Final Fantasy 4 'Gold Chocobo's Casino'
Cute lounge take on the Chocobo theme - don't think we've heard anything like this in the many remixes in various FF games, though this would fit right in. Anyway, it's a nice remix, but kinda repetative and the sound quality sounds a bit muddy to me. Still, if you like the Chocobo theme, go ahead and add one more inteperetation to your collection, cause this is definately worth at least one listen.

hehe, I love the little 3 second intro, very jazz like, and enjoyable! I think this is a fun little piece, and very well done. I'm a big fan of the piano in this one, I think the little soloing in the background is perfect! :)
A fun little relaxing lounge piece. I find it nice to listen to at night. The vibe lead sounds less human than the awesome piano or the upright bass, but overall a very beleivable, well done mix.

Hmm, well, I can definately see the appeal if you're the mood for simple lyrics, that for sure, but I personally wish that it had more to it.
Not really diggin this one honestly. The chocobo theme in itself has been so remixed by the creator that just giving a new style to the theme isn't going to cut it. Combine that with a jackhammer approach to the melody on the xylephone or whatever percussive lead it is, and the cut before the fade at the ending, and it's not going to be something i like. The backing piano playing is very nice, as are the bass and drums, but the source combined with a horribly distracting melody sequencing just kills it for me.

Little too mechanical for me. The xylophone (doesn't sound like a vibe to me) is much to dry in terms of interpretation and humanization that I almost immediately lost interest. The jazz style is a nice idea, but the relaxed feel with the harsh lead is too much contrast.
This reminds me of those bands that play background music for those restaurants in hotels, which , judging by the title, is what the remixer was aiming for anyway. :nicework:
I don't really care for the lead xylophone, but that's really the only thing I have against it.
Overall it's a nice track.

This sounds like a lounge jazz backing track with the chocobo theme pasted onto it...bleh.

Hmm, piano feeling really rigid to start things off. Arrangement is pretty minimal and is basically coverish, with some extra piano notes. Sorry, couldn't really get into this one... there's just nothing interesting going on for me.

Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of this one. As others have said, it's mechanical and hardly incorporates any new ideas to the arrangement. I do like the flourishes of piano, and if the mix weren't a little over a minute, I'd say that would have been a perfect angle to flesh the music out with.
Nothing really took spark here, I'm afraid. If it weren't for that piano, the lead xylophone would have led me to believe the Chocobo theme was ripped from Banjo Kazooie.
