Before I go into my rant, let me summarize by saying I just checked out the Ys Chronicles soundtrack on a recommendation and I believe it is absolutely one of the "must-hear" Ys CDs. Get it now get it now get it now. [QUOTE] I feel the Ys Chronicles soundtrack is rather weak overall, particularly considering it's done by the same team as Ys 7. [/QUOTE] How is it weak!? And what do you mean "considering it's done by the same team as Ys 7"? The Ys 7 soundtrack is the weak one, (excluding the blatantly awesome opening and boss themes, as you mentioned). We're talking about the same soundtrack here, right? The new PSP one? Although many of the songs on the Chronicles soundtrack have had better mixes [i]somewhere[/i], I don't believe the songs have ever sounded so good [b]together[/b]. To me, Chronicles replaces the PC Engine version as the definitive Ys I&II soundtrack in the same way that Oath does for Ys III. It was so much fun to hear a hard rock "First steps toward War", the bass and haunting violin on "Dreaming" was really unique, "Holders of Power" flat out rocks like crazy (if only those were real drums!) and I was so thrilled to get a good mix of the final battle theme (finally). On the Ys II end, I love the super high speed "To Make the End of Battle" and the violin (on the extended version) added a nice touch (especially in tandem with the guitar afterward). I can't even pick a favorite among the rest of the tracks..."Ruins of Moondoria" has such a powerful sound and I love the flavor the acoustic guitar adds on "Tender People", "Palace of Salmon" (!!!). I wish they would have incorporated that sound into some of the more hard-rocking songs, but it's hard to nit-pick on such an excellent soundtrack. I really can't see any complaint with this CD other than "it rocks too hard". Really! What does Ys I and II better than this!?
