MWHA: Track #4 - Dragon Rock - Star Fox Adventures

Before I get started, let me just say sorry for missing the deadline this past Thursday. Life sometimes throws you a curve-ball, and believe me....that last one was a whamy! Anyway MOVING ON!

At the risk of being slaughtered by the armies of the internet, this next MWHA track is a piece nestled quietly at the end of a game most people found boorish and incredibly dissatisfying. While the game Star Fox Adventures fell short of most people's expectations, you would do well to listen to some of the many amazing compositions that came from it. One of the better tracks heard in this first land-based Star Fox game was one of the last levels to complete. I am of course referring to Dragon Rock.

In the game, Dragon Rock is a mutated wasteland used as a prison camp and stronghold by General Scales. This orbiting hunk of Sauria is also the resting place of the devilish Drakor; guardian of the last Spell Stone. The background music for this level as you traverse the terrain on foot (since the music does change per situations you encounter) is quite beautiful; a perfect juxtaposition to the apparent nightmares holed up at the planetary chunk's core.

For being the most bad-ass looking boss in the whole game, this guy was RIDICULOUSLY easy to kill. >.<

The different sounds that accompany the harp's melody add to the eerie ambiance of the piece. In my opinion, composer David Wise was spot on creating a song to play behind this scene; Fox, tasked with rescuing stranded dinosaur soldiers at the request of the remorseful gatekeeper.

Remixes for this particular piece were in short supply. I'd be willing to wager that mostly, this has to do with the game's seemingly universal poor reception. But there is at least one remix out there that I can share with you guys- and it's a good'n.

I do agree with the mass majority about Star Fox Adventures; the title simply fell short of expectations (as reworkings of popular series often do). But if this game had a glimmering stream of hope to look upon, it was the awe inspiring music Wise beautifully crafted; songs like Dragon Rock. I have high hopes that there are people out there that heard and also enjoyed the music of this game, regardless of it's reputation.
