OCR02895 - Final Fantasy VII 'Captain of the Skies'

Recommended Posts

Lol, just previewed it and was thinking "this sounds kind of like Valdis Story", check the comments, turns out it was Zack Parrish who did this track. XD

Safe to say, this remix is great.

Very nice arrangement, "Cid's Theme" fits very well an orchestra. I really like the blending of the orchestra, electro element, and percussion. I wouldn't have added electric guitars later one, but it works well too. Nice job! :nicework:

Gorgeous ReMix. The build is incredibly epic right up until the highest peak and carries on to the very end, where we get a nice outro that lets the arrangement take a breath. Sweet as hell debut, Zack.

The attack on the violins near the beginning is crazy jarring -- needs some much smoother legato or other articulations. In general throughout the piece it could have used smoother articulations, if available, mainly for those distinct attacks.. The super fuzz guitar chugs seem exposed when they're so loud at first, but fit in better later on. And the ending could have been extended a lot. Seems to just peter out. But on the whole, this is a pretty strong mix. :nicework:

It may be called Captain of the Skies, but I think the source's title fits the music better. It has a dark yet inspirational and cinematic atmosphere that is very good. Sweet debut!

I just came here after being linked through A Legacy Forgotten (FF VI). Who is this artist?? This is another incredible work; the distinctive flavor of Cid comes right through, but in such a unique way - that's two songs in a row that I thought I knew by heart and each remix caught me in ways I had never imagined. The section 1:00-1:25 sounds like it's out of The Last Of Us - I mean that as an extremely high compliment - and the mix continually evolves without ever getting a static "now a big part, now a little part" kind of feel. (2:15-2:45 is particularly impressive for this.) And again, another gorgeous ending!?!? Wow, am I impressed!!
