I didn't realize how underwhelmed I am by Valley of Quicksand. I'm used to listening to the Perfect version of it which is way more upbeat. One of the few cases where the Perfect version is definitely better.
You're the crazy ones! DoY has a few very good tracks to be sure, but so does Ys V (Field of Gale for example). And other games like Felghana and Ys I & II Chronicles have a ton of very good tracks, so they completely trounce it.
Speaking of Ys V, I'm really hoping they stay true to the musical style and remake the OST in an Ys Orchestra-style rather than simply JDK-ifying it when they remake the game.
DoY has some AMAZING songs in it. If JDK got their hands on it, I would start leaking fluids from every orifice on my body. Probably won't make any friends by saying this.... but if they got their hands on Ys V's soundtrack, it'd probably be worth listening to. Someone put up a rock version of Fields of Gale on YouTube a while back and it was linked to on ALoY. That's an example of how those songs can be well done.
