A little bit too conserved on the range. Too much treble, not enough bass. The original song had that earth-shattering effect that Alter-native describes so clearly, and I don't really hear the immortal bass line thing in this cover. Also, it's mostly my personal opinion, but it's just too techno-ey for me. Something like this could've been done well with a lotta real bass, probably some overdrive guitar, maybe a little of that dubstep, and some synthesizers with more emphasis on the bass end (yeah, I guess I'm a little bit of a bass nut, too).

Gunstar Heroes is my favorite action game. The greatest action game of all time could only be developed by the mighty fine folks over at Treasure. Treasure, the little developer that could, and can, and still thrives today despite being a small number of thirty. Treasure, only they could manage a McDonald's liscenced game just SHY of old school gaming nirvana.
Anyway, I have to say the music in Gunstar Heroes is quite underrated. Seriously, nobody today gives Norio Hanzawa (NON) the credit he deserves! This track(area1) alone is my favorite track out of the whole collection. Nothing gets me more pumped or in the mood to kick arse than this track.
Now considering this remix, it is not as good as the original... But it's pretty creative with its usage of different chip tunes and deconstructive effort non-the-less. I prefer how the original begins with "Da-Donnn!" like bang, and then, how it builds up to the main melody with its intro. This one removes the "Da-Donnn!" bang and gives the build up notes a little more of an ambience effect. Overall, this remix is okay, and I definitely give you thumbs for recognizing genius when you hear it.
Thats one of the best reviews I've seen in a long time just to say =D.
I agree totally, with what your saying. I mean it'll take alot to beat the original. I just purely did this for fun because it's my hobby.
I might make a more upbeat one with the "dun dun" and upload that in the future.
Thanks for your review =D
Very cool song! I have never heard the original song but this one is pretty good! The only thing that bothered me was the drums. You did right by putting 'em in but they sound a little. .. I don't now. Fake I guess?
Aye, hard to get real sounding drums when I can't record a drum kit. But I'm glad you liked! ^^
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
