Let me just first say that Mirror's Edge is AWESOME. Definitely one of the most unique games I've played in years, it's just too bad it's pretty short (but still very replayable!).

The music in this game is really good, I don't think anyone couldn't get around it if you've seen any trailer. So here's my contribution to the amazing OST of Mirror's Edge!

well..

I guess this is fine... but i am so confused. What happened to all the other genres? 25/30 songs on the "Best Tracks Ever" is in the Video game genre... if i see a new song in the "Best Track Ever" i usually check it out, but it has become boring cuz its all in the same genre...

More Trance, Dance, Drum 'n Bass, Techno or Rock, Pop, Metal or Misc or whatever.

Didn't like guitar/drums, overall great track

I was really like it up to the grungy guitar that came in. Never heard the original but the power chords just didn't match the mix. The guitar solo was good, may have even been better alone. Beautiful song without that.

The drums at 1:17 were... well boring. So generic sounding for such a unique track! They should have been much stronger at this point with that guitar coming in. Of course not everyone can't go out and record real drums, but they sounded to synthesized - no variations in the snare, only subtle velocity difference. The rest of the drums weren't too exciting but fit perfectly for the atmosphere and sounded great.

The synth the enters at 0:37 and 3:12 is awesome, I love it and it played well, especially when it first came in.

At around 4:40 some of the instruments sounded like they were clashing for amplitude, only lasted for a few seconds and wasn't too detrimental. Great ending to the piece. Giving this an 7 because I very much like it, but lost a few points from me because of what is mentioned in this review and the fact that its a cover of a video game song.

well you can't please everyone, right? that's the cool thing about having an opinion. :P I personally think the guitars match just fine!

about the variations, that I can agree with, but like I said in a few reviews before, having it variate sort of took attention away from the foreground for some reason, whatever I did I couldn't get rid of that... sooooooo I'll have to see about getting some new rockish drum kits to help these out :P

also, demerits for it being a cover?
you ofcourse realise this is the videogame genre and it's 80% remix, 20% original, yes?
h well. :P

Thanks for the review!

Good but could have been great.

I really enjoy the beginning, a little bit less when the guitar start though.

Also, it's a little too long. I get tired of listening to it before it ends. Every time I listen to a song of this genre, I try to imagine scenes in my head. I go non-stop until I loose the buzz of it. In this case, i lost it around the middle part.

This is good, but why settle for good when great is available?

I see myself a lot in your music, when I listen to it. I don't listen to what it is, but for what it can be. I'm very strict with your work because I hear things that I don't hear anywhere else and I like that.

I'll have to try Mirror Edge now.

NemesisTheory responds:

Yep, it happens!
I knew when I went with the celldweller approach not a lot of people would like it, it's sort of an acquired taste really... i can listen to the song for a long time really, but I can understand your issues with it quite clearly :)

it's just that the opinion of 'good and great' varies between people, I thought it was pretty great myself when i was done with it, and apparently a lot of other people seem to agree with those sentiments, there's just no way someone can create the perfect track.

if i did things your way, there's no doubt other people would say the same things you are saying now but only in a different context, you understand what I mean? :)

anyway, thanks for the review and yes, do try mirror's edge! :)

sry

song quality sounds kinda bad, it sounds like its straight out of fruity loops, but to be honest ideas arent too bad, you just have to fine better samples/software instruments, the two worst sounding ones are probubly the drums and the lead voice that comes in early in the song,

but other then that not bad, its kinda weird that you put a heavier part in the song, but I guess you can say its progressive metal, but of couse then you bring up the argument that its far too simple musically for that genre, and theres 2 much synth,

i hate to be like that but i figure its better then "WOW GREAT JOB"


NemesisTheory responds:

i found that funny because nothing i used was basic-kit FL. i think you have bad ears or something. the drums aren't from standard FL at all, and the voice was recorded... you thought it was fake? lol. that's kind of "epic fail" right there lol. XD

anyway... i dunno, i find this review pretty conflicting. :P
still, thanks for the effort!
