This is just kind of a loose, acoustic interpretation of the first Brinstar theme.

Nicely done man. : )

Very chilled out

Made me feel really relaxed so thumbs up for you :P I haven't heard the original brinstar but this is just awesome, sounds similar to an artist called Nujabes. Good job dude, keep it up :)

From 0:13 onwards...though it might not be recognizable at all until about 0:33. The truth is that about half of this song is original but I thought it fit the mood,


Definitely different from the other Brinstar remixes I have heard. Rather than an epic remix of it, it's a gentle, relaxing version of it.

I like it!

Really good job! Loving the way it sounds!

To be honest, I didn't recognize this as the Brinstar theme until it got to 0:36. Not a problem though, as the beginning was great.

No problems whatsoever, although maybe an addition of other instruments would be good.

Yeah, there's nothing even remotely Metroid-related until 0:26, and then Brinstar comes in soon after. The intro/outro just kind of establish the atmosphere a bit. I realize it's a bit sparse...I was going to add bass, but I was modeling this on my Kraid's Lair cover and I don't really like what the bass added to that song, so I decided to leave it out.


Sounds great! One of the better interpretations I've heard. Keep it up!

diferent aproach

The idea is good but I segest a diferent aproach, I mean brinstar is a epic kinda tune so If you can bring the epic melody a litle more energetic it will be great

AceIH responds:

This song was all about the approach actually, I was purposely trying to keep it ambient and dark...I know that's kind of at odds with the original song, but I don't really see that as a problem.
