OCR02291 - Mega Man 9 'A New Beginning'

Recommended Posts

Way to go CHM! I knew you were going to do well on the project but wasn't expecting it to be one of the mixposts O_o

From what I understood of your profile, you have a tendancy to take ending songs and present them in a strongly upbeat everybody's-buddies-again kind of way, which I've noted particularly from renditions of the ending themes for Kirby Super Star, Pop n' Twinbee and Zelda: ALTTP (as part of "Unsealed"). So you've really managed to take the personification one step further for Mega Man 9's ending, really working on the pacing throughout when measuring it up towards the original.

I wish I could nitpick this as much as I can like some of your pre-2009 works, but to me, I feel this is amongst one of your best works yet, and a wonderful way to bring Back In Blue to a close.

So, once again huge success with your track, and welcome to the "album closer" club, member #38! With love, member #19. :wink:

This is a great mix! One of my favorite on the album, and I'm really glad you didn't try to change it up too much but rather pump it up. The source material was probably my favorite of the soundtrack and this one definitely does it justice.

It may be simple, but this was still the standout track from the album for me... maybe I'm just simple myself. There's one rock/synth combo figure that's repeated throughout the track (right at the beginning, 1:16, 1:46, 3:01) that makes me smile every time I hear it... given it's prominence in the mix I assume it featured heavily in the original as well, but I've never played the game so my ears give you full credit :wink:. Awesome work.

Wow, this mix has only a few reviews.

CarboHydroM has a sweet sound overall. His punk rock style is great and there's few if any that really does anything like what he does. This is yet another solid mix by him. I wish he subbed more of his stuff :( .

Wow, what a treat, you can definitely hear CarboHydroM's style in this ReMix. Fantastic drumming, the synthes were well done and the guitars really did give this a live sound. Amazing work with the climax and giving this tune the upbeat loving it deserved. Totally loved how the arrangement was handled and this was a great closer track for the album. Great job.

Beautiful work and easily one of my favorites from the overall-strong MM9 project, I love the tight rhythm playing, and various harmonies. This is a really clean mix, really giving each element plenty of room to shine.

Really solid work, I absolutely love this song! :-)

This song is the icing on the cake for the MM9 album; it captures the feeling of relief at freeing Dr. Light and stopping Wily once again after so long.

It's also nice to rock out to! :D

RAAWWWKKK!!! :P

I can't explain it, but I get a distinct "Sonic the Hedgehog" feeling when I listen to this. One of the best from the album, keep it going!

Yeah, I'm definitely getting a feeling of STH-ish vibe here. Something that can easily be in Sonic Adventure/Sonic Adventure 2. The guitar playing is top-notch as always and all the other performances are quite enjoyable as well. Awesome thing, CHM!
