First Steps perfectly encapsulates the flavor of both the game and soundtrack of Celeste—it’s an energetic, brisk introduction to the adventure that’s in store, while also hinting at some of its darker elements. This arrangement explores the theme in some new ways, particularly with some reharmonization, and culminating in the energetic motor rhythm with the left hand simulating the driving percussion hits of the original.
The quality of this album came to a huge surprise to me upon playing the game for the first time. Each new track clearly draws from its original counterpart, while adding its own flair and shooting up the intensity by tenfold. How it does this, I'm not even sure. Each track screams challenge and perfectly fits and boosts the shrill determination felt by the player (or at least me) upon entering each level. default_nano
How does she do it yet AGAIN?? Each track feels so natural and really flows with the gameplay so well that you almost forget that it's there at all (other than the amazing music playing in your ears). I couldn't manage to get tired of a single track here, despite getting stuck on Farewell for over an hour.
And nothing. Nothing. beats the incredible rush of determination you feel at the beginning of 'Beyond The Heart' (although the other tracks are all brilliant in their own right). default_nano
