Alright! Allow me to express my distinct satisfaction that the music of Phantasy Star, after a good long while, again visits our collection. In this case, it's an orchestral medley from the fourth installment, brought to us by Vampire Hunter Dan. Capcomian that I am, when I think "Vampire Hunter" I actually think Darkstalkers, not the canonical anime, and when I think Dan, I think raging, hot pink gadoken action. VHD takes on the title theme initially, then progresses from there, with energetic symphonic velocity. Legato string chords intro, joined by oboe, both of which continue to play pivotal roles. You've also got chromatic and mixed percussion, fantastic Dances with Wolves French Horns, winds, and a variety of well-selected string articulations, all mixed on a consistent sonic stage that's really rather impressive; you could add sampled applause at the end and it'd potentially fool some people, and would be well-deserved, regardless. The Phantasy Star soundtracks in general are rough territory because few tracks feature a solidified, complete verse/chorus structure - there's usually a single motif, bridged not by what I would deign to call verses, but patterns. Mr. Barnaba's played intelligently with components from PS4's OST to put together something that flows with a more traditional sense of development and direction, and that's the biggest accomplishment I think this mix represents. Moreover, the arrangement and production are spot-on and segue effortlessly (and rapidly, at that) from slow to fast, piano to forte, in a very fluid, graceful arc. There's not much else to say - it's Phantasy Star 4, it's orchestral, and it's excellent.
