Reviews

Nice music, just not breathtaking.

Reader review by Adoru

This soundtrack is a very good one, but if you are looking for Falcom rock or a good introduction to Ys, then this is not the place to come, unfortunately. However, that's not to say it's bad!

The sound programming quality is pretty good for Super Nintendo (maybe not Gun Hazard good, but good). The field songs are my favorites, which include the now famous "Field of Gale" from Ys V Orchestra Version as well as "Wind Knight", "Primal Rave", "Charged Trial", and "Wilderness". All of them are *great* songs. And "Sinister Shadow", the dungeon music, is creepy and fits the game well. "Theme of Adol" is here and it's fun, but my favorite is either "Break into Territory" or "The Secret Experience", which has neat little beeps in the background along with an echoey harp.

The packaging is also neat, but strange. It's not a normal two-disc case, it's thinner and taller. The set comes with a thick booklet with town artwork, doodles, character info, and a comic-like presentation of some of the game.

Now for the bad part. Like I said earlier, this isn't Falcom rock. This set barely even has any drum sets in it at all! The CD has more of a Final Fantasy feel, with trumpets and strings and snare drums. That's not necessarily bad (I like FF), just not the usual Falcom sound. That brings up another point. This is SNES music here, so it sounds nowhere near as good as the Turbo-Grafx 16 CD-based Ys songs. And I was just a little dissapointed with the final boss song... there's just not much there! Finally, the price is *way* too high for the goods.

Still, Music from Ys V is better than some of the stuff out there, is very enjoyable, and heck I'm happy! Overall, it's a good addition to a decent-sized collection, but you might want to try Ys V Image Album instead. It's got nine OSV tracks, three JDK tunes (including "Field of Gale"!), and some weird sing-along thing. Both are good. It's just how much money you want to spend, kids!

More great Ys music from Sound Team JDK.

Reader review by David Kapp

This is a great set of CDs if you enjoy Ys music, and OSVs. This particular Ys game was on the Super Famicom (SNES), so it sounds like a SNES OSV. There is plenty of variety on both CDs, from action music to peaceful music, you're sure to find something you enjoy. One of the few problems I saw was the price: you will probably pay between forty and fifty dollars for this two-disc set. I never played the game, I just love Ys music, so it was worth it for me. I suggest those who haven't heard much Ys music yet to spend their money on Ys Perfect Collection first. A great addition to an existing Ys collection, however.
