OCR01680 - Final Fantasy VIII "Realization"

Recommended Posts

I do enjoy some straight up unts once in a while, and this certainly feeds me my daily recommended dose of unts. My only complaint about unts is that it gets kind of repetitive? But, since that's kind of the point with unts, so it works.

Awesome mix - I really like the bass groove throughout the whole thing. I find it a little bit on the long side, but it's never boring or uninteresting. Really nice work!

I finally completed this game the other week, so I enjoyed this even more then I would have. FF8 needs more remixes, a very enjoyable soundtrack if a little short.

Boom-tiss with class. gg Heath.

"...but I actually think Square could get some new fans by reviving the essential concept of Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest - in other words, RPGs for dummies."

FF:MQ bombed far more than FF8 ;)

As for the track, I thought it sounded a bit uninspired at first until it changed gears so to speak. ^^ Now I just think it's awesome!

Great variation on this, it progresses really well and stay interesting throughout. The sounds used all fit together well, though I do agree with Palpable on the piercing quality of the harpsichord (which is still a really cool sound, it works well, it's just a little hard on me), and the thinness of the oboe. Nothing worth sweating, really. The beats are fantastic, and the gated synths are perfect.

Speaking of gated synths, I was kindof hoping for some during the oboe breakdown to keep the rhythm intact a bit more. I totally understand dropping the beats, but rhythmically it sortof stopped a bit too much. Great chance to catch your breath before starting up again. :-)

I've always been a fan of your style, and this one takes all of the good and mixes it with a very nice arrangement. Great work dude. :-)

Just plain awesome. I love this mix! The only one small beef I have is that the format ABAB seems to give a little too much to the second part when it's the first one's harpsichord that gets stuck in my head. Still great, though!

I wasn't really into this at first, but it's really grown on me. I think I like it even more than Highwind Throwdown and that was a great song. Definitely among the best trance on OCR.

I was very impressed at how well this song adapted to trance! I don't care if it's 7 years later, it's the first time I've heard the song... and it brought me a smile. :)

Well done!
