Same. That song from the first level of Sonic Spinball makes me feel very nostalgic every time. I feel like he would have done a good job on writing music for Sonic X-treme, but it would have had a different style than music from past Sonic games.
Yeah, but to be frank, every Sonic game nowadays has a different sort of music style, so it wouldn't be that out of place compared to later games if it had been released. Adventure has rock and roll, Unleashed is more orchestral and epic, Forces uses a lot of techno, EDM and dubstep, etc.
Also, you should hear Drossin's Sonic album, Virtual Sonic. It's really good! Makes me wonder if some of those tracks were to be for X-treme...
EDIT: Found out that isn't the case, the tracks were recorded three years prior from when the album was released according to Sonic Retro. Oopsiedoodle.
