OCR01394 - Revenge of Shinobi "Corner of Sunset and Keys"

Recommended Posts

The production was kind of dull-sounding and needed some higher frequency presence, and the keyboard sounded mechanical when exposed, but the arrangement was awesome. Once I compared this to the original, I was blown away by how comprehensive the arrangement was. Very chill. Glad to see you back after so long, José!

Jose, you know from my 'rants' in unmod how much I dig your style. I loved Unknown from MC and I love this. very chill, smooth, funky. Loving the hand precussion.

Glad to see you back again, man. I hope this isn't a one time deal.

Shinobi´s soundtrack was always a curious thing. This game is a classic. The songs are rich in melody and such. And man...it is quite amazing. Sunrise Theme is very good on this arrangement. The instrumentation was well executed. It don´t boring and it´s not repetitive.

Very soft.

I wasn't feeling this at first. Don't know why. Especially after hearing the original, it's amazing to see how José expanded on the theme. Smooth, chill, and any other description of that nature fits the bill here perfectly. A pity we don't see your stuff too often, but if quality over quantity is what you go for, then I can definitely embrace that.

Funky and smooth, I love the rhodes bed and the soloing. The hand percussion also added a lot of great textures, and the vibes are like the shimmering frosting on top. The leads switch out great, with an organ coming halfway through to keep things even more mixed.

Jazzy and fun, check this out out, guys.

If I didn't know that this ReMix was by Jose, I would have thought that it would've come from something along the lines of the Morse camp. So funky and tropical sounding, great for chilling and moving with the beat. So much love for the organ that pops in a bit into the mix. I like how this just reminds me so much of a jazzy little island party. Very cool.
