Sonic Rush Music- Freakishly Awesome

Status
Not open for further replies.
Okay, for those of you that haven't heard Sonic Rushs music, you really need too. It so amazingly different to music in any other Sonic game.
Back to Back
Certain tracks, Back to Back (water on the American site) in particular, you will really recognize. I know I've heard it before; everyone that I've asked says that they have heard it before, but nobody seems to know where it is actually comes from originally. Because of this though, it is just EASILY going to become one of those tracks that nobody will forget. It'll become a legend in the same way that Green Hill Zone has, and Ice Cap (S3 genesis, not PC) has. It was thought to be used on the Jungle stage at first, but has now been confirmed to be used on the Water stage. I personally think it fits the Water stage better than it would have the Jungle stage. However, it would have made a great theme-track for the game. The words Back to Back would seem to go well with the Sonic and Blaze thing. Not only are all the tacks great, but B2B is by far the best.
Right There Ride On
Right There Ride On (Jungle) is another brilliant track. If you listen to it you'll see that it fits the Jungle stage, and this is the track that is actually used for it. The track has an almost westernly feel to it; but is done much better than the tracks on Colo. It has a great feel to it and its very likely you're just gonna find yourself tapping you foot to this. For some reason, as well as seeming to fit the Jungle stage, this music just seems to be shouting out Blaze at the top of its voice. It has some nice, cool mixtures between fast pace, and some parts that just seem flat out Sonic-ish. And by Sonic-ish, I mean that it really seems to be clasSonic game music. The words you hear mainly in this piece will leave you in laughter, or just feeling plain weird. It left me just feeling, well o_O and my friend was in hysterics for at least five minuets. I highly doubt that this track will be remembered in the same way that B2B will, but it is great none the less.
High Altitude
On the American Rush site, there are two more long tracks. The first one being Desert, with is actually used on Altitude Limit, rather than the desert stage itself. It's another track that I doubt you'll get enough of. For those of you that have played SA, you'll know how good the music was on Sky Deck. Now High Altitude seems to shadow Sky Deck. It's awesome. And like the Jungle music, it has some parts to it that sound really clasSonic like. Especially the bit you get at about 34 sacs in, and the last part of it before the track ends. Especially the bit you get at about 34 secs in, and the last part of it before the track ends.
Boss Music
The Boss music is far better than Boss music in other Sonic games. (S3&K not included =P) It has a great pace, but sounds again like another track that shouts out Blaze- just not as loudly as RTRO. From about 37 sacs into the track, it sounds like the music I would expect to hear on Water Palace. Just awesome.
Ethno Circus
Vela Nova
Some other tracks include Ethno Circus and Vela Nova. Ethno Circus is rather odd name for the track on Mirage Road (desert stage). My in-hysterics-friend described this track as chavs, that were in a circus that was in the middle of a desert. Vela Nova Sounds so, well cosmic. It's quite cool really. I could see it being used on some sort of space or casino stage.
So then people, you can tell the ST for the game is pure and simply awesome. It's just so, wow! Discuss.

I have to say that after listening to all of the music, I have to agree with you that it is not like any other sonic music which i have heard. Here are my opinions of the different songs.

Back to Back
It does sound a bit familiar and it is kind of cachy and is probably my fav out of all of the one you have shown. I think that if the water stage is something like to one from sonic 3 it will fit perfectly with all of running and sliding.

Right there on
I do noy know why but I am reminded of the machine level from sonic 2 when I listen to this song. I think that it may be because of the sirenesque sound and ... well ... I dont know but this is also a cachy tune.

High Altitude
I do not know why but I am not too keen on this tune, but it may be just the first part. So far into the song is just sounds like a sonic song. I do not know wheathere I can make my mind up about this song.

Boss
I think that this song seems just right for its purpose. It has that kind of suspence feel to it and reminds me of the feeling you get when you are almost there but not quite. I do not know if this is the best boss song in all of the sonic games but it is good.

Ethno Circus
This defenatly sounds like a sonic sone too me. I think that it is cachy but i could tell you more if the demo was longer. Or is that the whole song?

Vela Nova
This also sounds like a sonic song, but again I cannot really make up my mind until I listen to more of it, but from what I have heard, it sounds suitably for the game.

I know that this game is all about speed, and that is reflected in the music, but I hope that the music is not like that throughout the whole game. I like it, dont get me wrong, but To be listening to that for upto 20 hours of gameplay, I think that it would give me a headache. I just hope that there are different types of music as well. All in all, I think that the music in this game will be a BIG aspect of the whole thing (I hope that makes as much sence to you as it did to me).

Oh and, thank you for posting it.
 
The four tracks that are on the American site are the only long ones we have. The others, Vela Nova and Ethno Circus, are just short demos. You can hear a longer Ethno Circus via a movie on IGN.

Also, it seems that Blazes music is different to that of Sonics. There are two new movies on IGN of Water Palace, and the music is slightly different.

It could be that both characters were on seperate acts. They've been sticking to the formula of each act in a level having a slightly altered theme for a while now.

Personally, I like the somewhat trippy tracks they've used for this game. On one hand its not the sort of music I've come to expect from a Sonic-based game, but on the other hand it still manages to retain the same feeling of a Sonic game (most likely because it reminds me of CD's japanese soundtrack to a certain extent). Especially the boss theme, which is a particular favourite of mine.

Its a shame they didn't have the Casino level's theme music up there. That was probably my favourite out of all the ones I've heard thus far. Loved the 'Go! Go! Go!' in the bg. Launch Base nostalgia indeed.

The music was being composed by the guy who did Jet Grind Radio and Jet Set Future so that's why the music is clearly different then tradional Sonic music. Plus it's like the Japanese Sonic CD music except more...Jet Set Grind style which is good since I loved those two games and their music. Plus the boss theme just screams to me bad ***! This is what I managed to hear what the song says.

Go ahead! Go ahead! Go ahead! Go ahead! Go Ahead! Go ahead. Go ahead and Scratch Me!

Well, IGN did compare Sonic Rush's music to that of Jet Grind Radio, and I now see why.

PS: JGR/JSRF's music was great, except for "Birthday Cake"...

The music sounds similar to that of Sonic CD's Japanese track and Sonic Adventure 2. But I'll be damned, the music is quite awesome.

I have to say that this is definatly one catchy tune. And it seems so sonic like to me at least. But after puuting it on repeatably, it does get tiresome. I cant wait to hear the full tunes so then I can make my minmd up for sure. Thanks again for the tunes and keep us updated on them.
 
All the tracks we've heard have been added to the first post. Blazes B2B sounds cool. I haven't added it because it's a movie.

Ethno Circus PWNS you!

I can't wait to hear what they sound like in real life though.

Biggest understatment ever. 'Birthday Cake' was PAINFUL.

Anyway, I'm still a little sceptical about Sonic Rush. But at least the music is pretty awesome.

So far, Sonic Rush is shaping out to be incredible. And this is coming from a guy who ain't liking the direction Sonic's been heading since Sonic Adventure 2.
