Legend of Dragoon - Rose Theme (PRC339)

2) Popoi - the best produced remix imo - very solid and lots of transmutation and kick ass sci beat and warpy synths...forgot my synth terminology haha. It's just super killer.
3) Dewey Nute - great pitch bending and quite emotive, I enjoyed it a lot!
4) supercoolmike - This is some crazy reinterpretation, cool production - I kinda miss the sad mood that was in the source. The unfinished factor leaves me a bit excited to see what you've got cooked up for "Blooming Rose" - especially since it says "Intrumental" - who or what's gonna sing for ya? So stoked to hear the final thang!!

Dewey Newt - Another slow mix, it seems to work well with this source. I liked the part around 1:50.
GCJ - Funny style, I like it. There's some good variation between the different styles which I liked a lot.
Popoi - You went for a long version. I liked those dark strings in the background, at some parts the song is really relaxing, especially around 2:00. I enjoyed the drum speed up after 3 mins. This song has lots of variation.
HoboKa - Another slow arrangement of the source, it really works well with this source. I can imagine this playing in a game, it's so relaxing.

This was a tough decision! I enjoyed Popoi's the best because of it's variety and atmosphere even though some parts went on a bit too long. I enjoyed 2 & 3 almost the same but supercoolmike's remix got repetitive too quickly for my taste - it might have switched places if he had added those lyrics he said he planned on.

Finally got a chance to listen to the entries this week! Here is my vote with comments:
Popoi - Title definitely fits for your mix lol. Really like all the ideas you had here, and your execution. All your ideas flow together smoothly and naturally feed into one another.
supercoolmike - Really like the Rhodes piano you used for the chords. Gives it an almost FF8 feel to it at the beginning and really brings out the tension in those chords
GCJ - Doesn't mesh too well. Intro sets up slow/chords/pads type feel, then main lead comes in with a rave feel, slowdown back to chords/pads, and then back to rave. Maybe I'm missing the point, but those changes were too sudden for me. Really dig the slow section starting around 1:21 as a standalone, though.
Hoboka - Pretty conservative mix here. Some instrument changes from the original would help add some new sound textures. The addition of the choir was great.

I really like his interpretation a much more aggressive take, a big festival remix
2: Dewey Newt
Soft and somber much like the original, however that vibrating synth he has in there hits me in the nostalgia strings big time.
One of the cleaner sounding remixes, I feel like snoop dog would blaze to this.
I wish we had more entries

GCJ - cool way to try to make the track get you pumped, but they're some instruments used like that one synth that overpowers everything else. it might just be me though.
Popoi - interesting choices you made here. The ambiance gets altered a lot but it also doesn't hinder its feel without anything too jarring. GJ
