A Simple Refrain Review Part 3

This section took way to long both due to life events a  a death in the family ect it would have taken longer but I made a promise to my best pal Bob I would get this out the door I am always one to keep promises(even though they may be fulfilled a little late) so because of that here is part 3 there will be a part 4 just because i wanted to post this now that I finally have a moment to do so part 4 will cover the last two tracks

 

Cairo Slow

Branden:

What a funny name for a track, huh? Very unassuming too. This track translates magnificently on piano. It makes you feel at peace with the world. Though very similar, both being piano based, I prefer the version on A Simple Refrain because it seems brighter to my ear and more passionate. It is one of my favorites for easy listening.

 

Daedalus Club

Branden:

This track is the perfect melody to convey mystery, magic, and sadness all in one. By the time you hear this one, you are nearly done your journey. A lot has happened to Sam at this point too, so she’s tired and wants answers. The music has a way of subtly telling us that as well. It’s a track that makes me think about life; it’s dark, haunting, but also somber and sad.

 

Bianca

Branden:

This is a beautiful track. This one stands out to me because I can’t really describe it much other than to say it projects a sense of “great sadness”.

Grace’s Theme

Rudy:

You know the theme, but which scene is it played in? Well, I may have missed it somewhere, but I believe it is only played in the scene where Grace has a temper tantrum with Gerde after she’s busted in her room, and that scene is so short that you don’t get to hear the song in its entirety. That’s a shame, really, because it’s a beautiful song. I particularly like the church organ kicking in, giving the song much more strength before returning to its tranquil mood. I wonder if the song would have fitted well in the church of Altotting.

 

Branden:

At this point, Grace feels love, passion, heartache, and a little embarrassment. As rudy said, it’s a shame we don’t hear more in-game, but in A Simple Refrain we get to hear its full beauty.
