Title: Monk I
Filename: monk_i_v14.s3m
Posted Sun 29th Dec 2019
Rated 8 / 10
Quite a nice tune, though in some ways I actually prefer the released version.
For those wondering, all of the Monk *.s3m modules by Wonder appear to have been composed for a game called Los Secretos de Villa del Agua (officially translated as "The Secrets of Water Town" on the CD for another game but likely never released in English, even though there was a plan to localize it at one point) which was a game for the blind created by Code Factory some time in the early 2000s, and likely the only audio game ever to use modules for its music. Most of the released modules were unaltered from their in-game versions, but there are a few that were changed from their final releases, this being one of them.

It has all the chord progressions that make me happy! :) Only issues are the bad sample quality and that everything is in the center, I really think this module could have done with some panning on many of the instruments, as well as some volume adjustment.

OK it uses the most overused MIDI samples in history but so what? This is actually quite good :).

Finally, a module with vocals that actually work and don't sound terrible! :) Very well done, though it does get a little bit repetitive towards the end. Doesn't detract from the module all that much, though, and I can get use to it.

A nice little rendition of "Happy Birthday", though it could do without the bad singing in the beginning. At least Traven seems to acknowledge that it's not the best :P. Still, though, it gets a 7 from me, aside from the singing it's quite a good tune.

Christmas Tune? More like Minuet in A Major :). Not too bad, but sounds very similar to eftecho.mod.

I first heard this on a Gravis Ultrasound presentation about a year ago, I really liked it, though I didn't know what it was until I found a disk online. This is one of the best modules I've ever listened to, and holds up very well even 26 years later. And to think this is only four channels. It deserves nothing less than a 10.

A nice soundtrack, though subsongs two and three could really do without that weird out of sync drum loop. Fortunately it appears to be muted in the game, and muting channel 1 gets rid of it.

In my opinion, tracking wise, this is not the best of modules, making very heavy use of large loops instead of samples, though it does have some decent spots, such as the cover of "Ode to Joy" at the end. However, it is somewhat noteworthy for being the largest module I've ever seen, 71 mb uncompressed.

I think this is quite a nice tune to listen to, actually, not bad at all for a pure AdLib module. The previous reviewer probably was not playing this in a player with AdLib support, which likely explains the 1/10 rating.

Quite a nice mod, I actually prefer this beta tune to the menu theme that ended up being used in the final game. Interestingly, if you look through the patterns, there's a cover of the Flyby theme from Unreal hidden in them, unfortunately XMPlay and many other module players don't seem to detect the unused patterns as subsongs.

Another great module from the Zuma series :) this time from the game Zuma's Revenge. Phillipe Charon's tracking appears to have improved significantly since the original Zuma, as this module doesn't rely on loops nearly as much as the original did. Some samples are reused, but many of them are higher quality. Recommended. As a sidenote, my favorite track is subsong 5, I haven't played the game so I can't provide the name of the track as the MO3 has no comments. :)

This is quite a nice module from the game Zuma by PopCap Games. While I haven't played the game, this is very good music which oddly makes me think of tribal rituals for some reason. My only gripe about this is that it uses a lot of drum loops, which can make the tune boring after a while.

I think this had the potential to be interesting, but the author of the module didn't really execute the idea very well, bad timing of the AOL samples in various places, and loud clicks in the beginning of several of them.

While I very much do like this module and like this version of it much more than the original, some of the guitars really could have been sampled better. There's a low pitched buzz in the background of some of them.

Incredibly short, but still kind of cute in its own little way, I could listen to it on repeat for quite a while :). An 8 channel version of this module is on Modland, though the track doesn't seem to make particular use of the extra channels.

Despite the rather appropriate name of this track, it's actually a nice take on the classic Tetris theme. It's a shame the author of the track appears to be unknown, if they've created any other tracks, I'd probably be a fan of them. My only complaint about this, and admittedly this is a little thing, is the ending, I think it's rather abrupt.

Umm, what? This song has a B Minor chord on the left, and is in two keys on the right, C major and B flat major. It's also incredibly repetitive, and those bizarre voice samples don't save the tune at all. OK maybe they do, somewhat, they prevent me from giving it a 1/10. :) Overall, not recommended.

Definitely one of the longest modules I've ever seen, possibly one of the longest on the archive, though this seems like it was developed as several tracks that were merged in to one very large one. I'm a fan of this, even though it's one of DavidN's older modules, though I don't quite follow the story, it seems to be some kind of life lesson, something to the effect of don't blindly follow people who promise you the world, they could hurt you. All in all, a good module, and well worth the 41 minute length.

OK, I'd fully understand if somebody didn't like this because of the overuse of loops in the samples, though at least this soundtrack doesn't pull a Tactical Ops and call something with five samples, all of which being large loops and nothing else, a module. If you're going to track like that, just use an MP3. But back to this soundtrack. In my opinion, even though it overuses loops, it has a pretty decent amount of sampling that makes up for it, and I genuinely like some of the subsongs, some of them them have a pretty interesting sound, especially with the odd vocal samples that this soundtrack contains.
