Gotta agree with ellebirdy23, for the most part.
You used some good quality instruments (samples, whatever), but it was pretty much just a re-do of the original with a newer sound engine. I really like what you did with the piano in the background, maybe you could expand on that? I dunno, but I'd definitely be looking forward to an original take on this great tune.
Remember: good covers make you remember the originals, but the best covers make you forget them.
You Did A Good Job ReDoing This Song
Here's my score:
Instrument Blend--- .5/1
Clear Concept ------- 1/1
I agree; the bass may be just a bit too loud. But that's easily fixable.
You were right on the dot with this song's melody.
The song didn't feel compartmentalized or kind of "slung together." You made it fluid and complete.
This is where the points come off; the song was literally a Reenactment. There were no changes of beat, no original harmonies. I think I could find another remix like this on Newgrounds fairly easily.
I know a lot of the remixes out there are just simply to re-do the originals, and that's probably what you were going for; it's just not MY style. So keep that in mind with this review.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
