Project Majestic Mix Gold Edition

Addenda
Four years in the making, a project that you could theoretically have heard about as long ago as 1998 and constantly covered by sites like RPGamer, Project Majestic Mix was based on a single person (Stephen Kennedy)'s aspirations to create a professional videogame remix album. It took them long enough, but it also brought forth such other groups like OneUp Studios. The actual album does what most gaming fans would expect it to: remix Nobuo Uematsu's works. The choice of tracks seem the most obvious, though they focus on older games in the series rather than the newer titles, which is a good hint at the remixers' preferences. Songs vary from classical tracks that try to bridge the epic sound that Uematsu often places within his works, to more simple (but more refined) dance, and the occasional completely unique implementations of Dale North. One might take note of the Final Fantasy VII Costa del Sol remix by the OneUp Mushrooms, which is an actual band for the studios of the same name. Sadly, sampling in the more notorious tracks like One-Winged Angel leaves much to be desired, coming off as a half-assed attempt at recreating its grandeur rather than be a unique remix. Other tracks fare much better: the Final Fantasy VI ending theme is hardly a bad listen. Eventually, though, the dance tracks seem to make the most of the remixers' skills, since they probably have the most experience with creating rhythmic, repetitive tracks that don't contain all too much of the professional complexity of an experienced composer - though many of these guys do actually know what they're doing.
