My Feedback on the New Music

Recommended Posts

I also don't know a lot about music, but I agree with everything said.
Old work music feels like I am walking, doing things step-by-step, while the new work music feels like I'm running from something.

While I do agree that the new "busy/working music" isn't fit for when you're making boards, I'd say that I do really like the new song, It feels like you're exploring and you don't know what dangers awaits or that you're doing your own stuff (mining, cutting trees, etc) but should still take care and pay attention to the dangers lurking around in the constant. I also like the new combat music.

Btw, they do such a great job when creating those musics, those instrumental sounds are stupendous. Props to the people involved in the creation of them.

Yeah, the new one has a much heavier sense of dread to it, and I think it really adds to the atmosphere. 

I mean, you wouldn’t wake up on a deserted island and start going for a casual stroll, would you?

Why is everyone saying the new music fits the lunar island?

I went to the lunar island and the new music doesn't fit there AT ALL (especially with the ambience), but it fits fine on the main island.

The new music reminds me of Mario and Luigi mixed with Hamlet or Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, rather than DST.

However, the old music fit so perfectly to capture the feeling of Wilson working.

Klei should add some new settings then each player can configure what music they want to hear or not... I mean mods have configuration settings to change almost every detail about them, so why can't Klei add some more settings to change various things too and give more freedom to the player :wilsondisapproving:?

Like there's already settings for pointless things like Wigfrid's umlauts thing... it's about time they really should add settings which actually matter like insanity sounds volume, what music you want to hear, the intensity of insanity's saturation effect, ect..

the old autumn music just sounds way more genuine , the new autumn music sounds like they're trying to replicate the DS atmosphere with more modern compositions but that's all they're doing is trying to copy it

it goes in hand with how over the years the game has lost its scratchy sketch artstyle and has become a lot more modern and clean looking . just like how they removed literally all of the artistic stylization from the water and even the new waves ; in favour of generic cartoon water

the new autumn music would be okay if it only played during the night or dusk since it sounds like a night or dusk track , but it really doesn't sound much different from modded music that tries to copy DS . the old one was just better composed

Considering DST was always supposed to be a sequel of sorts to DS I like that they are refreshing both characters and music to further make DST its own thing. They should have taken this approach at the beginning before people got even more attached to music that was already 3+ years old when DST released.

I don't the music is being changed back, as the comment sounds more like they used the wrong version of the song and it's going to be changed to the correct version.

Agreed to everything you described here. I have to admit that I would be extremely happy if Klei added an option to mix old/new music or select that either updated or old plays in game, since it's client based rather than server based.

I'm choosing to tentatively interpret "the real version is coming soon" as being that the new music, or a version of it, will be implemented in some other part of the game, and the regular autumn music will be put back. Otherwise, I would think that they would just say, "this is not a bug, we meant to change the music for autumn."

(Please, Klei, please, I don't want to have to mod the original music back in, there was nothing wrong with it, I love that song...)

I have no problem with the new music in a vacuum, I was just weirded out by the autumn music suddenly being different when it had been the same in both singleplayer and DST since well before I started playing in 2015.

I think that response does mean it was intended for a different part of the game; surely the bug report would have been closed if the music was replaced on purpose, even if it was replaced with the wrong song.
