Out of the fan remix albums that I have heard for the Seiken Densetsu series, in this one I can see the most work invested. While a couple of the tracks stay faithful to the original in styling, most go off on completely different tangents, which is exactly what we want to see in a doujin album.

Two particular tracks struck me as most interesting choices. The first is a remix of In Darkness’ Depths from Secret of Mana, which is not a track that I would picture myself attempting any time soon. There’s hardly any material to work on to start with, but they’ve made a whole track out of it and given it new life. The second is Village, which in fact is a techno/trance rendition of the soothing Final Fantasy Adventure track Mission of Mana. This really surprised me.

The album tends more toward the dance/techno/trance style, so if you don’t like that style this may not be your cup of tea. But it is still a must for any fan. Sadly, the label’s website went offline, so you’re only going to find this on eBay or doing a lot of trawling through Japanese sites.
