What started off as a formidable Tepid collab, with TO on beats, was further enhanced by pixietricks' vocals. This FFX mix intros with dramatically minor/major chromatic cross-panned piano that has enough intricacy and depth just by itself to really grab you, but things just get better from there, as Lee's drumwork comes in, followed by Jill's vocal. The ReMixer writes:
"I've always been a fan of Hamauzu's work, especially his part in FFX. After listening to his Piano Collections on Via Purifico (and learning most of it from the sheet music), I was compelled to pick up my acoustic and play along with it. As I started recording, the piece shaped into something more Mitsuda, so I added a fretless bass and later brought in some slide guitar for the sake of it."
This material is more harmonically challenging that anything Tepid's tackled, arrangement-wise, to date, and aspects of the progression descend or ascend unexpectedly, but the ornate instrumentation and flowing arrangement handle this fluctuation gracefully. It's certainly dense stuff, though; anyone looking for something relaxing or consistent might be a bit jarred by some of the intonation and changeups - but in a good way. There's electric guitar as well, and some well-utilized reversed samples towards the end, that flesh out the timbral palette. It's Tepid's most mature piece to date, and while it's still rhythmically static in terms of tempo, there's a very dynamic approach to intonation and sequencing that I think shows a lot of development. This isn't a piece you can get everything out of on one listen, or even two; I'll be coming back to focus more intently on the intervals and progression, myself. That type of depth is great to see (and hear). Larry writes:
"I loved the interplay between the wailing electric guitar, the beautiful piano, the driving beatwork, and the melancholy vocals from 2:28-3:14. I really felt a sense of synergy between everyone's contributions that left me a greatly satisfied customer. Everything was loud and powerful, but nicely balanced to allow the listener to pick up every part; very impressive. Phil, Lee & Jill did a great job lending a much more energetic, emotive spin to "Path of Repentance" that I otherwise thought wasn't possible."
Indeed; repenting's never been this engaging, or sounded this good.
