Listing to the new rendition is clear how a lot of songs really were made to be played by an orchestra. The Opening for LBA and The Quest are so good

Emerald Moon has been made extra spacey with an added synth.

No problem here

I sincerely enjoyed it. Feels more like a movie soundtrack to me. Some of the themes are very cool like "the empire", "in the temple", "funky town" 'hamalayi', 'opening for lba', 'the quest' 'music box LBA' and others. Well done Phillipe Vachey

Try another browser. For some reason I couldn't download it with Firefox, had to use Chrome.

Hi Homeless, long time no see

Thanks for the advice, earlier in the day i've tried to change my browser and nothing come out.
The issue have been solved some hours ago, thanks to the Wayo Records customer service. It was my local network who didn't like their host services for some reason ahah

But hey, now i can listen peacefully the album and enjoy it just like rob_c do

Also, i see in this post that some people already had the Sendell medaillon ... it was earlier for a specific pledge or for everyone ? If it's the second case, i don't know why i didn't receive mine ahah

Greetings !

I was surprised today we got the digital version really cool present before christmas!
Grabbed myself a good whiskey and a fine chair for listening.

Really like the effort they put in the symphonic suite with the different instruments.
Gives a nice new ambience and feeling this music already has.

Song for Gabriel was perfect so i dig they didn't do a remake.
The bonus tracks they did on the piano where also nice.

The only complain i have is cd 2 number 10 Metamorphosis of the hamilayi there is a lot of background noise (hitting the padel of the piano on the floor?)

Overall its a great project i really like the end result, what do you guys think?

I don't like the new In The Temple. The new Desert is also a bit too crowed with instruments. FT LAps could have received some more focus on the guitar, the lower tones are way too loud.
Village (Piano Version) is quite nice though.

Important note though, I've only listened to the number like 2 or 4 times so far. Compared to the ... well, probably hundreds of hours for the originals.

But I'm really happy with the Opening for LBA, The Quest, Purple, Th Empire, and Emerald Moon.

Unfortunately they did not include the original version of purple. I also would have liked a new version of the LBA 2 installation music

I challenge somebody to work out how to embed the new renditions over the music in the original games so we can play them with the new sound

I just spent the last couple of hours listening to the symphonic suite. I'm really pleased with the result, even if it still won't be this time I'll hear Honey Bee and The Rebels being played by a real orchestra.

The highlights for me are Opening for LBA, The Empire, Purple, Hamalaya and The Quest.
I really like the refreshing new life of The Empire, by adding what Philippe described in the booklet as a "pattern in Celtic colours" -- entirely appropriate in my opinion, this musical tartan is a whole new song on top of a LBA classic.
And something needs to be said about Opening for LBA. I listened to this track and what I found was the exact grandiose result I was expecting to see emerge from when I imagined LBA's soundtrack being played by a real orchestra. I listened to this track and had to go back and listen to it again. Phenomenal work. I can't help but imagine how hard it must have been to get the whole orchestra with all its distinctive parts move together in sync as one. A challenge taken on perfectly again in tracks like Hamalaya and The Quest.

I don't know about you guys but for me the wait was worth it

True that! Really nice gesture from them.
Also, the brochure content is good.

The omissions of Zeelich, Honey Bee, a fully fledged and full power LBA Theme that went wild beyond our dreams and The Rebels in favour of other tracks is a bit strange indeed... The Rebels in particular is one that absolutely fits the whole orchestra thing. Also strange, is the choice to add so many synths in lead parts, instead of letting it be entirely live and played by the orchestra, or at least keep synths on the background for subtle effects only.

Yes, I think the piano performances really added to it. They capture the true spirit and emotions of the originals for most of the time, with interesting variations. It is satisfyingly raw, and carries the same vein of emotion of the original tracks. Shame it seems the piano sound sounds like it was mic'd from far or mixed with too much ambience, I dunno, can't tell. Nevertheless the performance is wild! The piano is on fire!

Yes, digital. I believe this is not a standalone booklet that will be shipped separately, but actually the insert that you'd get with a physical copy of the CD.

Hmm who knows, maybe it'll be physical as well, as the CDs are 2 separate ones, in a jewel case each, then both jewel cases come inside a slipcase, so there's plenty of room for that booklet but we'll see I guess... I just wanted to make sure I haven't missed any other shipment 'til now

It seems to be one jewel case, that fits two CDs. From the kickstarter page:

CD description: two-disc jewel case with scabbard, 32-page booklet, picture discs, contains the entire symphonic suite and soundtracks of Little Big Adventure 1 & 2.

Anyway, whichever way it is, its all good.

Yes, that was a beautiful gesture.


The release of the symphony just came at the right time, great Christmas present.
I had a flight late Sunday, so I end-up listening to it most of the flight

I am very pleased with the new Tracks, specially Mother Earth.

Music Box LBA, The Empire and Metamorphosis of the Himalayan are at the top.
I can listening the new Theme version over and over.

Emerald Moon and FT LAps are great - imagine Jean Michel Jarre playing them in one of his concerts...

Overall I am very please with it, I've been listening almost the whole day today, but I miss a symphonic version of Song for Gabriel.

@Quetch it's a single CD case with booklet inside like displayed in this picture: https://scontent-dub4-1.xx.fbcdn.net...a8&oe=6006D428
