Awesome!!!

Blake Perdue did an excellent job with both composition and samples.

Although the violin and clarinet could have been live, they were well-programmed and sounded quite good, so IMO, they don't take away from the score.

10/10 :D
no sig for a bit

- violinist for 9 years so far
- also plays clarinet + bassoon (needs to get a bassoon though)

Sometime ago I had the opportunity to hear this in its early WIP stage, back when it was called "Gates at the End of Time". I had no idea who wrote it, or how it managed to get into my collection, but at least now I know just where it went.

And I'd also like to echo Shna's comment about how amazing a creation Blake has created at the age of 16. Blake, you should totally get your school orchestra to play this song.

I'm really not much familiar with the game. Never noticed this project as well. I will be looking for the Red Omen's Song. Heheh nice.

This is an awesome new mix from Blizihazihadablake too. I love that part at 1:28. Very soft. This mix have more variations than the original.
The instrumentation is pretty neat. Production is well placed. Nothing boring here. Great stuff.

This mix is just all around ass kicking goodness. I love the change-up at 3:34 (though it feels a bit too short) it's so danged funk-tastic.

Wow man. I enjoyed this all the way back in the WiP stage, and the finished version is fantastic. 16? Woah, I'd kill to have your skill NOW, and I turn 19 a week from tomorrow. Nurture this gift, man, 'cause you sure got it, and I look forward to your future efforts.

A great choice to open Chrono Symphonic.

They grow up so fast!

This is excessively boring to listen to. I cannot imagine how it could not be boring to create.

A snippet from my review of Chrono Symphonic on Mr Perdue's track:

I wouldn't have counted Door to the End of Time to premiere Chrono Symphonic on the OCR front page, but after, actually listening to it, one realises its flair in using several source tunes to recreate Chrono Trigger on the silver screen. From the interesting intro to the fading ending, the transitions help capture the feeling without being too long or tedious. I've always liked Set Sail, and to see more from Blake is a treat. Nice work.

I've been saying it all along that this was the track I was most looking forward to for this project because a) no one seems to cover End of Time and B) Blakey is TITE.

I saved 4 WIPs of this song pre-release in anticipation.

I'll make this short:

I am seriously underwhelmed -- and, in fact, a bit disappointed.
I'm so not totally impressed.

Ditto. I'd love critique, and am always willing to improve my stuff. I was afraid some would be disappointed by this, and my fear was confirmed (if it was on the arrangement aspect of things.)

I'm a little surprised that this song, out of all on the project, made it here, since some of the others are really fantastic. As for this song, it's decent, and the quality of the samples is good (but then, judging a song by the quality of its samples is nearly as bad as judging a game by its graphical content), but the arrangement just completely loses its energy around halfway through the mix (Around 3:40). The next 10 seconds are positively bombastic, and probably should have been thrown out of the mix.

Overall, the first half is good, but the second needs work.
