Final Fantasy IX 'Alexandrian Nightmare'

OK, some might like this one, but I personally think it's pretty annoying. Drum work doesn't shine as much as DJ Pheonix's other stuff, and I'm frankly really sick of that saw wave thingy in the background. And for the half of the remix that has the Alexandria melody, it's really repetitive with not-so-great instrument choice. If you're a big DJ Pheonix fan, go for it. Otherwise, skip it.

Hehehehe...im a Dj Pheonix fan so i liked XD, the drums are alittle annoying in the beggining, but its all worth it for the meledy (I think :P). I wish he made the beggining shorter and took off with the meledy a little more, but its a decent mix anywayz. I liked the original song ALOT, and this is a good mechanical mix of it, atleast worth listening to once. I give it a 7.5/10.

Yeah this is one of my favorites too, however, I did like some of his other work a little more, I give it a 7/10. I agree with krispykreme, the mix does have too much put into the introduction, and the middle of the remix just doesn't seem to last long enough, that's why the low score.

I actually really liked it--and this is from someone who didn't like any trance or techno before finding this site. I don't know exactly what it was, it was just... really aggressive, it sort of yelled at you, if you know what I mean. I didn't find it too repetitive at all... in all, 8.5/10, maybe even a 9. Good work!

It started off pretty good, but once the melody came in, it lost me. The melodic synths were just kindof generic and it sounded like they were in a different key than the opening.

I also wish the snare was stronger as well, as the current one sounds like a snare drum being played with toothpicks instead of drumsticks.

I think the beat, and everything up to when the melodies start are decent (esp. for a mix of this age), but when they do come in it's not too good. I basically agree with OA, the first lead is way too simple, and the melodies feel pasted on without regard to key. I didn't mind the long intro at all, I liked it and it got my expectations up (which was good) but unfortunately the piece didn't deliver.

Ugh...that intro reminded me of why I don't like this song (or why I remembered what it sounded like).

That intro dragged on way too long and kills things early I think. The song also goes pretty much straight from the source and just adds a little on top along with a tempo boost I feel.
