I saw you describe this as "minimalist" and thought, "What the fuck is HoboKa typing about? This has everything going on. It's groovy and then some!" So, since I hadn't played Earthworm Jim in ages (unless you count Clayfighter 63 1/3), I decided to give "Snot A Problem" a listen. It's one thing to just tell myself, "Yeah, Tallarico is an excellent musician." It's another to go back and remind myself as to why I know that. Yes, your version is definitely minimal in comparison and hearing the original reminds me of how underappreciated the soundtrack is nowadays.

This is an easy five stars from me. My only complaint is seeing Super Nintendo in the tags, but not Sega Genesis or Sega CD. The music originated on the Genesis and both Sega consoles offer a significantly better listening experience by comparison. (The SNES version sounds muffled or overly compressed or something. I don't know.) Sega CD, unsurprisingly, comes with the highest sound quality, but the Special Edition version also includes the fewest "HEY!"s, which is the best part of Snot A Problem. Seriously, why did someone decide to just omit nearly every "HEY!" when porting the song to the Sega CD, Alex? I don't understand that.

HoboKa responds:

It's minimalist because it has only a bass, piano and pad. I guess the drums count as a fourth layer lol. But I suppose that isn't really minimalism. Oh well.

I omitted the Hey's too, apparently. I totally forgot they were in the source. It wasn't really about a 1:1 cover anyways. Not the intent of PRC.

True on the Sega stuff. But I played EWJ on the Snes first so, nostalgia goggles. But I do have both EWJ and EWJ2 on the Wii and they are Sega ports. The FM chip is unique for sure, but I like my muffled slightly higher-fidelity of the Snes. True, both soundchips have better iterations for other games, and I guess EWJ suffered for it. I kinda want to try out the Sega CD version.

reminds me of 90s arcade racers. that bright lean is soooo clean you killed it!
