Eve's Sorrow

This song is a cover of the main theme that plays throughout the game Parasite Eve for PSX. I didn't do anything unique to this track as I wanted to keep the simple feeling of the original. I also wanted to bring back some memories to those who played the game many years ago.

It might be a while until my next upload so I hope you enjoy.

When I first found this I felt I couldn't feel the sadness involved, so I searched Parasite Eve, and listening to it again is a little bittersweet after reading about everything both Aya and Eve went through.

(On a side note, the 3rd Birthday's plot was confusing, even in a simplified form, but understandable enough to feel pity for Eve)

"Happy birthday, it's your fourth."

When I first heard this, I think I was sad. Depressed, perhaps. I feel this bottomless emptiness. Will anyone ever understand this emptiness? So vast and cold...spread out, and it...the echo... it just keeps reminding me.

It's a nice song.

Have not heard of the original... so this is a new song to me.

And I guess I am one of the six people in the entire world who doesn't think that the music in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 is beyond awesome. So I muted the game and played this song in the background instead. Cut scenes, town exploring, battle, everything. I felt it added a nice sentimental undertone to the game and made it that much more memorable, for me.

Some 25 hours later, I've beat the game, and I still haven't gotten sick of this. But now it feels a little empty to listen to this while not having a game to pair it with. Aw well.

Anyway, sorry about the rant. Again, this is a great. I felt that the 2nd piano coming in at ~0:37 was a little too overpowering. It became less of an issue after more instruments come in at 1:06, but I still felt that I little bit further into the track. But again, I just listened to it for 25 hours, so I must have gotten used to it.

Keep up the good work!
