OCR03528 - Final Fantasy VII "Vincent's Longing"


Recommended Posts

Oh my heavens, this is gorgeous. What a great handling of a theme! It takes the original goals of the song and expands upon them in multiple layers. Some beautiful ideas are woven through here, including what can only be described as an ominous playfulness (0:28-0:45), a really arresting selection of instrumentation (1:00-1:20), some deft handling of when to have harmony and when to leave the melody alone (1:45-2:05), and some wonderfully foreboding trailing (2:30 on). All of this doesn't even mention the build/resolution of 1:20-1:55 and its dual merging melodies, which is my favorite part of the whole song.

Totally unexpected, far different from most mixes. Can't recommend this enough. Many thanks to the remixer for this one!
