Chrono Trigger The Brink of Time

Chrono Trigger: The Brink of Time summary

Chrono Trigger features what many consider not merely a good soundtrack, but Yasunori Mitsuda's best work. While that is certainly open to dispute, Mitsuda did mean for it to carry a unique style, which perhaps was obscured due to the limitations of the SNES/SFC. Wings of Time brought forth this jazzy feeling most clearly, and after CT was released, Mitsuda sought to bring out the essence of his work in an image album. Thus "Brink of Time" could very well represent what Mitsuda originally intended for CT. The album oozes with jazz - a possible turn-off for those who do not appreciate the genre's innovative qualities - and while the title track Chrono Trigger represents this feeling solidly, other tracks might seem slightly hollow to the uninitiated.

Notes & Factoids
  • The cover of this album sports, according to Mitsuda, an "American style" breakfast, with fried eggs and ample cutlery. Mitsuda's choice for this somewhat odd cover artwork is related directly to the album's music; as the arrangements of Chrono Trigger's music are mostly jazzy in nature, Mistuda found it appropriate to use a visual metaphor (a peculiarly American meal).
