This was a song I loved from sonic 3, and it is slightly under-rated in my opinion. You don't get many remixes of this zone especially, so I'm glad to have done this remix. Lots of panning as usual, and lots of sound fx. The piano part is where I would take the song, if ever they did a remake, and If i was asked to do the music for launch base.


Yo, this is really good! I hate remixes that sound nothing like the original. This sound just the original but... well better! Awesome job!

Putting it into my own words and not trying to be like the last reviewer. This is one awesome funky as hell remix of the best Sonic 3 stage. Not to mention it sounds more Michael Jackson like then ever in this rearangement. That said I love it to pieces. Keep making more songs I can get down to!

Who's Bad!

Thank you! I have many more sonic songs on the way, and im glad this launch base remix sounds like MJ's work, since the Sonic 3 soundtrack was based off some of his work. :)

Wow. This is exactly how Launch Base should have felt like! Let's get into a serious review before I start swooning..

Well, this is a Launch Base Zone remix. But what a remix! Instrument choice is well done, every instrument and sound effect is seamless and are in harmony, despite their wide variety. This gives the Launch Base tune a very catchy effect, with a slight groovy effect, emphasized by the drums and hats, as well as the sound effects. This sets a fun and positive tone which I would have never expected to work so well with the LBZ tune. The wise use of extending the main melody instead of following the original song's sudden breaks helps with the seamless feeling and actually helps the song being even more enjoyable; since there aren't the breaks one would expect, the song surprises you and keeps your attention; and the only time a break is noticed (at 1:53), it's not a sudden song stop as in the original; it's a violin... riff? Wow. Did NOT expect that, in a good way!

My only complaints would be that the fade-out is a bit too long, and that the song, dragging itself until 4:13, is a little bit too long and repetitive, but this isn't your fault; it's LBZ's that's already repetitive by nature. Otherwise, it's very well-made and this is a seriously underrated style. I'll end this with a personal note. I often roam Newgrounds Audio and sift through the well-polished generic turds to find THE melodic pearl; and this time, it seems I've found another! Great job there, feel proud and keep it up. Have a well-deserved 5 from me.

Aaah man! Wow, I'm over the moon my remix got a really positive, and intelligent review! I was very surprised again to see a fantastic review, and truthfull decription, this track took a lot of work, and judging by this review, it has paid off big time. I'll be lucky to hity the jackpot and get a review like this again, kaosuKaiari, big thanks for the review bra.

This stage isn't very well liked and the theme is probably the weakest in the game, but you made it way more awesome than it has any right to be.

Cool. Your piano sounds amazing
