FINALLY! :P

Like I said in the irc listening party and some threads... hy bound needs a bit more attention! Hopefully he submits more 'cos I want MORE! :P Gotta say it's one of the best electronic tracks in OCR.

I really enjoyed this track. Definitely another favorite from the album, for me. I remember listening to it at the listening party, then BAM, vocals and awesome just blasted my ears and I was like "Whoa!". Great stuff.

Gave the album a cursory listen today while doing some wood work; this song stuck out as well done and creative. I'm familiar with the source material and to hear this splendid, somewhat exotic interpretation was wonderful.

A+.

This is one of the tracks that sticks out to me. The vocals draw you in so easily, and Hy's track is just great. Love to hear more from these two working together again!

Hm, I thought I commented on this track.

One thing I love is how the vocals contribute to an ethereal atmosphere. The instrumentals do a great job in enhancing this as well.

Definitely a solid track that shouldn't be overlooked.

I've said before that Hy Bound deserves more attention and hopefully this track will make many more people aware of how good a producer he is. You know I love this track, but once again, great job!

Striking stuff. About the most memorable track from the new FF4 album... There's something very catchy about the simple vocal punchline: this could easily be a big time radio hit (at least in Finland). Besides that the sounds and production are brilliant.

I'm not usually a fan of electronic music but this reminds me much of "Breakbeat Era" that I used to dig a lot for some odd reason.. Catchy, athmospheric, nice female vocals and yet very rocking.. Also reminds me of Tekken sound track, which is nice!

Superb work!

After listening to the project with some non-gamer friends this is the one track where everyone wanted to know who produced it and who sang in it. Nuf said, keep it up dude!

This remix was last seen walking in traffic, pushing a wheelbarrow carrying its huge brass balls.

In no way belittling the rest of the album, this is one of my favorites. Interesting, considering Beatsmith was one of my VotL favorites. Way to live up to your namesake, champ.

Assuming I've pegged where you got your name, that is.

Since I have no idea when I'll manage to fully review the album, it would be folly not to comment on this track. I almost feel bad saying so but this seems to be one of the tracks that is really standing out to everyone including myself so far, and with good reason.

I really love the slow intro which is more along the lines of the source, which changes pretty drastically without completely alienating the original once the beat jumps in. The vocals really take the song to the next level, despite the fact that there isn't much variety to them, they work very well in the context of the original, with Kain and Golbez hiding "somewhere" in the Tower waiting for you to find them.

3rd favorite track of the album, behind Phantom of the Zeromus (No! Get BACK! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooo!) and Fighting for Tomorrow. Hy Bound doesn't pull any punches with the production, and to Loka LaFevre, your voice is angelic. Great stuff!

God DAMN this song is insane. One of those ones that I love to crank up as loud as I can and see if I can catch anybody's attention with it, because that's exactly what this mix does; it grabs your attention and doesn't let go. The phat bass and breathy vocals are a perfect combination, and while some of the sound effects and transitions get a bit tired by the time the mix is over, I love the overall sound design and the sheer ballsiness of this song!

You took a stylistic risk but it paid off in the form of, what I think, is the best pure-electronic song on the album! :-D

I've listened to the FFVII Lifestream album last year and Hy Bound's track was my favorite by far. Just came across this one today and I love it just as much. Had to sign up and say so. Keep making more tracks, Hy Bound!

This track is pretty. The effects during the intro have a really cool gramophone sound that shuts off into the hard synths and LaFevre's soaring vocals. I think that it's really cool how sharp the synths sound, but I feel like the track doesn't have a strong enough bass beat - though what it does have is really awesome.

That's probably my love of heavy beats speaking though.

The ending of the track is a nice restructuring and heavier section, and though the vocals are minimized (and a bit of serious vocoding) I think its an excellent climax ~> ending.
