OCR00498 - Lunar: The Silver Star "Blue Lament"

Lunar: The Silver Star 'Blue Lament'

A wonderful foot tapping beat with an excellently played piano and sax here by djpretzel. This guy just never stops pumping out these incredible tunes. Excellent djpretzel, there is no need to tell you to keep up the great work any more, because I’m positive that you will.

DJ Pretzel establishes himself as one of the site's finest with this tunage. He works at the niggling details and makes a piece that's truly evocative of emotion, namely melancholy. The sax and piano polish off the solid drumwork. Wow.

With such sounds, i think i could survive off DJP's stuff, this is probably one of the best jazzy-ish mixes on the entire site, it has contradictory feeligns to it, but that just goes to show how great DJP is at putting things toghether. An amazing mix with everything you may want out of it .. slow .. soft, beautifull

keep up the throughly amazing work.

Great game, great music, great remix, any questions? By far my favorite of djp's remixes. Great sound quality makes you feel like you're sitting in a little coffee shop, sipping a mocha, and bobbing your head to the jazzy rhythms djp throws at you. Highly recommended.

I dunno why but whenever I listen to this song, I have this compulsion to read, therefore allowing me to listen to this great song for a very long time. I find this song soothing, mind calming, and otherwise relaxing. A must for anyone who likes a slow, jazzy song.

Another one of your 'exception' pieces. It's got a flavour that I think stands a bit above the rest of your mixes. I keep coming back to it, it's really enjoyable. I don't know how you could've been so dismissive towards it; you must've been in a rotten mood that day. *Goes and reads FAQ to try and offer some kind of abstract comfort and support*

I'm impressed DJP made this so long ago, and yet it still stands the test of time. Being very familiar with the source material - DJP capitalizes on the source material extremely well and expands on it with a great new take. Love the instrumental choices here too and the intimate mixing decisions taken. Not only one of my favorites by the pretz, but definitely one of the best on this site. Impressive and beautiful work.

A very nice piece by DJP, one of the most consistent Remixers on this site (and the owner, of course). Unfortunately, I never played Lunar myself, so I can't connect to the song beyond its obvious goodness.

The synth quality is not as high as it is in some of the others mixes, but the composition is excellent. And, that said, the synthing really doesn't bother me at all. But it would be cool to hear a live version, wouldn't it? It gets a 4/5 for superior craftsmanship.

If you ever liked chlling music, I recomend this. Why? Simple. Nice beat, smooth, easy piano, good base sounds and of course, nice jazz to it. I just had to post because this music is just too good. +A

Really interesting rearrangement of the sad piano theme here... Sounds like a completely different (and of course really good) song, almost. The original song's really simple, so there's a lot that can be done with it.

Some of the things I liked in particular were the piano part that comes in at 1:29 (in the background), the sax coming in at 1:43, and the piano coming in around 2:49 near the end. KF

Distinctly blue; this is aptly titled. Even better that it fits the game name as well.

I love the noodling with the clav and rhodes, and the atmosphere set with the piano and string bed. This really does have a different feel than the usual funky DJP fare, and it feels a lot more personal.

My plan was to review a group of tracks this morning, but this one really caught me, and i've been just grooving with it for a few hours. I think it's the combination of the instrumentation, the slightly-behind-the-beat playing, and the sparse comping that speaks to me.

Beautiful music.

This song brings back memories - its been a while since I've last heard it. It's a nice song for the most part, although I wish the volume was brought more forward overall, and the drum scaled back relative to the rest of the song. The samples for the most part are still passable I feel.

Nice blue tune here. It opens up nicely, setting the mood right off the bat. 0:40 cool melodic comping here. I love it when the rhodes sneak in. Nice improv in the piano around 1:20. The sax adds a more human element to the melancholy. Dig the cool-down at 2:47. 3:05 rhodes ftw.
