Well what more can I ask, with the ticket being only $39 for me, as compared to maybe the Final Fantasy Live concert that is easily twice as good but double the price… Ah but that is an unfair comparison.

Adrian Tan, the music director did a wonderful job last night. Keeping the musician’s spirit high, although the concert house is only half filled. While the music is good, I can feel a sense of disappointment along with the music, it gradually disappeared along with the night but it left me a rather bad after taste.

Things did turnout to be better with individual musicians are allowed to show their stuff, like during the performance of the music from echochrome. The Strings were featured in this music and they did well to keep my attention despite there being a game play demo on screen.

If there is one song that I must point out, then it must be Cruel Angel Thesis. The first time they play it before the intermission… It’s a mess, with the tempo going fast then slow… and then fast… it’s as if they are adjusting… A very uncomfortable performances it is… The encore version on the other hand was better, way better. I can feel it.

Eyes On Me, turns out to be the  best played song for me… Why? Maybe I’m just bias… :p

Overall, I must say this is an  agreeable performance. With the team of musician pumping out quite a sound even with just 15 of them not counting the Music Director.
