Slow, beautiful, and breezy. It creates the image of looking towards an endless ocean, something out of Chrono Cross or something akin to that. I like it. :-)

Yeaaah, this is a really wonderful piece. I generally dig calm and chill stuff, but add piano on top of that? I'm sold.

And yes, I no longer want to throw my 3DS through a window now. Thanks for keeping me from wasting $170, Drakken!

I've been catching a lot of Ufouria on Rainwave and it has an amazing sound track. Very nice rendition here, and thanks for covering this relatively unknown game.

I love this song. I've never heard the original, but now I am wishing that I had. I can't help but picture a calm atmosphere when listening to this song. What I like most is the combination of my two favorite instruments: piano and oboe. The two of them make this song feel magical. Excellent work, I love it all!

Oooooo! A nice soft sounding mix. I like it a lot.

I remember watching a Let's Play of this game a while back. It really is obscure, and hopefully more people will remix this soundtrack.

Wow. If I had to pick a phrase to describe this, it would be "effortlessly beautiful." It just flows along so nicely. Definitely going on my easy listening playlist.

The piano really takes center stage here, with all other instrumentation in the background and mainly to accentuate the mood carried by the piano until a little before the halfway point, where the brass (& flute?) compliments the piano to add another layer and a sense of change. It has the feel of a short song, but what's there is sweet and well-executed.

Really is one of those peaceful, tranquil ReMixes that gets the tone right from the piano. You can feel like your floating in the breeze or resting in the sky with this one. Very nicely done.
