OCR02321 - Pokémon Gold Version 'Precious Metals'

Recommended Posts

I... uh... I dance to this in my bedroom.

It's not the prettiest dance, more of a waddle than anything else, but damn if it doesn't make me feel better afterward.

I can easily understand djp's sentiment over the 'consumerist' nature of the track, considering that Goldenrod had a department store. So I guess I'm pretty much imagining it all decked up with tinsel and flashing lights. :razz:

What managed to surprise me is that rhythm-wise, it managed to base itself more on the HeartGold/SoulSilver version, so even with the 8-bit sounds it managed to root into more modern-day relevance and all. The starter sound effects at 1:11 placed in were awesome/appropriate, and the morphing of the theme throughout the short time frame really makes it felt like it went on for longer than merely 2 and a half minutes; very cute and charming arrangement.

Also, is it me or is there a distinct amount of reverb placed across the whole mix aside from the ending? Not saying that's a distractant, but it did somehow make me think the extra space might've made the mix feel a bit too empty for something as chirpy as this.

Light irk aside, Ben and halc working together is a pleasure to witness, and I'm all up for seeing more clever interpretations from both artists (even individually) in the near future :)

Jeez, has it been a while since the Pokemon album was posted? This here is a late bloomer.

This is a nice happy & relaxing chip hybrid track, or what halc lovingly calls 9bit. It doesn't overstay its welcome, but I do wish there was some more to it somehow. Hard to really hate this mix though, the Pokemon sound effects have to make you smile!

There is something about chippy ReMixes that just make me smile, and this is included. I like the way the arrangement changed over the course of the mix and the pokemon cries SFX were a nice touch.

So...awesome...

I love this mix to death. I downloaded the Pokémon: The Missingno Tracks album the had here and hand down this was my favorite piece from it. Fantastic job.

This mix is so chippy and upbeat, and really showcases what Insert Rupee can do. It's very bright and bubbly, and those added pokemon cries are a nice touch as well. Overall, a great track that works well as an antidepressant :)
