This is another song I’ve had queued up for a while.
It was fairly straightforward to write about and I think that has to do with me being familiar enough to have an idea of how the song goes, but not so familiar that I’m stumped for words.
I got across more of what I feel was the emotional content of the song rather than anything else and I feel that works. That said, I think I overstated a bit.
Yuko Komiya’s (小見山 優子) “Everlasting Words” (“悠久の言葉”) is from Monster Hunter Tri‘s soundtrack, Monster Hunter Tri Original Soundtrack.
I hope you enjoy.
A group of voices call out as though in celebration. The heralding of a victory, impassioned and powerful. Shortly strings and percussion join in. A slight pause and the percussion becomes stronger and more beat-driven. Slow brass among other sounds draw out with the vocals, almost carrying a sense of calm in the sense of celebration.
Relief and joy come through as the sounds and the voices ride over a landscape bound by ocean. Soon they reach higher and higher and a heavy weight lifts. A catharsis is reached and it spreads out as sounds mix and pull back after the voices do so themselves. In a small amount of space strings and a lighter percussion play out, closing things with a slight conclusive trail of emotion and narrative as the song ends.
