Trouble with the audio sample?

Theme of CRISIS CORE "Successor" is an instrumental piece composed by Takeharu Ishimoto for the Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- Original Soundtrack. It appears throughout the game in seven other versions, at moments considered significant to the story or where emotions come into play. "Successor" also serves as the base of other tracks from the soundtrack, like "Burden of Truth" and "The Burdened". Although there are seven official versions of this theme, there is one called "Theme of CRISIS CORE" that was released on a special disk that attendees of the 2007 Square-Enix Party received. "Successor" plays during the title screen.
