OCR02317 - Gitaroo Man 'FML (If I Could Drift Away)'

Recommended Posts

Slow, peaceful, and soft chiptune chill ReMix with a whispy whistling? Awesome. I actually enjoy how airy and far away the whistling sounds over the chippy goodness, and then all of a sudden it picks up out of nowhere! That part sound more like flying away like a bat outta hell rather than drifting, but I'll take it. Going back to a slower pace after all of that action, even if briefly, gave this ReMix much need change-up, which is great for a song about six minutes long. That whistling is infectious though, it's got me doing it.

Wow I had never listened to this mix. It's amazing!

Very emotional (the source is beautiful too, I had to listen to it after hearing the remix!). I love the small little touches like the guitar sound (is it reversed?) and all that stuff.

Sir J is an awesome dude, didn't you know it? While this piece isn't so funky and energetic as most of his works, it's a brilliant one. It starts off with silky Rhodes and chiptune and some cool whistling, which sets the perfect mood. And when I got enough chills, it suddenly kicks up at 2:19, blending in sweet drums and reversed (!) guitars and a lot of some odd sounds, and I... cried. I've already said that I'm quite sentimental guy, so yeah... That drop is 4:33 is also nice. So, all in all, this is a very moody piece. Great stuff.
