you are one-man swedish wrecking crew. i think i'm running out of ways to say how strong of a writer/arranger you are in this idiom. i'm frightened at the prospect of how good you'll be by the time you're my age, if you keep working this hard.

Damn dude, you my sexy Swedish hero. this is an incredibly enjoyable track with some pretty awesome sounds that mesh really well together. I really like that ending effect of the song kind of slowing to a stop. Just all-around a dern sexy song and really well-produced.

personally im not very fond of the Breath of Fire series, which would make me biased on this remix if i was biased .. but im not!

this is awesome! AnSO, you've really impressed us all with your activity. my first submission was submitted when you had your first post, since then you've just been spitting out new material, all topnotch

good work and keep it up

This song blows!...just kidding. :) My only real beef is the ending.

Besides that this has so much to offer. My biggest kudos goes to you on the arrangement. The way the melody evolves and is reintroduced several times is awesome. Not an easy thing to keep a melody continually moving forward. The tripped out bassline was an excellent compliment to the dulcimer and synth lead. Good stuff homes!

You know I loved this when you were working on it, and I still think it's great. The textures are great, and some of the syncopated ideas are perfect.

The builds throughout are incredibly exciting, and the solo when it finally peaks is excellent. The perfect combination of melody and flash. This type of solo is my favorite kind, and you pulled it off beautifully. :-)

The synths all switch out as needed, so the sounds are always staying interesting, but still there is enough crossover that they feel cohesive.

My one complaint is that the track ends before it completely fades. For as much attention you put into the rest of the mix, you really should have added a few seconds at the end. :P

Regardless, a fantastic mix, and probably my favorite of yours that you've done thus far.

PS. Thank you for not using that sound file at the end. :-)

This soundtrack needs more love. It's one of the greatest game soundtracks because of how well the themes fit with the game's atmosphere. (I really recommend the game to those who liked Secret of Evermore and other games with naturally-fitting audio and video.)

I'm quite fond of the other themes from this game, so I only don't really enjoy this because I like the game's other source tunes way more. Plus the genre is a little weird, though I do like the dulcimer beginning stuff. The opening synth stuff is very Reason-ish, which I'm not sure I can sit back and enjoy fully. The first time the melody comes in, it's quite good because of the nuances behind it. Overall I think the mix is too synthy for me. Maybe I need to listen on awesome speakers; but this would only enhance what I think would be better with more variety in instrumentation.

From the first notes of this, I thought this was a Mazedude track. That was blasted away once those intricate synth solos started.

By this stage, (5th mix?) AnSo was pretty much cemented as a remix prodigy. This is actually one of my favourites of his, because it brings in a lot of signature elements that I love from other mixes and blends it with a killer uncovered melody from an under-represented game.

The wild, erratic synth explosions are well worth the download, but it is the expected AnSo polish should be reason enough not to delete after you are done.

A mix worthy of many dozens of future listens.

It's just crazy how varied this track is. The soundscape is so in your face. At any given moment it could be slow, downplayed, and mellow and the next it might be highly energetic and fast paced with an airy flute like solo.

The fact that any given section of this song feels very distinct yet the whole song feels so cohesive and just right is amazing. :shock:

This comes so highly recommended.
