Mr. Ansari, who not coincidentally also gave us our first Metroid Prime ReMix, returns to the world of Samus Aran yet again, this time breaking new ground with an arrangement from MP2. Perhaps we'll see him threepeat next year when MP3 hits the Wii, but in the meantime Echoes gets the Darkesword treatment with this primarily mellow soundtrackish piece that blends delicate piano and mono/sine synths with oboe, orchestral percussions, strings, and most notably an industrial percussive effect/scratch that sounds like it could have been borrowed from Trent Reznor's personal sound library, but jives well with the rest of the ensemble. There's elements here, particularly with the gentle piano and delayed, cross-panned sine synth that channel Wingless at times, but this scratch effect and numerous other details definitely give it that distinct "Shariq" vibe. There's a heartbeat of sorts in the hi-hat pattern, panned right, that stays steady throughout the arrangement (might have been fun to vary it up all the sudden towards the end, for a more climactic percussive track), on top of which elements are subtracted and added in logical but creative fashion for the 4+ minute duration. I'd actually like to see Shariq add more edgier, industrial components like the afforementioned scratch effect; his sound has historically been on the shimmering, pristine side, and that's worked quite well to date, but it'd be interesting to see where he could take things in terms of more unorthodox DSP and aggressive texturing. Perhaps this represents a step in that direction, but even if it doesn't, it's very atmospheric, extraplanetary work that functions effectively in this specific context. This is a mature, moody, and very textural mix from Darkesword, which suits the source material perfectly and gives Kenji Yamamoto afficionados yet another gem.
