Before we begin, I would like to thank the Lord Jesus Christ for my life, and all the gifts which I've been given in it, including the ability to make this extension. Your name be glorified, my Savior, even in something as small as this. Amen.

Welcome, viewer, welcome indeed to Amateur Extension Theater 2000. Whether you join us now for the first time, or for the umpteenth; be you listening with us under the light of a silvery moon, or at the farthest horizon, know that you can count upon your ever quirky host Alkahest to provide you with only the finest in extended music listening.
And if it's your first time reading one of these, you'd probably think I'm serious all the time. Hehehe, would that ever be a mistaken impression! Arrr. But anyway, on with the show.
Originally released by Working Designs on the Sega-CD platform as 'Lunar: The Silver Star', the game was enough of a hit to warrant a re-release on the PSX as 'Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete'. While a few plot points were changed or polished, the tale remains much the same: Young ocarina player Alex Noah dreams of becoming a Dragonmaster, just like his hero, Dyne. But his quest to become a hero will be fraught with peril, as a rising force of evil known as the exiled Vile Tribe, and their new leader, the Magic Emperor, seek to plunge the world into an era of unrelenting darkness...
Composed by Noriyuki Iwadare, 'Silver Light' is the main title screen of Lunar, and a spectacular one at that. This is track is peace personified; a musical juncture where tranquility and serenity blend into a melody of timeless, ethereal beauty. The PSP remake's version is just as grand, if not maybe a little moreso... but can anything really beat the nostalgia of the original version?
Okay, technically, the Sega CD is the original version, not this one. Details! *cough* Anyway, for those curious, I edited the opening cutscenes together in the manner that I did, to mostly reflect the strong bond shared between Alex and Luna, while showing off the world of Lunar. Call me crazy, but the idea of the Magic Emperor and Xenobia menacing the screen didn't feel like it matched the feel of the music, ya know?
Next up, forget silver and gold; Silver and Blue decorations are what's in this year! AET2k is quick to hop onto this growing trend with the title screen theme of Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete, plus the (not so) Great Silver Shrine tune from Skies of Arcadia, and to wrap things up, it's A Blue Town from SaGa Frontier! Whew. I hope you'll enjoy these offerings as always; take care, and may God bless.

You know, 'by the light of the blue star' just doesn't have the same ring to it that 'by the light of the silvery moon' does.
