  1. OCR00089 - Phantasy Star IV "Millennial"

    Yep, space, fuzzy, and funky are all great ways to describe this early, crunchy pretzel-piece.
  2. Gotta give this another listen when those daytime summer thunderstorms roll around...a good song, it embodies "wind" to me.
  3. This starts out catchy and energetic, and then pans back a bit and remains comfortably on cruise control. I'd probably let this sit on repeat once or twice before wanting something with a bit more progression and change-up throughout.
  4. To me it's a little too much peppering with those lyrical snippets. More restraint would've produced a better result. I can't recall the exact title but there have been previous Zelda remixes that made good use of Link's "charge-forward" yell in a similar manner.
  5. OCR01382 - Human Race "Bando alle Seghe"

    This is eminently listen-able. I'm a softie for nostalgia-tinged pieces of-course, but it creates a nice, buzzy "mindspace".
  6. OCR03655 - Secret of Mana "The Still Night Stirs"

    This is lovely. Tripp seems to be doing a great job of embodying something like a real-life Erana! She's got a really quaint, nostalgic and fun website too. Great piece...it really does make you feel calmer and happier after listening!
  7. OCR03657 - Secret of Mana "Under Cover of Night"

    This has a Simon Belmont slaying baddies on Halloween feel to it. I like it! Get a bit of that old geckoYamori vibe.
  8. A soft and somewhat bittersweet tune! Ganon should retire and setup a nice Stardew-esque Valley farm for hisself, instead of all this world-conquering brewha. Then he wouldn't need to feel wistful over this!
  9. So relaxing. Makes me look forward to spring and return of green and birdsongs.
  10. Soaring, clean, warm and uplifting. Move from the roots to the heavens, with sunlight filtering betwixt those great boughs, and bird calls in the distance, beneath a brightening sky.
  11. OCR03649 - Secret of Mana "Footsteps to Destiny"

    Amazing - has epic final boss battle scenes dancing behind my ears, my head nodding, my toes tapping. Great work.
  12. OCR03652 - Secret of Mana "Whispers"

    Would've liked this much more but for those vocals. I can see if it was artist intent to convey a certain sort of noir/nostalgia cheesiness (like a really bad love scene montage from an 80's flick or something) but played seriously, it really grates.
  13. Dunno how I missed this gem when it was first released, but I'm glad to have found it. Great piece, dazzling musicianship all around, and of course Wise's sax is delicious to listen to.
  14. Gave it a few listens, this is an easy mix to have on repeat. I especially like the bird song at the end. Definitely has a lovely, loungey vibe - you can see yourself relaxing on a warm beach somewhere, enjoying a cocktail at sunset to this.
  15. OCR01551 - Parasite Eve 'Beauty's Abomination'

    Reuben's mixes are absolutely dense with thick emotion - the stuff you hear in your head when you're close to tears in the rain. But his songs also dispel the grey clouds and let beams of warm, bright light in by their end.
