CC/CT Arrange Finally Happening

And we have preview sound clips.  Honest to god some of these are simply perfect.  I'm a bit iffy on some of the vocals, but overall I think this album shows some extraordinary promise....a distant faraway promise....Hah.

I'm open minded as to vocals, and they sound very pretty in the samples (no surprise, Laura Shigihara is wonderful), but my only concern with a few tracks is the same as those in memoria: when the vocals are such a focal point that I can't hear the original melody.

I sure do like the samples though.

Also Promise, the Legend of Mana album, is great, and when I have a computer with Internet again I'm totally going to talk more about it.

I don't want to be hyperbolic, but I am finally listening to this (finally he says, hours after release).

I was a little gunshy after the samples had a LOT of vocals with occasioanlly cheesy lyrics.

But this album is fucking fantastic. I'm on Marbule right now and sort of marveling at how out of this world the arrangement and the performance is.

Really happy with the track selection. Going to order this tommorrow. I am not however that happy about Mitsuda's habit of adding vocals on his arrange albums,but "I'll deal".

Really happy with the track selection.

My copy hasn't arrived yet, but in a perfect world, honestly, I'd have dropped this whole CT+CC thing and done CC only, and I'd have included:

"Predicament" 2-12
"People Seized With Life" (or "Those Imprisoned By Fate") 2-16
"Garden of the Gods" 3-01
"Chronopolis" 3-02
"Star-Stealing Girl" 3-06


Well, at least Frozen Flame made it. But Chrono Cross's source material has so much more to offer. I'll take what I can get.

Totally agree with that track selection, especially the last three.

I would have loved to have seen Garden of the Gods on there. As for Star-Stealing Girl, it's a small consolation, but there is a riff from it in Schala's Theme (at around 2:33).

The one thing I'm kind of meh on is Sarah Alainn. I would have preferred to hear Joanne Hogg, or hell, more Laura Shigihara. Other than that, it's a beautiful and long overdue arrange album.

My main issue is the brevity of the album. I love what's on there, I just wish there was more, especially from Chrono Cross.

If it sells enough, maybe he'll do a pt2 that's all CC? <3 <3 <3

Also, to the above ... idk if Joanne Hogg would fit with CC, even though I LOOOOVE her. I wonder what Emi Evans could do with Garden of the Gods?

Augh...ten tracks...?  That's not enough... T___T

Hopefully they do a second one.  Damn this was too short for something that was way overdue.
I was definitely happy to hear Radical Dreamers, despite the simplicity the CC ending is absolutely beautiful, so it's nice to have an alternate version that's a bit more 'filled up'.  It's overall very solid though.  Even tracks I wasn't even crazy for the originals on were beautifully done here.  Great stuff, decent vocals (not always necessary but still lovely), thanks for all the fish.

Here's hoping for another album one day (lol, in another 15 years ;_; ).
