Quinn Fox leaves the realm of Phantasy Star (temporarily? wait and see . . . ) to foray into the territories of Iwadare and his lovely Lunar works. Note that I am adamant that both the Lunar and Lunar 2 Sega CD soundtracks were far better than their Playstation counterparts. Don't know how that happened, but for me at least, it certainly did. Thankfully, Quinn used the Sega CD version of Eternal Blue as his primary source for this ambient, pensive, deliberate mix that's very atmospheric and intermittent in its two and a half minutes. Judges digged it well enough, though correctly pointed out that it is mixed a bit low - you might have to give a whirl to the ole volume knob to hear Mr. Fox's details, but it's worth it. Brief, ephemeral work - I find myself enjoying these sorts of pieces, despite my inner need for a bit more form and direction. It's essentially the difference between true BGM and music that is more in your face, and more narrative. In the end, my ears have a place for both - hope yours do too.

Sadly, the ending isn't doing it for me. Would really like to hear a reworked ending on this. Otherwise it's a nice piece.

While overall it's really good, I think the two things that could've been better were the cymbal crashes (they didn't sound quite that clear), and it didn't seem to really go anywhere with the ending.
Nevertheless, it's a great mix. And I really would like to see more remixes come from Lunar EB. KF

The strings are great, and the ambient chimes and soft harp really set the mood. A little to the left; ah there we go... ^_^
However, the ending is a total copout and really did the rest of the mix a disservice, IMO. I would have even preferred a fade, as that would have fit the style better, but the sudden single basson note and drum hit (soft as it was) was jarring, and even though I got a pretty good massage, I was kinda hoping for a happy ending (heh, jk).

This one's nice and calm
Reminds me of Brave Fencer Musashi in a way
I just love this one, that suspended symbol might be used just one too many times but I still love this song
It's definatly one of my favourites

As it is, anyone who knows this music well, or can pop in their Sega CD and check it out will immediately hear that I did much, MUCH more than just plug this in through MIDI and let it fly. Many new parts were added, and it was made completely from ear.
Once again, my thanks to the listeners and reviewers. Have a great one!

This is much more mellow then any of the other pieces I have reviewed today. Very soothing and soft with chimes, lite cymbal crashes, and the whole bit. Not exactly my favorite genre of music, but possibly something I could fall asleep to. Nice work Quinn Fox, keep them coming. I [b]do[/b] need to sleep, after all.
