Top Dollar has ripped all of the in-game music from Prophecy and made them available as high quality MP3s.
This is one of those game scores that evoke nostalgic feelings in me. For other people, this might apply to one of the countless Final Fantasy scores or the (awesome) Chrono Cross. But for me (who got into japanese video game score much, much later), this was one of the first games I would have bought the accompanying OST. Some might say: But there WAS an OST for it. Yes, indeed, BUT: The OST featured nothing from the score by Oldziey and only two songs by Cobalt 60 featured in the game. So I skipped this one.

In this new environment, he's been able explore adding tons of detail to the cockpit, hull surface and landing gear.
