OCR01318 - Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening "Symphonic Ballade"

Recommended Posts

I've had the WIP version for a long time now, and have downloaded this version, the complete version, in hope of it being as good as the WIP one. This one has surpassed it in so many levels. Although the tune is close to the one I heard before, there are little things added that keeps it feeling "magical". The Ballad of the Wind Fish is my second favorite Zelda song (Tal Tal Heights is the first), and "Symphonic Ballad" does it justice. Beautiful work, 8/10.

This was kind of BLAH...

Not to mention the sudden and only variation in the melody really annoyed the fuck out of me.

If you're going to variate, variate. But please don't fuck up the original melody just cuz you thought "it'd be cute..." Like, it was annoying to hear the melody like it does in the game and then "fwoop!" It's different in this ONE place, the rest is verbatim.

Over all a real boring arrangement.

I was going to say something, but I don't really remember now. You're right. It's pretty boring.

personally, it was very good and calming overall. i just cannot resist the ballad of the windfish when i get the chance to hear it

how you remixed it was very creative. the windfish theme sounded like how any fan of the song would want to hear it.

the only fault is that, well, it just didn't excalty sound...together. i dont know how i can give you advice to move things around just a little bit, but its possible that you could tweak it and add/subtract to the piece so that it wouldn't just sound like the everyday remix.

it's well done, but i know it has the potential to improve

Hahaha! Thank God we banned this douche. :lol:

Excellent, relaxing piece. The main woodwind lacks realism, but the rest of the this was put together nicely.

Pretty sweet that we followed up CV2 "Cursed Bloodline" with this. It's a fun contrast. Because, you know, "we're biased against all genres", and all that.

wow, epic collab here, very emotive work, and the delicate backing track is a perfect fit with Karl's piano skills. I agree with Larry that the woodwind lead is a little too computerized, but overall, this mix gets top marks for setting a mood and drawing the listener in. A really nice new age sound that is both relaxing and inspiring.
