Sample quality's a little low, but this arrangement really shines through the sample problems. I would also suggest a deeper reverb to draw the elements together. Just something to keep in mind for next time, though, cause I think the arrangement alone here definitely deserve a YES.

Excellent arrangement, but

Needs a lot more reverb, and I can hear some parts where the kick drum has been programmed in, and then the same sound has been doubled up.

Kirbz spelled "Nobuo Uematsu" as "Nubuo Uematsu" in the ID3v2 tags, thus incorrectly representing the original composer's name.

Now, to the mix - The mix itself lacks dynamics as Malcos and Orkybash have mentioned. Reverb and definitely some panning are absolutely necessary. Other than that, the arrangement is quite good. However...

I'm all about reinterpretation, but after listening to the original of this song, I don't know if I can listen to this mix again. That's the problem with trying to arrange stuff from newer consoles, is that you've got to up the bar to match the technology. This is extremely dry and I don't believe it does a good job of stacking up against the original. While it's got some good compositional aspects, but the samples are very dry, and the chord progression from the original has been all but eliminated.

NO

There is no place on OCR for remixes with such low

quality instrumentation regardless of how nice the arrangement may be.

There is also no place for amazing instrumentation with poor

arrangements.
