  1. So why IS "gentry" a five letter word? "Honor"?
  2. Every mp3 file encodes a certain amount of non-audio information collectively called tags. This contains information like the track title, composer, track number, and so forth; every mp3 player I know of displays some of that information while the track is playing. As for how to view the tags directly, it depends on the mp3 player you're using. If you're in iTunes, right click on the song and click Get Info, then click on the Lyrics tab. Windows Media Player works the same way if you check the Info Center or right-click on a song in the playlist pane and click Advanced Tag Editor. On an iPod, just click the center button until the notes come up. For WinAmp, double click on the song title to view the tags, and the lyrics appear in the Comments field.
  3. I kinda picture Zeromus in this context as Golbez's actor in a huge sequined outfit/parade float with a golf cart under it so he can move around the stage. Oh, I see. Awesome! Thanks! Also, I'd like to note that I'm not saying I dislike Phantom. I'm just a sucker for rock opera. (Or maybe I'm just a sucker.) (BTW, I was trying to refer to the duel between Draco and Ralse. Just to clarify.)
  4. It does remind me a bit of Fallout, or the overworld music from 2300 AD in Chrono Trigger. You're right -- at the time I was listening with my full attention, and two minutes is a long time when you're in that mode. I wasn't really expecting an atmospheric piece, which accounts for my negative reaction. For the record, RDX Necklace did go into my list of background music to use in my tabletop gaming sessions.
  5. Awesome! I can always use another FF remix! I can't quite manage to hold this much music in my head at the same time after only one listen, but I'll note songs that left an impression on me. Note that I'm not a musician myself, so my reactions tend to be more emotional than technical. The first song kicks off the album in grand style. I love orchestral versions of video game music, and this could be the opening for a movie. The "99 Red Ballons" opening in Ana(pro)logue kinda gave me whiplash. Made me chuckle when I recognized it, but it also broke the fourth wall (so to speak) for me. I see what you did there, but... I'm not sure it worked. RDX Necklace takes an awful long time to get started. I realize the source material doesn't offer much to work with, but my ears just plain get bored by the 2 minute mark. Just the title of Golbez 'n Goblins makes me laugh. The harmonies in Fighting for Tomorrow remind me of a hard-to-define Belgian band called "Encryption" I heard a few years ago on Radio Rivendell. Yours is much less repetitive, though. Rhymes With Elixir is a great entry in the grand tradition of non-serious chocobo remixes. Shiva's line about making you sublimate made me laugh aloud. Until the Tower Falls is definitely a standout among the instrumentals. The epic fanfare ending is perfect. I absolutely love the over-the-top "rock opera" feel of Genesis of Destruction. It kind of reminds me of the latter part of "Darkness and Starlight" on Black Mages 3, which you should take as an enormous compliment. I'd like to see the lyrics, though! On Genesis vs. Phantom, I think the ideal would kinda be a mix between the two (re-remix?). Like as in, the music from Genesis (which I prefer), with the Phantom vocals overlayed on the growly Zeromus noises that are saying the same thing at the same time... if that makes sense. Like "No! Get back! Nooooooo..." overlayed with "Rar! Growr-rar! Raaaaaaaaaaar..."
  6. I love this mix! My one and only complaint is that the lead-in is too long -- it goes on for 8 measures when one would expect it to start after just 4. Personally, I love the square-wave section, but I think my ears are tuned a little differently than most.
