I understand Mick Gordon spoiled us with his passion for the game, but now it’s the polar opposite. We get no music teasers, no info, no twitter interaction, no Vines, no feedback is given… Will this change when the game is released or is this simply the style of Celldweller and Atlas when working for a game?
Will we get the full songs released on Youtube? Will the fans contribute to the songs like it happened in season 1 and 2 (PAX choir for Spinal, Christopher de Leon for Shago’s vocals, Omega Sparx with the TJ lyrics, SeamlessR for the way u move remix, the epic covers by LittleVmills…)?
I doubt it. I don’t think Atlas Plug or Cell Dweller care as much as Mick did.
It’s a shame really. They’ve had such a bad reaction to getting hired and they have had such a good opportunity to dissuade that reaction by continuing the teases, tweets, etc. But they haven’t taken it.
Shows a lack of interest to me… maybe it’s just me
not going to lie season 3 feels hollow in comparison to the past 2 seasons when it comes down to hyping us up. I’m still pretty hyped but it felt like with the past 2 seasons there was a lot more consistency. Sadly these new composers only further push that feeling. Mick did have a lot of charm and of course it showed how much of a fan of the series he is as well.
Not every artist is super interactive the way that Mick was. The whole of KI’s development has been a lot more “open” than is the norm to be honest. I’m still continually amazed at how much IG engages with us about, well, just about everything.
It’d be nice if the new composers teased and interacted with us more, but I’m not going to hold it against them.
Im not impressed with the new guys so far…its not bad but it isn’t great…Mick is greatness. When I post a message to him he responds, and is cool. Maybe they will show us different, but time is running out quick!
I’d not even heard of Celldweller until someone mentioned he did a track for Crackdown, after listening to it I worried about the ost for S3.
Do these guys have passion? It’s one of those questions that you would only get answered with an interview. Mick was/is one of a kind in that he interacts with the community and releases little teasers here and there. It was one of the things that made him so endearing to the community I felt.
Every artist has their own way of interacting, I imagine they simply like to keep quiet…which is rather rubbish for us.
Hate to be “that” guy (then again aren’t I always) but I have a feeling the S3 ost will pale in comparison to 1 and 2. I just don’t feel the passion, I hear the tracks and the quality of the sound is good but damn I don’t feel the passion.
IMO Mick didn’t do his greatest either. Most of his music sounds same in my ears (same with cell dweller) Why Did almost all the characters have to rock/metal sounding songs.
Kan-ra (I let this one slide though)
Hisako ( I have very strong feelings about this song and they are not the good kind)
Rash (his theme is okay though)
It’s not the passion I’m worried about but I want variety damn it! Too much rock!
ON TOPIC: Do they have to? Besides for feedback maybe?
Just to be clear, when i said “working on something BIG” i didnt mean that they were busy working on something more important than KI. I meant that maybe they will soon give us a BIG announcement. Like Shadow stages with Shadow remixes of all the songs.
I was being hopeful that they will interact with us sooner. not suggesting the importance of KI.
Well this might be a start of something to change, or it could be very minor lol:

Just had something awesome come through the inbox from @celldweller & @Atlas_Plug. Wanna see it? We’ll show you tomorrow.
I actually think we really got spoiled by mick. It’s surprising me that people think because they are not interacting with the fans that it means they don’t have passion.
Music is music. The level of passion u put into it doesn’t corespond to how much you talk to the people who will be listening to it. It corespond to the amount of effort, blood sweat and tears you put into creating your vision.
I remember in S1 I had talked to mick and we got into a short conversation about how and where he went to to get the human leg bone horn like instruments found in spinal’s theme. Yes it was amazing how he talked to me about that kind of stuff even when he didn’t have to but real talks even if he decided to not tell me those things it wouldn’t detract from the amount of passion and effort that went into spinal’s theme and other themes as well
