Wouldn’t it be amazing if Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, Xenogears) collaborated with Dream Theater? Well, I think that there might be some evidence to this baseless claim that I may or may not have come up with! Dream Theater recently released their dystopian rock opera epic, the Astonishing, and all around it’s a fantastic double album. But there’s a song on there that sounds very similar to a track that would appear on the Chrono Trigger soundtrack. Don’t believe me? Just take a listen to the intro!
Now listen to this Chrono Trigger track.
They sound very similar. It sounds like that Yasunori Mitsuda and Dream Theater indeed collaborated on the Astonishing.
