You...lost the project files?

Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...
Tragic. Thank goodness the music itself is safe, at least. Thank you for everything you've done. It's soooooooo good...

I'm sorry if I'm being rather blunt but could you tell me if I can use any of these music for use in my video(s) which i may post onto youtube. I just want to be 100% sure before I do anything.

ON another note this is a great soundtrack and I am sure I'm gonna be listening to it while I study and have any other free time. Thank you very much for giving out the downlaod.

Everyday Fantasy keeps poping up on my playlist as I walk through the door to the library at my college. Creeps me out, but also makes my day great!

Oh man...I'm glad I checked for this today. After I finished the game a week and a half ago I just been waiting for an official OST release (I know there was rips and stuff but I' a purist). Thank you so much for this, great work. I hope this won't be the only project I hear from the artists behind this music..very talented.

Huh, I'm easily persuaded into reviews of such games, so when I heard that the music for ks was just average, I thought just that, but huh, It's pretty soothing to listen to at times. Good job on this and thanks for making it available to everyone because I seriously thought that you guys would just vanish on us after the full release of the game, but I know it'll happen sooner then later. I can't help but wonder what the track that plays in between acts is. seems familiar but I can't tell all together lol.

Mao - Rin... ?
Yuumi - Lily
Asuka - Emi
Eriko - Hanako
Mitsuki - Shizune
Best I could come up with strangely enough.

I've noticed just now that Painful History is kind of a Bad Future version of Raindrops and Puddles. It was awesome and amusing to notice this at the same time. Another reason why gotta love Nicol.

EDIT: And Shadow of the Truth sounds like some kind of Parity's dark counterpart. Is that so? Damn, a new world opens right before my ears.
While we are here discussing, Hanako is somewhere hopping from dark to darker tiles. Alone.

While you're on that train of thought, Hokabi is pretty much a "silly mode" version of Stride.

And while not necessarily two different tracks, the differences between the full release and Act 1 versions of Daylight are almost night and day. That slowdown bit in the Act 1 version always gave me the creeps...

Got it, loving it, listening to it.
Seconding that noticed cutoff for the last few notes of 'Jitter' and was wondering whether it was intentional or not - I mean no offence, just curious. Either way...

Thanks very much for this.

Sorry to bore you with my curiosity even further, but i happened to stumble upon a few of the Act 1 beta tracks, e.g. the old version/s of 'Parity' and 'Wiosna' and maybe a few others, and so I ask why they are not included with this release; and if they were intentionally not included, if you have plans to release them separately later on. IMHO, they are nice to listen to and good tracks in their own way,too.

DLing it ryt nao.

thank you 4LS, for everything. from the well-made art, to the amazing writing (OH GOD, THAT AWESOME WRITING. LILLYYYYY!!!), to the most wonderful soundtrack i have heard in a VN.

you guys have utilized the medium of visual novels to its fullest potential, and i think i'm going to have a hard time finding another one that could top this.

it also makes me very inspired by all your efforts to accomplish this great project. so even more thanks for that.

much love! =)

Great soundtrack. It's worth listening to. Anytime I hear one of these I will think of the times when I played this game.

"Cold Iron" always reminds me of how worried i would get when going through Rin's story. But i am glad i stuck to it because it was just so touching and wonderfully beautiful.
Thank you for releasing the OST!

I recently checked the difference between the music in Act 1 V5 and the final release. I knew it was different and that most of the songs were cleaned up, but I hadn't realised how big the difference actually is. So I'd like to give a big thank you to Nicol for revisiting his music redoing pretty much everything with his improved ability! I just miss the old Student Council tune a bit. It makes me curious what it would have sounded like if it was just polished without changing the composition. Anyway, all in all a great soundtrack that creates the mood for the game very well.
