Monday Music: Time’s End

Majora’s Mask was another of my favorite N64 games as a kid. People seem to have very mixed opinions on the title, but the overwhelming sense of unease and despair really got to me. The soundtrack was a big part of conveying that mood, from the sorrowful giants’ theme to the way Clocktown’s theme grew more desperate over time.
So I was pretty damn excited when I found out about this remix album, which recreates some of the more iconic music from the game with a more modern and orchestral sound. Terrible Fate is probably my favorite, with its incorporation of the song of healing and that damn mask salesman’s creepy laugh. But I love the whole album, and it’s really brought me back to how it felt to play this game as a kid.
It’s also FREE! Though if you can, this guy definitely deserves support.
It’s just the first of a planned series, and I can’t friggin’ wait for the next installment. Maybe it’ll come sooner if he gets enough funding? But regardless, Time’s End is a great product by itself.
