OCR01607 - Great Giana Sisters "Giana's Homecoming"

Recommended Posts

Oooooh, man, I heard this as a wip, and knew it would be great.

Very beautiful (if a bit slow). Guitars are well done, vocals are beautiful. Percussion is brilliant.

Overall, very beautiful mix.

Yep, very nice piece of music. I especially liked the acoustic guitar "pangs" in the second half, especially when combined with voice. Very enjoyable to listen to!

I love the laid back style of this mix and the vocal/ string duet at the end.

This is very enjoybale to listen to overall. It's the most relaxing remix that I can recall listening to in quite a while.

As good as I remember it from the WIP thread, only this time with the benefit of having the intonation issue in the vocals at the end replaced with some beautiful harmony. I normally prefer songs to be energetic, but something like this has such a nice harmonic quality, it is equally excellent. Must be the northern European sense of melody shining through.

The texture of the guitar contrasts the smooth pads and vocals perfectly, and the drums subtly punctuate the structure without being over or under-bearing. I really like this track and i'm glad to see it on the front page.

Highly recommended.

Oh wow, djpretzel wasn't kidding about the Twin Peaks vibe. I'm totally catching it.

I'm loving this. Not sure how I feel about the percussion at times. Perhaps they're a bit MIDI-ish. It's not too much though to take away from the overall song. I wonder if more acoustic sounding drums would work better, but I don't know.

The vocals fit the song's style perfectly. You have a very nice voice. Harmonies put this song over the top in a very nice way. There's so much sweetness at the end, so much that in the right mood and setting, would definitely bring emotional tears to my eyes.

Very nice mixing and instrumentation all around.

Good job on this! I will most definitely be listening to this again and again.

Despite being very laid back and chilly, there's a lot going on in this mix. I really like the electric guitar, as it adds a certain degree of melancholy to the song (reminds me somewhat of Tepid's A rose for Zelda ReMix).

Nice work.

This one I liked, but wasn't sure I liked it enough to give it 5 stars.

After a couple of months of having it on rotation, I found I enjoyed it more and more, feeling the relaxing, return to simplicity vibe, and the happiness of being able to chill. Homecoming. :) It moved me a little more every time I heard it, until I finally decided it was a favorite.

Now this is cute. It has a nicely nostalgic flair to it, not the sappy over the top kind but the kind that would make its listeners take one of those larger than normal sighs and exhale it with a big smile and a faraway look in their eyes.

You know what I mean.

It's pretty good, very nice, smooth and soothing, but all in all, I don't really care for it.

Yeah, this has the mood of a time when you'd sit, look out at the sunset, and reminisce over everything you've done that day... a nice close to a long journey home, if you will.

Nice guitar work, toward the end when the vocal harmonies are juxtaposed with the soft drumbeats and the acoustic guitar notes, it's pure bliss :-) The ending caught me off guard a little but in a good way.

Highly recommended for anyone looking for some very thoughtful, mellow music!

I have to say, listening to this one slowly expand was a really nice thing after a day of work. It never gets huge, but it doesn't need to, nice reflection on the remixer's part. My one slight disappointment is that I'm not crazy about the vibrato on the beginning notes, but I can easily put that aside.

Chill, quiet, relaxing, nice work.

Been busy with work, bands, touring, kids etc. I don't like the sound of hit and run :) But I've decided today that it's time to make a shot for a comeback on OCR. Gotta find an interesting source to remix.
