Effin' SWEET!

The previous rock album was kind of hit and miss and the sound quality was ass, but this sounds very promising.

Re: We Are Rock-Men

That preview sounds epic. As a fan of the previous Rock CD's, warts and all, I think I'd have trouble breathing if this one is meant to be MUCH better.

We'll see.

The Rockman series has yet to win me over but that track is nice!

Sounds way better than than the lousy 20th anniversary arrange albums. Any idea who's playing?

Agreed! That sample just gave me chills.  Now that's how a rock arrange should sound.  This has way more potential than the 20th Anniversary CD.

Rock-Men are:

Guitar: Masahiro Aoki
Bass: Yasumasa Kitagawa
Drums: Mitsuhiko Takano
Keyboard: Azusa Kato (Guest Musician)
Guitar: Reo Uratani (Guest Musician)

Not familiar with any of the names, aside from Masahiro Aoki (aka Godspeed). It'll be interesting to see how this one turns out, as many have reflected already, I wasn't a big fan of the 20th anniversary rock album.

Really lovin' the sample! Definitely keeping an eye on this release.

Yea, you ok, Adam? I'd say you were eating too much crap US Corn, but I know you don't live in America...

Re: We Are Rock-Men

Tracklist revealed (includes four tracks from the SNES MMX trilogy!) and the official site has a few new samples up.  Armored Armadillo Stage and MM3 Ending samples, oh man! smile

The Armadillo and Ending samples are marvelous, but I'm not sure about the other, more techno-ish two. I certainly hope the other Darkman arrangement is more rocking, as that's one of my all-time favorite MM pieces.

Ballsy of them to do Armored Armadillo again since it will be directly compared to this somewhat superior version they published earlier (though the new one is pretty good too):

The RM3 ending is nice, but the Flash Man one was nothing special.  I remember liking the Dark Man one when they originally posted it, but I can't get it to play right now.

At any rate, this album is a must buy for me and I hope it's the start of a series.

I love the Rockman X album, but this is a very different style. I don't think they're really comparable. And how cool is it that they're covering a Rockman Dash tune? More Rockman Dash love please!

Re: We Are Rock-Men

Ooooh, I am LIKING that track list!
Although, seriously, ENOUGH with the Cut Man remixes already.

Agreed. And glad they didn't cover Wily Stage 1 from Rockman 2 on here. Love that song, but we don't need another rockish one after 20th Anniversaries.

Actually after the 20th Anniversary ones I kind of DO feel like we need another one.  I don't know that I've ever been fully happy with an arrangement of that one.

Re: We Are Rock-Men

Really?  The Wily remix on The Power Fighters was pretty good, IMO.

Re: We Are Rock-Men

Here's the Rockman 3 Stage Select arrange.  I approve.

Oops, forgot about the Power Fighters version.  You're right, I do like that one!  Man, I'd love a copy of that CD someday...

I concur as well about the Rockman X remix, seeming as that is more jazz/jazz fusion based. Plus that CD is long out of print, so many people might not have heard it before.

Looking forward to the CD amazingly a lot!

Re: We Are Rock-Men

If they nail the MM6 Boss theme, this album will be an instant win in my book.

Re: We Are Rock-Men

Just ordered it from Otaku.com this morning!

I'll write up my impressions shortly after I get it in the mail!

Re: We Are Rock-Men

Hear them all before yours arrives.

Some surprises within... opener track featuring a rap intro with the "Across the Border" rapper from Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom.

Some tracks are brief.

X tracks are just badass.

The "Legends" track gets a little jazzy...
