Made me smile - you did a sweet job of capturing the feel of Ikaruga with your verse. Honestly the weakest link here is the audio quality. I hesitate to rate it higher because the voices are grainy at times.
But man, this is glorious. Nice work!
I've only noticed after finishing that it sounds granier on other headsets/speakers than mine - and I should have checked that before uploading. Hopefully, I'll be able to fix those in future songs.
Funny, the song invokes an image of lighthearted adventure. This.. doesn't sound truly 8-bit, but I still like it, so no problem there. Loops flawlessly; kudos for that!
And yeah, enjoy the week-long fame. xD
I know right:/
It's my 3rd time makeing the weekly tops actually.
Thanks for the review:]
Holy mother of Chuck...
I remember playing this on Sonic 2, this level pissed me off because it made me go "WTF!?". This song makes me feel so happy though... The intro captivated me, which is something I like in a good song. I'm pretty sure most do. This sounds like GREAT background music, like in a beach. Its just so... happy. Great job. You are officially my favorite Sonic remixer/artist of all time.
Why thank you. I'm glad to hear it.
Yeah the only problem I really had with this level is that you couldn't really mix it up and try new strategies, but I suppose it's just the calm before the bgiger storm, right? lol
For going from 18 to roughly 274 seconds, you did an unparalleled job. I like how the twists and beats on top of trancifying(is that a word?) the original melody simply contributed to a better song. It's heart came from Sonic, but I see this song in a Megaman game for some reason. XD
If anybody could do better, I'll shit bricks. Nice work!
I get that a lot. It appears a LOT of Sonic songs can be used in Megaman. In fact I think I saw on youtube somewhere once that if Sonic didn't have spikes and had a gun for an arm instead he'd BE Megaman LOL
Anyway, thanks for the review. I'm glad you like it
To be honest, this song was a letdown for me. I expected something extremely fast and catchy. The intro was good, but it seemed that you transitioned it into something that was just "out of whack". It just didn't seem to appeal to me. Maybe its just me, but I don't get why this song is on the best of the week. I should congratulate you for getting a track here though, at least. Maybe if you made the song into something else...
Well I'm sorry you feel that way, maybe you'd like some of my other stuff. Thanks for the input though!!!
It sounds good, but not my taste..
I'll hand it to you, good sir, the instruments in this song sound beautiful and clear. It all sounds... different for some reason, though. Never really heard anything like this. Its unfamiliar, and the song just doesn't... I don't get it. It sounds nice, but I don't like it much. I am going to give you a 9 though, it sounds like you put a lot of work into this piece.
hey man at least you're honest - you're prolly just not used to it - the notes are also more "natural" so that it doesnt sound midi-perfect note wise :)
and yes a lot of effort was put into this song.
thanks for the review!
Good times, good times...
The mask you added over the intro made the song seem... old. After the transition, the song seems similar to the actually KH2 one, but in HD. You also ended the song nicely too. Its a shame the actual song itself wasn't too long, so you really couldn't make it longer. It just seems a bit too close to the original one, but it's still fantastic work nonetheless.
yeah I wanted a clear crisp version of the song :)
I loved it too much to change it though :P
With REAL guitar!?
Oh my... Well, the REAL guitar threw me off there. That alone deserves good props. The harmony(if you can call it that) is nice too. Its just a loop, and the song isn't all that complex either. If you extended it, added another instrument (maybe?) it would be a perfect score. It didn't appeal that much, but I admire you for opening it and ending it cleanly.
yeah there arethings I would do differently if I were to do thissong today, but oh well, you live and you learn!
Like with, but with no voices..
The beginning make my ears cry for more, the remastered tune was wonderful. It was perfect... until the voices started. And, then I realized how short this song was. I guess it was a demo, and maybe I'm just not the person that enjoys vocals, but it was alright.
it was merely the starting part of hte song - I never finished it. Also the vocals are absolutely essential - I might finish this one day - I may not..
This song made me think of someone recalling an old memory, on the beach. I admire the soft ocean sounds under the music box, it really gives the song depth. It feels like a dream. I've never played Chrono Cross, but this song is simply amazing regardless. The song length also fits this kind of song, with the music box and all. I hope you make more of this, please.
this song rendition imo is better than the one in chrono cross :)
and we shall see ;)
