Short but sweet piece from Lunar by Kaijin - nice to see a mixer of primarily Squaresoft RPG's venture into the wonderful world of non-SS role-playing soundtrackdom, and what better way to do it than through Iwadare's work. The arrangement itself here is very nice, with some tempo modification work that's a good change of pace, and a lot of emotion - it's basically a rock ballad that's heavy on the pop strings and piano. The jazz guitar patch used here is not up to Kaijin's standards, and did stick out to my ears, though it's played well. There's a tad bit of hiss noticeable at the trailing fade on the ending as well - I think Tim put more energy into the quality of the arrangement than the sound quality / mix itself, though it's certainly still above average and definitely musical. There's always a fine balance between substance & style, content and what one might call "polish" and I think the scales are slightly tipped in favor of the arrangement in this case. Then again, rock ballads ain't a piece a cake to cover with electronic means, and Tim's one of the only fellas that does 'em and does 'em well, so credit given where credit is due. Pieces of this melody actually sound like the beginning of the opener from Mahou Tsukai Tai (anime), "Senobi wo Shite" (just an observation). I'm happy enough that Kaijin's lent his skills to some fine Lunar mixage that I can overlook the nitpicks I mentioned for the larger picture, which is a good, short arrangement of an undervalued piece. Kaijin writes:
"This mix is from the Lunar The Silver Star series, meaning it includes songs from both Lunar The Silver Star and Lunar The Silver Star Story Complete. The track plays them in this order: "Meribia" from Lunar The Silver Star Story, "Meribia" from Lunar the Silver Star, and finally it finishes with a small surprise, my interpretation of one of Dale North's Lunar arrangements."
Recommended, if you're into good rock ballads and Mr. Iwadare's ever-impressive material.
