    OCR02658 - Deus Ex 'Ma Chérie Nicolette'

    The soundtrack to my life.

    OCR03726 - Daytona USA "Plastik Skies"

    My favorite tune from the series...I didn't find this remix as enjoyable (a bit static..and dry)..but it's a creative interpretation of the source for sure, although the original sounds more alive/warmer than this rendition.

    OCR02278 - Metroid 'Suite for Violin and Piano'

    Tingles when it Brinstar'd. Yeah yeah, groovy.

    OCR01684 - Animal Crossing 'Traveling'

    Pretty sappy. Remarkably tolerable - must be all that Stardew. But not much to it, except to be played over the credits of your nicest day of summer memories.

    OCR03710 - Super Paper Mario "Memory: Night"

    Quiet, laid-back. Except for how it began in the first few seconds (slight undertones of surreal, though disturbing is perhaps too strong a descriptor), I liked how it ran its course.

    OCR03704 - Lunar Pool "Looser Tool"

    Thoroughly enjoyable as upbeat Sim'ish-esque BGM to your life.
  7. Tropical house? Interesting. A bit too fast to be just bop-able, but it's isn't quite dance-able either. The theme gets a bit lost for me, so not one of my more favorite tracks from Rozo. Always glad to see Monkey Island get attention tho'

    OCR00089 - Phantasy Star IV "Millennial"

    Yep, space, fuzzy, and funky are all great ways to describe this early, crunchy pretzel-piece.
  9. Gotta give this another listen when those daytime summer thunderstorms roll around...a good song, it embodies "wind" to me.
  10. This starts out catchy and energetic, and then pans back a bit and remains comfortably on cruise control. I'd probably let this sit on repeat once or twice before wanting something with a bit more progression and change-up throughout.
  11. To me it's a little too much peppering with those lyrical snippets. More restraint would've produced a better result. I can't recall the exact title but there have been previous Zelda remixes that made good use of Link's "charge-forward" yell in a similar manner.

    OCR01382 - Human Race "Bando alle Seghe"

    This is eminently listen-able. I'm a softie for nostalgia-tinged pieces of-course, but it creates a nice, buzzy "mindspace".

    OCR03655 - Secret of Mana "The Still Night Stirs"

    This is lovely. Tripp seems to be doing a great job of embodying something like a real-life Erana! She's got a really quaint, nostalgic and fun website too. Great piece...it really does make you feel calmer and happier after listening!

    OCR03657 - Secret of Mana "Under Cover of Night"

    This has a Simon Belmont slaying baddies on Halloween feel to it. I like it! Get a bit of that old geckoYamori vibe.
  15. A soft and somewhat bittersweet tune! Ganon should retire and setup a nice Stardew-esque Valley farm for hisself, instead of all this world-conquering brewha. Then he wouldn't need to feel wistful over this!
