OCR03894 - Secret of Mana "Eternal Beginnings"

Recommended Posts

Wow! What an awesome group effort! Live instruments are definitely the best for orchestral covers. Only critique I have is that the way it ended was kind of dull. I would've preferred hearing something more climactic to close things off, like a crescendo.

so good to see there's people out there still trying to do big things with the secret of mana tracks. got a little teary eyed when i saw the whole youtube arrangement.

great treatment of individual tunes, with some good and some so-so transitions. i (partly) realize the extreme work that must go into arranging, coordinating and mixing this...it's an accomplishment in itself.

it works as a megamedley. it's pleasant to listen to for sure. but of course, it meanders and lacks a greater development over 30 minutes.

i think you could do incredible stuff if you focus a little less on cramming every tune you like in the soundtrack in there and see how you can expand the whole soundtrack with more involved, dynamic arranging (less 'next tune', more 'what does this need as a 30 minute piece'). of course, this multiplies the already staggering amount of work :)

great work, and i see you've done similar things with other OSTs. i think megamedleys are cool, but they can be so much greater when you break up the 'tune after tune' formula at some point and go wild.
