Review: Drag-On Dragoon 3 OST

I think this is easily one of the most anticipated soundtracks of 2014 for soundtrack enthusiasts. After MoNACA’s amazing work on the soundtrack to NieR, we have all been looking forward to their return visit to the Drag-On Dragoon universe. The entire team is back for more, including vocalist Emi Evans, so I certainly had high hopes.

Dragon Fantasy Book II Original Soundtrack by Dale North (SMRC-1004)

The first release out from Scarlet Moon Records is Dale North’s Dragon Fantasy Book II Original Soundtrack. This 43-track album marks the triumphant return of the classic JRPG soundtrack that many enthusiasts, myself included, have been yearning for. North, a singer and songwriter first and foremost, draws on this background to craft catchy melodies around every turn.

I had a blast coming up with the track names with Muteki’s Adam Rippon. We hope you enjoy them!

A limited physical edition, available via Bandcamp and Amazon, features 37 tracks and is adorned with artwork from the game. The Bandcamp version includes an immediate download of the full 43-track version.

Also available via iTunesAmazon MP3, and Loudr.

Credits and physical packaging artwork can be found below. Continue reading Dragon Fantasy Book II Original Soundtrack by Dale North (SMRC-1004)

Hit the jump for full impressions. Continue reading Review: Final Fantasy X HD Remaster OST

About The Scarlet Moon Productions Blog

Hello! Welcome to the Scarlet Moon Productions Blog. This space will be dedicated to the three following things:

1) Posts about upcoming releases from Scarlet Moon Records
2) Posts about clients of Scarlet Moon Promotions
3) Posts about game music topics that I’m interested, including reviews, interviews, and news

The fun thing is that I’m not releasing music on the label or promoting clients that I don’t already feel strongly about, so really, everything on this site will fall under number three above.
