The parts from 2:08 onward achieves the sixties-style vibe you're aiming for, but the build-up could use a bit more flash... Try throwing in a "4 cowbell hit" combo once in a while.   Maybe a little more funk somehow too.

oh man I totally forgot to reply to this thread even though I totally love the Hector '87 music

Anyways, this is...interesting! I mean, I can't say it's my ideal Hector arrangement, but I have no idea what would that actually be.

Maybe it's just a problem with my volume balance, but I don't think the original theme stands out strongly enough. Wait, no, distinctly enough. It's hard for me to describe, since I never developed the right vocabulary, but it's too....I don't know. Maybe I expected the percussion and such to change more when the original theme comes in. The...tambourine, I think? That seems like it should change a bit more during the song.

(I really have no idea what I'm talking about)

For a perspective of what I like to hear from arranged music, this is good, but I also like to hear songs go somewhere outside the comfort zone of the original theme. Instead of the fairly straight reprise of the original theme that starts at about 1:56, I would strive to do something unrealistic like mix in a few seconds from History 2/4/6 and History 3/5 (aka the other level themes) before the eight-bit rendition of History 1.

The part of 2/4/6 from '13 to '24 or '25 to '35....History 3/5 would probably be a bit harder to work in..

Yeah, uh..great work! You should probably ignore everything else.

Dammit, McCall, I missed this thread.

Downloading now. Will listen when I get home and don't have to put up with the bullshit radio in the background.

Yo, Conn, haven't seen you online in forever. What did you think of 0080?
