OCR00833 - Final Fantasy VII "Otanjoubi Cid"

Recommended Posts

Final Fantasy VII 'Otanjoubi Cid'

Erm.... well, I liked most of it. Specifically, I liked the part that was the incredibly crisp, well thought out trance that we get from Haroon. But that intro, well, ruined the song for me. There's only a certain amount of strangeness I can take from a remix before it becomes unlistenable, and for me that crossed the line.

But like I said, if the intro wasn't there it would be some really good trance.

I would have to say it is some pretty damn good trance, and yes the intro gets very annoying after awhile, but not annoying enough to wreck the rest of the song. Job well done.

Orkybash hit it on the nose. The mix is good in whole, but the intro totally ruined it for me. Perhaps FFmusic Dj would be willing submit the same mix minus the intro? That would make the song so much better than it is IMHO.

I personally thought the intro was TIGHT! I love a little humor, as that was obviously what he was going for.....duh :roll:

It was great. Because after the little boy, this "evil" voice comes on a tells him to shut up, that's LAUGHS!! :D Then all of a sudden.....BOOM!!!! 8O LOUD HARD and KICKIN' ASS!!!!!! :D:D:D

I appreciatethis song very much, and I know it'll definitely be one of the great "Hard/Trances" out there.

P.S. Keep the intro, it totally throws you off-guard :D

heh, you can always give this song as a gift to a friend, thats why I didnt add my friends name, then I think it would have been a little rude if I submitted a little something like what I got now.

Um, I'm pretty sure he has a right to say whatever he wants. And no, OCR isn't a private service for one person's birthday. I doubt that was how ffmusicdj intended it. More of a dedication for one, but a song for all.

Anyways, the rest of the song kicks ass. No complaints about the music here.

Clearly, one of the greatest gems in all of OCR. Rich, and powerful, and built on the noblest of purposes; this ballad brings home the dilemma burning within Cid's heart: How to wish Barret a Happy Birthday without seeming like a sissy-pants.

I am the only one who sees where the intro was drawn from? Clearly inspired by Noriyuki Iwadare's work in Lunar: The Silver Star, that classic theme "Girl Who Won't Win Singing Contest." Brilliant.

Very nice, dispite the unexplainably bizzare intro. Really, just listen to the 20 seconds, you're missing a real gem. Of course, if FFDJ could send me a wav file... ;)

You know I was worried about the begining when I read the comments about it. But when I heard it I laughed my ass off! It's his piece of work, he shouldn't have to change it. I like it as it is, it gives it a different light-hearted feel to it.

I simply... do not... understand what ... people like ... about his music.

... I ask you, ....... whynot? ..er.. it's best if you PM me, best if we talk person to person. I would just like to hear you out!

Just thought I'd point out to frobnitz, Ebonyks, Christopher Blue, and anyone else: There are some programs (e.g. Unphuck) that you can use to chop off chunks of MP3s without decoding/recoding (which would result in a bit of sound quality loss). I'd recommend doing that instead of decoding to wav, etc. It'd be a shame to mess up the rest of the song at all.

As for the remix: Yes, the intro is kind of amusing once or twice, but not something I'd want to hear every time through the playlist. So, guess I'll just circumsize my copy. :) The rest of the song is quite good, nothing particularly wrong with it, though it doesn't really have much to make it stand out from all the other trance that exists in this world. But that doesn't keep it from being enjoyable. Nice and sonically dense, it is.

*sniff*..........................It's beautiful................ :cry:

an indirect birthday gift from a complete stranger(I think)........ wow...

my birthday was on the 3rd, and I am now 16. Yay. :cry:

now, to the mix itself: the intro is a little bit bothering, after a few listens, so, I got the free program: mp3trim off the net, cut it at 16 seconds, and voilà!! It starts right after: "I'll sing it to you", right on the laa,la,la,laaaa,la,la,*skreech*,la,la-a-a-a-a thing. it now has a very prominent spot on my top playlist! :D:D:D

exeptional job Mr. FFmusicdj! :lol:

Yeah, do a search for mp3DirectCut. It's excellent.

I like the intro, it's kind of goofy.

Yet another great contribution from the Haroon-meister!

The intro came totally out of left field, and kinda irks me, but it by no means ruins the song. I REALLY dig that deep, evil voice that kicks in.

Well, for me, all ffmusic dj's stuff just has a real definitive feel to me . . . Ever since I've first heard his work it's really grown on me. He does a great job with making a great trance tune, but he makes it so much more than that by the way he adds in the melody, and adds in the different shades to it, and just everything. Nothing's overwhelming, everything's got its place, and sees the spotlight. It's hard to explain.

Anyways. :D Another great song of his, if you ask me. The intro struck me as a little odd when I first heard it, but it kinda grew on me, and I don't mind it now. The rest of the song is just really awesome.
