Oh the tears...

Holy Mother of....

moma....

I download this album, and get welcomed with a violin Beethoven ripoff, oh mother...
I love it when somebody totally unknown to me pops out of nowhere and brings one of the most epic songs I've ever heard in my life.

The arranges are perfect, by that I mean it, I cannot spot flaws (if you do then it's probably 100% intentional). The drumming, the progressions, the pianos, the trumpets, every single instrument's job is executed flawlessly. The progression at 1:38/2:21... they are beautiful... I don't even know how to express my love for this song...
This is how Fires of Hokkai should really be, this is the real "essence" of this song, パポス really managed to pull it out. This is how a pre-final battle stage should sound like. Seriously, it almost sounds like a song from Star Wars...

パポス is one of the greatest Touhou orchestra directors/arrangers my ears have been blessed to hear. He even beats Kitsune Workshop's yuki and Oriens' Rei, 100 to 0. Maybe even MORRIGAN.
The guy doesn't just "cover" the songs "a la" orchestra (best example is Scarlatto di Levante, who practically "covers" songs on orchestra), he adds a whole new feeling into them, I mean, just listen to that Cosmic Mind. THAT INTRO. OH GODD!! The piano, it's perfect, although it might sound a bit strange on first glance, believe me, I cannot think of a better way to help the progression of the song. The song really does scream "This is the LAST BATTLE!" "Give up, you can't win, pal. It's GAME OVER" That's why I picked this image, since it's the most evil image of Byakuren I could muster. This wins the most epic Cosmic Mind in my book, I doubt anyone will be able to best it, yes, I mean it. Not even MORRIGAN. パポス, marry me damn it.

I'm in tears.
I never thought I'd actually lay my ears on this... perfect song... god bless パポス.

.... Thank you, all of you, for watching. And yes, this is from C77.

EDIT: Video title edited, this sounds like the fucking end of the world, perfect way to end the year, this is NOT New Year's video though.
