Video Game Music of the Week - 306
Lunar: Eternal Blue (Sega CD)
Main Theme, Thoughts Of Sorrow, The Final Match Approaches, Field Towards Tomorrow, The Last Battle
Lunar: Eternal Blue is the sequel to the original Lunar title, Lunar: The Silver Star. The game is set 1000 years after the original and was composed by Noriyuki Iwadare, who also composed the score to the original Lunar title.
As the name suggests, this is the games Main Theme. It sets up, musically, the expectation of adventure.
Thoughts Of Sorrow
This is one of the games slow and emotionally provoking themes.
The Final Match Approaches
This theme sets a certain level of tension that acts as a precursor to the eventual end of the story.
Field Towards Tomorrow
This is a background theme of sorts that has an almost calming feel, while sustaining the general idea of travelling onward to a goal.
The Last Battle
This track is an epic theme that delivers a vast musical journey in line with the on-screen action. It begins in quite a slow and reserved fashion, before diving into a sprawling, remarkable piece of music.
