All but one are very techno-y - reminds me of some of the megaman games for some reason - but very nice as well :)

The Enemy Intensifies

Time to Fight

Good work, excellent synth quality, excellent dedication, and fair stylistic diversity. Good overall. However, music is one of the most important aspects of an RPG, so I do have some criticisms:

1) None of these four excerpts have strong melodies. Despite the high production values, the actual content of the music is therefore harder for me to relate with. The Chrono series music is famous for its unforgettable melodies, and I'd like to see Crisis take up the mantle on that one. Any or all of these pieces could be reworked to have greater melodic weight. This is by far my biggest comment: More MELODY !!

2) The Enemy Intensifies seems a bit disorganized, like the proverbial orchestra is a spinning wheel that has just lost its hubcap and is starting to vibrate badly. If this were real music, I would blame the conductor, but knowing that it is on synths, I'd say you need to reevaluate this piece completely.

Let me also take a sec to point out that Chrono Crisis is by far the fan game that excites me the most. I am really looking forward to it, which is why I am so eager to offer any criticism at all.

I seem to do this all too often, but I have to agree with Lord J. (By often I mean agreeing with other posters).

Music is an important part of RPGs. While all these tracks, as well as the new track you posted today, are excellent in quality they lack that special something. They lack, I don't want to say Melody(even though it's probably the right word), memorability (is that a word?).

What I mean is none of the songs, after listening to them, could I whistle the tune. None of them stuck with me, to make me whistle them after I had heard them. The only one that came close was Time to Fight.

To me that's what makes great music.

I still catch myself whistling songs from CT and CC, even though I haven't played them in ages.

Great work on the songs, but work on the melodies? I guess, so the tunes get stuck into my head and I can't stop whistling them!  :lol:

To counterpoint Glennleo, I've heard your Sacred Forest theme before and I like it hands down above the others. Not every song needs a melody, and this is one of them--in contrast to the other demoed songs (in my humble opinion).
