Pure audio gold. Not only have you taken a source material that so many have remixed and remixed it well, you've done it in a seamless way that brings new life and sets the bar that much higher for future remixers. You've earned yourself a new listener for sure.
I love how this captures the eerie quality associated with Shade Man's theme. The bell chimes add to the effect very well.
The heavy beat treads a line between "being there" and sometimes overpowering the main melody.
However, overall, this piece was really enjoyable. I'm definitely downloading it for my personal library.
n_n Sorry for posting to late a response, but I was fixing my PC.
I'm grateful to you for listening to my remix, and for download it, It makes me happy =)
Mad props to anyone who can make Gameboy Mega Man II Metal Man stage sound as good to my ears as NES Mega Man 2 Metal Man stage. And you deserve mad props for this.
Pure ear bliss
I have to say, this is one of my personal favorite covers of Elec Man's stage of all time (except maybe Evolution of Circuitry by The Megas and Entertainment System). The synth definitely draws out that happy, peppy feeling in the tune in a soothing way that's easy on the ears, and I feel the bass beat you gave it works well with it.
I want you to know this was pure bliss on my ears, and brought back the memories I had of climbing up through Elec Man's stage.
That's fantastic -- when songs have a certain nostalgia factor to them, the listening experience is always pleasantly enhanced, and I'm glad you got that!
I checked out some other covers on this site prior to making this, and I really didn't feel that they did justice to the original while at the same time expanding by introducing something new. I did not, however, run into the one you mentioned, so I will definitely check it out.
Thanks for leaving a review!
I like how that eerie tone from the original was translated into your remix.
I think you just made my childhood and one of my gaming obsessions a lot more awesome.
Not only did I have a nostalgia moment but for a moment the hairs on the back of my neck stood up while listening to this. Which is a good sign, mind you. You NAILED it. Like to the point where I keep listening in amazement after a dozen loops.
You, sir, kicked so much arse with this.
That's what I thought when I was putting it together. But it's still not perfect yet. I want to really nail this one. :D
Thanks for your review. :)
"Truly Lives Up to its name"
It is very rare that I end up spellbound by a remix, but to literally have my breath caught up in my chest and feel a chill down my spine from a remix is even rarer. You managed to achieve both with this remix. It might be the beauty of it. It might be the soothing quality. It might even be both. But the fact remains that my mind and body were spellbound, and continue to be spellbound every time I listen.
You managed to take Flash Man's stage theme, and change it into the musical version of the Time Stopper. I prefer the instrumental set you used for your remix to "Nuclear Flash" on OCR (which I notice you recommended); yours seems to fit better to me for some reason that I still haven't quite put my finger on.
I may have had my one of my other friends comment for me once upon a time, but I still stand behind that comment--It truly lives up to the name 'Epic Flashback'. 10/10
sorry this is so late. didnt see it here until today. wow. ive never heard a comment like that before. especially to a song i made back in 08. now 4 years later, i listen to this, and im not as impressed with it now as much as i was when i created it. because i've grown and learn new tricks and whatnot. however from you saying that its better than an OCR track... that means a lot. altho i disagree, im glad you think that. everyone is entitled to their own opinion. i have nothing against you for liking my track more than an OCR track. thanks for the review, 10, and your time in listening!!
"What Dreams are made of."
You have taken one of the opening themes to a game I have cherished since childhood, and breathed a life into it that has taken it from just being the same loop to adding that little dream-like quality that your punny name for the remix, "When You Wish Upon a Falling Stardroid", hints at.
You stay true to the source, and yet bring something the original lacked--a level of depth.
In short: this is what dreams are made of. 10/10
On the source-to-remix note: I have to say you definitely kept it true to the source.
On the technical details: The instruments work quite well together, and are used to a great potential.
I can't help but feel a little more relaxed and cheerful every time I listen to this remix. I like how you drew a light-hearted spirit from the music.
I think I got chills listening to this remix, which is a rarity. The good kind of chills, mind you.
I couldn't help but imagine all the battles I've ever gone through against Lance while listening to this. You kept up all the energy I would expect from one of the most charged Pokemon battle themes, with that wave of power and emotion sweeping through, building up very well as you get closer to the end of the song (much like they would build during the battle).
Easily one of your best remixes in general. 10/10
