I'm aware that The Legend of Heroes Ao no Kiseki and Zero no Kiseki were re-released with the Evolution title attached to signify graphic updates and what not but they also released albums too. How are these albums different from the original music releases? Are they more complete as in FULL albums, are they arranged or remixed by the original composers, or something else? Any help would be appreciated because the googles has not been helpful.

P.S. Yes I realize that I could probably just do a comparison via Youtube by listening to tracks from both but I'm at work and I've already used up most of my break looking up something inconsequential but because of my obsessive behavior, I just REALLY want to know.

RPGFan Music Discussion / Final Fantasy X HD Remaster OST
« on: September 01, 2015, 06:31:11 PM »
I was hoping there would be a post on this album already so I would have a place to "rant" but alas I have to create one myself. I was expecting it to be great but they honestly George Lucas'd the whole album, songs that were intentionally sparse have become over-produced, songs that had cool rhythms are buried under new instrumentation and now I have no interest in playing the game even though there's all that new content I missed because it was cut in the US version of the game. I know one of the reviewers for this website gave it a glowing review (one of the main reasons I picked it up) but I am needless to say disappointed. Am I alone on this, am I just feeling the FFX nostalgia or does it sound worse to others?

RPGFan Music Discussion / Just release the real OST already!
« on: August 06, 2015, 08:00:05 PM »
I've been thinking about and listening to some game rips recently and I thought I would pose a question to the boards. What are your most desired official soundtrack releases? I can think of MANY but here are my top 5:

Mother 2
Mother 3
Fate/Extra
Xenosaga II (Shinji Hosoe's contributions)
Terra Battle
NON RPG: Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

RPGFan Music Discussion / When a game ruins good music
« on: June 08, 2015, 06:08:17 PM »
I was thinking about this topic the other day and thought I could generate some good discussion out of it. Have you ever listened to any music from a game and loved it but when you finally played the game it came went back to listen to the music but lost the "spark" that made you love the music in the first place?

My two examples would have to be SaGA Frontier 2 and Shin Megami Tensei IV. SaGA had beautiful graphics and artwork but the battle system and story were just a total drag. Shin Megami Tensei IV was such an awesome game I actual broke down and bought DLC, something I told myself I would never do (even when the Overworld map was a nightmare and not in a good way).

I have some thoughts on why this might have occurred but I'll just leave the topic open for now and comment on my thoughts later.

RPGFan Music Discussion / Best Non-RPG Music of 2015 (so far)
« on: May 05, 2015, 11:36:43 PM »
My pick for Best Non-RPG Music for 2015 would be Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. Improves on so many of the already great things the first soundtrack brought. This could of course change as we still got many months to go. Anyone else have picks?

RPGFan Music Discussion / LISA Soundtrack
« on: April 23, 2015, 05:29:13 PM »
Anyone listened to the LISA OST by Widdly 2 Diddly yet? I started to but I haven't gotten through the whole thing. The game looks like a crazier version of the Earthbound/Mother series and the music is kind of like that too. Here is a link in case anyone is interested http://widdly2diddly.bandcamp.com/releases.

RPGFan Music Discussion / Danganronpa
« on: April 22, 2015, 02:04:42 PM »
I'm a big fan of Danganronpa's music and while listening to the Best Music of 2014 there were a few tracks from Super Danganronpa 2 BUT no one on the site has reviewed this album or the original. I enjoy reading the reviews and would like to get the fine people at RPGFan's take on the albums.
