ArcSys OST Discussion

Recommended Posts

Yeah, the first three notes in the chorus of One Dawn are the same as Marionette (A-G-F, quarter-quarter-half). It's unfortunately glaring since it's right at the start, but nothing else in the chorus melody is the same.

But, I like how...serene they made it. Like you're in a field with daisies and stuff. METAL DAISIES.

There's a lot of major chords in there, when Awe of She was basically all sadness. And the strings are really prominent. I'd say this song really stands out among the others in the game. :thumbu:

'Marionette' and 'One Dawn' are quite similar in the sense that they are both in the same key - 'Marionette' is mostly in D minor, whereas 'One Dawn' is in F major. D minor and F major are relative keys, so they basically use the same notes throughout.

Both songs also run at a very similar tempo (though 'One Dawn' uses a lot more double-pedal drumming compared to 'Marionette', not unlike modern power metal. A comparison can be made in this regard with both versions of 'Condemnation Wings' (BlazBlue Tsubaki themes)).

That's not forgetting that both songs, as other posters have brought up, start the chorus with the A-G-F notes (though the 'One Dawn' chorus goes right away for straightforward F major chord, whereas 'Marionette' starts with a more tense G minor in the chorus), with the instrumentation stopping and letting the A-G notes shine on their own. Pausing the instrumentation while starting the next section with just a couple of melodic notes seems to be something Daisuke likes to play around with. 'Diva Of Despair' and 'Bloodline' (BlazBlue Ragna/Jin vs Izanami theme) are some other examples of this.

Could anyone who has the Revelator soundtrack post the lyrics for 'The Ship'? The song's really grown on me, and I'm pretty sure on like, 85% of the lyrics, but it'd be neat to figure out for sure what the rest are! I've been looking all over with no luck yet, so figured I'd try here, hehe.

I want to breathe

Woh we are pain biters
Yippee Ki Yay
Want some safe intoxication?
Woh we are pain biters
Yippee Ki Yay
There's no safe intoxication

Gotta step up to the dizzying platform
Don't miss the show, it's the best you'll ever have
Nothing can go wrong All should be under control
That's my concern, Just call me a coward
Here's the music Stakes are so high
Times for no questions yeah

I want to breathe
I want to live

Woh we are pain biters
Yippee Ki Yay
Want some safe intoxication?
Woh we are pain biters
Yippee Ki Yay
There's no safe intoxication damn

Wanna Be Crazy

Behold I'm sharp-witted


Those in charge don't try to see
Speak up? Not worth the risk and time
Blockhead Don't make me angry What a bother
Use those telescopes
Bring it on Deep inside of you
(you) know it's crazy Why not say so?

King's Chair Time to pull them down
Prove wrong those silver ties
Cry for the moon, and keep being troubled
World wouldn't change if no one acts
Don't waste your time on trifles

You Wanna be Crazy? You Wanna go Freak out?
You don't wanna breakdown? Ignite (your) rusty heart
Shred the bindings don't turn around
You need to lose once to see Let's get down

Behold I'm fast as wind
But who can I chase and overtake
Can't move. Just checking the scale all day
Back down Can't stand to run watching your rear
Use the kinescope
Bring it on Deep inside of you
(you) know it's crazy Why not say so?

King's Chair Time to pull them down
Prove wrong those silver ties

Cry for the moon, and keep being troubled
World wouldn't change if no one acts
Don't waste your time on trifles.

You Wanna be Crazy? You Wanna go Freak out?
You don't wanna breakdown? Ignite (your) rusty heart.
Shred the bindings don't turn around
Dig out again what you've lost Let's get down

Do not say a word
I know what you're thinking.
I'm Terrified to see (Oh) the man in the mirror

*Chorus (can not understand)
Are you feeling sick.
The Doctor asks me.
Why can't I give him an answer?

You Wanna be Crazy? You Wanna go Freak out?
You don't wanna breakdown? Ignite (your) rusty heart
Shred the bindings don't turn around
You need to lose once to see the truth

You Wanna be Crazy? You Wanna go Freak out?
You don't wanna breakdown? Ignite (your) rusty heart
Shred the bindings don't turn around
Dig out again what you've lost Let's get down

(if) You got the Guts count me in Let's get down

Sky Should Be High

I just tried to take the PATH


that led me to be FREE and ended in this bind

The PAST is what it's called
FILTH is what it is.
That's the wall of the CELL

Fades away
Fades away like footsteps on the shoreline
why? They try to bring me down.
Sky should be high Backflow

HERE we go again CON--tradiction
Should I stay or should I die

TRIED to pave a path
DUG a huge hole
had no clue that was my GRAVE

Fades away
Hands and feet are bound Can't even see
why? They try to bring me down.
Sky should be high Backflow

Backflow
Backflow As dark shades are made by the sun
Backflow good booze is making it just worse.
Backflow

The more words, the less I get
This world is built in brimstone

Can't you see
The innocent may find the way
Wise men lose track of the single path
No one knows tomorrow

I'll never ever kneel down

Stairway
Jaded town of god. What the heck
Stay away Not going there
Sky should be high

Oh Fade away
Fades away like footsteps on the shoreline
(Yeah) Fades away just one moment left
Sky should be high Backflow

Freesia

This is space base.


