"Zelda's Lullaby needed some love, blah blah blah. Started and finished this mix in less than a day (a new record for me :P). Enjoy~"
Less than a day... I remember when I used to have enough contiguous free time to knock mixes out like that. Now I spend far more time working on the site than making music for it, blah blah blah. But enough about me; while this theme has actually already had it's fair share of love, none of that love was from halc specifically, so I suppose the comment still makes sense. Extensive bitrcushing and crackling, crunchy textures - even relative to other halc mixes - are the dominant motif, so if your diet has been lacking in aliased, low-bit percolations and palpitations, you can avoid sonic scurvy by taking a generous helping. Since most of the standard comments & compliments I make for Andrew's mixes all apply here as well, I guess the most notable element is the enhanced extent of the texture; this mix has more snap, crackle & pop than Rice Krispies (especially that middle one) and beyond being chippy the extra grain & gristle add a distinct atmosphere. It's sort of like "halc PLUS" - the same elements you know and love, with a bit heavier application. Great, enjoyable stuff that betrays the amount of time spent on it with a deep, rewarding electrostatic atmosphere and pleasantly intertwined melodies.
I can't really tell what it is, but in my opinion this mix is missing a little kick to it (emphasis on little, though). I noticed this while listening in my car today. A little bit of a stronger bass might have helped it a little. But really not too much, this mix benefits from being really light.
Just my opinion though, and what do I know, really? :P
Love it though. :)

I really like how it manages to stay pretty laid back with so many gritty synths and glitchy melody lines throughout the whole song. It's an interesting result, for sure.

I am loving this. A LOT!
Once again, your electronic style fails to disappoint.

Yet more closely to an end credits version (always the best)
Plus I love how the song changes 1:12.. humming along ^_^

I don't think I have too much to add here except that it's quaint and relaxing. The chiptunes add a nice atmosphere to the song.

Overall, a pleasant listen, but in the long term it's just not my thing. I get the sense its appeal would decrease rapidly with multiple listens for me.
