VGM Of The Day #7 Chrono Trigger: Tyrano's Lair

Another day, another song that belongs to a fantastic soundtrack. Chrono Trigger is a JRPG that even JRPG haters seem to love because it was a JRPG way ahead of it's time for a number of reasons, but I am not going to go on about that. Instead we are going to look at one of it's greatest songs.

The second time you arrive during the prehistoric period, you come to find out that Ayla is planning an assault on the Tyrano Lair to take on Azala for the second and final time. You arrive at the island that is surrounded by lava with the lair towering over the party, you enter the Tyrano's Lair and this masterpiece of a song plays

The song begins with a great organ piece to start the tension, while also telling you that this is going be just as big as going through Magus's castle. After all that buildup, the next section takes over with a nice combination of trumpet, guitar, bass and drums. A great part because not only does it keep up the tension but adds in excitement to go along with all the fights with the reptiles. After that the ending of the song quietly ends off the song and loops back to the middle section.

This song is a perfect way to give the intense emotions needed for the lair. The only thing that could make this section better is if they used this theme in all the fights, I remember some fights did, but I feel like this song should not be interrupted by the battle music except for the bosses. I don't know, maybe I am just be picky.

Note: Once again I did not upload the song, it was uploaded by SupraDarky
