OCR02326 - Mega Man 3 & 2 'Magnetic Fireworks'

Recommended Posts

It's just a willrock mix, nbd

In all seriousness, fricken awesome transitions in style, from 8 bit to 16 bit to classic Willrock crap. Lovin' this :D

Loving this new take on a frenetic track. Even the original tune went all over the place. Love how it keeps the harmony fresh with every pitch. Makes me wish that this was in a new Megaman game ost.

just stamp it with the willrock guarantee: guaranteed to be on your ipod without previewing first. Epic as usual, my friend.

Not my favorite of all of wr's work. Still replaying Showdown in a loop on most car trips. But it's still textbook Willrock style, bending source material around his little finger and saying "well these sound good together. and throwing two games in a blender with a dash of synth and sauce for a well rounded sound that delights me everytime. I think it's time to package the man's mixes into an OC album of their own (honestly i think there's enough for a 2-disk sp. ed.).

Catchy, yeah! :D

I've always been a fan of innovations, and this one has a fantastic attention to detail among its colors, so I can breathe happiness in its greatest depths. I love it!

Wow very nice Willrock! When I saw this on the front page, I was hoping it just wasn't a direct post of your track from the GRMRB. While, I enjoyed that track a lot, this definitely feels like the definitive version. The expanded length, expanded soundscape, and the tons of nifty transitions and solo elements really stood out in the version. It's a very fun and enjoyable track! Good work!

For the record, I would never have subbed the original, it just didn't feel like a finished piece of music :)

mhm. Good enough to download, but not the kind of style I was expecting from you, Rock. i'll give it another few runs, but the 8/16-bit play turns me off: It sounds too much like it belongs in a game and needs someone to remix it.

Hahaha, we're getting too old for this shit. "Sounds like it's from an old game, looking to be remixed" is a new one. :lol:

Gotta say that WR is one of my favorite remixers as of late on here, with this jam being no exception. The first 1:05 is a fresh take on this level unlike other remixes I've heard of this song (LOVE that little ad lib at 1:02-1:04) and can't go wrong with the Flash Man mix in 15 secs later. Ending wasn't my cup o' tea, but oh well...

Generally dig the whole vibe of this song, which is becoming the norm with Rock. Cheers! :D

Ah, I loved the updates this one recieved, and I also loved the original. Which one I like better is actually hard to say, I think the less maximalist original was actually REALLY enjoyable. My (and my best friend's) personal favorite. But I think this improvement is still quite the improvement. Great job on both accounts.

Terrific! I love how it progresses from start to finish. Oddly, someone else asked me while I was playing this if it was from a sonic game, and I can hear the style a bit. Upbeat, lots of energy and very organized. Nicely done.

Yay, a WillRock song with a synth lead again! ...And chiptunes? Surprising. The song sounds thin for some reason to me - maybe it could've used a little more in the mid areas at times? Something bothers me about the thinness, but overall the song sits in a good place & goes places you don't really see with Mega Man music.
