Just wondering, how were the track names for this game decided? I just find it odd that it seems the majority of it uses the English names, while "Townspeople" uses the translated Japanese name. I don't think it's too much of a problem here because "Townspeople" and "People" are similar, but I'm wondering how things like "Only Lonely Boy" (with the Japanese name "Searching for a Love Song") are planned (if they are) to be named. It's a whole different story with songs that get their name from a compilation of songs off of the Symphonic Suite soundtracks, like the medley "Endless World" which contains the songs "Crossing the Plains/Unknown World" from DQ1, "A Long Journey" and "Endless World" from DQ2, but everyone seems to think "A Long Journey" is actually the song called "Endless World" for god knows what reason, and some English names off of those soundtracks are off in completely different ways like the song "My Road My Journey" from DQ2 which is more something like "This Road, Our Voyage" in Japanese... Maybe I'm sounding a little bit too paranoid here, but I've always had issues with deciding how I should refer to 99% of the entire series' soundtrack so I think a little bit of thought should go into naming this stuff here... or something... --Banshiryuu 02:40, 2 December 2012 (MST)

Recordings

Is it me, or are the recordings... off? I'm hearing issues with timing in notes and automation, especially in the first three songs, but definitely throughout most of them on the page. --Minus0 (talk) 21:21, 8 February 2016 (MST)
