Very classy stuff, great source selections, and a good performance. I'm always down for more Lufia all up-ins.

Check it out folks! :D

Haven't played Lufia. This remix makes me want to, though. Very solid, very enjoyable. Excellent work!

I love it. I heard this a while back on youtube and thought "Now why isn't this on OCR?"
I guess it was just backlogged!

Technically and musically, this is a great listen.

Now I just need to get people onboard for the awesome music in the THIRD Lufia game!

The only thing missing that would make this a Nekofrog metal song is the heavy rhythms and triplets. :-P Those drumbeats are totally metal.

Yesssss I didn't realize you finished this after all. I've been making fun of Nekofrog for months because of the cheesyness of his spoken dialogue in songs... I guess I can't anymore.

Great job, guy

It works better with your line in the FF7 mix.

Dave said it right that Lufia music works really well in this sort of genre. I love the gritty feeling of it, and combining it with the story of the game really adds a lot of emotion. There are a few points where I would have liked the drums to do some other rhythms that would have supported the melody better, but I think they do get the job done as is. Good listen!

Argh.. this theme (and this game) always makes me cry...!!!

There is much emotions in this song (the original and remix) and I keep seeing the ending in my head (one of the rare sad ending in a game!) while listening to this...

Great work, I'll keep this song preciously with me as it's well done and also because, sadly, Lufia is rarely remixed..
Never give up! Trust your instincts!

I remember hearing this remix on Youtube before it was posted on OCR. I thought it was a cover worthy of this site's listing so I'm pleased to see it's here! Good job!

I dont know this game but this remix is sick. Sometimes a bit too loud (@1:15), but still very very nice! Would like to see more guitar remixes..

Love it, plain and simple.
I'm a huge fan of the Lufia series. I even sat through the bad graphics of the Gameboy Color's Lufia 3, and the horrible fail that was Lufia 4: Ruins of Lore just for my love of the first two games. So I'm ALWAYS happy to see more remixes from this series. Always.
This remix in particular grabs my interest. It's not so mellow that it's background music, but it's not so heavy that it gives you an adrenaline rush just by listening. Personally, that sort of mid-way on a very emotional source works perfectly.

As for those who have not played the Lufia games, try them. You'll never regret it. They are easily the best of the best RPGs for the Super Nintendo. Arguably better though less popular than the ever-loved Chrono Trigger. Lufia 1 and 2 are for the SNES, so I'd at least try those. Also, if you're new to the series, as odd as this may sound, play Lufia 2 first, because it's a prequel to Lufia 1 and makes more sense that way o.O

Anyway, amazing mix. Hope to hear even more from you.

Very somber piece; good, but nothing I'd listen to over and over. It's just...too depressing, and the sound of the guitar adds a lot to this impression. Considering that this is what the remixer was going for, I'd say this is a job well done.

The fade-out is weak, though. A piece called "The very end" shouldn't just peter out.
"It won't matter soon anyway, because this forum won't exist. So why don't you just phase out like a good little unmodder?"

I think the ending is fine and this may be my favorite submission of the month!

I would say for the year but its been an incredible year with "Electrodispenser" and "Lonely Waltz" and many more, but I would put this in my faves for the year.

10 out of 10!
