It's missing a driving power behind it.
The guitars should be complimented by stronger percussion than what you have. The drums and hihats sound muted, and that's not a good thing with this.
Not only that, but a single guitar underpowers it further, when the original melody had orchestra hits and some sort of synthesized instrument.
Yes, I've seen two, maybe three Actraiser "remixes" so far that have managed to be WEAKER than their 16-bit original counterparts.
I like guitars, but I dunno if it works w/ this...
I just can't seem to get a good feeling from this song. I think this is probably just one of the few exceptions where guitars don't really work at making a song better. Sorry... :(
i hear lots of songs in the portal from old enix games,
but not one from illusion of gaia...
oh well, great song ;)
