However, I'm almost convinced that Jarred can do just as good a job to grasp the style.
I hope you're right, because IMO the music was just as important to the atmosphere of the games as anything else. The music really helped turn a bunch of (beautifully done) VGA scenes into cinematic moments.
I personally think Jarred should listen to the KQ5 soundtrack--that soundtrack for me is the best KQ soundtrack and captures the heart of King's Quest, musically speaking.
I don't want like overdone, epic, vocal songs or bland Kingdom Hearts sort of music (looks over at TSL).
