"Magus' Theme" by Yasunori Mitsuda Is my all time favorite piece from Chrono Trigger and also one of my straight up favorite pieces of all time.

The kind of vibe that Yasunori created with his piece has never been done better to my knowledge and fits perfectly with Magus' character. In fact, I would say that that piece above all else makes Magus the character that he is.

Magus Returns is my attempt to emulate what Yasunori did with his great piece. I hope you enjoy it.

If I had just listened to this without knowing Magus's theme influenced it, I wouldn't have made the connection. I think whats really missing in this is a counter melody, or at least a higher part to pop in at certain parts, kinda like what the brass part did in the original.

as far as audio quality goes you did a great job and as far as taking an exsisting song and elaberating on it to make it your own you did a great job. and again everything you set out to do you did but i almost think that what is missing is that sense of originality you made it your own but at the same time you didn't so my advice would be to try to write a similar song but make it your song influenced by somthing in your own life or for somthing such as a game.
i wish you good luck for the future and hope your succesful. you are talented just need to think more out of the box. and also remember this is constructive criticism not me disliking your song

Hey what's up. Thanx for the review, and sorry for taking so long to reply. I definitely hear what you are saying about originality. I did rely on the original song for a lot in terms of overall structure and feel. One thing that made it easy to emulate the original was using the same scale. Still though, I feel that I added some elements that weren't present in the original, specifically the rock drumming and a more aggressive/metal feel. But you are right, it is more of a tribute to the original than a fully legitimate song.

Anyways, iv got lots of old original material that Iv been meaning to upload once I get around to resampling it at the proper sample rate.
