This is truly a beast of an achievement. The ratio does not lie. But you feel so damn proud after getting this! :D
Main point: you need to gold star all the archives on BOTH Normal and Hard. Hope is excluded from this (thank god!).

Gold star means 100% purification and more than 800,000 points (if playing with controller; for Kinect it's 500,000).
My suggestions are:
1) Be very comfortable with 100% purification, meaning know all the little "danger" spots for each level (such as killing someone either too late or too early). Check out the solutions for those 100% purification achievements, that was the help/boost I needed to make it work for me. Here are a few pointers on the "danger zones":

=== MTX
Area 3 (red squares): You must have 84% after killing the last wave of red squares. Killing the blue sphere to the end gives 16%.
Area 5 (4 red orbs): Make sure to kill the last blue snake in time, in order to get two big purple snakes.

=== EVO
Area 3: Those spinning purple enemies are annoying. You have to be very precise on timing with the last wave of those.

=== BTY
Area 1: After the two butterflies, the three flowers that release 8 enemies each. Make sure to octo lock and kill the enemies first and then kill the flowers. If you kill the flower too early you won't get all 8 enemies => will count as a miss on purification counter.
Area 3: The 8 enemies that come out in a spiral shape. There are three waves of those. Make sure to kill them in time, because if you don't they just get buried back into the tunnel. If you are too late you might still get the perfect octo-lock, but your "bullets" will be too late in reaching them before they burry again. Just make sure that your purification counter increased after killing them.

=== PSN
Area 2 (speedway with gates): After the 3rd gate, you get 6 and then 8 red dots. I personally used a euphoria here, because it was too annoying to try to kill them all in time before they fly away. Plus euphoria took care of the last gate too! ^.^
The rest of the level is hard, but everything is visible, so you just need to be fast enough (but don't forget about the beat!) ;)

=== JNY
Everything is very straight forward from the purification standpoint. Only the the "evo" themed area there are enemies that might get away from you if you are too slow, but otherwise you are just fighting bosses. Can't miss anyone here!

After being able to purify the socks our of each archive focus on keeping the beat and creating the cursor movement pattern from enemy to enemy.

2) Created mental "check points" at some Areas of the archive to make sure that you have enough points to make it to 800,000 in the end. The checkpoints below are very approximate, they are plus/minus 50,000 on either side. Sometimes you might do bad with normal enemies, but perfect with boss fights and still get 800K in the end, or vice versa, messing up bosses fights will put your efforts to waste.

=== MTX End of Area 2 (before red squares) ~ 130,000
=== MTX End of Area 4 (speedway) ~ 250,000
^^^ No Euphoria used (+100K)

=== EVO End of Area 2 (many little fishes + snakes) ~ 300,000
=== EVO End of Area 3 (with purple spinning enemies) ~ 400,000
^^^ No Euphoria used (+100K)

=== BTY End of Area 2 (before the tunnel) ~ 300,000
^^^ No Euphoria used (+100K)

=== PSN End of Area 5 (mirrors) ~ 600,000 (I was not planning on octo-locking the final boss because its too hard and used 1 Euphoria previously)
^^^ 1 Euphoria used in Area 2 (+50K)

=== JNY End of Area 4 (running men) ~ 350,000
^^^ 1 Euphoria used in Area 5 (+50K)

3) Lastly, practice, for the love of god, practice... and know that it's possible to get this cheevo, just might cost a bit of your sanity! ;)

Wishing everyone lots of patience!!! Please let me know if you have questions/concerns before down voting.
