Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening: Threshold of a Dream - History

Recommended Posts

So I heard through the grapevine that this is coming out tomorrow...

...how would you know that, and i didn't?

It's an interesting album (at least what I've heard so far) - I won't say too much more before release, as the album will be up for you guys to form your own thoughts around soon enough. Just know that whatever your expectations, this album is probably different from them.

don't taunt them too much :< but, yeah - this is definitely a unique album in terms of style. i talked about it on that interview i linked a page or two ago that i did for RadioFree Gamer.

sounds like a negative review to me :whatevaa:

all im really expecting is an album that is chill and doesn't have your typical ocr album synth rock tracks all over the place. i kind of doubt i can be displeased based upon that. i guess we'll see.

Psych! The album's genre restriction was all a dream.

I knew it was going to happen

I hope this is a good thing. Hehe.

I'm super excited for tomorrow. I woke up today thinking it was the 13th today with my head glued to the monitor waiting for this things release. Ahh sometimes I like to majorly disappoint myself. :/

Nah, it's neutral - I'm liking the album quite a bit, but it's just a warning since the album is much different than I think just about anyone would expect.

Edit:

Ah. I SEE WHAT YOU DID THAR. well, good for you then! thanks for helping pull the album together then!

To be honest, I didn't do any of that. I'm part of site staff as a forum moderator is what I meant :razz: .

it's different from what every other project has been. there's more artsy on it than you'd usually see on a project here, particularly since so many of the projects are groove bias anyways.

just wait your turn, and make your own decisions =)

Oooh, tomorrow cannot get here soon enough! I want to hear this thing so badly! It will be right up there with DKC2: Serious Monkey Business and Bound Together (EarthBound) for my study playlist during finals week!

Because I heard it straight from the lion(tamer)'s mouth while doing a podcast with him today.

He has a bad habit of not telling the important people things until the absolute last possible minute.

Nah, the dream was the album being released on December 6th. Was that posted date a product of someone's rampant enthusiasm or possibly a way to hook us all in before the actual release date? ;-)

Yeah it's probably something else. It's probably just straight up metal. All I know is a lot of the ocr albums have some of the big name tracks done in this one specific style (that involves imo an excessive use of guitar) and it always bothers me.

but i digress (good word)

Pretty sure there's no such possible thing. Those words don't go together.

true! there are a few requirements for OCR projects.

1. a song that involves seventeen guitars, all way too loud, with some bass and drums playing a blastbeat for ten minutes. lots of wheedly solos. if it's a straight midi rip with tons of solos layered on top, even better! no one will know anyways. they're too busy looking for toilet paper for their ears.

2. an "orchestral" track done by nutritious or equivalent that is excellent but gets passed over by 7/10ths of the people who listen to these projects because classical music iz dumb.

3. one song involving vocals taken from a sample pack, for better or for worse, that have nothing to do with anything. Sexy Boy or that song from FF4 are good examples. it has to be a girl, though. guys don't sing musics.

4. a trance/house/loud electronic track on a theme that is, in game, a retrospective and quiet song. this is particularly effective if there's so much side-chaining you can watch your woofer wheezing like it's an emphysema patient, throbbing in and out around once or twice a second. don't forget a lead that's so excruciatingly loud on the high end that it's bound to prevent you from turning it up in your car. at all.

5. a chiptune track. this can be the original chiptune from the game - no one will notice, since chiptunes are so retro. i love to listen to them when i'm drinking my starbucks and wearing american apparel in my ikea-lined house. don't forget the neckerchief.

we have one song on this project that combines all five of these tracks.
