Several of the chords are retained without change for a bit longer than I would say is usual, and the result is a sense of intrigue and unexpectedness. This is also one of the few GL mixes I've actually liked on the first listen. Either it's more listener friendly or I'm just getting more used to his style.
Gray and I didn't see eye-to-eye on the very last chord. Obviously, he was of the mindset that what you heard was the most fitting ending, while I fancied something a bit louder or resolute, with more emphasis in the lower register. I think this was the point of humorous discussion between the two of us for quite some time while he was reworking this piece.
I heard a lot going on in this piece while he took his second effort at it, listening to his work in progress at many points during the process. Some decisions he made were better than others. Gray and I also have a running debate on the prominence of natural law in various aspects of life--at least I can use this mix as sort of tongue-in-cheek backup for my argument that his natural refining process yielded the best of possible works he was to come up with.
Like I noted in my comments in the WIP thread, one of the simplest yet most effective changes he made was to shift the bassline down an octave. I felt it added presence and afforded the mix some of the richness that Gray is known to have in regular abundance in his work. Percussion rolls off nicer than it did in his original.
Better use of the strings and pads to create depth. And high praises for summarily ignoring any of that ill-wrought advice concerning the harp glissando in the wrong key. I can't think of anything better to say than Freemind's last comment, so I will echo it. I think I've learned from him, too--not just about the genre he's chosen to explore, and what his influences are, but how to think a bit more critically about what I write.
So, Mr. Yep, savin' the big review for VGMix, but for now I found the original in-game version of the song forgettable, but Gray Lightning changes that. I strongly agree with freemind--there's obviously a lot of imagination in this mix, and GL's stuff tends to have the effect of triggering your own imagination, sending you soaring across luscious landscapes Kudos, GL!
Not much words Finally a great remix reaches the OC list And is Gray's remix.. Intro is almost angelic, sounds like Enya but feels like it's rising to something bigger. The opening beat at is interesting, as are the chimes that soon follow. I like the strings at , very cinematic and strong. Percussion shifts well at , setting the tone for a new section.
This next section bounces around a lot, very interesting once your ears get used to it. The bassline is alright, no real complaints. The rest of the song varies a bit but it's similiar to the first parts. I like the background vocals that return.
The ending is a little sudden with that final hard drum beat. I might get used to that and like it as I listen to the song more often. My main complaint is that tempo and volume often shift without much warning.
It has a definite cinematic feel which shifts from soothing to strong and back. I like this the more I listen to it, definitely worth a download.

I'm not referring to the voices or any of the electronic stuff.
It doesn't get any better than this from what I've heard. Anyone trying to remix this song now should just stop. You have no chance of doing better than this. Diggin this. Many interesting sounds are being used.
You guys know how to use drums well and included a sweet guitar and cool solos. I love the ending. Awesome work! Ah, yes! A Phantasy Star remix of any calibre is like nectar of the gods for me--I think the Phantasy Star series has the best game music ever, hands down. The guitar riffs are perfect for this song.
They could have gone the more industrial way with this one, but the dark, moody metal guitar really suits this song. I agree with DJP that the drums could have been more apparent I think this track would have ruled with some rockin' metal drums, something kind of frantic, fast and noisy, but it's still good as it is.

I would love a good remix of the Battle music for Phantasy Star 2 xD.
The only one I've heard is in Phantasy Star Generations 2. That one's kind of amazing. I've heard some really good fan remixes though, most of them put the PS: Generations tracks to shame. Please Pm them to me or something, I'd love to hear them. I feel they could of done better with it.

Let It Shine feat.Sep 04, · Danny Wright has a style that I gravitate toward when I'm needing to recharge my battery. This is an album I've purchased several times over the years (for myself and as a gift) and keep coming back to when I feel like having a lazy day at home, when I need to unwind after a long day, or when I'd like to put something soft (but not sleepy) on in the background to read/talk/work to/5(39).
