The title's clever, but I didn't take it as any kind of play on words on the common street-slang euphemistic phrase traditionally looking askance of a man of African-American descent....I could almost see Belthasar working on the Epoch, and giving this command to a friendly servant Nu.

Oh, and the mix is good, too. Don't hear enough takes on the Battle theme, instead of just being inundated with Schala everywhere...

Chrono Moonstone is pretty much my favorite piece on this site, so this doesn't quite beat that, but it's neat to see Sam redoing the Chrono trigger theme.

This piece is way more medlyish than usual for OCR, but it's incredibly well arranged and performed. How anyone is be able to perform those Gilgamesh arpeggios without any flubbed notes is beyond me .

Edit: Also, those strings sound really good, and the instruments are mixed really well.

This. Yeah, it's tough to beat. But this is still Shnawesome. I don't hear a whole lot of string quintet accompanying a piano, and it creates a really neat soundscape. And, of course, the sheer piano skills make me look at my inadequate, clumsy hands and cry.

OH SHIT GILGAMESH. That just happened. I almost never look at the source list because I love getting surprised, and that was cool.

So good!

This is honestly my favorite remix of all time, ever since I heard it on DoD. So well arranged, so well performed: immensely skillful both on strings and piano, yet very emotional. If you keep on making stuff like this I can die happily.

Yeah I agree with Kuolema, this is DEFINITELY more Medley than OCR usually allows, but it's also Shnabubula. So I can understand how that happened. This is a great ReMix, I don't remember it from MAGFest, but it's nice hearing now as if it were fresh. The strings seem sequenced but have good articulations. The piano seems quite dry, which is really noticeable during the arpeggios at 3:09. As a whole, I think more could have been done with the effects and EQ to make the mix more refined.

This.
You can say that again.

But yeah, this mix is very good too. It's got a serious case of medleyitis, but is still very enjoyable thanks to the brilliant execution. Great work!
