Lufia II 'Christmas in the Village (Silver Bells)'

You can't get much more Christmasy then this. All through this song I'm just waiting for Anne Murray to start up her vocal cords. I can't say that I'm incredibly enthused about this style of music... but it is Christmas so I'll live. Another excellent piece of work for the Christmas holidays. Great work Dale North.

This song blew me away completely. I'm getting used to Dale's extraordinary talents, so much that he's starting to spoil me (and probably most of us) with how well done his work is. I had this on loop for a long time the past few days, and I have to say it's quite amazing work. Keep it up Dale, keep submitting your excellent work!!

A little bit too Christmasy for my tastes. But if it's you're bag you can't go wrong here. I have to admit it's incredibly well put together. Practically professional quality. Very melodious and soft. I can already feel what it would sound like coming out of cheap speakers in the roof of the mall...

Well, after I discovered the great peice called "Turbid Guidance" I decided to check out the rest of the Lufia mixes available...

My god, you could relax a charging rhino with the sweetness this piece is treating my ears to... (I gues sI didn't notice this mix when it first debuted)

Though I'm not all that satisfied with how the song end, it's still another great Lufia mix! :)

Well, Christmas is coming up again. Figured I might as well review one Christmas-y song.

This... Is beautiful. I absolutely love it. Calm and spirited. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a Christmas song that they could play without ever getting tired of.

A post-Christmas Christmas song review!

I love how these two songs are melded so well together. Dale certainly makes them flow very nicely with smooth transitions, and a nice calm feeling throughout. I play this each year around christmas.

My only gripe is the ending seems a bit ubrupt. Nothing to really take away from the overall feeling though.

Normally I'm not down with mixing existing songs with a game's music, but i'm making an exception here, as there is plenty of Village to go around. I love the subtle percussion in the bells and tambourine, along with the tasteful North kit stylings.

Dale has a very classic style that people associate with Christmas, and though I don't associate it with the holiday as much, and can thankfully avoid the connotations, I can clearly see the connection. I really like his soft rock style, and think it fits both sources very well.

I agree with DA that the ending is too abrupt; I think there is enough material for another minute or two, and would have at least liked a more structured ending, perhaps a ritardando or something, but as is, I still enjoy the song immensely.

Appropriate for the time of year, someone should make a playlist with all winter/xmas-y remixes, and share it.

This is an excellent winter holiday remix with church bells, a hint of xmas carols, end (and/or end credits) music to a winter movie and all that. Perfect for this time of year.

Reminds me a lot of Usa's City in the Clouds album, must be "New Age-ish" sounds. The bittersweet vibe makes it sound a bit like a keyboard demo, but it's definitely a good piece of music. Wish it was a bit longer.
