1. 5/10 maybe it's because I haven't played this game in a long time and can't really appreciate it much, but I'm just not too keen on the theme itself. That being said it's certainly not terrible either.
2. 8.5/10 the remix though is definitely my favorite of the two, it has something that makes it stand out to me more (besides it being a rock/metal remix).
8.5/10 certainly a nice theme to hear when gifting/recruiting/doing quests/just wandering the monastery before a certain event happens; also pretty much my new favorite calm/easy going theme in the FE series in general. (this theme is actually what I use when I play FE Heroes while in the castle, arena menu, etc.)
Speaking of which, have the sad theme of the monastery:
8/10 I remember watching my brother play this game before I gave it a shot, the opening theme is one of those game songs that's still amazing imo (also it always gave me Solatorobo vibes, another great game with an amazing opening). I really need to play more from this series though.
It sounds suitably ominous for its title, even if the sound quality — or maybe the arrangement/whatever system it's running on — kind of reduces the overall impact a little bit. Maybe an orchestra would help here? That said, it's certainly not bad in this format, and it did grow on me as it went on. 7/10.
Help yourselves to another Atelier opening:
(The title of the actual song is "Looking Out at the Sea".)
8/10 Very pretty! But it did get weirdly creepy and ominous near the end. Plus, the vocals seemed to get overridden by the instrumentation. Wish this and all the other pre-Iris games came out in the US.
