Reviews for "Ice Cap Final Act"

Not often...

...But sometimes I come across a remix that deviates from the source material a decent bit without losing the sound of what they're supposed to be remixing. This does that very well, keeping the original theme while adding something completely new to the mix, with a story to boot! I like the visualization you put in it, and it helps me understand the feeling of the song as well. Nice one, it gets a download.

LightKeeper responds:

Thanks a lot. As I progressed with this one I just felt as though it had a certain finality in its feeling, so I put that into narrative and that seems like it's gotten across to people fairly well. It gives the song some purpose I guess.

The first thing you said was the intention behind the mix. I made an Ice Cap remix a long time ago on another account and it was received too well. One of the biggest, and probably greatest, pieces of criticism I received accounted for the unique sound in this remix. The reviewer wrote something on the lines of, "When you make a remix, add your own tastes to the song." What he said applies to all remixes. If the song isn't enough of your own, then it is more of a remaster than a remix, isn't it?


what u said is true... what if another act????

LightKeeper responds:

It'd be awesome. I'd say they should remake the old games with voiced dialogue and a 3D environment, but they'd probably screw it up.


That is the best! I'm a sonic fan and i love this song!

LightKeeper responds:

Great! :) I love you

Nice, but...

I just really wanted to hear that awesome chord sequence a little more clearly. Ya know? The one in the beginning of the level when he starts snowboarding down the hill. I hear a bunch of triplets over and over, but no solid melody. Just a bunch of high pitched noises. Then the refrain comes in and sounds pretty good. I just miss those chords I grew up with.

LightKeeper responds:

I know what you mean. But it's a remix. If you want to listen to those chords over and over with the same melody that you grew up with exactly as it was go and listen to the original or look up another generic remix. I'm trying to deliver an interesting interpretation of the song. The triplets give a better introductory feel.

Thanks for the more detailed review. Always appreciated.

It Nice!

The only Problem i see, is the fact the song is a Bit Disorted!

LightKeeper responds:

Yeah.. I notice that too everytime I listen to it again. I hope to go back in the future and fully complete it because this piece really is awesome.
