Story
I know, remixing Turrican 2 themes isn't too original, but the smashing soundtrack just seems to scream "remix me"
The Great Bath is one of my fave songs in this game, so I decided to give it a try. At first I created my remix without any beat at all (didn't think a beat would go well with it) but in the end I wasn't sure if drums/bass wouldn't add to íts attractivity, so I made a compromise... a remix that has a beat included, but only at about half the length of the song. ;)
Hope you like it...
Song was arranged, recorded and played on a Korg X3 Workstation

Well Done!
Great Music. You used nice instruments and it sounds very artistic. Especially good are also the drums which fit perfect to the Piece of music.
Great remix with some excellent instruments used. The drums do need a little work though, particularly the kick, which could do with being less frequently played.
Very good. Drums are a bit out of place but you are talented. Nice sounds...
Made tears trickle down my cheeks. Pure nostalgia...
Nice, nut I dont like the drums at the end of the song. Sounds kinda out of sync!
The drums really dont fit this one at all.. Nice build up, but I guess everyone does this remix in this way.. Even us.. Well.. Not special with this one.
Great arrangement and really nice sounds!
Good work!^_^
Wonderfull interpretation. Awesome.:-)
Quite excellent!
Best version of this track ever!
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the Korg X3 sound!!! Amazing!!!!! So cool that are other Korg X3 fans out there! *thumbs up*!:)
While Mordi's version still remains my favorite version of this particular Turrican II theme, this one is awesome as well.
Hard to mess up The Great Bath.. You do it justice.
An amazing piece of music creation :-)

This is in my opinion easily the best Great Bath remix hitherto. The instruments feel just right, as does the mood (at least until the drums begin). I particularly enjoyed the flute and the choirs/strings. In my opinion the drum section seems pretty much out of place, though. As far as I'm concerned The Great Bath is nothing about rhythm, but all about melody and harmony. The melody carries itself very well without need of a drum beat. But apart from that I have very little to complain about. All the harmonies are 100% true to the original, unlike many other The Great Bath remixes. Great work!
