Music of the Week #533

Switched up.

I got some posts out, now I’m going to relax before struggling to write up a game I played nearly 4 months ago. The time to binge Part 6 is nigh for me so I better get prepared. I’m free but there’s so much I want to do and so little time to do it.

I got ahead of myself last week and skipped over this song, one that I particularly like. Acting as what the Shooting Star Summit was in the first game, you need to come back here after every chapter to let your map be updated to show you the location of the next Crystal Star. The theme is appropriately very foreboding and unsettling and the Pit of 100 Trials is right next door too. I really like this theme for its atmospheric dread since I’m always a fan of giving you a preview of the endgame early on and constantly reminding you that you’ll have to deal with this issue when it’s finally time.
