More Cave Story remixes, yay!
As a person who remixed three Cave Story tracks (in MIDI) myself, Grasstown included, if you want a critical review, then here goes. =)
I like your take on the original Cave Story track. Instead of following the exact same rhythm and melodies, you made your own and truly made it your remixed version. The new instruments supporting the main melody has also been given new lines themselves and it really makes it all sound so complete. And it has this techno feel thanks to all the instruments used. The constantly changing filtering of sorts on the main melody and the panning on the bass makes it sound very space-ey. And the variation of the last part wasn't too shabby either; in fact it sounded like a very interesting twist to the original! ^^
The rhythm of specific parts ruin the balance. I'm talking about the one that starts at the very end of 0:11. It was supposed to have one quarter rest before continuing, but that shouldn't have been a problem since it's a remix after all. The result of that cutting however led the main melody part to be off the 4/4 time signature that the bass is constantly providing. This results in a later part starting at 0:40 to have a really out-of-place bass note that just sounds for a quarter note and nothing more, whereas if the original melody rhythm was kept it'd probably be a half step.
I hope my review helps, it'd be nice to hear improvements of music that's already pretty cool.
(And if ever you want to check my remix out, it's called "Town Of Leaves". Scary red text doesn't allow me to post an outside website, so I guess you'll have to do some searching if you really want to hear my take on it ^^;)
Hey thanks yeah i did have some problems with the melody being correctly placed but i got tired of it and really frustrated so i released the demo...i plan on taking all of the reviews into consideration and really remix this track into a great song. thanks again!

Well thanks I'll consider that i guess. =]
