This song is quite literally indescribable. Naming it was the hardest thing I have ever done.

Honorable mentions:
- "Full Metal Frog"
- "Baron Bullfrogs"
- "Pokéfrog Red"

None of those seemed to quite do it, though... and neither does the title I settled on, but at least with what I picked you get the intended attitude...s.

Anyway, this started out as a request for Frog's Theme from Snipper64, so here's a shout out to you, bud, and I have to thank you for starting me down the path of the most random f**king remix I have ever created.

Enjoy. Damn.

Oh my days.

One thing about your remixes is that they always send a shiver down my spine.

The instruments and beats you use are always perfect. You put a lot of thought into your craft. I love it!

Well played Bitium, hope you come back to music soon.

...the only thing I can say is that I love all the remix jobs you do. Period.

The Champion of Toads!

Well, after hearing your lovely comment about my critique (which I always TRY to give out good ones) So I decided to give you another.

First of all, very VERY interesting choice of music selection. Never would I guessed in my wildest dreams that not only Frog's theme and FF4 go well together but add in the Pokemon TGC?! That deserves props!

As from what I heard after listening to Raving Mad, I noticed that you added that same subtle transitioning from one game to another. Clearly blending is your strongest point as this one gave off the same beat, keeping the basic rhythm going. In music, it's always good to learn how to blend properly and when it is not alright and this shows that you CAN do it!

Now, even though the basic instruments that you had; a synth, guitar, etc. helped with the blending, sometimes they made it seem too... monotonous to play the same riff at times. However, for the most part you were very spot on, especially when you started getting about halfway.

Loved the switch to more power around 2:24, and I ADORED the sheer power of that last bit of Frog's theme. Made me actually do the thing that my music teacher would do and jump up shouting "Now THAT'S what I wanna hear!"

!0/10, I can't give you any less because you know what you're doing! Great creativity in the picking of music choices, loved the power at the ending half, even though to me the beginning seemed to drag a bit.

Love this stuff and hope you make more in 2010!

Keep up the great work!

Good to hear from you again!

I will be honest, after putting this up I really didn't know what I thought of it. It's much more artificial sounding than I'd like it to be, and there are parts that just... bug me. However, I'm really glad it struck a few good chords with you and I do enjoy reading your reviews.

Don't know when my next bit of work will be up, but one of these days I'll get out of this ditch of no inspiration I'm in the middle of.
