This definitely took me back to my youth. I loved this game more than anything else that I played on SNES. I know that I beat it at least 4 or 5 times in a span of like three years.
Although its been years since I last played this game, if your rendition can take me back so vividly to playing this game, then it certainly has a certain air to it. There's not a single thing that I can think of to improve on, to be honest with you.
10/10 - 5/5
This is also the first song from Newgrounds I've downloaded.
Thanks a lot iband! Yeah, I beat the snot out of this game as well. Tristam was my favorite because of the ninja stars he had ;)
Just awesome. I don't have a whole lot to add.
thnx for the score
i didn't understand that thing about kevin bacon... :S
Not bad at all
I have to say that, as a whole, it was a pretty decent bit of work.
There were a few times that it sounded as though you got out of time between the two tracks, but that could have been the reverb and phaser effects playing tricks on my ears. Either way, it did give a bit of that impression.
I wasn't a HUGE fan of the tone that you used, specifically on the rhythm guitar. It may just be on my personal preference, but I think that the rhythm guitar could have been improved by being acoustic. Perhaps even playing the part twice, once on electric and then on acoustic, and layering them appropriately.
It was good overall, and I think any kinks that it may have could be in the editing department, because you sound like a very solid player. Editing is a whole different story and can be the most annoying thing in music.
Keep up the good work, man.
thanks a lot, i appreciate the feed back
Not a bad start...
For this being your first piece, it came out quite well. The biggest issue that I can see in this work is that the instruments don't sound all that real, but I've commented on a few people's work with this same issue. It's very hard to find worthwhile digital instruments. So no worries on that.
There were a few places where this work just didn't seem to flow with itself, in my opinion. It just seemed that some of the instruments seemed to be fighting each other a bit more than they were flowing.
As well, don't be afraid to add a lot more instruments into the work, as I have to say that to a degree it sounded rather shallow at times. Experiment a bit with reverb more, that can usually bring a bit more life into a instrumental.
The last thing I have to mention is at around :46 there was a glitch in the audio. This could have just been from a bit of corruption, but it distracts from the piece a little bit.
Otherwise, good work man.
Thank you very much for the critique. I'll definitely keep this in mind for future compositions if I do decide to make more.
Aside from the fact that it creeped me out a little bit, it was quite good.
All of the instrumentation flowed, in the best sense the word can be used in this case, rather well. Enjoyed the broad range you went through in this song.
I have to say I could imagine this in something of a Tim Burton-esque movie.
Well, I had me some Edward Scissorhands in mind while I was cooking this particular dish. I'm sure you know what my secret ingredient was.
Whenever GameFreak decides to make yet another remake of the classic games, they may want to really consider using this, or at least draw some inspiration from the work you've done here. It's absolutely fantastic.
You did a very good job recreating the original into something that was both recognizable, but still very original. I find when most people begin crossing genres from classical to anything this side of techno/trance/house, they tend to lose the feel and emotion from the original number. You did not.
Because of that, I can't help but feel you pulled off something absolutely wonderful. 10/10!
Overall, I have to say that this piece has a rather tranquil feel to it. Just peaceful, with small bit of darkness decorating the edges. It's still very simple piece overall, but it comes off very well.
More than anything I love the tone of the piano. I don't know if you used a digital instrument, or mic'ed an actual piano, to be perfectly honest. Very good word.
I don't believe I can come up with any more words that can really describe this piece.
Thanks so much iBand!
When I listen to this, I get the sense of a battle. It's not hard to imagine this being the battle music for an RPG, especially against a major foe.
I liked the way you mixed this. That bit of ambiance that you gave it made it sound like it was recorded using a real orchestra. It sounds almost distance, but in a good way. I thought the mix as a whole worked well, nothing seemed out of place or too overbearing.
Thanks for the review and the good score :)
