Its very nice to see an orchestral ReMix. This is very well done, the source is recogniseable and there is significant expansion on the original. The textures make this track very enjoyable. It does sound as though it could be used seemlessly alongside the game's soundtrack. I'd agree that there could have been a little more melodic writing, but great stuff!

What I specially like about ReMixes is when they have a story to tell, one that I can follow by listening to it. I do think the idea was captured pretty well here, where I feel both the action from the battle and a built-in melancholy in its meaning. Quite great stuff indeed, and I'm looking forward to more!

This is a great debut mix, especially for orchestral; I can definitely hear the story that the Remixer wanted to tell with it. Honestly, the second hawk cry didn't bother me - I didn't even consciously hear it in there until my third listen. I'm looking forward to more mixes from you!

Damn. Way to match damn near perfectly, the state of my consciousness lol. For me, this brings about a tense, urgent feeling with some sadness behind it. I like the arrangement and the production's nice.

Very solid piece man, thanks and great work!

Perfect arrangement. You captured the feeling of tension and battle very well. Easily one for my playlist.

Wonderful piece, this. Oddly enough, this piece now sounds like it belongs in the Chrono Trigger soundtrack.

You did a great job on telling your story through this song's journey.

I like how he got a lot of the original sounds to translate in this re-envisioning. Great stuff! Would love to see a video of this drama!

2nd bird cry aside, your take on this piece was fantastic. I have to say that I used to listen to this specific piece on my FFX OST all the time. I loved it because it was calming and relaxing and thinking about all the snow really sent me back home for a while.

The way that you remixed this was impressive to say the least. The diminished melody, along with the entire tense feeling the entire piece had me wondering where you were going next. True, a little more variety and subtle changes may have made this more INTERESTING, but at the very least, this song is going in my playlist as well. You've done a fantastic job. Congrats on your debut! I look forward to hearing more!

The FFX soundtrack was already impressive and I feel this remix fits right in. I'm very impressed with the instrumentation. Also, the building of suspense and tension was palpable. Very solid stuff - hope to hear more soon.

Cool track. Very good progressions and build-ups, wind-dows throughout. The judges seemed to make note of the mechanical sequencing, but I thought it added to the enjoyment, especially in the beginning.

Funny how I commented on the source a few days ago & how when I got up to Mt. Gagazet, the game broke me, and I come upon this mix. Despite that, I still love the source material, and this mix is a unique take on the beautiful melody. It crafts an atmosphere of an impending battle with its forward moving orchestra, only to pull back near the end into a gentle unknown.

This is a well-done piece overall, and I love it!

Very cool work making this theme pop out and relaying the tense idea of battle into the soundscape. The hawk sounds were welcome. I even liked the second one, honestly. Great arrangement and production, and a pretty good ReMix.
