OCR01260 - Final Fantasy VII "Philharmonic Suite: Finale"

Recommended Posts

Lol this is slightly dead...but ill review it anyway.

I wasnt quite thouroughally impressed lik lots of people. The SAMPLES, and the use of the samples are the best part. Miroslav strings are nice here, not the newest but theyre good. The violin was a bit thin though, and sounded like mono samples which can take away the effect of it filling the concert hall with sound. The use of the samples, like i said, is very good here.

The orchestration is good but not the OMG THA BEST REMIXZzzxS ON OCR...lol ( i absolutley hate those stupid posts that people make). Back on topic... it lacks 2 things : lots of variety and a real climax. Symphonies and crap include lots of sections...maybe starting with an upbeat allegro section...then slows down to a more relaxed, emotional section halfway into a piece, then crescendos back into something like the first section, but more vigorous-...then the finale. Near the end of this, theres more barass and it gets slightly more intense but sort of dies really quick...the second thing i think this lacks is use of instruments. There was like NO Contrabass part, a few woodwinds and not much brass. Sure, pieces focus on things, like strings, but this kind of randomly threw in something like a clarinet, then goes back to string sections/solo violin.

Those things aside, i think this is overall a very good piece and is worthy of being posted on OCR! Keep up the good music!

(P.s. Sorry for the typos, but i type way too fast :) )

This one got some real good felling here. If you have played the game, you can relive the moment when this was happening, but this time with better music, philharmonic music!Thanks JB for this solid and well made remix.

Now if you excuse me, I have to go and download the rest of your philharmonic parts.

I'm really impressed with the composition and sequencing. Though, there really isn't enough volume contrast. That's made up in length. Some of the samples are a bit weak but, overall Iam very impressed.

I totally agree, it deserves to be on everyone's playlist. I don't know who wouldn't want such a magnificent piece of remixed music. From the original, it was taken a step further and made into an absolute masterpiece.

Yeah, I agree, this Finale is rather good (but like the others have mentioned, I want the rest...) But I loved the them of the WEAPONs in FFVII, so having it orchestrated along with the Highwind theme is well, nirvana for me, hehe, so (I know I'm gonna end up saying this to all the remixes I like) Thanks for making this for us FF fans! Also, has anyone else noticed how the middle sounds well very Star Wars like? I thought it was just me, but I was told that also by a friend, so I thought that was rather interesting

Fantastic! I mean really magnificent! "Weapon Raid" was one of the most intense songs of the game, but it always lacked something, and now I know what. That real power you get from hearing it in a full orchestra and not a two demensional synthesiser. This is by far one of my favorite remixes on this site. My hat's off to you Jeremy. You gave this piece a soul. I would love you to continue your suite!

I absolutely love each and every one of the songs in the philharmonic suite, but this one really blew me away. This song capitalizes on the already majestic origins (Weapon Raid) and really showcases just how awesome the song really is by taking it to the next level of majesty. Of course, I couldn't fail to mention the inclusion of the Highwind's theme, which is an awesome part of the Finale - it's probably my favorite single part of the song.

I'm sad that I happened upon these so late after they were made, but I managed to track down all of the files - the Opening, parts 1-4 and the Finale - and have uploaded them all to Youtube for those who are interested in checking them out in that format.

Pretty exciting and dramatic stuff- the ending minute is completely spectacular! There were a lot of well used themes present, and the transitions were very solid.

Overall a really nice and exciting orchestral piece! :-)
