Description

I’m not feeling like writing anything long or detailed here, so let’s make it short and straight:

-my longest remix ever (7:20)
-progresses a lot during that time, starting as an ambient, ending up being a spybreak styled breakbeat
-inspired by Amon Tobin’s soundtrack to Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
-is very high quality, so be patient when downloading
-I’m eventually going to remix all of JJGBA tracks

There. Got any questions, feel free to ask.

This is genius work here.

I’m going to start off by saying the music for Chameleon world is among my least favorites on the Jazz Jackrabbit Advance soundtrack. This is however my favorite JJA remix, which isn’t that hard to be since only 3 exist (all done by 2xGJ no less).

Onto the review. Now I’m not some music analyzer like say Joseph Collins, I’m just a guy who knows when he digs the sounds he hears and when he doesn’t. And this guy dug this sound. Part of the enjoyment was that spark you get from hearing something different, which can help a bad song be tolerable, a good song sound amazing, or let Ron Jeremy rap his way to 26 weeks on the top 50 charts.

That’s not to say that if this song wasn’t a Jazz Jackrabbit Advance remix it’d get a lower score, far from it sirs (and womans). This remix is really good stuff, with the style progression feeling extremely natural and never jarring. The music’s inspiration comes through wonderfully and creates a remix that would work ingame a lot better than the original.

So, in closing, if you like JJA’s music, or if you like Splinter Cell’s music, or if you just like music in general, download this now and you won’t be disappointed.

It’s time for a new twist on an old favorite… Time for a new rating and review system! Shew…it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these… I wonder if I still know how? o_o;

==================Simple Review==================
Base Score: 5/10

Point Bonuses: +4
(+3) Decent selection of samples for the tune. All seem to fit the atmosphere of the tropical planet of chameleons. The samples and the notes seem to mesh together very well.
{+1} Despite the source material being repeatitive, this is not.

Point Deductions: -1
(-1) Some of the samples are a bit too sharp which gives them the illusion of being “too loud”.
(-0) I don’t deduct for this, but at 3:59, there’s a noticable “stumble” in the song… Like it’s “hanging” or something.

Final Score: 8/10
I’ve never heard the music of Splinter Cell, but to me, I can honestly say this sounds like something Alexander Brandon did. And in saying this, I mean this very much in a good way! It sounds like something from Unreal Tournament, another favorite game of mine! Some parts are a bit questionable, such as the samples around 2:33.50 to 3:05 and at 3:59, there’s a rather odd breakbeat glitch that sounds like the song hung, I notice. Other than that, I say “well done!” The music works very well. Most of the samples and notes mesh together and give a really atmospheric, but overall, it’s got a pretty decent sound to it.
