I don't often cover videogame music, as I prefer composing, but I just beat Radical Drea-- err.. Chrono Cross (the greatest Chrono Trigger fanfic, like ever! ) again, and felt this was necessary. There will be -one- more of these.

Ahaha, 'Chrono Trigger fanfic'. That's a good description of CC. (Although I'm personally a big fan of it, it does have issues...) This is also a good song.

Don't get me wrong, I love the game! Probably one of my favorite RPGs! It's just... so... bizarre in the storyline area (not as bad as Xenogears, but still completely bonzo towards the end, especially.) I kind of wish they hadn't tied it into Chrono Trigger at all, actually, because I think it could have been fantastic on its own.

Actually yeah, it would be good on its own. :o Even then it could perhaps be tidied up or have pacing altered a little, since it does kinda jump about wildly to my recollection. ... I dunno, hurf. I loved it when I first played it and thought it seemed pretty much perfect, but looking back on it now can notice shortcomings...

Yeah, I honestly felt exactly the same way as you. The pacing is so bizarre. Like... A lot of the time (especially dependent on which paths you chose) there would be points where I imagined Serge just throwing his hands up and going "Screw this, I have no idea what my investment in this is, I'm going to go back home and go to sleep even if I am a friggin' furry now!" only to be suddenly told something like "Oh, hey, we're going to Hermit's Hideaway... because! JUST DO IT!" I think a lot of that can be blamed on the development cycle. I think if they'd had another year, we'd have all the characters they cut out added back in, and maybe the ties to Chrono Trigger wouldn't have been so flimsy.I think it's still a solid game despite those shortcomings. The battle system is one of my favorites in any turnbased game, for instance, and the graphics and music are unmatched, but yeah... there's quite a few shortcomings. :(

The way you do world music sounds in this track is awesome..!

Aww, thanks! :D I love world music, so I end up making it inadvertently a lot. XD For once, it was purposeful, here!
