Addenda
Don't let the release date fool you; this arranged album turned out to be quite real. I'm sure that the promise of a Chrono Cross Guitar Arrangement would have one believing otherwise, but trust us on this one. Four years following the original printing of Sailing to the World, piano mastermind Masashi Hamauzu undertakes the task of arranging Yasunori Mitsuda's compositions. The result? Usual piano arrangement ritual: reworked tracks commiting themselves to the elegance of the originals, complete with the sacrifice of boldness in exchange for that subdued resplendence only made possible by the instrument. Indeed, while the arranger ensures that the album's melody lines are asserted, his work also involves slithering through mazes of subtleties and nuances to offer a refreshing experience to the listener. Also, although she is but a fledgling making her way into the music industry, player Naoko Endo soars with her performance on the piano. 'Typical' it may be, but this is no flawed descriptor when it comes to piano arrange albums. Fans of Sailing to the World should not hesitate to pick it up.
