Parasite Eve Original Soundtrack

Parasite Eve: Original Soundtrack summary

Parasite Eve was a game set in New York, so it obviously required a sort of realistic sound to go with it. Shimomura's efforts to meld opera with some sort of electronic-techno sound worked well: the tracks that use this do so to great effect, such as the battles and opera-techno mix tracks. However, the opera solos suffer from rather poor voice sampling that makes them sound more like a rip at Celes' famous concert in Final Fantasy VI than anything to be taken seriously. Still, it seems like the down-to-earth sound suits the title well, with a certain atmosphere of mystique hanging around almost inbetween tracks by Shimomura's use of slow strings and piano. The most important track of this album is the ending theme, Somnia Memorias, which was Shimomura's first vocal song and proved that not all RPG themes have to be Japanese or English to make an impression.
