OCR01398 - Guardian Legend "The Legend of Lightning Larry"

Recommended Posts

Very sexy guitar, almost makes me want to wet my pants. As DJP stated in the write-up, the added little guitar effects fit perfectly into the song, too, never completely distracting the listener from the melody, but never floating around in the background making you think "Wtf? Was he just looking for extra stuff to put into the song?"

Wah-wah-wow! That was some firece guitar bending there! Blast of Lightning Larry, becomes face lift for unsuspecting listener.

There's something about his track that really reminds me of those Anime series intro tunes. It's like rock and roll, but fun and funky, every once in a while they say something in English like "Lucky, lucky"...

I think I've been staying up too late watching "Berserk"...

Regardless, raging remixer, resume rock-n-rolling regularly!

Respectfully,

I have to say, this mix sounds like something that would be play in a B movie's sex scene where they're having really aggressive sex. I'm talking meet a girl inside a club, hit it off and suddenly you're in the back alley lifting up her skirt and you're both violating each other.

In other words, this mix is hot shit. I totally dig it.

zyko, a winner is YOU. 'bout time this particular theme from TGL was covered. I mean, sure, the opening is awesome, but everyone's done it. Don't think I've heard this one remixed before though.

The cannon+explosion at 3'58 I never noticed before is enough for me to stop working, listen again, open a browser, find the song, and post a comment... about how how awesome that cannon+explosion at 3'58 is. Ahmmyes. Like miniature M&Ms wrapped in a creeamy chocolate bar, with peanut butter, crunchy, Ahmmyes. That's Ka-Blamo.

zyko's work is usually plain old "interesting" to me, but this one really gets me driving. In the night time. Lots of really cool things were done with this song. Don't let the slight muddiness turn you off. Listening to all the details completely nulls any "muddiness" (which adds to it in some cases...or maybe the whole case).

Intro is pretty nice, and lulls a bit, so when the song kicks in, it sounds extra energetic. The layered guitars are great, and overall its a good mix, but I am not digging that explosion near the end. Ouch!

Some of the guitar tones themselves are kindof thin, but when there are like a hojillion guitars rocking at once, that's the only way to do it.

Sounds like the bass is live too, which is a gift to us all.

Good mix, nice phrasing. :-)

I just noticed the light guitar feedback present in the first half-second of the track. Unintentional or not, it was quirky and I was feeling it.

weed's come out with some awesome stuff since this mix, but this is still one of my personal favorites from his collection!

I've always loved this song, and still do - I have a soft spot for The Guardian Legend, it's such a great game and had some great music. It was too hard for me as a kid, but I still loved it.

This song is heavier on the bass side than I remember, but it's a great listen - nice and rolls along. I still listen to it every now and then because it's such an enjoyable rambling song, and one of many zyko songs I love :) .
