Yep, the Ys Origin soundtrack definitely rocks. I can't decide if I actually like it better than Ys VI's soundtrack overall, but all I know is Silent Desert (track 15) is definitely one of my favorite Ys tracks of all time. The arranges of the lesser known "unreleased" tracks from the original Ys game was a nice touch too. If we're going to have any remixes at all, I'd much rather have them be the less common ones (which ruled anyway, especially on the Ys Renewal album), as opposed to the usual themes that have already been arranged countless times. I just wish they would have spaced out the dungeon and boss themes a bit better among the 2 discs, as the majority of them appear on disc 1, leaving disc 2 a little high n' dry in comparison.
By the way Gold, man, you should have heard the live version of Genesis Beyond The Beginning at Falcom Live 2007. It was definitely the climax performance of the concert, having just been preceded by To Make The End Of Battle and Valestine Castle Felghana Version. Everyone went nuts. Or at least I did. There was also an excellent vocal performance of Scars Of The Divine Wing, which will likely appear in a future arrange CD. Speaking of which, I've been meaning to write up a review of the concert, but alas, I'm lazy. (Right Carl? ^^ Don't worry, I'll send your stuff)
