OCR02370 - Sonic Advance 'The Glacier's Peak'

Recommended Posts

Very nice and soft piece here, bass is nice, as well as the percussion, however it seemed rather repetitive to me, but the relaxing environment of it made up for it. Very nice mix!

Incredibly excited when I saw the title logo from Sonic Advance 1 on the right side of the screen.

The site has plenty of Sonic arranges of the old console games, but the handheld games get no love. Which is a shame because the music quality is just as good. Hell, the gameplay is just as good. Seriously.

Anyway, great arrangement. Would love to see more arranges of these songs, in particular, egg rocket zone 1.

I liked the original very much, it was my 2nd favorite tune of SA and this remix is definitely fitting. Now there's only my favorite one missing, being Ice Mountain Zone 2 :-)

This so much. Though a similar story could be said for the 3d Sonics as well. Past Sonic Adventure 2, it is hard to find love as well (we got one mix from 06 but that's it). Still, gotta start somewhere, and this is an excellent start

Ice Mountain Act 1 was definitely my favorite track from Sonic Advance, so I was extremely happy to find a remix to it on my favorite fan website. This song is so soothing, and it fits the winter environment of Rochester, NY at the moment :)

Reminds me of the kind of happy vibe one would encounter in Mario Kart or Animal Crossing. The slow-building arrangement really lets me get lost in this track, it's easy to just chill and zone out with all of the pleasant melodies bouncing around my headphones :-)

Quaint and very enjoyable.

Yeah agreed.

Sonic Advance 1 and 2 (especially 2, not 3, they pushed their luck there) are the best Sonic games this side of 2000, period. The engine is fantastic, art style is brilliant, music is killer and the gameplay is a logical progression from the old games. Why these titles get little attention from the Sonic community (and SEGA) is beyond me.

Anyway, whilst yeah, this is a bit of a sound upgrade from the original, it's no way a bad thing and I most definitely enjoyed the listen.

I love that you hold off on stating the VIb, VIIb, I progression 'till around 2 minutes in. The subtle little change in harmony helps to give the whole thing a sense of progression and, really with that sequence, resolution.

Couldn't agree more. Been waiting for the day when Sonic Advance (any of the three games) gets remixed. Some amazing tunes were hidden in these gems. Though I agree with you regarding no.3, I'm still hoping someone gets around to remixing some tunes from that game especially. It's one of my favorite video games in terms of music.

All three games have amazing tunes, and the Ice Mountain Act 1 is my favorite from the first game. I love how the original feel of the song is kept very much the same as one would experience playing the game. This is a very lovely mix that's been put forward.

The Sonic games on the GBA were so good, and I was really glad to see a track like this finally make it to OCR when it did. I actually liked the idea of making it sound more light-tuned with the beat and having that "music box" sound in the arrangement. Great Wintery feeling from the ice level of this game.

Very cool and cute track. Stylistically it fits early spring, when the snow and ice is gradually melting, the sun shines more often and brighter, and you feel very inspired and happy :) Good job!
