Sunday Night Soundtracks
01.22.06 - 9:59 PM
It's another of our weekly soundtracks updates! Yes, I know we put up a review two days ago, but that was a special update. This is the scheduled weekly update. Overachievers get the best things in life (like heart attacks before you're 30), so leave me alone.
Reader-reviewer Alexander P. writes all the way from Germany to bring you his thoughts on the recently-published soundtrack for Castlevania: Lament of Innocence. Oddly enough, Konami published the soundtrack simply as the Castlevania OST...umm...aren't there like 20 games in that series now? Well, regardless, this album features some fine work from Michiru Yamane, so don't miss out.
Feeding my obsession towards all things Gust-related, I wrote up a review for the month-old soundtrack for Ar Tonelico: The Girl Who Sings at the End of the World (that's our translation of the lengthy Japanese subtitle). If you liked our many Atelier reviews, you're going to just adore this sucker. And yes, US game publishers, I do expect you to give this game to me somehow in the next 365 days. Yes, I know it's not even out in Japan yet. No, I don't care. Get to work.
Finally, we wrap up with soundtracks from some old obscure PS1 titles: Konami's Azure Dreams and KOEI's Saiyuuki. We all missed them eight years ago, but now's our chance to relive the magic...or the boredom. Read the reviews to see what I thought.
Now, to finish in the same way Joaquin Phoenix did in The Village: "The End."
