You don't want my opinion, don't offer me the option of giving it. If you don't like my opinion, that fails to be my problem.

If you don't like my opinion of your opinion, that fails to be my problem. :lol:

Despise!

SO GOOD.

This songs makes me wanna float up to the sky. You always have that grand ethereal feel in all of your electronica, and son, i am not disappoint.

And that DUBSTEP bridge with the vox glitching! Man, bLiNd, you handle that girl's voice LIKE A BOSS.

I've never heard dubstep so grand and airy before. You definitely did a good job blending DnB and dubstep.

To be perfectly honest, dubstep should be better suited as an element of music (like it is here) rather than a genre of music, but that's just my personal taste. You did a great job and you certainly threw down teh wubwubz without fail.

Oof, I like it. Overall, it's a pretty nice song, but the lyrics were a bit of a turn-off for me.

How dare there be lyrics in an arrangement of a song with lyrics! Definitely worthy of SuperGiantDespiseItalics! :lol:

Damn Larry, are you like the lyrics nazi? How about this:

I thought the lyrics in this song were the best lyrics I've ever heard in a song period. Best. Ever. In the history of the world. Not even God's angels could have done this track justice the way bLind and Ashleigh did.

Does that make you happy? :grin:

In all seriousness, this track is awesome, in every way.

This is gorgeous stuff. I really liked the original soundtrack and this mix takes it up a notch. You and Ashleigh did a fine job! Not sure about the dubstep yet, but I'm getting there.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone, all appreciated.

I really enjoyed making this, it was hard but I believe it was worth it, especially for my beautiful wife...

This is one of the most beautiful things I've heard on OCR in some time. It's like we've all been given a present. :)

As usual, another good one from bLiNd. One of the few reason I log into the forums to say anything.

Could have done without the dubstep, though. Never understood why that junk is popular, but hey, to each his own.

From all the feedback it seems there is a pretty fair amount of people that don't like dubstep at all. Honestly I don't either too much, that's why I toned down the dubstep feel in the track. I REALLY do not like skrillex at all. His music is too grating. But, I do like some bass sounds of dubstep because they are close to the electro house basses in the remixes I have been producing this past 2 years. Anyway, I tried to give this song a beautiful charm and keep the dubstep as an element instead of a genre because I tend to agree with a lot of you about the style plus it keeps drum n bass interesting if you use it as the climax of the track...

I'm glad someone tackled this soundtrack and with a (part) dubstep mix of all things. I hope to hear more remixes from this game and more from the genre aswell.

The vocals are phenemenal. Really captured the beauty of the original's.

There's just one word for this: professional. That's what it sounds like.

Pretty much the best thing to come out of OCR in the last few months IMO. Awesome beats, and the vocals...man, the vocals. More of that, please.

Absolutely amazing. I haven't been able to get it out of my head for about a week now (mostly due to the vocals).

I think the dubstep elements work very well, because like it's been said, it's not too grating. I agree with the fact that sometimes dubstep can be a little overbearing, but it's toned down here and I like the way it changes up the sound a lot. Great work!

I tend to treat dubstep with a degree of suspicion, but in this track, it works pretty well. Not exactly my favourite parts of this mix, but certainly not off-putting.

Delighted to finally have a XIII mix, and that it's a great one. Here's hoping for more!

I wasn't really a fan of this when I first heard it, but I really should have given it more of a chance.

It's definitely one of my favorite songs on the site now.

Overall a beautiful soundscape, but I feel the vocals are a bit buried in everything. Arrangement is ace, with a lot of interesting stuff going on, and the breakdown was sweet. Overall, really strong. Awesome work as usual, Jordan! :-)

I remember seeing someone on the OCR Facebook group post a comment that one of the best new songs on the site is this one, so I definitely have been looking forward to it. The source is one of the more notable ones from the FF13 OST, and Jordan doesn't aim small, as expected. Lots of processing effects are used throughout the song to help keep things fresh and add more of a dancing feel. The vocals are done perfectly for the trance/drum & bass style. The song doesn't rub off as a cheap beat thrown on top of a source that is tempting for others to do out of laziness either. Jordan is just phenomenal at his craft and this is just one more song out of a long lineage of only the best electronic video game mixes.

I'm a huge fan of Final Fantasy XIII's soundtrack. This is a daring interpretation of Will To Fight.

This is one of my favourite tracks on the OST, and now it has an OCR to help it be more awesome.

Those vocals are great, much more warm than the original.

And of course the instrumentation is different.

Come 1:30, I instantly fell in love. It's incredible. Nothing more. Nothing less.

END OF STO-

But I haven't talked about the section starting at 2:13. And why?

Because it's great. We don't need to talk about it. We all know it's good.

bLiNd, the dubstep is awesome. This song made me appreciate dubstep as a musical element. Before I listened to this song, I disliked all dubstep, but you've proven dubstep is downright FUNicular when you use it as a musical element rather than the entirety of the track.

Beautiful balance. It's been keeping me entertained for ages.

Holy crap! I saw drum and bass in the write up, and I wasn't expecting something beautiful like this. The vocals are wonderful, Ashleigh has an amazing voice. I really liked the use of effects on the vocals about halfway in, and of course bLiNd's mixing is masterful. Very nice.
