7/10 this one's not bad, but I liked the original theme associated with Skull Kid more.

Consider me wowed. Certainly not what I expected for what little knowledge I have about this game. It makes use of the GBA sound engine very well. 8.5/10, certified bop!

Here's "Musical: Meloettaaa!!!" from Pokémon Black/White:

10/10 I literally can't dislike music from BW, it's all so good. This is no exception, what a bop. :D (Is this the music that plays for the Meloetta event in Castelia City btw?)

Very much sounds like its era, yet with a bit of a modern touch! Or so it seems, anyway. I almost wouldn’t be surprised if this is the original PS1 version, actually (I didn’t check). In any case, it’s a simple yet pleasurable listen, like many other tracks from the OG Spyro trilogy. 7/10.

Something else from the same era (and console), perhaps?

7/10

it's good, but IDK, the other tracks you've posted from this game sound better.

let's visit a famous example of "how did they get this on that console's soundfont?"


because tim fowlin somehow made this work on a friggin SNES.

8/10 I didn't expect to like it, but I surprisingly did. Definitely best heard on headphones as I really enjoy the "sliding" music of this track. Most certainly more interested in the rest of its soundtrack than the game itself.

10/10 my favorite track from the game by far, specifically cause it fits the early 2000's theme very well. That and I just love angsty songs in general.

6/10 It's.......alright, I guess? I don't know, seems kinda chaotic and all over the place if you ask me. I'm actually not the biggest fan of actual vocals in video game music most of the time anyway, I prefer orchestral/instrumental. (I actually dislike angsty stuff.) Actually, one of the only songs in video games with actual lyrics in it that I like is this one:

(Reviewed above: “River Game” from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)

I’m assuming that this is OG Twilight Princess music here, as opposed to the remake on Wii U. Which I’m assuming because — with the caveat that I’m not familiar with the music of either — it sounds kind of “simple” compared to what I’d expect from the latter, almost as if it were sequenced. This kind of works to the song’s favor, but I also think that song itself being rather “simple” simultaneously kind of works against it, with the repetition kind of grinding away at the enjoyment factor after a while along with the somewhat overly playful and cheerful arrangement. So overall, it’s just OK. 6/10.

That’s not to say that sequenced music is inherently “simple”, though. On the contrary! Because sequenced music — even on consoles older than GameCube — can give us music like this:

(I was thinking of getting this on Switch, but other shmups caught my attention more lol)
6.5/10 it's certainly not a bad track, and it does have a bit of a grand feel to it that's fitting for a return from a mission (going by the title), but it doesn't stand out too much from similar music I've heard in other shmup games.

(Reviewed above: “Ook” from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)

This seems to be one of those songs that’s best appreciated in context. It sounds pleasant enough by itself and it actually has a really nice “clean” yet detailed sound to it that I often associate with sequenced music of this era (assuming that it’s not actually just really high-quality synth instead). That does also mean that it doesn’t sound particularly realistic to my ears, though. A version with that sounds closer to the real thing could be interesting, but for what’s being presented here, I’ll give it a solid 7/10.

I wanted to avoid last-post snydrome for this particular song, but oh well, haha! Have one of the calmer yet still emotional tracks from Berwick Saga below.
