As we discussed within your other submission (link for the convenience of anyone else), it is exceedingly Rare (pun not originally intended) to find a decent, faithful remix of this tune, as most derivations tend to stray too far in the direction of creative liberty and lose what charm the original had to offer. And that original charm is super important in this case, as this is one of the best - if not the best - video game track ever. As is the case with your other remixes, too, I'm grateful that you merely enhanced the original, for the most part, and left it otherwise very true to the source material. I like what you did with the ending; although it is a slight variation, it is very appropriate. =)

If I were to make one critique about your rendition, it would be regarding the sax (I think that's what it is). For lack of a better term, I might suggest (at least trying) "smoothing it out" - less of a pitch bend, and less distortion. It sounds great for the first few seconds, but then it does a few things that seem startlingly unnatural.

On an less related note, are you familiar with Robert Miles' Maresias? I have to wonder whether he was possibly inspired by Stickerbrush Symphony, as it carries a lot of similarities... It also has (what I think is) a distorted sax, which, to this day, I still don't know if it's a sax or actually a trumpet at points.
(RIP, Robert Miles... I didn't even know until I grabbed that link. ;_;)

Thank you very much for the uplifting comment on my efforts, friend. It is greatly appreciated. If you don't mind me saying, I wish to take this momentary opportunity to praise David Wise for musical perfection in terms of the original Stickerbrush Symphony soundtrack as heard in Donkey Kong Country 2. I have to admit, this was definitely the single hardest track to remaster and it became apparent to me that I have much more to learn in regards to composing musical pieces. One more time, it is immensely appreciated that you've give me positive feedback, and I will continue to stride in bettering myself wherever I might falter in my future projects. Rest assured however, my DKC uploads will more than likely continue.

Alas however, I did rather rush this upload to my Inkbunny account so I apologise wherever there may be faults in the track. I wished to stay truthful to the original, and I believe I've covered that here.

On a final note, I can't say that I am familiar with Robert Miles, and I listened to the provided YouTube link that you left in your comment and I can honestly agree that it holds a strong similarities with Stickerbrush Symphony. So it is quite possible!
