Ok, now you can rate it as game remix, if you want… BTW, you really CAN RATE IT, if you will so nice ;p…
OK, my first review on J2O version 2. :P And probably my last… Maybe I’ll just do music reviews from now on, no more levels or tilesets :P
Ok, what we have here is (yet again) a Tubelectric remix. We have what, 5 of them already?
Sigh, lets get it over with :)
When I first listened to it, I was expecting another Xmas remix of Tubelectric (the third one
.;) Made me wanna scream “Tubelectric is a christmas planet!” It actually isn’t a Xmas remix, just a normal one… not that bad tho, I just wanna hear a remix that doesn’t sound like christmas.
Melody and tempo
The original Tubelectric song (song3 for the ones who are unaware) had a melody which fit together, the “stages” as I call them now create a “story” of the planet (for lack of a better term) when put in order. But in this remix, everything is just thrown together. It looks like the tracker / artist just created each part and randomly placed them into the song. Result: a song that doesn’t make sense.
Another weak part. A good remix has samples that fit in with the theme. In this, I mostly heard… bells! Yes, bells! I don’t recall seeing bells in Tubelectric :p This fact really made me think it’s another Xmas remix. There are some synthesizer samples in the background, but they don’t help much.
No new parts were added, so no comment.
As you can probably tell this remix could a lot of improvement. If the melody was more like the original and not thrown together, and the samples better chosen (electricity in the background for one, hard beats for the melody itself), it would help a lot.

The beginning is quite dull. Pattern by pattern, new bass lines enter, and we hear the ol’ Tubelectric BG all the time, which sounds annoying in this remix. When the bass is hot (at least it is compared to the beginning, if this was supposed to sound like techno, it’s too silent), the main Tubelectric line enters, with a very good electric sample. Point for that. Next we have the lead sample, which sounds a lot like another X-mas remix… The rest is ordered quite interesting, I like the way it goes.
So, I can’t really tell what was the idea of this remix. Techno or x-mas? It’s bad when put in one of categories, and isn’t awesome as a hybrid either. Therefore, I have no idea what level would use it. Just for listening? Maybe, but some samples are annoying. The melody is the biggest upperhand. You may download it if you’re curious… but sorry, no candy.
Okay. Before I get into the review, let me just be not the first, nor the last, to make a request. Stop. Arranging. Tube-freaking Electonic already!!! That goes for the rest of you people, too! I can see why Violet gets so irritated. . .
A weak version of Tubelectric, the single-most arranged piece of music in the history of Jazz Jackrabbit.
Boring. Tubelectric as it’s always sounded, pattern-wise. Nothing has changed at all. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think this might even just be a simple pattern shifting and sample replacement.
The samples used are good enough. A little annoying during some of the more complex parts, but otherwise fine.
Not worth a download, much less 162.(At the time of writing this.)
YO man i love this song=) the begining isnt so great though. i can say the drums are the biggest part of this song because they were my favorite thingies. the complex parts were relly good too =)
calm down tube electric is like the best i can help but bob my head. im a huge fan of tube electeric ;)
