Alrighty now...

Your remixes are just very amazing, they don't try to break new ground on purpose with each note like many other remixes do, but rather yours stays within the boundaries of the original piece but extends or adds to the emotion that the original piece had. To me this piece was always a symbol of Cecil heroic struggle for a better future, whether that was a future of being Red Wing Captain near the beginning, his new future as a fugitive of the throne, his new found future as a Paladin and so on, it was a song that always matched Cecil's struggle no matter what part of the game you were on. The slight choir in the background of this piece was actually the part that stood out the most to me, not because you included choir like most who remix this song in your fashion do, but rather because they weren't the spine of the piece, instead they were the supporting beams similar to how Cecil has his many comrades by his side in his struggle throughout the entire game no matter what kind of crazy task they had at hand, and that's kind of the mood I got from your remix that no matter what happens the fight will go on and his friends will be right under him for strength.

Now what makes this Remix even more special is how I said your remixes ever purposely break the boundaries of Video Game remixes, well this one did for me at least for bringing out the emotion that the original piece held for me and adding so much to the tune making it both nostalgic and pleasing to the ears. I may not have ever played through the SNES version of FF4 which I'm somewhat happy about as I heard the translation is off, but getting back on track, everything in this track was blended together with such passion and feeling I'm certain you have played most likely every incarnation of this great game. I believe that this remix is even better then the remix of this song "The Flying Machine" in OCRs FF4 Album, because rather then hitting the listener with a huge orchestra line, choir leading up the front, and everything else you'd expect from a remix on this song, you took a more calm(and less cliche) approach and didn't change what didn't need to be change, instead you just added in a very honorable manner that even Nobou himself may have to give you props on for making such a tribute to an amazing song.

Now why have I chosen to make such a long winded review of this song?
1. FF4 is one of my all time favorites.
2. This is one of my all time favorite songs.
3. I've listened to a good amount of your material, and which each song I feel like going back and playing some of these old games which you have chosen to grace with you talent over music.
4. I wanted you too know that you're going to be my first favorite Artist because you do more then just remix these songs from my childhood, you honor the original and take care with each note.

And for the love of god please submit this stuff to OCR, you have a lot more talent then a lot of what I've heard on there, in my personal opinion. And sorry if this Review is a little long for your liking but yeah after hearing all your stuff I had to give you what you deserved instead of the average NG Audio Review. Hopefully you enjoyed reading it if not hoping it'd end(actually I'll be amazed if you read it all lol...)

P.S. Sorry if my grammar was off, I was browsing Newgrounds at 3:30am before i went to bed saw you had a new one and decided to check it out.

Wow!

I don't know what to say.
Yes, i read it all and thanks big time for your review and vote.
I will look it up that OCR you are talking about and maybe i will post my music to that place as well.

And yes, i have playes every inch of that game and listening to every note played in the tracks of the game, so i feelt like composing something to tribute the awesome music.

Thanks again for your feedback.

Awesome.

I'm enjoying this. You made some damn nice touches to this theme. Like the ocarina-ish sound in the background, it's very good. Food to the ears~
As always, awesome job. This should've been the remake theme in FF4 DS. For some reason I just didn't like the piano in the DS version, just kept hitting same thing over and over acting as bass. Maybe it's just me though, I dunno. I'm off topic. This is a great remake.
