27th: Sonic & Knuckles - Sky Sanctuary Zone
Composer: Tatsuyuki Maeda, Sachio Ogawa, Masanori Hikichi
Score: 74/100 (7.5), Sonic & Knuckles (4/12)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGFkLgTX5uo

How in the WORLD did Sky Chase and Wing Fortress go so wrong, and then Sky Sanctuary go so right?! This is THE quintessential "final journey through the clouds" song, it is absolutely breathtaking honestly how beautiful it is while also utilizing a rather harsh, consistently high timbre. I LOOOOVE the very high "vibrating" background synth as well it's like the slow sound of propellers or something, like time itself is being slowed mid-flight causing the fast whrrrrrrr to become this fast but identifiable beat and that's SOO COOOL what the heck????? You can feel the determination-filled struggle to fight on in the melody and in the chord progression and it's just... an overall powerful song. Really, really great stuff.

26th: Sonic Manic - Hydrocity Zone Act 2
Composer: Tee Lopes
Score: 74/100 (7.5), Sonic Mania (9/28)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gLfTPSTwBQ

God here we have another Mania version that just makes this song sound so damn clean! The upgrade to "real" percussion makes the rhythm section pop out SOOO much it's actually insanity going back and forth and listening to how much it fills in space I didn't even really know was there in the original. The original leads are still f***ing phenomenal in this version as well, which usually is where Mania songs tend to take a hit and feel really muddy, but the new backing stuff that's very, very, VERY far back there at like 0:23 compliment the leads VERY well. Yeah, this is definitely the go-to version for this song; very very good and while it's not at the top of the top like it seems to be for most people, I definitely appreciate it and actually listen to it quite a lot!!

25th: Knuckles' Chaotix - Speed of Sound (Speed Slider Zone)
Composer: Junko Shiratsu
Score: 75/100 (7.5), Knuckles' Chaotix (1/8)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtqLn6mld98

HOT DAMN THAT 32X PERCUSSION IS SO GOOOOD this song showcases it off soooo good, AND it's a downright bop on top of all that. From the intro you know that this is gonna get your blood pumping, then it hits you with its infectious melodies that won't get out of my head!! The melody starting at 0:42 is downright amazing, I love that part a lot and I like how the backing scales get progressively louder and more built upon as the part repeats for a second and third time. This song is just too damn cool, it's an absolute delight to listen to every single time!!

It's that time of the ranking again; time to say goodbye to our dear friends on Team Chaotix and their game Knuckles' Chaotix. I was really impressed by this one; even if a few songs ranked a bit lower down, I thought overall that this game's selection was cool and I'm really intrigued to play the game and see the areas behind the songs! As per usual here's the overview of how everything did:

164th (43, 5.9): Take a Nap (Introduction Zone)
160th (46, 6.0): Labyrinth (Amazing Arena Zone (Lights Off))
143rd (57, 6.6): Seascape (Marina Madness Zone)
74th (64, 6.9): Midnight Greenhouse (Botanic Base Zone)
63rd (66, 7.0): Door Into Summer (Isolated Island Zone)
53rd (68, 7.1): Electoria (Techno Tower Zone)
52nd (68, 7.1): New Moon (Amazing Arena Zone (Lights On))
25th (75, 7.5): Speed of Sound (Speed Slider Zone)
