Engaging and bouncy. I like it. The instruments are interesting, and the form is well done. There are so many remixes on Newgrounds, though. I'd love to hear an original from you. Btw, the drums could've been stronger/ more engaging, even if the focus is on the melody. Loops well, but at the same time a little repetitive. Despite my criticism, nice job overall, and hope I'll hear from you soon. :)
I'm sorry dear. My passion has never been composition. Ever since I started making music it was out of a love of classic video game tunes and a desire to create my own twists to them. That being said, you probably won't see anything truly original from me unless it's a collaboration. It just wouldn't be as fun or interesting for me--I need to be able to feel passionate about what I do, or I won't be able to keep doing it.
The drums tend to be a little lackluster, so I struggle with finding a balance between making sure they don't ever draw the focus and making sure you can still tell they're there.
A great version of the song, it instantly took me back all those years ago to when I first played the Pokemon series. I thought that the use of the X1 guitars was a good call. I'll be honest and say I'm not quite sure what that means but I do know that the guitars where a definite highlight.
I could really see this being used in some old style Pokemon parody.
The X1 guitars, ESPECIALLY the distortion guitar sound just... They have a very different sound to them. Compare Storm Eagle to one of the guitar heavy X2 or X3 boss stage themes to see what I mean.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
