OCR00860 - Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island "Crystalline Caverns"

Recommended Posts

i love the original track, its my 2nd favorite in the game, my 1st is the Donut Lifts song, which needs another remix, like a metal donut lifts mix or something trancy :) Of course, not to say that i don't already love the mix we have, but variety folks, variety!

as the street sharks would say: "Jawesome!"

prety damn good in my opinion, im going to go rally around in the snow an listen to this while driving.

keep it up!

EDIT: ok after listening to this song several more time I realized that my last post simply doesn't do it justice...

this is remix is AMAZING. what McVaffe has done with this already great track deserves some sort of award, there is literally nothing bad about this song, just 5:00 of perfection.

congrats!

Almost 2 full years after I first downloaded this song..... it still brings my whole soul down everytime I listen to this magic song.... Sometimes I feel like crying, sometimes I just feel so happy... it's like it's making the way I'm truly feeling at the time I'm listenning to it to emerge!

It's still on top of my Top25 playlist in iTunes (you know, the intelligent playlist keeping my 25 most played songs) after all this time!!!! Now THAT'S a proof of how good this is! After 2 years I'm still in love with it!

I would like to thank McVaffe for all he has done on OCR since the begenning with his marvelous remixes.... I miss him a lot..! It was always a kick to see his name next to a new remix.... :(

Thanks for this gift... it's a song I'll never stop listenning to...!

Sure stood the test of time. It just works. The cut up piano is genius. The way every element perfectly melds together.. sublime.

One of the best.

This was probably my absolute favorite remix on the site when it first came out. Even now, while I'm not quite as fond of it as before, I can still feel the undeniable beauty that most use to describe this mix. Definitely a hall of famer.

This remix is by McVaffe and I love it so much! It's very calm and peacful beats with the drums and piano make it the most beautiful oc remix in the world in my opinion. It's so soothing and I love it.. It's my favorite remix ever. It's just soo beautiful. ^.^!

I was searching for the original version of the Caverns theme when I happened upon this one.

Then I forgot I was looking for the original.

This song is so wonderful. I thought the original was good but this remix proved me wrong.

Thought I'd let you know that some guy added a crappy Zelda tune overtop of this and is hosting it on Newgrounds claiming it to be his work. People are giving it 10's because of the great original track (yours), and he is replying acting like he did all the work. Really burnt my toast if you know what I mean. Here is the link http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/172297 Kick his ass seabass

I dunno what's worse, the fact that this guy did that, or the fact that people liked it...

What was a good song was ruined when he put that awkward synth over it. I didn't listen to more than a few seconds of it, but being a huge fan of McVaffe's stuff I knew what it was. Are you the one who also gave him a 0 on newgrounds?

Ha, thats pretty funny. Btw the guy removed the song from newgrounds, he sent me a message saying he was gonna remove the part that wasn't his. Then he said he was just gonna get rid of the whole thing.

I really like Yoshi's island a lot when it came out and I still do. Making this remix makes it an actual cavern board for the game.

Awesome. :D

Hey, I'm sorta new here so I may be a little... bad at doing reviewing and whatnot. Anyways, I REALLY love this one. One of my favs on this site. Everything in it just fits so well together. And, now that I think about it, it kinda reminds me of Linkin Park. Like a mix of Yoshi's Island music and Linkin Park's "My December". Yup. Umm... nothing much else to say, so, umm... later?

Man, reading through the comments made me nostalgic for CD's for some reason.

Either way this is a damn amazing mix. Basically, this mix takes my 3 of my favorite instruments, and then combines them all into one glorious mix of an already glorious source. Probably my favorite from McVaffe, but then again I don't think I've heard all his stuff yet. I'm over half way there, though.

Huh. I listened to that after you said it, and it does kinda sound like it. Of course, McVaffe's is better anyway. I was not fond of the caverns theme at all in SMW2 when I first heard it, but this is a masterpiece. I'd expect nothing less from McVaffe

Pretty nice, if a bit unremarkable. It fills a solid role as thought provoking background music, but never really steps into the forefront. Part of the luxury afforded by doing so many ReMixes is that you can definitely try some new things, and as a whole, this track is good, but I definitely prefer more melody-centric works.

Great for doing homework or staring out the window on a rainy day though. :-)

This is, simply put, one of McVaffe's best tracks; and considering his prolific contribution to OCR, that means something. Indeed, there is so much wonderful interpretation going on here. Not necessarily in the melodic sense, but the sound scape is incredible. A beautiful acoustic piano line holds the piece together while overlaid with subtle strings and some awesome experimental percussion. Love those chords at 2:15 and the subsequent synth and panning effects. At 3:30 we get the beginnings of the climax of the piece. Carefully programmed percussion helps to reinforce this section, and by 4:30 we get a nice cool down to finish off the mix.
