Protip for rdeath: El Shaddai is the album you want to steal and claim as your own rip.

Heya thanks Msia and the gamemp3s troop. I've been out of the video game loop for years now, but out of the muddled mass of unfamiliarity I sometimes uncover such canorous joys. This El Shaddai looks interesting, I look forward to much happy listening.

Thanks again for the music! I mean it.

It's a shame to see the MoH collection in this torrent, especially after La-La Land so kindly and respectfully requested that it not be pirated (and soooooo many communities were happy to oblige).

Whining entitlement replies start..... NOW

"folders are messed up?"

Should I hold off on downloading this one until later?

Welcome back Msia and thanks.

@JI: You do have a point, and I hope at least a small fraction of people who download this release because of the boxset would order it. I would myself but cash situation is shitty, especially if I have to move in the upcoming months. But where did LLL do that request?

@yoyo: No viruses in here, MSE didn't find anything. So either you're trolling or your Antivir likes to find false positives.

Thanks for the release, it's been a while since we heard off you! Much appreciated :)

Thanks for MOH. It's a limited edition release too, so it's good to have this as a back up in case they are sold out before I can put some money together.

before you guys suggest that we are putting out viruses with our releases, consider the quality of the software that's telling you of the threat. upload it to something like http://www.virustotal.com and then if you still have concerns post here with the actual files please.

When can I expect to pay for the releases of this site? I'd happy to do that if the revenues go to the respectful owners(artists)...

How come people haven't thought of this yet.

Thank you for all your work releasing this and all of your music packs for the past years. This may sound like a dumb question where would I need to go to donate to you guys?

Awesome. I've been wondering, will we be getting Dynasty Warriors 7 anytime soon?

@dane: Rather than paying us, just buy the soundtracks yourself from sites like Play-Asia, CDJapan, Amazon JP, vgmworld, otaku.com, yes-asia.

@Wicked: Nowhere, what I can remember, we don't do donations. And to be honest, rather donating to us, do the stuff I said to dane.

And the whole thing of donating to something like this is even in my books completely wrong, even if I tend to share music nicely.

I'm not very fond of games like Medal of Honor, since I usually play JRPGs and adventure games, but I have to say that the main titles from each of the MoH games are so majestically beautiful that I almost can't believe how good they are! Thanks for bringing such wonderful melodies to my attention :)

Thanks so much. El Shaddai looks interesting. I hope that posting the MoH box here can give some JRPG soundtrack fans a chance to see just how amazing the music is and maybe purchase a box before it sells out.

Well El Shaddai is a huge disappointment. Composers can't just write orchestral music by recording with an orchestra, they need proper orchestrators. Even the tracks with orchestra sound like they were recorded to have an almost synthesized sound to them or given some strange effect in post-production; very few sound natural.

@JI

Did you purchase this box, by the way?

Based on my fair observation, at least 99 percent of people who accuse others of pirating don't purchase soundtracks themselves.

@Oppai

Did you make a point with your post, by the way? Or just an implicit accusation?

Based on my fair observation, at least 99.999% of internet commenters pull statistics out of their asses and are only good for setting up poor strawman arguments.

@JI
Okay, you don't want to answer to my question, right? If you do purchase the MoH box, you can easily post "yes, I did", but instead you selected to insult me.

These facts imply you were just accusing others of pirating stuff you also pirated.

Assuming the virus comments were false, I have downloaded the torrent. No issues with McAfee.

On to the issue of the day: downloading instead of pay. There's no justification for it. Stealing is stealing, and I'm not special.

Having said that, how come websites that sell CDs for anime music and sometimes VGM don't always translate the tracklist? Why do I have to rely on vgmdb or gamemp3s to do it? I'm not paying them for it. What am I paying $40 to CD Japan (plus tax, plus shipping, plus import fees) for if all they send is a tracklist-less CD with 3 good tracks out of 20?

This is not an argument for piracy. I'm just saying that if you want me to feel really guilty, don't have websites that suck in selling the product. I still can't forgive that Detective Conan CD I bought that had 40 tracks... and no good ones. There's $40 bucks I won't see again.

Now for the releases. I immediately start salivating when Falcom rears its beautiful head. Do-don-pachi seems promising too, given the previous releases for shmups. Can't say much about the rest, especially MoH. I've learned not to expect to be impressed by North American game music 90% of the time.

That's all. Thanks for sharing.

@Lawrence_Bastard: You do have a good point about the tracklist issue. And hopefully someday the anime/vgm publisher will see that there's market outside of Japan and start including either translated tracktitles alongside japanese tracklist, or ditch those completely. Would make my day easier, alongside making credits included and in english. :P

Also, what Conan CD did you get and what stuff were you excepting?

Hey Razakin. Pretty late in responding to this. Been busy.

The Conan CD I bought 4 or 5 years ago was the OST for the fifth movie. I had just gotten into the DC series, and I really liked Katsuo Ohno's music for the first few seasons. Unfortunately, I no idea how bad it eventually became for the show and the movies. 600+ episodes. Yeesh.

I was desperate to get SOME of his music. You can't download it anywhere, and I couldn't get some of those recurring themes out of my head. So I decided to buy one of the (only) available CDs online. I figured, even though I never saw the movie, the music had to be pretty good. Wrong. The tracks are too short, none of the themes I liked were on it, and those that were were forgettable.

But let's talk about the "service" offered by CD Japan. Of course the tracklist wasn't translated, and there were 48 songs. I had to go to some random forum to ask for a Romaji translation. Better than track 01, tack 02, etc. Second, I have to mention that there was no option to preview the songs. This seems to be changing. I find that a lot of new anime CDs that come out have preview options for the entire tracklist. Still few translations, but it's a step in the right direction. Third, the site didn't mention the name of the artist. Good thing I already knew it was Ohno, thank you Anime News Network. However, sometimes ANN doesn't list the composer for some series. What do I do then? F**k myself? OK.

So I took a chance, ordered a CD I knew nothing about from a movie I didn't see by a composer who got progressively worse without my knowledge. I guess I was asking to get ripped off, like any fan of anime and VG music when you take previews out of the equation. I've had success with other artists in the past, like Akira Senju and Kenji Kawai. Nevertheless, without sufficient product info (or downloading), it's all a guessing game.

"romaji translation"
i'd be curious to know what "language" is romaji (clearly not english)
ok i'm just making fun of what you said =)

you can maybe request smth at vgmdb (some people ever asked me romanizations or translations, i'm not against doing both -pm Phonograph)

@Lawrence:
Yeah, the whole thing about importing stuff was bit trickier in the days past. But then, I don't except CD Japan to give translated tracklists, artist information would be nice, but I think they put the info they have on their hands without opening the albums or using some googling.

And of course this point is bit moot, but I do remember neowing (cdjapan's japan side) having tons of samples even on those days. But then, getting ripped of by a blind buy is annoying, thankfully it hasn't happened to me yet.
