  1. Incase you need some background and missed the first page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Joseph I salute you, good sir. Godspeed.
  2. Wow, this is the second rather old (02) mix that my playlist has shuffled to.. and I am blown away. It doesn't make me feel sad, except that it reminds me of when I was little, and I'd play the piano at my grandmother's before she died.
  3. I completely agree. When I heard this, I thought it was one of the newer OCRs I hadn't quite gotten around to adding to my playlist until now. Then I saw it was from 02. After listening to many orchestral versions of Metroid themes, the instruments sound a tad fake, but it isn't a huge distraction. Overall very good.
  4. I personally like the reverb. It's only slightly too heavy. One of my favorite things to do is to re-listen to tracks I've already heard after turning my Audigy's reverb on, but I can't really do that with this one. However when my playlist randomly shuffled to this I was pleasantly surprised. One of my favorite melodies from Ultima that I haven't heard in over 10 years. I guess they re-used it in Ultima Online.
  5. I can imagine this song be played alongside a silent film on an old projector. The villian ties Marle to the railroad tracks while twirling his incredibly long mustache. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ COUNT: (Nefarious laughter) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ MARLE: Help me, Crono!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  6. This song grabs you by the genitals and slams you onto the concrete. It could have used a little more variety even for a short piece but I still like it and had the nerve to bump it loudly in my car.
  7. Ah could be, I don't have the CD handy, but the haunting melody of 'Inner Space' really sticks out in my mind over Beach of the Void. It's just somber and spooky, and further is by your side while you're playing the game rather than when you're watching the endless cut scenes. I guess this is as good a place to ask as any: When in the HECK are they releasing the Xenosaga Episode II OST? I can't find it anywhere. edit: As far as the mix goes, I think I liked the original themes better. They're spooky and slow and better that way. This feels a bit over the top throughout, though it seems skillfully assembled.
  8. The original theme is "Inner Space" - the music played while you are aboard Proto Merkabah working your way towards Albedo.
