Get this off the All Time Top Scoring list..
Don't get me wrong, this is hilarious and the animation it goes along with is fantastic, but seriously, this needs to be off the All Time Top Scoring list for the audio portal. It's so highly rated because of the comedic ANIMATION that went along with it, and all the fans of the ANIMATION coming here and rating 5, it's not like this is some masterful piece of genius that rivals the skill of Beethoven. The animation deserves it's praise and high scores for being an original, funny, well animated idea, but this seriously doesn't deserve to be one of the highest rated tracks in the audio portal, when there are FAR more deserving people like NemesisTheory and Paragon. I myself wouldn't even consider this music.
Maybe you should just add a download link for this in the animation or something, since I know there's really nothing you can do about people rating this a 5 because of the animation. I just find it a shame that this is being carried to the tops of the Audio ratings by the animation it was in, especially considering it really isn't even music.
5/10 JUST FOR THE SONG ITSELF, all it is is vocals tied to a beat, but a 10/10 for the song + animation it was created for. Fitting to the animation, but as it's own song it's not that great.
I must say, I'm impressed. Usually music that starts off like this does doesn't keep my attention for very long, but I kept listening to this one, and boy I found a snazzy little track that I'll be listening to for a time to come.
Despite the fact that the song is repetitive, and the transition between the first part and the second part isn't very smooth (fast paced techno-ish feel, one line of drums, then oriental,) I enjoyed every minute of it, although I DO think the first half of the song was much better, personally. It created an intense, fast paced song that would be awesome to listen to while doing, say, parkour, or something similar, where the oriental felt kinda out of place with the drums and other various sound effects at times.
I do agree this would work well as video game music, and if my plate wasn't totally full I would be very willing to collaborate on a game using this music track. Sadly, however, I have too many games in progress right now, and I don't need to be adding another one to the list. :\
If I get some free time, I'll let you know, we can plan some stuff out, maybe get this kickass soundtrack something to go along with it. Until then, you'll have to survive with a 5/5, 10/10, fav, and a download :D
Keep up the good work, I look forward to hearing other tracks from you.
..Are you sure you didn't somehow rip this song from a megaman game? D:
This is absolutely amazing. If you hadn't told me before hand I would've thought this was from a classic 8 bit Megaman game.. it's absolutely amazing. It's got the sound, the feel.. I can even picture Megaman running and jumping through a level, shooting at the various enemies that get in his way, all to combat the robot master at the end of it.. And I tell you, this would be an awesome level, if it existed.
Your composition skills are incredible Paragon, I REALLY hope you do more work in 8 bit. Hell, you could single handedly provide music for a Megaman game, and nobody would know the difference between it and a real MM soundtrack. NOBODY I TELL YOU.
It doesn't just sound like megaman, but it sounds, as the person below me said, like pure, pixelated bliss. There is no other way to describe this masterpiece.
5/5, 10/10, fav'd, downloaded, etc.
Excellent job, PLEASE do more 8 bit remixes if you have the time :D I'd love to hear the other masterpieces you could come up with.
