Recommended Posts

Streets of Rage 2 'Ending Theme (Reflecting Mix)'

This is something a little more soft and melodic (and boring. Sorry, after the Battletoads Mix, I need more music that gives me a rush.) What a lovely piano, and a very nice deep bass. The strings add a lot of much needed atmosphere. And I must say, despite my longing for something that gives me a rush, this is an excellent piece of work. Excellent work, Rayza.

Great mix of one of the best ending themes of all time. I had this before it was posted or else I would have reviewed it earlier. I can just picture the SoR2 gang chillin' in the helicopter ride home after a long day of beating the crap out of a thousand random punks to get to Mr. X. Anyway... great song.

This remix is really great. In the main review they mention it as a christmas-eque tune and I think that's very accurate. It's peaceful and heart warming really. 8)

I have to admit, when I found out about this site, THIS was the FIRST song I looked for. It always stuck out in my mind as one of my top 5 all time favorite video game songs. The original was a tad cheesy, especially with all the sugary sweet hugging/smiling going on in the end game cinemas, but it fit, and it just sounded theatrical to me. This remix takes the uplifting/triumphant vibe of the original, and smooths it out even more. If there was ever a Streets of Rage movie, THIS is the song it needs to end with. Awesome job!

This is some high-quality stuff. Incredible, deep and relaxing. It's a nice break from Rayza's usual electronic style.

The instruments are really well-coordinated, and except for this one minor instrument I can't really say that anything is overdone or out of place.

Starting with Synths that soar above a solid bassline, this mix only gets better when the piano melody comes in. The production here is very good, most notably the piano. I love the shimmering sound that is created, and it really helps the mix's atmosphere.

About halfway through it switches to a electric piano sound, which is also perfectly suited. My only reservations would be that the flute seems a bit piercing, and i'd like to hear a bit more low end on the background synths, but overall this is a fantastic mix.

This is a very pretty piece. I was going to comment at first about the bass sounding a little fake, but by the end I didn't notice at all. Instruments all work well together, and production is quite good. Nice work.

I started listening to this mix with the intention of giving a review to the best of my very limited musical abilities, but I honestly just lost myself in thought as I listened. thought about things as I listened to it. I guess the title is very appropriate then :)

the piano was very nice, and I liked it very much. honestly I can't say much more because I just kind of drift off every time I listen to it.

This really strikes me as like a world weary traveler, someone who hasn't seen home in a long time, especially with the introducing beach sound effects and the piano by the sea feel. The "reflective" in the title feels incredibly appropriate 'cause once listening to this one can tell that the work is done and now is the time for resting, and I appreciate the truth in advertising aspect about this mix. It's truly a wonderful mix, but it's a little too saccharine, imo, for my tastes.

Ouchy, the samples/synths.

The piano is quite loud compared to the rest of the song, which really sounds out of place. I also felt like the song could've been developed a lot more - there's some good ideas here though.

I'd take this as a WIP, but it really could use a bunch of work for a solid song proper.
