LAGOON
(Super NES)

Composer: Hideki Suzuki

Lagoon is a game that seems to catch a lot of flak because of the ridiculously short sword the hero Nasir utilizes for a weapon, causing the combat to be rather awkward. The game's story and setting are all rather generic and it's quite obviously an Ys-wannabe, but if there's one aspect of the game that rises above all others, it's the music. Very few adventure games outside of Ys opt for a guitar rock score, but Lagoon did with great success.

    This is the first of two ending songs, and while I don't like it anywhere near as much as "Moonchild", one thing that's interesting about it is that you can't hear the last few seconds of it in the game itself. It cuts to "Moonchild" before the song is fully-looped once.

    LEGEND OF MANA
    (Sony Playstation)

    Composer: Yoko Shimomura

    I got ahold of this game's soundtrack before I ever played it, and I must say it has quickly become one of my favorites. Yoko Shimomura is an amazing composer. The game got a lot of negative reviews (which I can understand after having finally played it), but I'm a bit perplexed that most negative reviews also claim the soundtrack isn't so hot, when this seems like the very definition of great videogame music. (And I also feel it has a far better soundtrack than Seiken Densetsu 3, which is often touted as having the best music in the series, but I was severely underwhelmed by it.)

    This is one of the strangest-sounding songs I have on this site. It's very gothic and forlorn. It may not be for everyone and I think it works better with the surrounding imagery in this section of the game, (which is a medieval-style castle-like town where it's always night drawn in an unsettling warped "Disney" style.) I really like the deep use of cello here.

    THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: OCARINA OF TIME
    (Nintendo 64)

    Composer: Koji Kondo

    Some will claim this to be the "greatest game soundtrack ever", and others hated it because the only hint of the original Zelda theme was in parts of the new overworld song. I neither think it's the greatest soundtrack, but nor do I hate it because Ocarina of Time till contains a number of worthy songs that have quickly become etched in history as some of the best on the N64. Few songs of that era are as iconic as "Gerudo Valley" and the "Song of Storms".

    Okay, I'll be the first to admit that this song isn't much of a song, and I might be lowering my standards by including it here. It's not that it's a bad song, it actually works rather well in the game itself for adding to the atmosphere of the Fire Temple dungeon. But there's one main reason I'm including it: If you did not get the Gold version of the Ocarina of Time cartridge, then this song would be missing the chanting. Nintendo removed it because they thought it sounded too close to a holy Muslim chant. So, for your enjoyment, here is the contraband version of the Fire Temple music, chanting and all.

    A friend of mine (Bomberguy221) once described the Forest Temple as "The Secret Garden meets The Shining". Probably the best and most appropriate description of that dungeon I've yet heard. This stimulating piece perfectly captures the atmosphere of it. Thank goodness the chanting in this one didn't turn out to be too close to a holy Gregorian chant or something like that.

    This one works better in the game than as a stand-alone piece of music, but it's easy to forget it since it's only used for that one battle near the end of the game.

    If you downloaded the Ocarina of Time USF from Zophar's Domain, you may have noticed this song is missing the short intro and begins just past the "clapping" solo. Well, this version that I ripped from the OST includes the intro. This gentle flamenco number is, imo, the best song in the game.

    Many people didn't like this song because it wasn't exactly the same as the main Zelda theme that everyone's come to know and love from the other games in the series, and it's not really my favorite song in the world, either, although that isn't why. (I do like certain parts of it, though.) I'm including it here for this reason: Because of the way it changes as you move around Hyrule Field, this song is in many different pieces on the USF. There is a main song, and then about 20 different little pieces that contain the dynamic parts. This mp3 is of the entire song.

    The only dungeon song that was on the OST I bought. This is kind of an "iffy" choice to put up here because it doesn't have a distinct melody of any kind, and I guarantee many people will listen to it and not think much of it. It's a very atmospheric piece that, for me, works amazingly well, second only to the Forest Temple for music of that kind in this game. It literally makes me feel like I'm surrounded by a cylindrical wall of ambience.

    LEMMINGS & OH NO! MORE LEMMINGS
    (Sony Playstation)

    Composers: Tim Wright, Tony Williams, & Phil Stringer

    These songs are the versions featured in the Playstation port of Lemmings & Oh No! More Lemmings and were ripped directly from the Redbook Audio tracks on the game disk. They appear to have been based directly on the midis from the Win95 version, although the instruments were softened so they don't have that typical midi harshness. This is every stage track in the game, so if you're wondering why any are missing, it's because they were not included in this port.

    LIFE FORCE
    (NES)

    Composer: Miki Higashino

    Life Force has one of the most impressive NES soundtracks around. The songs were duplicated from the arcade versions of Salamander and Life Force, and remain pretty much intact in the transition. When someone asks me what game genre is my favorite when it comes to music, although I'm tempted to respond with "RPGs", shooters would be pretty close to #1, also, and Life Force is a shining example of why.

    THE LION KING

    First of all, let me make it absolutely clear that these songs are ONLY rips from the Super NES videogame. I do not have and will never make available the original versions from the movie. If you want those, buy the soundtrack. Don't request them, please. With that said, it's amazing how well they duplicated some of these songs with the Super NES's sound capabilities, although some attempts were more successful than others.

    This one was a real pain the neck to get and SPCs are not available for this game, so I hope this is appreciated. I've heard that the music is pretty much the only good thing about this game, and I can believe it.

  • Hobbiton Shire - To be honest, I never got much farther than the first town in this game, but this music is pretty good.

  • Title Theme - This is an amazing title song, and yeah, yeah, I know I say it a lot, but it just has to be heard to be believed. I think more effort went into making this a great song than into making a good game here.


    LUFIA & THE FORTRESS OF DOOM
    (Super NES)

    Composer: Yasunori Shiono

  • A Reunion - One of the three ending songs. Can't really say what it's for without revealing a big spoiler.

  • Battle #2 (Boss Theme) - One of my favorite boss themes from any RPG. Yasunori Shiono can hold his own with the best of 'em.

  • Battle #3 (Sinistrals) - Boss music for the fights with the Sinistrals.

  • Field Motif - Another of the three ending songs. This is the really sad one, and it's a remix of the main overworld theme.

  • Journey's End - The last of the three ending songs. This is the happiest one for the credits roll.

  • Last Duel (Fortress of Doom) - The music for the interior of the Fortress of Doom, also sometimes called "Last Battle", but it's not actually used for any battles.

  • Memory of the Last War - Also called "The Battle of the Island in the Void". This is the opening story theme and one of my favorite Lufia songs.

  • The Earth (Overworld) - The main overworld theme.

  • The Sorrow of Parting - The standard "moments of sadness" music. Quite a lovely melody.


       

    LUFIA 2: RISE OF THE SINISTRALS
    (Super NES)

    Composer: Yasunori Shiono

    This game is better known as the one I was way too hard on in my review. Anyway, I do think it has a pretty decent soundtrack, although not the best like some people who argued with me over that review said. Because a lot of this game's music sounds kind of similar I won't be too descriptive except for the songs I like the absolute most.

It's not like the battles had been all that challenging anyway, but now even the puzzles were gone. At least the music kept up the pace in quality.