This is space base, Can you hear me
Air is enough. No need to worry.
At least enough for two

This is space base.
Information, resources, You have everything
Find what's lacking's far more difficult
Except one little thing.

The Whole world is kind to me
But sorry sorry sorry
Wearing a fine suit,paying by a credit card
but I can not prove myself

This is space base.
This is space base. Can you hear me
The world may crumble down with
just one piece missing

The Whole world is kind to me
But sorry sorry sorry
wearing a shiny crown, paid by a blanc cheque
That still will not convince my self

This is the center of the Universe
But without her, I'm not here

Only my shell remains here
Lonely my soul left some where

Freesia Here I am
And sorry sorry sorry
Flying through the galaxies,
Hands shaken everywhere
But I, but I, want you by myside

The Whole world is kind to me
But sorry sorry sorry
Wearing a fine suit, paying by a credit card
But I can not prove myself

Divide My Heart

Gathering. I picked up many wards


(I was) Absorbed in a book and didn't hear your call.
Suddenly, my journey has begun
While everyone around blessed me, how could I've known?

Day by day,
I thought of it Falling down to the abyss
The answer that I found was not right

Divide my heart Someone, dies unfairly
Divide my heart Someone burned to soul by vengeance
I don't know what has started all this tragedy
I don't know it. So I . . .

Gathering. You picked out many words
(You were) Thrown in to the flood of rage, hatred and all
Suddenly, your journey has begun
If everything you know was biased, how would you know?

Day by day,
You think of it Falling down to the abyss
The answer that you found was not right

Divide my heart Someone, dies unfairly
Divide my heart Someone burned to soul by vengeance
I don't know why we started all this tragedy
I don't know why. So I . . .

I have gathered a lot
I have gathered so much
All the pieces that fit into my box
But there was not one important thing.

Back then, I did it every day.
One day was just like another.
I believed it was my own intention,
But now, I'm not sure anymore
Suddenly, my journey has begun
While everyone around blessed me, how could I've known?

The World that I know is cut out of an album of much more
Something tends to direct me and makes me feel like
it's my choice

Wired limbs, Ears of clay
Smile of wax, Eyes of glass
Sponge brain, Ash heart
Look I'm not a bad man

Divide my heart Someone, dies unfairly
Divide my heart Someone burned to soul by vengeance
I don't know what has started all this tragedy
I don't know it.

Divide my heart Someone, dies unfairly
Divide my heart Someone burned to soul by vengeance
I don't know why we started all this tragedy
Do I?

The Ship

"The Bruce"


The ship of "Captain Steel"
It was great and I longed to be like him
Fiery red, and big as a castle
Only one ship like it in the world

It is out dated Everyone forgot it
The sail is torn, and the mast is broken too
Blues is idle abandoned in the distance
I try reaching my arms out, but too far to touch

Sail on For the blues. To get back the shine

Someone laughed I dare say
No more things to throw away
My ship is small and is not painted
The keel is at the end of my rope
Oh sail, please endure the raging storm.
I'll try, I'll bet
on my dream, having only one.

"The Bruce"
The ship of "Captain Steel"
It run so fast no one else could follow
It's long lost, sailed in to the sunset
The only ship I want in the world

Sail on For the blues. To get back the shine.

Someone laughed I dare say
No more things to throw away
My ship is small but is still floating
countless scratches are baked yellow

Oh sail, guide me through this maelstrom
I'll try, I'll bet on my fate, having only one.

"The Bruce"
The ship of "Captain Steel"
It shined so much you could hardly see it
Now I am old, but somehow I'm happy
One day a lad came up and said

Your ship is small and is not painted
The keel is at the end of your rope

But still it's the kind of ship I adore
Oh please, tell me,
How could I get one of those

I told the brat that he already knows
The answer lies there within your heart

Set sail, Set sail Bon voyage
You try, you bet
on your life, having only one.

