“The Sound of Speed” Proves Too Fast For The Naked Eye

Huh. Feels like I just wrote about this. Oh well, doesn’t hurt to let everyone know that OverClocked Remix‘s latest album The Sound of Speed is now out for your listening pleasure. Available as both a direct download and as a torrent file (if you want to save their bandwidth and pretend it also helps the environment), all thirteen tracks on the album are full of Masato Nakamura goodness. Sure, you may find some of the arrangements aren’t your cup of tea, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to at least download and give it a listen.

Oh, look at that, it’s Tuesday. Man, if this was Sonic 2, I could make such an overused joke!

OCRemix: “Above the Sky,” a Solo Piano Arrangement of Sonic 2 Ending

I don’t know how you can make the ending theme of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 any more moving than it already is, but talented remixer WillRock has managed to do it (and here I thought the live, vocal track was epic).

A classic piano solo in what sounds like a limitless space, “Sweet Sweet Sweet” gets re-arranged into something even more magical.  After a great intro (which, to the keen ear, is the intro of Sonic 3′‘s Angel Island Zone), the melody we all know and love kicks it and is it ever chilling.  This remix is easily one my favorites and you’d be a cynical bastard if you didn’t download and like it, too.
