OCR00876 - Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind 'Island of Edges'

Morrowind 'Island of Edges'

Having never played any version of Morrowind, chances are I haven't heard the original to this. Well, listen time... The Wingless starts this mix out with some cool ambience with bells. Soon, strings and piano fade into place. At about 0:49, it then all fades out. I really didn't like how it's silent for a full 5 seconds for it all fades back in at 0:54, but with a beautiful flute and guitar. This sort of arrangement builds up upon itself, and it's just stunningly beautiful. Even if you haven't ever even played Morrowind, this ReMix IS for you. It's just soooo beautiful. My favorite by The Wingless thus far.

This is beautiful. I haven't actually played Morrowind, but my brother got it and I watched him play a while. It's got real nice music that repeats a lot. I can't say if I heard this before, but it sounds familiar. The samples used in this mix are quality throughout, the pauses in the music are used to great affect, and the ambience sounds used are awesome. I love the bells in the beginning and the rain samples at 2:30; they just totally transport me into the world of Morrowind. Music and games that can do that to me are awesome in my book. Super stuff. Download if you enjoy music.

Ok kiddies....

This, is a dramatic understatement.

Right now, I'm gonna be under the assumption, most of you HAVEN'T played this game. That's your first mistake. This game is a graphical and musical masterpiece, and it's so indepth it'll keep you busy for literally a good few monthes if you tried to do ALL the quests. BUt this isn't a review of the game. This is a review of this song. A remix of the main theme. Which is already, by itself, one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, and the exact reason I played the game for more then 10 minutes. This song is AMAZING.

AMAZING SONG.

BEAUTIFUL

DL IT

DL IT

NOW!

the end

Not Bad

To express my opinion on this remix would just be to reiterate the opinion of everybody who posted on this thread before me. I would just like to express my total agreement on Wingless's sentiments:
"I hated the fact that such a large game has the same damn tracks looping ad nauseum, and none of it is context sensitive..."

What the hell were they(the makers of Morrowind) thinking?

Very pretty. So atmospheric...it really manipulates your emotions beautifully. I wish I had played Morrowind now.
Very nice. It's very...wingless! ^_^ He's got his own style, yes. Great stuff.

I played Morrowing for close to 500 hours. I loved it. I stole every piece of armor I could find, I trained every skill I could, just to level up and become uber. In fact, beating the game was kind of anticlimactic it was so easy.

So I heard this song more times than I've heard my own name. I don't think this rearrangement does justice to the feelings the gameplay would evoke in me, though. Having a city come into view on a crisp dawn, I liked the brazen sound. I want trumpets and drums instead of winds and subtlety.

But that's just me. I think this remix was well executed it just took a different direction than I would have hoped Good job none-the-less.

I've never heard the original, but I do know this: The Wingless and variety go together like peanut butter and jelly! Hey, J. A.? Will you ever post Amalgamalia or Cavalcadia on OC ReMix? We need more inspriation from you here!

Back on topic, excellent mix!! :D Download it and relax.

I'm not really sure myself. I know Jeremy Soule (Secret of Evermore, Icewind Dale II, etc) was assigned to compose all of the tracks for orchestra, which he did very nicely. Why there were no area themes or event themes, who knows?

And *stop* crediting it as an XBOX game! It's a PC game ported to the XBOX to satisfy those console freaks who don't have powerful enough PCs. =P

I really must repeat what has already been said above... if you haven't played this game... PLAY IT!!! It is awesome super-ness. The game is so completely open-ended, you can kill whoever you want whenever ( that's if you're skilled enough not to get killed first =p ), you can progress through the game as a theif, a robber, a mage, a glory-seeking warrior, and so many other possible ways. Any item you see onscreen, you can pick up and use, be it mushrooms & moss in a field or the weapons lying around in a amoury shop ( though that would be called theft =p ). Huge game world, so detailed, you don't even have to follow the main quest if you don't want to... GET IT ALREADY!!!
^^
