OCR03269 - Super Smash Bros. Melee & Brawl "Choose Your Character!"


Recommended Posts

As far as I am concerned, this was Iwata's daily work theme. Get up early, rock that shower, power that breakfast. Drive that car to work (or limo, I ain't judging), open that office door, command that desk. End song.

 

Tell me it doesn't work.

It would be almost expected for these Smash Bros. tracks to be rearranged as rock tracks. But this remix pulls off the rock arrangement very well. It doesn’t feel like the artist was trying too hard to be as “hardcore” as possible. Just subtle enough to be respectable to the original source material.

Nice rock remix. I like how the drums aren't stuck to a typical beat and instead switch between different rhytms in the different riffs of the song. However, I feel the drum sequencing is very mechanical (very notice-able in the section where the drums play like orchestral percussion). The bass also felt mechanical in the 2:00 section. Regarding the arrangement, I like the idea of symphonic rock, suits the sources well. I did feel you were lacking some instruments playing higher notes though, since it felt that everything was in the middle.

Overall, this is a rather nice rock remix. I'm disappointed you didn't use the "Character Select" theme from Smash 64 though haha.

Wow, nice! This is the kind of rock that I would expect from something like Smash Bros, which makes having it used in the EVO hype video fitting and well-deserved. The percussion was amazingly hard-hitting, and the whole mix just sounded as clean as could be. Very cool track from a pretty sweet album.
