Admittedly, one of my least favorite parts of Breath of the Wild is the music. It’s not that when you actually hear music, it isn’t beautifully composed, because it is. It’s the lack of variation of music and how often the music in the game is triggered, that grinds my gears. However, that’s for another day. So, if I wanted to go listen to some music from the latest Zelda installment, would I turn the game on and have Link stand about in a place I like the music? Would I listen to the sound track one score at a time?
I would listen to the Breath of the Wild- Medley by Grissini Project.
The Grissini Project takes what many have referred to as a lack luster sound track, and breaths such a beautiful soul into it, that it would give even the most hardened criminal chill bumps. Plus, there is the added benefit that the Main Theme, On Horse (Night), Rito’s Village, Hyrule Castle and Beast Ganon (Final Phase) are all played back to back, without having to traverse all over Hyrule to hear each theme.
The arrangement is very well done. Between it and the visuals in the video, you could actually believe Ganon is lurking right around the corner, especially when the pipe organs kick in for Hyrule Castle theme. It gives off an eerie feeling and made me second-guess the thought of entering Hyrule castle. Exactly how you should feel when you’re entering the stronghold that Calamity Ganon has somewhere nestled in.
The Grissini Project suggests you listen to their work with headphones on or good speakers to get the most out of it. Just be careful if you do. You just might forget who you are. You just might think you’re the chosen hero. You just might put on your own Tunic of the Wild, and you just might think you should embark on your own real life journey to battle Calamity Ganon.
Yeah, it’s that good.
