The ending with the distorted vocal clips just gets me every time I listen to this, just adds a nice aesthetic to it that I like.

Hey guys, I just wanted to thank everyone for your comments. It's awesome that people are still digging this thing after 5 years (it's been 5 years already? jeez...).

And also, to everyone who's been asking for the instrumental for this track, it's been here NOT getting downloaded - http://sonicskillz.com/?p=95

This is what I call a Flawless Victory. This song is fantastic, and the instrumental is bar none one of my favorite instrumentals ever made.

Really nice flow, it's pretty relentless but still doesn't feel forced. The backing track is unique and well produced, but the vocal delivery is what really sets this apart.

Ridiculously good, don't miss this one.

I just went through all 11 pages to see if I'd left a comment for this track; I could have sword I had, but I guess not.

I really dig this track. I'm not really into the gangsta-rap side of hip hop, but this on the other hand, I can listen to this stuff on repeat for a while. The lyrics are inspiring (and I thought they were well written/performed/recorded), and the groove is soothing. Excellent work, guys!
