The original star VGM composer shows he can still make game music at its very best.
Editor's review by Adam Corn (2020-04-04)
This final release in the DS & 3DS line of Etrian Odyssey titles - Sekaiju no MeiQ Cross in its original Japanese - is my first in the series to listen to. If it's any indication of the other OSTs' quality I very much look forward to hearing the rest. The highlight "Battlefield" and "Tumult" tracks meld crisp, melodic game synth with varying amounts and intensities of rock guitar, and the best of them (namely "Battlefield - Elation" and "Battlefield - Death's Crossroad") have that classic game music quality of masterfully melded, uber-catchy melodies with just the tiniest progressive flair at its very best, along with a just-right synth upgrade for the modern age. Some relaxed, acoustic "Labyrinth" themes and a happy town theme or two round out the soundtrack nicely.
