Better than Symphony Ys '95!

Reader review by Kevin Murphy

I ordered this CD on a whim. I do not like synthesizers at all. Most synthesized game music sounds worse than the original OSV in quality. In fact, the only synth music I actually liked was in Symphony Ys '95, and that's because it sounded so real. I really didn't even care for Ys V Orchestra either.

So it was with low hopes that I put the CD in my player and put on track one. It started with a nice "lullabye", and after about a minute and a half, these drums come in and join an orchestra that sounds very realistic!

None of the other tracks let me down either. I fall in love with track 3 every time I hear it. The OSV of this song is really fast and upbeat, and for this arrangement they made it into a very soothing, relaxing piece. You can tap your toe a bit to track 5, but it still is "laid back." Track 6 sounds almost identical to a certain track in Lunar.

If anyone were to complain about this CD, they would more than likely say every track has a certain "sameness" to it. Yes, that is true. But if you like one track then you probably will like the whole CD.

I received this CD a week before I got Legend of Heroes Piano Collection, and I was surprised that I actually liked this one more. I prefer the fake instruments to the real ones! If you liked Symphony Ys '95 at all, you are bound to love this one.
