Private albums will still publicly announce game(s) being worked on

63 posts in this topic

I am confused how people can complain about the FF6 project being elitist or snubbing them without actually knowing anything about the project other than the fact it exists.

With some OCR projects there's sort of a common theme for the sake of cohesiveness, rather than it being a bunch of different songs in outrageously different styles, because if it were, what was the point of making it into an *album*? For all one knows there could be a common theme in the FF6 project. Maybe it leans more towards melodic orchestra rather than death metal and screaming. In which case the latter would be inappropriate. In projects it's not always a matter of what's good vs. what's bad. It's just a matter of what fits.

Yes, but this line of thinking would involve not jumping to insane conclusions in bad faith, and we can't have that. :lol:

Ever heard of Symphonic Death Metal ?

you can't typecast me foo!

Wasn't intending to typecast, just using it as an example. As a reverse techno or orchestra would possibly be out of place in a metal album project, depending on the direction the director is taking. It wouldn't be elitism there, it'd just be about using what fits.

I think you're missing the point.

We know there's a FF6 project. We don't know anything beyond it - the whos and whys and the direction of the project. Could be Mongolian Throat Singing or opera for all we know. Point being it's silly to label it elitist without knowing *anything* about it.

Crap, I was hoping for a Peruvian Pan Flute FF6 album.

It's not like 2 of each song would be a BAD thing. I'd love to hear more than one arrangement of every track on the FF6 soundtrack.

You're right. We should wait until it comes out. :)!!

You have fun with that.

Agreed!

@Bahamut: Ah, I was considering accepting WIPs privately...but I was under the impression it's best to link them on the thread so that they can be publicly evaluated?

Nah, don't do that - get some private forums and have mixers post the WIPs there or something. Don't post them publicly though, they spoil the songs and the mixers probably rather have finished products public not WIPs.

What are the 'other' secret albums? I see some project sub-forums with ambiguous titles.

Apparently, there's a private Chrono Cross album in the works...

It's been on the list for at least a month. I don't care when it's coming out, I'm already excited :-D
