    crystal chronicles was an amazing game IF you had three other friends to play with. otherwise, yes, I could see how it would be mediocre.

    hi. sorry to disturb you... but don't you mind to spend some couple of minutes out of your spare time estimating music of a pretty good composer (imho) whom most probable you've never heard about? if you don't, here it is: Alexander Piterskiy thank you anyway.

    Honestly, when I've had a bad day, the Crystal Chronicles soundtrack cheers me up quite nicely. :)

    Why the fuck can't last.fm combine the tags with the romaji version of her name? I can't edit the info to correct it, and I shouldn't even have to. This didn't used to be a problem either.

    She did Snoppdraken. At the moment I'm listening the Echoes Of Time soundtrack, fully composed by Kumi Tanioka. And the My Life As A King music was composed by her too.

    its really amazing how good the crystal chronicles soundtrack is. so much so that it wouldn't be the same without it.
