OCR00928 - Alisia Dragoon "Halls of Abandonment"

Recommended Posts

Little known fact... along with Mega man 'Chillout', this is my fave OC remix ever... i actually really like the percussion as is... a true classic... has a really unique sound... and i've played this song almost every day since the very first time i downloaded it.

This mix is transporting. Not many songs on OCR can be described as such. What it does with the materials it has is quite simply awesome. The instrument quality used isn't the best, but the way they are put together is masterful. I haven't heard anything quite like this, which makes it a memorable piece. Even if you've never heard of the game (I haven't), this one is most definitely worth a listen, and if a "Best of OCR" compilation was ever made, this would deserve a spot for being unique and different, and doing it well.

(Sorry to bring in the concept of rankings- I would disapprove of such a compilation. The fact still remains that this is the best of its kind on OCR)

Could have sworn I commented on this way back in the day, but I guess not. Definitely a great interpretation here of a very boring, plodding original. I loved the sounds and textures here, and this one has always been an old favorite. Wish Andy was still more involved in the community. Don't overlook this one.

Wonderful, wonderful remix. This is one of those remixes I just keep coming back to because I listen to it and I can just let my mind try to recreate the scenario for this music...Halls of Abandonment? A women running through long manor halls that are lit but empty...

At least, thats what comes to my mind. I always like to let my mind wander with these excellent remixes.

Great opening mood on this mix, and though it's more of a rhythm + chord progression track, it has enough layers to keep it pretty interesting. Some of the leads seemed a little piercing, but overall i was cool with this one. :-)

Like WesternZypher, I find this very uplifting. :) Last Unicron has given this track a noble sound like as for travelling near the end of a quest. I think this would fit well in a later stage of a Wizardry game. ^_^ Halls of Wonder, even. :D Wonderful mix! :3

Yes, indeed. I discovered OCRemix thanks to this track, is amazing. Still lives on my mp3 library to date. Volume goes all up when it shows up on shuffle!
