This was created for an event held by The Sonic Stadium celebrating the 26th anniversary of Sonic and all the music throughout the series. This level and genre were chosen by request. I was more than glad to honor that request. It was definitely an interesting turn slowing it down and yet keeping the livelihood of the original. I had learned some more about LFO and was starting to utilize it more and more. It really brings out that sweet sound that flows, like the vibrato heard when one of the synths is played long enough. Also learned that sometimes layering instruments together can make for a stronger, more vibrant sound, as heard in the trumpets. The Sonic Stadium community sure did love how it turned out. This saw a little success on Newgrounds as it was placed 4th for the week and was also featured on the Newgrounds Home page for two weeks. It had been a while since I had touched this genre. I really oughta do more with this style.

It's a good remix. Don't get me wrong. But the instruments REALLY don't blend well together... The sound honestly would sound much better with some different instruments at certain parts. And also, the first thirty seconds are akin to ear rape. You should remove the first thirty seconds as they really have no bearing on the song and just sound like there should be a few more instruments in there. Once you get into the later parts of the song, it sounds a lot better, but the beginning of the song just sounds really bad in certain spots.

But a 5 anyway. Cause most of my complaining is just me being nitpicky. I'm sure there's a lot of people that WILL enjoy this song more than me. Just because I don't like the beginning doesn't mean it's not a great remix.

It's ok dude. I'd rather hear things I can improve on than hear "this is absolute shit" or "This is the best thing ever". Honesty is the key to improvement. Appreciate the review.

The purpose of the beginning is buildup. I can't just jump into it, especially since its still accurate to the original. It's very crucial. Though you could be right about the amount of detail in that part, maybe adding and changing wouldn't have hurt.

Thanks again for the honesty. I appreciate that. Keep tuned
