Re: Xenogears Orchestra Arranged Version

ya, CD Japan never mentioned anything about a first print...   I don't think one was ever mentioned or announced..

When I stop before the last three tracks, it's an enjoyable album. It's just a shame because it could have been a lot more.

Bern, if you think this sounds like a Doujin you are Waaaayyy out there in left field. (in which case we shouldn't be able to hear you from that distance).

My only point is, it just sounds kind of weak, I don't think the recording quality was quite there.

Re: Xenogears Orchestra Arranged Version

I don't know. The iTunes version sounds pretty great...

Re: Xenogears Orchestra Arranged Version

Talking about the Xenogears original soundtrack...

About the chants in Xenogears, does anyone know what the chants were on specific pieces?

I can imagine that the chants on "City of Burning Sands" (D1, T11) and "Aveh ~ Ancient Dance" (D1, T17) were Arabic - guessing by their desert context -

and that the chorus in "Wounded, Advancing into the Light" (D1, T22) is supposed to be Catholic-styled,

but how's about the chants in

"Awakening" (D2, T16)
"One Who Bares Fangs at God" (D2, T17)
"Alpha and Omega" (D2, T18)

are those Arabic, Celtic, or another ethnicity?

*Sigh* if this were a doujin, it would sound like THIS instead...

They're called as Bulgarian voice.

Re: Xenogears Orchestra Arranged Version

If that's the case, it takes no longer to see a regular version, because this album is out of stock in many shops. I guess it's a matter of different packaging though.

Re: Xenogears Orchestra Arranged Version

I think the only difference is the black outer case.

Re: Xenogears Orchestra Arranged Version

I was wondering, which version did OSV feature in their unpacking video then? The regular or this mysterious limited one?

Looks like the limited one is what they opened.  The black sleeve is what makes it the limited version.  A friend DID manage to pick up a copy for me and says that it does indicate a first print on the obi.

Re: Xenogears Orchestra Arranged Version

Ah yes, it is just a slipcover on a great book style type packaging.

Review posted.
I liked it.  Could have been more but if you'd like a pretty orchestral album this fits the bill.  Never became a huge fan of the OST but Creid was decent enough and I expect this one to stick even better.
