This single, along with Surround Theater Sorcerian and Falcom Plus Mix Version, was reprinted in the Falcom Millenium series under the name The Vocal from Ys +. However, the real REVIEW of the single is found here, so you've come to the right place.

This Maxi-Single is essentially two songs: Lilia, and In Adventure World. For one, we get Japanese and English; for the other, Japanese and Instrumental.

Though these songs aren't particularly impressive, and the "Engrish" on track 3 is worth mocking, they do mark a milestone in VGM history. The songs themselves, and what they represent for Ys, and for Falcom, are all quite significant. Because they're so significant, these songs can be found reprinted on a multitude of other Falcom albums, including the Vocal Collections.

Nowadays, owning this old thing is a point of pride of collectors. Otherwise, the "Vocal From Ys +" reprint would suffice. Personally, I don't care too much for these songs, but again, they are meaningful to Falcom's history.
