Yeah, I don't ever expect Ryo quality stuff, since like you said he's out. Wish there was a way to bring him back in! I mean, there are regular artists that would love to do soundtracks for games, but it's like he wanted the exact opposite, or so I heard. Does he have any semi accessible albums?
Yeah, the music sounds pretty close to Ys Eternal music in terms of sound quality.
Though Yonemitsu is my favorite arranger of all time, even if there is no way in hell they'll ever be able to get him to arrange Ys music again, you'd think they'd at least be able to find someone else that can at least come close to his level of skill (or have nice equipment like he had/has).
But I guess it's like Deuce has said before. The old chip sound is what the Japanese are nostalgic of, so that's the kind of sound they are going to have for their remakes (though I'm sure the poduction costs are coming into play too - MUCH cheaper to do it this way than to hire someone like Yonemitsu).
