Damn . . . you all will wish this ReMix were a lot longer when you hear it! AmIEvil sent this in - in addition to doing many great ReMixes on his own, he plays in a band, and while on stage they sometimes play videogame 'jingles' to entertain the audience. Well, this little 'jingle' kicks major ass, especially for being live. We're talking high-quality eletric guitar lead with grit, very dramatic drums, and nice backing synths in this ReMix of Red XIII's theme in the valley. Pound for pound, one of the best ReMixes on the site, considering its size - definitely grab it! Yeah.

This was one of the first mixes that I heard that got me into this site. The guitar is so awesome! The only thing bad is that it is way too short. Also, isn't this a remix of Cosmo Canyon? I was trying to find this song and looking in the Cosmo Canyon remixes but for some reason this one is under a song called Valley of the Fallen Star which isn't in the game.

Very nice soundscape here. It's full but not crowded. Gritty guitar harmonics, present but not overwhelming percussion, and at 0:36 that bass guitar really shines.

Alas, so short...

nice track, pretty standard cover though, and short to boot. I like it, but I am surprised this one made it past both lockdowns.

Glad it didn't though. :) At the very least this is incredibly enjoyable and the guitar tone matches the feel of the source impeccably.

I keep imagining ol Red in a more humanoid form sporing an Old West outfit complete with 6 shooters and sheriff Badge walkin into town when I hear this theme. Yes it's short, an A-B repeater is useful for this. Good work.

Short, and way too underdeveloped uninterpretive, but the guitar tone is really nice.

Are you evil? Yes you are. You submitted what is arguably the greatest sound on this site and you only make it 1:18? That's just evil. How could you torture us like this?

I agree. I have this track in the middle of a Cd of awesome OC FF 7-9 remixes and this one always makes my mind scream "awesome awesome awesome" over and over and then it just ends. One of the best songs I've found on this site.

Wow, one of the best remixes on the site. One problem, and it seems that many agree...too short!.

I can see the majestic Red XIII walking to this mix. Very good work!

As a guitarist myself, I say that, in good old English, "Bloody good show!" Awesome sounds coming out there. Me and another guirist friend of mine transcribed this ourselves. Its a good mix to listen to and play to :D

Wow. I was like whoa, when it just started all of a sudden, but really, we should demand that AmIEvil submits an extended version cuz I guess we are all itching to hear more after hearing this uber-sweet guitar work (understatement, yeah)! The best of yours, I've heard, AmIEvil!
