Again, I'd just like to say Starbase - Percursors fucking rocks.
I especially like the part from 4:20 to 5:30

An aural masterpiece.. very original and just really good to listen to.. I listen to it even out of game.

Under A Red Sky and Mine the Heveans are both excellent along with Exploration. Rough Repair and Outfit are ok but I miss the machine sounds from the 3do versions and they are a little electonic for my tastes.
I don't like the new Starbase commander music, not because it is bad but because the original is my favourite in the whole game and SC2 just isn't SC2 without it. Same with melee although the first couple of seconds are pretty bad IMHO.
The ditties are the only thing I really don't like. Too many weird noises and echos. There were a couple I didn't mind but I can't remember them off the top of my head.

My review of ditties

Androsynth: fits well
Arilou: fits well
Chenjesu: fits well
Chmmr: fits well
Drudge: fits well, but I would prefer more "drum like" melody
Ilwarth: fits well
Melnorme: fits well
MMrditty: fits well
Orz: fits well
Pkunk: fits well
Shofixti: fits well
Venedictor: fits well
Spathi: fits well
Supox: fits well
Syreen: new melody, but fits well
Thraddash: fits well
Umgah: fits well
Utwig: fits well
ZoqFotPik: fits well

Slylandro: sounds well, but doesn't fit well for a computer controlled probe
Uq-Quan: it's not bad, but I would prefet deeper tones like in original
Kohr-Ah: Evil Organs from Space, good for comic relief (BOW! The DEATH is here!), but doesn't fit well here
Yehat: too dark, doesn't fit for bird-like race (more like some dark off-shot for SC4)
Vux: flute doesn't fit to Vux
Mycon: gains worst ditty award


Bonus ditties:
Pkunk: good alternative
Shofixti: good alternative
Spathi: good alternative
Umgah: good alternative
Utwig: as good as original remix, maybe even better, since it's without those "strings"

UrQuam: sounds same as original remix
Ilwarth: bad, at least it sounds evil
Tharddash: doesn't sound right
Tharddash v2: maybe too much drum-like
Vux: ugh... bad
ZoqFotPik: don't like it

Slylandro: suits more then original remix, I'll use this one as replacement
Yehat: better then other original remix, I'll use this one as replacement

Syreen should have the same melody as original, except for the additional (more dominant) harp arpeggions following the chords. Also ending a bit different.

Bonus urquan is pretty much same, only difference is in the stereo picture/width which is wider in the version which is in the add-on zip.

Nobody's mentioned the Umgah "noitacifidoM citeneG" mix in the bonus pack yet. It's great fun. I'm still trying to ascertain its correct temporal orientation. Grin

I have no means to verify this, but I think that its just Umgah song played backward.

Actually, it's a pretty neat (and slightly weird) Umgah mix played backwards. The easiest way to listen to it forwards is to load it into a sound editor with OGG import (e.g. Audacity), reverse it and listen to the result.

Is this how you do previews, Mark? Smiley

You forgot to review one ditty mates. The precurser ship ditty! So I will review it!

It is nice, but not masterpiece and it sounds the same. Besides the quality of the sound is better I prefer the older one, it just sounds better. Sorry.
