OCR01667 - Final Fantasy VII "Too Much Fighting"

Recommended Posts

Well, this mix is really GOING ways. Starts of nice and funky with the organ and the swirling synths, follows up with the OBLIGATORY Rhodes solo (wtf are rhodes anyway?) and then breaks down into the Glockenspiel+voice sample. And then..TOTAL MOOD SWING, whole thing becomes pressing, darker, MORE EVIL!! into a really cool crescendo.

I can see how hard it can be to implement a similar build-up/mood change into your mix, but you've really nailed it very well here, and it makes the mix sound really big, epic, etc. WHICH IS GOOD. Keep on mixing, you beautiful, beautiful Swede =3

ho snap.

Seriously though this is groovy ass. djp picked up on my favourite thing about this mix, the little staccatos during the Jenova bit, so fun :3. All the little details which make something pretty good into something awesome are here. Way to take a mini-source and go off on a total tangent and get away with it somehow.

So good so good so good! One of the best off of VoTL, partly because of how it manages to go places with about ten seconds of source. I love remixes of short sources, because it forces the remixer to interpret them to make them interesting.

This is... Well, whatever it is, it certainly IS..what it is. I do lieks me some Rhodes. Bonus points for JENOVA.

Oh yes I was waiting for this to appear in here...

This is such a marvelously groovy remix of the fanfare from FFVII. Love the groove, love the organ, love it all! Way to take the fanfare theme and expand on it in a fabulous way.

You know what this is delicious with? Fighting (7/8 Jazz Spiritual). Mmm. It's like a fight of grooviness with a victory of grooviness.

Nice gradual evolution on this one, synths chosen are nice, and lots of interesting but subtle details keep things going strong throughout.

I'd say some thing seem almost too subtle in a few spots, as there is no climax that is distinct aside from the transition to Jenova, which I took as more of a transition. I've listened to this about 8 times in a row now and it's awesome for just chilling to, and there is nothing technically wrong with it (quite the opposite really), but I just couldn't get into it.

The transitions really help make this piece. Anso does a great job of incorporeating themes in a new was, which is commendable.

Nice stylistic choices, and again, the transitions of style really are well done and smooth. The move into Jenova really shows this point.

I enjoyed this piece. Maybe not my favorite FF7 mix, but I can tell a lot of work was put into, and that helps me appreciate it.

It is a quote from Last Order.

Tseng says it before Zack and Cloud are "apprehended"

The translation we are given in the movie is "Will we take freedom away from them again?"

Just thought you'd like to know that.

Oh and by the way, this is one of my favorite remixes on VotLs!!

Excelent work!

Thanks for the translation! I'm glad it wasn't something stupid like "dude, tifa's hot!"..

I heard this song and had to add some vocals to it. It sucks writing all your stuff your self, especially when there are people as talented as this guy out there. This song is just perfect, really is, there is not one thing wrong with it. It has a progression like a very classical arrangement. Where it will introduce a melody, deviate away from it, then come back with avengence (a vengence?). IDK, this is the kind of track that will teach geeky kids like myself to dance. You can also headbang to it too if you'd like.... gunna have to add the word headbang to my dictionary here.

*blinks* did that just happen? Did you really just do that to the source, dude?

*butthumps* THAT WAS FANASTIC!!! I tried very hard to find something to point out that I didn't like, you know, cause I hate you Anso, but I couldn't. This was kickass. Great concept, great execution, great production. My hat is off to you, sir. While it may not be something to listen to in my car while driving, it is definitely something I'd listen to if I wanted to get work done somewhere. You go from chill and chimey to acid-spasm detuning without flinching.

I can only assume it's that magical beard that gives you your powers.

I... I'm simply speachless. We all know for sure how talented this Sweden guy is, but this is just way too awesome. I couldn't even imagine that such simple source as "Fanfare" can be given such complicated treatment with all the fuzzy synths, acoustic drums and other stuff. I also like how he managed to throw in some good old theme of J-E-N-O-V-A for good measure. I'm also sure I've heard a cameo of "Prelude" somewhere. It's an absolutely great piece of music! Don't miss it :)