Blank

Don't say bye, don't say bye


It's just a short break on the way
Don't say bye, don't say bye
Now, pick up the map that was
discarded

The whitespace was innocent
for the man didn't paint with no
colors
He had a brush and a thick sketchbook
But he had so much more

The storm comes on calmly
The storm comes on suddenly
Keep on walking though it hurts
To find a space on a blank paper

The storm comes on calmly
The storm comes on suddenly
He knows how to ride it now
To find a color on a blank paper

Don't ask why, don't ask why
It's just a caprice detour
Don't ask why, don't ask why
It's time to get back on the road

The wide space was innocent
For the man didn't write in no letters
He had a pen and plenty black ink
But he had so so much to say

The storm comes on calmly
The storm comes on suddenly
Keep on walking against the wind
To find a space on a blank paper

The storm comes on calmly
The storm comes on suddenly
He knows how to write it now
(To) define the color on a
blank paper
When he has given out some day
What is on his mind?
Pointless I will give you that, but
I did not want to believe
such words "that's the way it goes"
But hey,
my journey is over with

The storm comes on calmly
The storm comes on suddenly
Cold and wet and hurt by rain
(But) Keep on walking just go on
and on

The storm comes on calmly
The storm comes on suddenly
Keep on walking though it hurts
To find a space on a blank paper

The storm comes on calmly
The storm. . .

When his time runs out some day
Where will his heart be?
Breathless I will give you that, but
I did not want to believe
such words "that's the way it goes"
My friend
Yeah I'm a fool
Still I know this
(The) Wind may blow again

All I Can Do

Nothing more I say


Nothing changes by words
Nothing changes anyway
Only time passes

That's just the way how it is
Someone must be thinking so

I can not do anything for you
Heigh-ho Talking is not in my line
If I can meet you somewhere
I'll be there at your side with a smile
Can't do anything else oh
Nothing nothing nothing else

There are things I can't forgive
There are things I can not allow
There are things I want to though
Oh, how time flies by

You always have to choose a side
Everyone is trying to convince

I can not do anything for you
Heigh-ho Talking is not in my line
If I can meet you somewhere
I'll be there at your side with a smile
That's all I can do for now oh
Nothing nothing nothing else

I can not change who I am
Heigh-ho Don't wanna make you cry
If I know how to make you happy
I'll be there at your side with a smile

I can not do anything for you
Heigh-ho Talking is not in my line
If I can meet you somewhere
I'll be there at your side with a smile
Can't do anything else than that
Nothing nothing nothing else
Nothing nothing nothing else
Nothing nothing else

TSUKI NO SHIHAI

Birds fly

According to instinct.
No one has told them how or why
 
To survive
To connect
Die a ruthless death, that's life(edited)
 
 
Fly (Get high)
Dive (Burn out)
Before the moon's domination
Fly (Get high)
Dive (Burn out)
Before being dragged down
Don't lose your wings
Even if it turns to ash
Fly (Get high)
Dive (Burn out)
Even if you writhe
The days of just reacting
That is not called evolution
 
The rules of Nature.
I live, but how about you?
The brain is a device.
Heart is an organ
 
To survive
To descend
A meaningless life, that's death
 
Fly (Get high)
Dive (Burn out)
Before the star's demolition
Fly (Get high)
Dive (Burn out)
Before being struck down
 
Don't lose your wings
Even if it turns to dust
Fly (Get high)
Dive (Burn out)
Even if you starve
The days of just complaining
That is not called revolution
 
Live  Live  That is life.
Die  Die  That is life.
 
Here are clothes and shoes.
Even a map is prepared.
Nothing left for devising
Nothing left to find out
 
Wash wash wash away the
knowledge Before be-coming
just a machine that breathes
Throw throw throw away the
glasses Before be-coming
the machine forseeing the future
 
To survive
To connect
Die a ruthless death, that's life
 
Fly (Get high)
Dive (Burn out)
Before the moon's domination
Fly (Get High)
Dive (Burn out)
Before being dragged down
Don't lose your wings
Even if it turns to ash
Fly (Get high)
Dive (Burn out)
Even if you writhe

I went to look at some gameplay footage on Es so I can catch some more of "conciliator"... [cause the trailer wasn't enough]

 

I'm absolutely in love with it! Can't wait for CF to come out so I can listen to it in it's full prime! Kudos to Kikuo for creating a lovely theme for Es!

So, Mai just got announced for BBCF. I'm actually quite curious about how her theme is going to be like. Since she doesn't have a spin-off game like Es from which something can be pulled, I guess Lord Ishiwatari will be composing her theme?

Reincarnation... Honestly, I'm a little torn on how to feel about. Don't get me wrong, it's really neat by itself, and it definitely fits our twisted Mercury family, but to me it seems like it's unsure about what kind of theme it's trying to be.

 

It feels like a battle theme but at the same time, it doesn't...

 

But maybe I'm thinking too much into it, I still like it, nonetheless!

