Anglerbe's Soundtrack of the Week

The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask

 Astral Observatory

Extended version just for you people. As mentioned by Anglerte, Jburitto recently played a bit of Majora's Mask, during which we encountered the old man in the Astral Observatory. Majora's Mask has one of my all time favorite soundtracks, and this stands out as one of my favorite from it. And that's saying something. MM is just an incredibly atmospheric and surprisingly dark game. To see everyone slowly decay into doom and despair, only at the last second to teleport to 3 days prior, where (almost) everyone is again oblivious to their impending doom, gives you a great sense of loneliness, but also of a glimmer of hope that, bit by bit, maybe the world can be saved. The Astral Observatory, with this track playing, feels like a safe haven in a dying world, despite that the moon continues to descend toward Termina.
