Huh, Baten Kaitos was a childhood favorite of mine but I had never taken the time to look into the OST in much detail prior to a recent ear-worm. Was really surprised to see the guy behind my now favorite game was behind that too.
I extracted the original soundtracks of the DLCs out of the DS2 files, named them etc. and put them togheter into a rar file: http://www66.zippyshare.com/v/15901013/file.html Let's hope for a GOTY version of the game where we will have the Official Soundtrack in HQ avaiable and don't have to resort in 160kbits.
I guess there wasn't enough room on CD to make the tracks longer and making it a 2 CD release would've been expensive. And of course the digital OST has same versions. It really is a shame. Covetous Demon being 44 seconds long is simply ridiculous.
In perfect world, they would've mixed longer tracks and give digital download codes for those to people who got the OST.
I can't wait to get my copy of Dark Souls 2, the first one is my favourite game for X360 and one of the best games games I ever played. I hope the soundtrack will be beautiful and epic just like in Dark Souls.
The only soundtracks I like more than the original Dark Souls one are the scores for Rule of Rose and Deadly Premonition, so I have quite high hopes for the second game. Roll on this friday! I hope there will be something that captures the same sense of peaceful wonderment and underlying darkness that was "Firelink Shrine". I got shivers each time I returned to that place, the music was exceptional. Also, "Gwynevere, Princess of Sunlight" was a euphoric piece that helped create one of the most memorable moments of the game.
To the End of the Journey of Glittering Stars ~ I've kept this song in mind for so long without knowing where it came from... Finally I remember! Such a beautiful melody.... it reminds me of my junior high school days <3
The soundtracks for Golden Sun (and TLA) are his best works. Pretty much the most consistently awesome I've heard (well developed melodies, passionate intensity and rich synth composition and sampling). It's a damn shame there was never a soundtrack release; more people should hear it.  Well, nothing to add here.
