OCR00687 - Donkey Kong Country 2 "Simian Symphony: Part 1"


Recommended Posts

Samples overall seem a little weak with different room sounds for each, but the arrangement ideas are pretty nice, and it's a medley without feeling like an excuse to string several different tracks together. Some nice ornamentation added, and the harp solo was pretty. Some of the dulcimer stuff reminded me of Suikoden, which is always a good thing, in my estimation.

Nice arrangement, this would be really nice if Nutritious or Bustatunez did some orchestra lovin' to the samples.

Well it's been almost nine years; so I guess we probably won't get 'Part II,' but that's okay I guess. This arrangement can definitely stand on its own. When I downloaded this back in '02, it was instantly one of my favorites. All three sections are wonderful, but I have to say that the 'Ice Cavern' section is the best. When those snares come in circa 3:00, it's a blissful experience. Prot also shows his talent with percussion in the third section and rounds it off with a soft transition at the end.
