OCR01110 - Final Fantasy VII "Sector 7 Hath Wrought the Angel"

Recommended Posts

i never post here. i only do when i think the remix is something pretty good, or so blatantly horrendous that i want to rip off the ears fo the remixer for remixing a track.

that said.

this is good and fun, and i'll prolly listen to it in the future. ^_____^ not one of the best remixes on the site by far, but like i said, fun.

i particularly like how the lyrics countermelodied each other at points, as well as some parts of the music. but the track was a bit repetitive, and a bit empty. needed more going on. maaaaaaaaan, if you redo the remix one day, even if it was completely different like ya said. i would *so* listen to that. heehee.

Without a doubt, my favorite Final Fantasy remix, this is a great mix, i repeat myself, without a doubt. although i wish i knew exactly what they were saying. I never really liked how it was put into the game the way it was, but now it is so much better.

Well, I really liked the first 18 seconds, but the kinda heavy beat slows the song down a bit while the vocals used seem to speed it up. Against the judges I think the vocals are used well, though not structured enough. The "Sector 7" influence does not disturb the mix but distracts me a bit from the threatening undertone of the song.

Lucani opinio: Good remix, would perhaps be even better without "Sector7" parts and a bit shortened - forget it; well done!

Outstanding!

I always love the vocals in One Winged Angel, but I never like the rest of it. This solves this problem perfectly!! I can't think of a single change that would make this better then it already is. Very nicely done!

This one I've been following since it was a WiP. This track has been in my regular rotation of tunages. Congrats to you Trenthian. This one is one of my faves and I'm glad to see that it made it to OCR.

"One winged angel" in itself was a real masterpiece and milestone for not only Nobuo Uematsu but for video games and even games in general.Nothing was more amazing then getting into a face to face fight with Sephiroth with the beaming Live vocals of an assembled choir.Top notch and this remix is just that as well.TOP NOTCH...vocal extracting from the original mix jus really added to the remix and everything done to it didnt ruin nor kill da mood at all.I love this mix and give it a good DMD rating.Keep it up.

Awesomeness and awesomosity... :wink:

As far as FF soundtracks go, Seven's didn't really strike me as the best by a long shot, but it does have a few really good tracks... One Winged Angel is one of those, and probably the best of 'em. Nice to see it get some well deserved and EXCELLENT coverage. =)

I'm kind of... eh... I wouldn't mind the remix having the same voices and many other things if the remix had been good. For me though the entire first 3 and a half minutes the mix was boring and hard for me to listen to.

The mix was hardly epic, powerful, thrilling or anything really... it was just there. At some parts in the first minute it felt like I was watching latin porn heh..

Wow. No other way to say it. Just. Wow. Listen to this song if you haven't already. I'm curious though how he came upon the latin singers. Was that recorded live, or extracted from the original song somehow?

I'm in agreement with Kodeir` up there. Yes the vocals are an interesting take on a remix by removing them and adding the orginal tracks but, the tone of the orginal vocals are so bombastic and epic that putting them with the new track just really... eh. I don't get any epic feel from the piece anymore, and for the most part am just bored with whats going on. The slow section was interesting, and I do like some of the new themes but they just don't mesh well with the tone of the vocals

Hmm... When this song first started playing, I reeeally wasn't too sure about it, but by the end of the song, I just put it on "loop" and left it there. :D VERY well done. My original skepticism was, for once, completely errant. I give it two thumbs up.

I acctually liked this song. It must have taken some serious work to bring out those "lyrics" or whatever. But, I get the feeling this is Sephiroth lite. Just doesn't push down on you like the real song. Of course, the quality is much better than da MIDI, so I'd rather listen to this, but if there was a remix more like the original "god o death" song, I think I'd rather listen to that. Still, great tune.

This I love! It has such a unique sound for OWA (which I would like to save is probably my most favorite video game song EVA!)

But the sounds seem to mix between the original choir sound, dance, a sci-fi sound, and something Arabic (i think? :?: ). And then when it starts to have a calm, sad theme starting at 2:10 when the Sector 7 theme becomes alot more clear (to me, anyway). Plus you got the lyrics out so clearly! It's great! ^_^ On top of that, both songs were mixed together so well that they almost sound as if they are one and the same! ^_^ (that's what i think, anyway). ^^

This was an extremely beautiful remix, in my opinion, and I find it a shame that some people don't enjoy it. I can already tell my dad's gonna kill me for playing this day in and day out. ^^; ('specially considering I'm on the tenth repeat now).

Regardless of what some of the other reviews say, I think you should be very proud of your work on this, because it was excellent! Great job! ^_^

I can't belive I just found this! Me being a huge Sephiroth fanatic ( the nick name Omega Sephiroth says it all ) and his theme song, I look for remixes everywhere...and i just found this one... It is great! It has earned itself a nice lil place on my playlists ^.^

this is an excellent mix of a great piece. i'd been listening to the original for so long, i was getting tired of it, but i still loved it and wanted to keep listening to it, so finding this was wonderful. i even used it as music for my fashion show presentation- perfect beat, recognizable melody, and it fit my theme of games perfectly. people were coming up to me afterwards saying "where did you find that incredible music? can you burn me a copy?" and stuff like that, so i just wrote down the link for them. keep up the good work, trenthian- you've got a lot of new eager fans!