I like it. That weird synth sound used kind of threw me off, but the riff in which it's used is pretty fantastic (I guess it also works because Kokonoe's theme 'Science Fiction' also had lots of those synth elements). I'm also hearing a bit of the 'One Dawn' verse riff in this, which is pretty cool. Something about the theme makes it seem a little more depressing than say Bloodline (which is almost majestic/heroic in the chorus) - I swear you can almost hear some of the characters going "I don't really want to fight".

It's definitely a battle theme, but I'd call this a battle theme with misgivings.

Alright, I got to listen to all the new music [including non battle themes, and of course, we have yet to hear the full of the Es and Mai themes]

 

I think I love CF's OST a little more than CP's OST [and this is coming from someone who LOVES the CP OST]

 

Here's my feels on three of the non battle themes:

 

The Main Menu theme sounds really majestic, like you're wandering in a peaceful realm, away from the chaos that is BlazBlue's world of time traveling, mindfucking, heartbreaking battlefield of a world.

 

The Next Stage theme feels pretty tragic... Almost as if it's foreshadowing a heartbreaking scene in the story mode... Please let me be wrong.

 

As for the Game Over theme... It's peaceful, like as if you're character dies but is somehow relieved to finally be free from the madness of the world...

 

But those are just my interpretations!

 

 

I'm really looking forward to the themes of Es and Mai.

 

And one last note: Daisuke... I think you've really come a long way from when you first started composing for BlazBlue. Keep rocking dude...

So there is a total new melody like they did in the CP? Duh I was expecting that ArcSys will put "Stardust Memory" with burning sound effect again. The same theme which was in the CT and CS.

In general I was hoping that the one very good tune and the most underatted as well "The Road To Hope" will be able to hear in the Central Fiction but because tone of this game seems to be even darker than Calamity Trigger I doubt about that possibility. The same thing with jazzy/bossa-nova like "Lakeside". On the other hand Ragna is going to meet with Tao in the "Story" so there is a chance for more calm music.

Es theme it's remixed and speed up track from XBlaze Code: Embryo (yes, yes I know that I am writing about obvius things) and originally it calls... just XBLAZE. However this remix... is amazing in the "Es" introduction. Definitely better then archetype.

I hope they release the official soundtrack quickly, last time with CP it was as quick as one month later after the release of the game. The same with Revelator, one month and a few days.

Yeah, it seems the theme around the CF OST focuses on dark and misery with a bit of hope and peace.

 

Wait, "conciliation" is a remix of "XBLAZE"? Wow, super neat!

Yeah, I think it's safe to assume that we'll have the CF Soundtrack in damn near no time flat after the game hits the stores!

 

 

 

On another note: Holy Tsuki no Shihai, Naoto's theme in the demo sounds pretty different than from the arcades. Daisuke must've thought it wasn't good enough or something. Intriguing...

I don't know when this went up exactly, but apparently due to popular demand, ASW is releasing a Blu-Ray version of the Guilty Gear Ro2N summer concert. However, while the DVD and CD is releasing next week, this Blu-Ray won't release until November. It's functionally the same as the DVD, like, nothing extra besides the HD quality, according to the description.

https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B01JY5O65Q/ref=pd_sim_15_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=JCNT39HX8VD2T8DSEA65

I'm not buying it twice, so might as well go with the Blu-Ray since it exists. lol

I preordered the BD version at the end of august in CDJapan and the release date was the same for the 3 things, DVD/BD/CD , I guess I will grab the CD version too, I don't want to wait 2 months to get the BD version between the delay and shipping.

In case anyone wants to know, the GG concert is already out in the internet (don't ask for links, is against the forum guidelines), scans are available in vgmdb.

Edit: Done listening, an OK album, after the other concerts I still think Hashimoto is missing something when it comes to live performances. Is a shame the BB concert is not going to be released, I have the feeling that was the best of all they have done until now.

Es and Nine have a VS theme. It's the opening for Xblaze Lost:Memories, END GAZER.
 

Here's the only YouTube video I can post within what the rules allow (due to it being official) but for the actual VS theme it's the full 4 minute and 30 second version, not this short OP version.

It starts out sorta traditional Japanese style but quickly transitions into something rock-like. It has vocals.

Also

 

- Susano'o's theme name is "MUST DIE" [or "HAKAISHIN" one or the other is right]

- and there is an Unlimited Izanami theme called "THE WORLD END"

 

They are also on the internet [as well as Es theme, "conciliation"]

 

If there's anything else, let me know

I am in love with "MUST DIE", it just blew my mind! I did not expect it to have vocals, but oh my Tsuki no Shihai, it's so goooooood! I'm dying to know who the vocalist is! [Cause going by voice, I'm pretty sure as hell it ain't Jun'ya Motomura or Naoki Hashimoto]

 

 

conciliation is amazing too!

 

Today is a good day for a fan of BB's music like me!
