View Full Version : SCDC-00358~9: F-ZERO GX/AX Original Soundtracks

Aug 8, 2009, 07:32 AM
I submitted a new tracklist correcting some problems. Seems the older one was messed up when parsing the test, as track 40 wasn't correct and it was missing one last track.

Oopsies... If it serves as an excuse that was carried on from copying the previous tracklist :p. But yeah, sorry for letting that slip by.

These 2CDs are very frustrating to me. I would have preferred a 1 disc album of just the racing tracks, game over, and credit music ala F-Zero X soundtrack. Now I have to actively skip tracks.

Also, for the people who liked the sinister sounding racing tracks (or the final lap intensified tracks), check out Ghreg on Earth (http://www.discogs.com/Ghreg-On-Earth-Sigilweaver/release/559695).

The guitar performance on the Big Blue arrangement track is not credited though is most likely Katsumi Yoshihara. He usually collaborates with the SuperSweep crew, especially Shinji Hosoe and Ayako Saso.

It's Chiaki, vocalist from Dakota Star (http://www.dakotastar.net/en/profile/). I've created a profile (http://vgmdb.net/artist/10802) for her.

Alan,as a writer,Chiaki,solo name "ch"...

To be honest, I'm not excited about this one.
The character song of Captain Falcon has bad lyrics.
They could've done so much more with that.
Douglas J. Falcon is not a hero, he's a bounty hunter.
Surely, he probably catches a lot of criminals, but that's because he's good at wat he's doing.
So good, the authorities hire him to do the job.
The remix of Big Blue is somewhat ok.
I only have this ost because I try to collect everthing of F-ZERO.
I think they should've never worked with SEGA on this one.

Anyway, not many people will agree with me :P

i thought the circuit music was mostly formulaic and bland. well produced for sure, and i can't really fault it objectively, but just isn't my thing... techno, shrug. it does the job. i found the character themes more inventive and also they had more variety. some of them are hilarious, some are cheesy, not all of them are good but some are awesome. and it's funny because those songs were sort of superfluous, when you think about it... like they were written just for the sake of it, just because there was the means to do it, with minimal real purpose :)

i like both the classic/'secret' arrangements of big blue and mute city more than the default ones in the game, and of course love saso's arrangement as well. my favourite songs though are the ones used on the menus... i just like that fusiony sound i guess ;3 Step 70's <3

i think overall SEGA did a good job, they made one of the most playable and best looking gamecube games. i do agree about the music though, i'd take classic F-Zero music any day. i would love to see a new Nintendo EAD developed F-Zero with someone good doing the music...

If I were forced to choose only one, I'd also take the original F-Zero over this, but I think Shoji is a super cool dude and I like GX/AX a lot too. Not my favorite thing by him (that would probably be his Super Monkey Ball 1 & 2 work), but I can crank something like Aeropolis any time and groove the hell out.

I wish Ayako Saso would lock herself in a room and just write nothing but fusion for a month. She stole Driving Emotion Type-S, and she rocked the hell out of Big Blue here. The lady has top skills.

Shame about the number of cutscene background themes that weren't featured in the album release, but the character themes are more than worthwhile and, honestly, I think the stage themes are the best they've ever been, with a great amount of variety and able arrangement from Hidenori. Melodies help a lot, but so does clever instrumentation and other musical devices, and I can appreciate his direction for what it is, and not what it isn't.

And the menu themes are glorious.
