OCR01053 - Chrono Trigger "Zeal Love"

Recommended Posts

If you ask me, this is the best Zeal remix from all Zeal remixes at ocremix.org

That instrument which plays those main notes from 0:43 to end, has some static which spoils the remix a little bit or it's my Grado SR-80 headphones. :(

I like this so much that I put it to my favorites. 8)

I am in love with this Zeal mix. Wow. I love the Zeal music from CT, and I love all of the mixes... but this one I didn't find until recently for some reason... And i'm in love with it. It is so amazing. Just so good. Wells the emotions and makes me stop everything I'm doing when it comes on... its amazing.

Thank you.

There are a lOT of CT remixes.. its hard to keep em all straight and remember the good ones.. But this one is a must have.

That piano, with that bouncing synth makes me so Sad :cry: Excellent use of emotion.

Lots of memories. Good work.

This is very emotional. Great job applying a new chord progression to the often-remixed Zeal theme. The distorted piano does work very well as djp stated, which is not usually the case. The slight waiting at some points on the attack of the piano adds great feel. This has a unique style, and perhaps is one of the more creative of the Zeal mixes out there.

This is a song that just completely went under-the-radar for me. I was only browsing the site today when I stumbled upon it and realized I didn't recognize the name.

This is easily the best Zeal remix out there. It isn't overdone, it isn't grinding, and it isn't melodramatic.

What it is is highly emotional, but in a subtle way that doesn't cause you to weep openly when you listen to it. I guess the best way to describe it would be melancholy-- kind of like drifting memories of the once-glorious-yet-now-fallen Zeal Kingdom.

That's the way I want to think of Zeal, and that is the element that this mix so perfectly captures.

]This song is one of the best I know, very soothing ';,,;' Someone who is listening outside of a mixers knowledge cannot spot the so called "flaws" you claim it has, therefore its fine to me

I second that....awesome mix.

Personally, I don't like a lot of the Zeal remixes....not sure why, but they just don't grab me. This one on the otherhand....what can I say but superb? This remix conveys the emotion and grandeur most people seem to associate with Time Circuits, and, like When All Hope Has Faded, it does so by combining traditional and electronic instrument manipulation. Can't go past this one.

*WARNING* more emotional individuals may need a tissue or two at hand when listening to this one - I kid you not. This track moved me, almost to tears when I let my imagination start running about what it could pair up with visually.

I have downloaded many songs from the OC site but this one keeps my coming back for more nearly a year after I first heard it. I get the same feeling now when I hear at as I did the first time. This has to be one of the best songs.

Unipulator, this is simply great stuff. i think it takes balls to distort the piano, and the risk pays off. the first few chords are a little rough, but 30 seconds later i have forgotten all about it as i drift off into OCR bliss. this is a premier(sp?) example of why this site exists so please Uni, keep up the good work

Zeal Love stays in perfect harmony with its predecessor. It never sways away from the original melody. If you liked the Orignal, then there is no doubt that you will absolutely love this version. This is what i believe can be the successor of the original piece. This is very very passionate music here.

YOU CAN FEEL THE LOOOVE DUDES, ZEAL LOOVE!!!! :D:P:tomatoface:

The very irritating fact that there´s a million Zeal mixes really puts me in my bad mood, but I can´t withstand the power of love. :wink:

Anyhow, great mix, very funky and groovy, actually hippie-style man. The piano was great along with the looping synth at the back, and distortion thingie, didn´t bother me.

This would be the number one track at OCRemix Love Collection Album, trust me.

Someone's obsessed with Chrono Trigger remixes......

HAHAHA...very funny. I guess I got a little carried away, and I do love these remixes(who doesn´t?).

Is that a crime? Huh?

I downloaded this mix a few days ago and I still can't get it out of my head, Zeal has always been one of my favorite video game songs, but this take on it made me appreciate it in a whole new light. The distorted piano is very artistic, and at times very emotional, thepiece as a whole is just beautiful, one of the best pieces I've heard on the site so far, this one is definitely staying on my playlist. Keep up the good work!

This has always been my favorite take on "Corridors of Time", with "Electric Clouds" coming in a close second. Some people reacted negatively to the distorted piano, but I feel that the song wouldn't be the same without it. When it's first introduced, everything except for the percussion and a pad is taken away. Eventually, the other synths come in again to create a truly bitersweet sound.

I first listened to this mix about two years ago, when I first discovered the site. It was a relatively rough time in my life, and I would often listen to this mix, as well as many others. Anyway, time went on and it's been a couple years since I've listented to it.

Just five minutes ago, I decided to listen to it again, and I was completely overwhelmed with a feeling of nostalgia. In my opinion, the fact that this remix brought up old memories and emotions is proof that video game music and remixes are a form of music that is just as powerful as any other.

i love this mix almost as much as i hate it... in '03 i dated a young man who said he made this and many other oc remixes. he was lying, of course, and the betrayal hurts to this day because every time i hear one of those songs the pain returns. this particular song was 'our' song. i can't even listen to it anymore, haven't been able to since, but it's so beautiful... every so often i have to torture myself with it.

and i don't care what any of those other losers say. :wink: (i kid, i kid - some of those 'losers' are the big names around here) but i like the distorted piano. emotional acid reflux aside, this is my favorite zeal remix.
