The beat slightly makes me think of The Prodigy at the start. Then the rest of the song makes me think of F-Zero GX music for when you are racing against others.

The synth guitar is a pretty nice touch to the song and makes it sound futuristic. The bass line remains simple and very loud and pumped the whole time. The trumpets sound pretty good and make me think of the Runaway Five from Earthbound at the same time. The drums lastly have a good beat to them that sounds a lot like a real drum kit.

I like the ping pong effect that the synth carries at times and the synth solo wasn't a bad touch either.

Overall, great song for racing.

Driven by the beat.

A very nice track, that gives a good atmosphere, kind of the sort of thing I expect in certain rooms of a Zelda-like game, from the 1990s, if I'm honest. Don't get me wrong, that's not meant to be derogatory, but it's what I thought of, when I first heard it.

As Jazz goes, the drums were a little too regular - everything should be composed as it runs along and that gives it a very abstract quality. The drums seemed too generic to really get off the ground, while the sax and the synths seemed brilliant, the bassline pumped, but that and the drums seemed to get away from what I think of as Jazz, myself.

Still, a nice break from having to listen to Dubstep for the RRC, I suppose :P Keep them coming, this shows a lot of promise.

I like the rhythm of this song very much. It's a very driving beat and I can imagine listening to something like this while driving through the city at night. I also like the mixing of this song. Every instrument can be clearly heard, even when there are more instruments playing at the same time.

I don't like the sound of the Saxophone too much, though. First of all, it sounds too artificial to me. Also, I don't like the sounds of Saxophones in general.

But overall, it is a very good song. It is very diversified. It never gets boring in the almost 6 minutes it plays, and that's something that isn't easy to achieve.
