Mario Bros 2 - Ending Theme (PRC361)

Shid0 - Liked the use of the rock style to this source.
RonaldPoe - Like the combination between the 'light' samples in the front and 'dark' background stuff. You really managed to use the source in a nice and varying way. For a 'quick' remix I liked that there's an ending.
Starphoenix - Nice style, good usage of the source in an effective way. Liked how you alternated the bassline during the source. For some reason I get an 'OC Remix' feeling with this song, great work. Only the ending could be better.
Kat - The jazzy style in combination with the flute at the end (or is it something else) is coal.
Liked the combination of songs in several different styles. I hope everyone sleeps nicely and doesn't have any nightmares from Wart (or my song).

Love what you did here. It has quite the atmosphere and the soundscape is nice, sound like an old series with the bass at start. It sounded a bit weird at times to me tho (at about 24s for example, it seems out of tune) ! Loved the chiptune bits too. The amount of variety in this one is really good. #1 !
This one really is lively, it makes me want to jump around like i am retarded for some reason. It's also pretty different and a bit on the dark side at some points, love it. #2.
Even though you probably could have taken this further indeed, this sounds really good, even though the song structure is exactly the same. It's a shame you didn't have more time for it, i hope you will indeed rework it and am eager to hear the result. Still enough for #3 imo.
I like what you tried to do with this, especially loved the clapping that started 8s in. The sound is really wet tho, especially the reverb on drums. It feels like it's played under water. Also the percs starting at 49s are out of tempo. Still a nice contribution tho but i can't really put it above the others, sorry !

Shido - I love the idea but unfortunately the guitars and drums sound more like a sketched out idea than a polished piece of work.
Starphoenix - Grooves really well and I think the lead part that starts at 1:36 sounds fantastic. My only complaint is with the drums coming back in at 1:07 only to fall out again so soon. I think you could have waited until 1:16 to bring them back in.
RonaldPoe - Needs better EQ: I think you really need huge boosts to everything above 2000 hz. I made some EQ edits to your file on my end and it sounds a lot better. Also, stylistically I would like to hear more variations throughout. Listen to Starphoenix's entry for an example of what I'm talking about - I think it has a lot of well timed great ups and downs. Thank you for making the lead clear and up front this time!
bundeslang - Wow, this is great! Really original take on the source, and I really love the..."drop" sounds throughout? I don't know what to call them but they're everywhere from the very start. For me they conjure the image of using a pipe in a Mario game.
Kat - Love the orchestral take and the transition to piano at 0:40. The trumpet sounds a little off though, I think, and the flutes at the end have some clicking and sound like the exact same samples repeated over and over again.
