I'm not sure who all this is directed to, hopefully they will see it and know.
Chrono Trigger was the first video game that I ever had a true connection with. The story was so caring, and the characters were so memorable, it's the only game I can still pick up and play at almost any time.
That said, when I stumbled upon this project, I was very excited. I downloaded it, listened to it, and I can honestly say a few things.
1. Everybody involved is extremely talented. No need to name anybody specific; everybody involved should be proud of what they have created. Chrono Trigger was the first game that made me cry, and some of these tracks sent me back to the first time I played this wonderful game.
2. This has got to be the most amazing fan project ever. To take music from a game and recompile it into a modern form is one thing; but to extract the themes of each track and create entirely new songs is just outstanding.
I don't feel like writing an in depth review, I don't think it really fits the project. Is it perfect? Of course not. But neither was the game it was based on and I still loved it.
If I could have one request, it would be to have "To Far Away Times" slightly altered. I don't really like the japanese section of the song. Not knocking the vocalist, her voice is beautiful, I just think it kind of interrupts the song. But that's just my opinion. I realize there is a specific reason it was done, I just thought I'd put that out there.
Anyways, thanks to everybody involved. You have literally given me a bit of my childhood back.
