Star Dragon's Theme ['95 Mix] 2:43
Yeah that said '95. A somewhat interesting variation on a theme in the game that is acutally not heard very much, but is closely related to Lucia's theme. It has lots of fairly loud percussion.
Ghaleon's Theme 3:40
Rather than keeping the much more menacing theme that represented the villain of the original Lunar, Iwadare writes an entirely new and much more majestic theme for the sorcerer. This contains even more piles of pounding percussion than the previous track, and this is one of my favorite on the disc.
This actually a new arrangement of one of the town themes from the original Lunar. It's a very light-hearted and upbeat tune.
Field of Tomorrow 2:39
The overworld theme for Lunar: EB, the melody is very dissapointing considering the corresponding piece from the prequel had an uncanny ability to get stuck in your head for days. This track as a whole really isn't dissapointing though, because it is arranged quite well.
Crowded Street Corner 3:06
A light pop version of Lucia's theme, as I've already said, if there was one theme that you'll be humming after the soundtrack has finished playing, it would have to be this one.
Gypsy Heart [Jean's Theme] 4:24
Iwadare tries inserting some ethnic flavor into the mix. To be honest I really can't say if he has succeeded or failed. Though not entirely unpleasant to listen to, this track unfortunately gets lost in the middle of the whole thing, unlike other character themes from the game. I would have thought that all of the main characters would have gotten more consideration.
Brave Warriors 3:48
The regular battle theme for the game tries admirably to stay afloat, but is unfortunately bogged down by a completely lifeless melody and is almost indistinguishable from the corresponding track from the original Lunar. People who haven't played both games might have trouble telling the difference between the two.
Holding On [Lemina's Theme] 2:46
As silly as the music in this track sounds, it fits quite well with Lemina's quirky personality. In the end though, it suffers the same fate as Jean's theme.
White Mask Funk [Mystere's Theme] 2:18
Mystere is one of the more humorous characters of the game, and it's a pity that you don't get to see more of him than you do. This track will leave you with pleasant memories though. It is funky upbeat tune with lots of emphasis on bass guitar.
Wine, Women, and Song [Ronfar's Theme] 2:37
To be perfectly honest, this song and the game itself try to put the character Ronfar on the wrong pedastle. While trying to make a rather two-dimensional character like Kyle from the first game, and, because of trying to portray Ronfar in this light, it almost makes it seem as if they inadvertantly made the character much more complex than they were intending. Needless to say, this song doesn't quite work for me. It just doesn't fit the character.
Eternal Blue [Instrumental] 2:32
As the title makes plainly clear, this is the main theme of the game. This removes a lot of the pop influence heard in the score thus far and makes a decent (synth) orchestral piece. The melody is still dissapointing though.
A lovely piano-driven version of Lucia's theme. Definitely one of the best tracks on the disc.
Justice [Leo's Theme] 1:35
A very pompous orchestral piece with a large brassy flair, unfortunately it may just be a little bit to pompous for the character. It's doesn't reflect how humble Leo truly is.
Boss Battle 1:50
This is easily my favorite track on the disc. A large, booming orchestral action piece with an addictive melody. I just wish that it couldv'e been longer. At 1:50, you just expect to hear more.
Hiro's Fight 1:29
There's really not much to this piece, it's just a battle theme similar to the previous track, only much less memorable.
Eternal Blue [Rhondo-Light and Shadows] 5:02
A nice song version of the main theme damaged by the not-so-subtle voice of Jenny Stigle. Sorry to Stigle fans (if there are any), but her harsh vocals really don't add anything special to the song. The pitiful English lyrics don't help either.
Golden Voice 2:49
A somber arrangement of one of the intensely moving main themes from the original Lunar. This could be considered an easter egg for fans of the first game.
Lucia Vs. Zophar 2:23
Another big battle theme. Similar but not as memorable as those that have preceeded it.
Growing Fear 3:25
This is a rather typical dungeon theme for Mr. Iwadare. It's really not as menacing as it could be but it gets the job done. Personally I think this is the one area in which he could use the most work, though his efforts are commendable.
Heart-Shaped Tears 2:52
The first minute-and-a-half is made of piano variations on the main theme, after that some strings are added but goes back to piano and dies rather suddenly.
Zophar's Arrival 2:23
This begins oppresively and gets more intense as it rolls along, with some impressive ostinatos and some annoying dissonant chords that blurt out.
Somber Memories 4:01
While this tries desperately to convey emotional power, it unfortunately bogs down to become slow and boring, with not much interesting going on. It ends with a nice piano solo though.
Dragonship Destiny 2:39
This is one of the less interesting tracks on the disc. It's really just a "transportation" track, just non-cinematic music that plays as your party travels on the Destiny in the game.
Lucia's Theme 5:59
An incredibly well-arranged song version of Lucia's theme. Unfortunately it suffers the same fate as track 16. Stigle strikes again.
