Nier Automata in 2017! I'm ready!! 

 

Somehow, they managed to get a lot of big names working on this title. Even if they didn't, MONACA and Emi Evans are killing it.

I enjoy the acoustic guitar in the English version too. What a gorgeous sound.

Nice new headphones, topnotch playback for topnotch recordings... Aaaand let's play 128 kbps Tree of Savior MP3s. They're awesome.

These videos from the Nier concert are mindblowing. I've always enjoyed Kaine / Salvation, but never as much as the live arrangement! Those strings could kill me :'DDD and I would die happy

 

Kaine / Salvation arranged by MONACA, NieR: Gestalt and Replicant

And Nami Nakagawa with Automata's battle theme! I loved her work on Drakengard 3 and others before, but is that an incredible vocal range!

The long-awaited Chrono Trigger/Cross arrangement album finally did happen... sort of. I was paying on and off attention, so it escaped my notice for a year. "To Far Away Times," a musical sequel to the 3 arcs in Chrono Cross' soundtrack. Most tracks have been coarranged by guests--not necessarily a bad thing, but it may disappoint people who were looking for a concentrated effort from Yasunori Mitsuda. 

 

 

 

This one's an instrumental from another performance, but they released a fantastic version with vocals from Laura Shigihara. Yes, indie Laura Shigihara who worked on Plants vs. Zombies, and To The Moon; I had to double check too. Following that, the arrangements are vocal-heavy this time, including renditions of Time's Scar, Radical Dreamers (well, yeah), and a few others. Oh, and that Bend of Time clip I posted long ago FINALLY got its full version, would you have it!

 

It's different, it's high quality, it's nice. I only wouldn't say it's the Chrono Album to Rule Them All like I had hoped. To start with, the Radical Dreamers remaster from Colours of Light was already more than good, and I didn't feel especially that there needed to be another.

 

Better than brink of time tho, I tell you what

People don't like the Marbule arrangement as much. Why not? I think it's one of the best ones.

 

 

 

VGM could use more accordions. Also tub bells, ocarinas and acoustic guitars--that combination. And while I'm along this train of thought, ditch the battle-saxophone haters too.

Millennial Fair's famous other work, the Xenogears album CREID, or, why VGM enthusiasts were drooling over the Chrono release. More Celtic influences abound.

 

 

Excellent CD. I wonder why I'd never heard of this before.

I always have a list of songs to run through wherever a new pair of speakers or headphones is concerned. Umm, maybe "wherever a new pair of speakers/headphones" makes it seem a strangely common occurrence. See I pretty much maxed out my credit card this month because my brother wanted to collect a fifth pair of headphones, among some other frivolous garbage. It's not really me!

 

Anyway, the list includes both some of the best and worst audio I have on file.

 

Good:

Repulsa from God Eater & Rage Burst 2

Senbonzakura from Vocalo Zanmai

Radical Dreamers remastered

 

In between:

The Last Song from Drakengard 3

Class--CIEL_NOSURGE; from Genometric Concert

 

Uh oh:

Snow in Summer from NieR (still legitimately one of the best soundtracks but lol this song)

Seere's Prayer -In the Sky- from Drakengard 3 DLC: always gotta do it

Twilight from Tree of Savior

Now that FFXV video up there sounds awful! Darn if I don't like it though, it's great. It's probably just the video.
