What do you guys think about Ocremix?

I looked for a topic of this, but there was none to be found on here. Now I can assume that some of you are familiar with Ocremix if your not. Your going to have to look it up. I enjoy some of the songs that they released. In fact they even made a couple of remixes of the Monkey Island series.

Favorite songs from these guys anyone? I'll post mine after I do some thinking.

  • @MusicallyInspired said: Heh. I was asked if I wanted to do a remix on the FF4 album but I declined because I don't know the games that well. Thought it would be safer in more knowledgeable hands...guess not.

    Also, a whole bunch of fans recently got together for Metroid's 25th anniversary and recorded a 2-disc remix album in celebration. It's not on OCR but was rather put together by Shinesparkers, but a lot of the big names from OCR are there like Mazedude and even Stemage of Metroid Metal made an entry. It kicks Relics of the Chozo's behind in oh so many ways.

    Harmony of a Hunter (Video Preview)

    From watching that video I've come to realize that, among others, I'm a big fan of DarkeSword's work: Harmony of a Hunter @ 2m07s

    I mean, I've already favorited this Zelda:Wind Waker remix of his: Ancient Hero


    EDIT: Okay, I've downloaded Links Awakening - Threshold of a Dream, and it's pretty good so far. Granted, I haven't listened to all of it yet. One of my favorite ingame Zelda tracks is Tal Tal Heights from Link's Awakening, so it would follow that one of the first tracks on Threshold of a Dream that I would listen to is Climb My Mountain, This High and I love it.

  • I've never understood why everyone loved Tal Tal Heights so much. I mean, it's not bad, but it's not incredible either. Yet it gets so much love. *shrug*

    Threshold of a Dream is one of the best albums they've released. So awesome! And melancholy at times.

    I think it just has an adventuresome sound that translates well. Gets your blood going. Or did for any young'un.

  • Just started listening to Harmony of a Hunter.

    Whoah.

    I haven't heard the Metroid intro song in a looooong time. It reminded me of something I couldn't quite put my finger on. I've wondered for a long time what it was about the new Metroid games that just didn't feel right, and I have two words for it now: Dread, and Space.

    The intro song combines both. It has that fantastic, otherworldly feeling. It's a space song. I can't define what that means but it has that adrift feeling... that lost in the cosmos, an infinitesimally small component of a large and hostile universe. It is grace and beauty wrapped with inevitable fear, because death can be close by. Which is summed up in the Metroid.

    This take on it is good.

  • My favourite tracks so far are Solitude, MQ2 (Metroid 2 Queen Battle), Metroid Medley (the chiptune one), and Parasite X. And that's only the ones I can remember. So many are good. Those stand out the most to me, though.

  • I dig Solitude. For the most part I'm digging the more majestic numbers on there... sort of sweeping songs.

    Kraid's Campfire Ballad rocked my world en route to the bar.

  • It's been what, 10 years since I last visited there, and burned my own Zelda albums? I'm guessing it's changed a lot since then.

  • @MusicallyInspired said: The only thing I was extremely disappointed about with Project Chaos was the Ice Cap remix which was just classical piano. Totally was wanting something epic out of that. :p

    It's my second most favorite in the whole thing. It was pretty epic, if a little too fast and hasty for a piano solo -but I guess it would be pretty BORING if it was like another piano solo because it's videogames I guess. Much more epic than some rave upbeat techno shizmissile, which is like the majority of OCRemix's music library, if you ask me.

    The one track made me extremely dissappointed was the one for Final Boss. Its intro is like... "get'em glowsticks ready and hit the beerbong". Whatever. It's a much more kickass theme than that.

  • I wasn't asking for a rave upbeat techno shizmissile version. There's enough versions of that particular song in that style on OCR let alone other songs. But the piano was just...not what I was expecting. I mean, I dig the talent and appreciate it but piano-only music has always bored me.

    Also, they did Lava Reef in the exact same style.

    Another great song on Harmony of a Hunter is "Into the Green World".

  • Into the Green World is definitely awesome.

    Oh and about piano... I played it for 25 years so I'm always a sucker for it :)
