  1. I can definitely agree that this song didn't last long enough. But I've never really been a big fan of the One Winged Angel theme so I'm probably not familiar with it enough to really compare, yet I liked this one well enough. The vocals were well done, I saw a post somewhere that said they seemed incorrect, but since I don't speak Latin I thought it was great.
  2. This is one of my favorites from the set, I'm actually listening to it now (it's stuck on replay since I'm too busy reviewing all of these to change it, LOL). I'm not sure how to describe it, I'm very pleased that I can distinguish Tifa's theme from this quite well, and I like the speed, feel, and rhythm it has. Excellent work.
  3. I enjoyed this one a lot, it's definitely one of my favorites. I liked the way that the notes in Aeris' theme were rushed at various speeds since it gave the song more originality when the original had already been replayed a million times over the past 10 years.
  4. I'd never listened to Pixietricks' vocals before, I was VERY impressed by them. It was a nice relaxing blend of themes, I was very satisfied listening to this as the first track in the set.
  5. You guys said it took more than a year to put all this together... it definitely shows. While I don't necessarily like each track in relation to the original, each song on it's own is wonderful. There were many songs that I had difficulty hearing or feeling the original song, or only caught it for a brief window out of the whole piece, but I think what was more important was that I could clearly see the remixer's interpretation and personality in all of them. Even the tracks that I didn't like from the original game or the ones that fell into genres that I don't particularly care for I could
  6. At first I got myself psyched up - a friend referred me to this song, I saw the reviews, I read DJPretzel's comments, then I listened to the song. The first time through I was unimpressed. I was expecting something else by that time. So I played it again, listening to the parts people were pointing out, still not really that impressed. So I walked away... but for some reason, I really wanted to hear it again. I probably played it twenty times in a row before my housemate went insane, not knowing what exactly it was I was listening to. The song really does speak for itself in the end. It's
  7. The vocals in the new remix just creeped me out actually when I first heard them. The song itself became less sorrowful and more creepy in general, especially at the end. I'm not actually even sure what the vocals are saying. It sounds like "Got inspiration?", like a 'Got Milk?' commercial... or "God inspiration", which doesn't even make sense to me. I would've been satisfied with the song without them. I love the original, I used to listen to it all the time. Unfortunately, the problem I had with the original is that once when I was listening I turned my speakers up with my mom in the ho
  8. The song wasn't bad at all, very relaxing. My only problem was that I couldn't really tell what song it was based off of from FF7 for a while. I guess the Wutai theme didn't stick with me very well. It sounds very appropriate though for Wutai, the piece has a nice Asian accent.
  9. This is a very nice relaxing piece. I don't have much else to say about it right now since I just woke up and it's putting me back to sleep, lol!
  10. I guess that's why I don't like it, because I don't "get" the point, whatever it may be. When I first heard it, I didn't know what it was for a while, so I'm listening to it trying to figure it out, and I didn't really care for the way it sounded to begin with. Then I hear this voice which freaked me out/annoyed me so much that I tossed my headphones away @_@;;, and THEN I get the wake up call, "Oh, it's Eyes on Me..." except I can't understand it at this point, because I'm saying to myself, "WTH? This is Eyes on Me???" I guess I'm just too much of a fan of the original, whether that's a goo
  11. I didn't like this as much as the original. The vocals were beautiful, maybe more so that Faye Wong, but unfortunately I couldn't hear them. They were drowned out by the overly loud thud-thud-thud beat. It was as if the artist wasn't sure whether he should place emphasis on the song or the vocals, and made the two equally quiet while keeping the beat the most noticeable aspect. In some ways it seems like the song was rushed and left half-complete without playing around with the volume. I was also only partially interested in the fast beat because the vocals sounded rushed, in parts where
  12. I actually did not like this piece at all. I could barely tell what song it was when I was listening to it, and if the song's already half over by the time I can identify it I don't think it rates very highly. I didn't like the vocals, in fact I hated them. I will agree they sound 'creepy', which is not my thing and so I do have bias, but that the vocals sound like someone just talking and not singing ruins the song for me. There is no power in the song, there is no motivation or anything, it's just a monotonic piece with a somewhat annoying reverb that sounds like someone down on their luc
  13. Emotion of Xenogears is a sweet song in itself (one of my favorites even), but this remix of it is even more incredible. It's more laid back than the original as I recall, but the slower pace makes it seem all the better.
  14. This is a GREAT song. Turning the original into something with this much power and class is no easy task. If only they could've remade the Gamecube release of this game with this kind of music...
  15. This is an amazing mix of a very rare and not so memorable song from FF7. Most of my friends don't even recognize what song it is when they hear it at first, or have a hard time believing it was the snow fields, but it's faster tempo and quality is just awesome. This is one of my favorites to play when it's snowing out.
