It took a while for it to pick up... about 45 secs to a 1 minute. When it does, it pretty much hits in an instant. The beat just picks up.
The fact that it's slow in the beginning, however much I dislike slow beginnings, suits the song very well. It's very ambient, very trance-like.
Overall, the song is nice. I feel like it gets too quiet in sections, and in places it's like the only thing that's going on is the 8-bit-ish track, but again - it fits.
Every bit as awesome as the original... for different reasons. :)
Why can't you make work I don't like? WHY!?!?!?!?
Songs for me...
They need to hook me at the beginning... They need something strong, some sort of hype, some energy, something new to bring me in.
Then, they need to keep me.
You, my friend... earned a download within 20 seconds. Well done. :)
The epic squeaking strings did great work, and made things very serene and ethereal, and the constant whining synth in the background did its job as well. Great melody, and everything was kept together to its theme. It was all calm, it was all cool...
and it was all epic. 10/10, 5/5. Thanks for this gem!
I appreciate your review and i'm glad that you enjoyed it! =)
My earlier submissions are much the same, check it out if you want more! =)
There are precious few songs in this world that can give as vivid a picture in my head as the one yours has made.
It's really quite epic. Eggman takes over the world, Sonic comes through and kicks butt, saves tails from being shot in a forced labor camp, and together they liberate the countryside, only to be surrounded by badniks at the last... Sonic dies in the final battle, and tails is left to mourn as the music fades.
Definitely a beautiful piece... I actually quite like it better than your orchestrated one. Its quietness suits this piece well.
I salute you, and your music.
I'm going to agree with the below reviews in terms of rating score... Other than that though, i do have some gripes as to the beginning.
It may be just personal preference, but songs that begin as light as this and as quiet as this just don't really get me motivated... Granted, this is because when listening through headphones, you really want to maximize the time spent listening to music, and minimize the amount of time spent listening to anything else...
Other than that, this song is pretty good. My other gripe is that it gets a bit repetitive, the same general rhythm/instrument pattern gets reused a lot. I don't know if i'm rather *expecting* what will happen next per se, but still...
Nevertheless, a good mix. A+
I think i heard your original...
Funny how it takes 2 searches on newgrounds to find what you want.
Definitely worth a download, and a 5/5+10/10 rating. YOU GO MAN!
I think the triple "sonic boom" melody change was a nice addition, btw.
On headphones, the sound REALLY REALLY hurts my ears!
Putting melodies on one ear or the other is really painful, especially when it's loud and biting like that in the beginning.
Too slow... Not a very good mix at all. Don't know why this is at the top.
Lyrics are good.
However, the atonal rapping melody is FAR more suited to Super Sonic Racing than it is to His World. (By the way, already reviewed said remix, it is awesome).
The orchestral mix of this particular remix would probably be better than the original, or if you added some sort of melody to your rap.
That's actually not a bad idea. Something a little different. I'll have to try that on my next one (if I ever try rapping again LOL).
Thanks for the review
The beginning killed the potential.
You had something from about :22 on. Before that, though, it sounded like you were just killing the midi.
Too short without the beginning to be worth downloading. You had something... revive it.
While it sounds good,
you killed each and every attack in the song i can imagine. No emphasis placed where it should be, which leads to a very bland sound.
I agree with previous reviews, this is better than most, but just too bland. There's only so much mixing of beats/melodies you can do without adding expression.
