    I never played FF7, but if any fellow nerds played Super Mario RPG, if you collect the crystal and get into the locked door in Monstro Town you can battle a dude from FF7. I recognize that badass arpeggio from there.

    also, I like the cheeky haphazard ends to some of the tracks. Fuck it, we’re stopping here.

    Never been huge a huge RPG fan, in fact when I was a kid I always wondered who would want to play that crap but then I saw my cousin play Super Mario RPG and I was like, wow this is actually pretty cool.

    I don't think I ever played SMRPG myself but I really liked the Mario & Luigi RPGs on Gameboy.

    Super Mario RPG was my JAM as a kid. Still is.



    So is this song. I have yet to see anybody try and cover the rap part of this song.

    At the risk of being a pedantic fuck, Culex isn't really from any FF game, he's more an homage to the series of Final Fantasy. The battle music that plays when you fight him is from Final Fantasy 4. *pushes up glasses*

    Anyway, it's such a killer game

    Lol that’s fine, I just recognized a gnarly arpeggio, and yes killer game. Underrated for sure

    No idea why I was able to see this on the Periphery youtube channel but get it while it's HOT

    Finally listened to some of the bulb archives. Definitely brought back memories of earlier guitar days :)

    The Final Fantasy covers actually reminded me that sometime within the past few years, a podcast I listen to dedicated to video game music called Sounds of Play played one is the FFVII covers. The host Leon credited Misha, but wasnt sure of his background.
    Misha, you should go on there. They have composers guest on there regularly, and since you've gotten play already...

    Good lord that is some fast transitioning from tapping and back to normal playing. Every time I watch a periphery playthrough video I feel like I suck at guitar.

    What's wrong with the mix on P2? I always thought it was pretty good, although knowing Nolly he'll definitely find a way to make it 10x better

    Lol, and here I am using Scarlet as my benchmark song every time I'm trying new headphones or speakers and apparently the mixing on that album is shoddy :lol:

    I honestly really hope that's not real. P2 sounded mindblowing when it came out and still sounds great. I think a remix/remaster would take away some of the magic that album has. Kinda weird that they're so hesitant on touching P1 even though that album really could benefit from a facelift.

    I fully agree. P2 probably has my favorite mix of all time; Taylor is an incredible engineer.
    However....I'm not surprised, since I know the band looks back on that album much less fondly. I couldn't care less if they do remix it because it's not like the original is going anywhere and there's not a doubt in my mind a Nolly remix would kick ass- more power too 'em. I'm just also surprised P1 doesn't seem to be coming first.
    I know they were playing around with Icarus and that sounded great but Misha at least seemed really...not thrilled on that project :lol:

    P2 production is slick (I mean its Taylor Larson, cmooon). but I feel like it's maybe a bit too guitar orientated for my liking.

    For me the Periphery sound should have "bigger" sounding bass as well as drums.

    Just my 2c. I'd also be interested to see what a different mix engineer as well as a non self produced album would sound like.

    If Taylor thinks Periphery’s future albums needed a producer or mixer he must be completely unaware of all the big bands going DIY releasing thin lifeless sounding albums. Periphery is a textbook example of doing it right. Maybe he’s just being negative cause he thought he’d produce future works.

    Here I am just enjoying everything and thinking it sounds good and apparently I'm wrong lmao. I use Blood Eagle as a bass reference and I'll keep doing that so
