From Disposer and Thumper comes this sweet rock/ballad arrangement from relatively obscure Namco Gameboy RPG "Great Greed" - I did a little background research and it seems this game has quite an excellent reputation amongst those who've actually played it. One of the little gems of the past that get overlooked under tides of franchise titles and sequels, no doubt. Introing with a delicate, folksy nylon guitar pattern, minimal acoustic drums surreptitiously work their way in, then the power lead makes its entrance at 0'24" with a great, slow heroic melody. Excellent tone on the electric here, with the body and punch of many a great classic rock riff. Lest you write this off as a good but limited one-trick pony, the arrangement then goes in an orchestral/hybrid direction with some solo strings, flute, piano, and even brass. This middle section does worlds of good in the versatility and interest departments, and melds seamlessly with the lyrical guitar. The ending is a little unorthodox and doesn't seem to wait for the progression to fully work its way out to the closure one might expect, but hey, this was a unique and not overly jarring way to conclude, so points for creativity. Overall, this is a brief but very well planned-out and executed mix. One gets the feeling that those involved wanted to give this game and its soundtrack an homage and shine a little light, and this is an excellent way to have realized those aims. Searching, melodious, introspective, dramatic, and covering interesting source material, this is a great mix. Don't make a mistake and overlook it as you might have done with the game; it's well worth your time.
