I still feel this game gets a bad wrap. It was weak in some areas, but you'd be hard pressed to find a Zelda with less filler for its length, better combat, and better boss fights.
Also, yes, the music was superb in this one particularly, but it definitely had a different vibe than the other Zeldas. I loved it a lot. Each track had a lot of atmosphere to it and brings on a lot of fond memories.
All in all, there was just something unique about this Zelda. Unique in a good way IMHO. It's a one of a kind experience.
You're kidding me, right?
