Great Moments In Video Game Music: Chrono Cross – Dream of the Shore Near Another World

I thought I would do a random post about a song I listen to at least once a week and I will do other posts with other great songs at intermittent intervals.

This is from Chrono Cross, the “sequel” to Chrono Trigger that appeared on the PS 1 back in 2000. A great RPG that got pooped on (even by me) for derailing Chrono Trigger’s story, but one aspect that held up over time was the music, this track in particular. The mournful, melancholy drone can make even the most jaded weep and the most superficial suddenly finding themselves contemplating the complexities of the universe.

Enjoy!

  1. Chrono Cross and its music. Beautiful.

    This seems like a cool weekly installment. I think you guys should also do some Neotokyo music. That Half-Life 2 mod is unbelievably outstanding. Know about it.

  2. Mm, I haven’t played the games, so it has no ’emotional’ attachment for me. But if this is what you’re looking for, I can score stuff like this in 3 minutes without question. Still pretty cute!

  3. Chrono Cross did have awesome music indeed.

    My favorite games are the ones with epic soundtracks. Phoenix Wright ftw.
