OCR00988 - Chrono Trigger "The Incredible Singing Robot"

Recommended Posts

Wow, originally I wasn't a huge fan of this because I had never played much of Chrono Trigger, but I'm actually playing through it this time and suddenly I love this. Excellent work, great lyrics, wonderful all-around. :D

This so totally hilarious! Those who haven´t read the lyrics below djpretzel´s review really, NO, MUST read them! The experience of this becomes much better.

Thanks Salzman, you are the first of the pioneers leading the way to friendship between robots and mankind, in a funny way. The last lines was the best.

But the music is good to, I thought I would download this only because of the great piano at the end. Great that someone took the step to give Robo´s theme a makeover, but we didn´t expect somethin´ like this!

Thanks again Star!**********

I adore this song! Kudos to Star for another job well done. love the whole concept, beginning to end.

You should do a song for each of the characters. Although, Crono's would have to be lyrical (ha, get it? He doesn't talk in the game, therefore no lyrics to his song! Ha! I kill me...).

Actually, he has one line, at the end of the Ultimate Slideshow... so his song would have to have at least one line

This song rules. I'm suprised there aren't more robo remixes like this one but this one does it great justice. Great job with the lyrics too, I think it's a good take on robo's character. I think his girlfriend should have been mentioned in the song though, or like there should be a song about robo losing that pink robot (he he emo robo)... No where was I? Oh right, sweet remix a total 10 outta 10.

Excellent. I think it needed the reference to the girlfriend, but other than that it covered robo's story EXTREMELY well. Also, the insult to Frog at the end was unnecessary. Take them both. I'm sure they have some awesome triple tech together. I wouldn't know. I dropped Robo for Magus. The Masamune just stomped to much trash to leave behind.

Hehe, this song is pretty darned good. Although I think that my friends would question my sexuality if they heard me play this in my car lol, oh well, but damn, it sorta sounds like something of a mix of Daft Punk, Orbital and Chrono Trigger meshed together.

Oh wow. This is one of the earliest ReMixes I downloaded, and it's still a favorite. It makes me laugh, dance, and sing along at the same time, and now I can't even imagine hearing the source. The lyrics are great, and I love to randomly sing them because nobody else I know even knows what Chrono Trigger is, and it stumps them.

My first post :-P

I went through all the Chrono Trigger remixes not too long ago since my wife and I just finished the game. I came across this tune and loved it. It has a great beat and the lyrics fit the character. The melody is expressed really well too, both in the lyrical sections and instrumental sections. But, as I believe djpretzel said in his review, this mix has that sort of 80's new wave sound down pat and could, in my opinion, stand toe to toe with Mr. Roboto any day.

My only complaint is that, at least on my speakers, the lyrics don't seem loud enough compared to everything else and seem a bit drowned out

I listen to this on the train and its awesome

I absolutely love this track. I'm not usually a fan of remixes that add lyrics, but these just work so well - from the words to the type of voice used, this IS Robo singing. Every time this pops up on my randomized playlist I can't help but smile and sing along. Very fun take on a great theme from the game. And I love how you worked in just a little bit of Robo's in-game "speaking" sound effect.

One of my favorites- the section at 2:15 is beautiful with that rocking arpeggio, and the rest is pretty solid too. The RMS is a bit high, but that just seems to be how Star rolls.

A great creative endeavor, and one Stars best.

How have I never heard this before? 8-O Star has proven himself time and time again to be a pure genius, so it almost makes me wonder why I haven't taken the time to listen to his whole remix catalog before.

This captures the essence of 80's pop with some appropriate vocal filtering that fits the concept of the song nicely :-P Star is a master of this kind of loud, punchy music that's full of a ton of intricacies that are impossible to fully comprehend on the first listen.

For, like, the 2 of you out there that haven't heard this yet, check it out! It's a really fun romp through a nice theme, what more can you ask for?
