S.E.X.X.Y.? More than enough... Rounding out our run of excellent, backlogged album cuts comes Mr. Morse with a savory, sensual 80's synth-bass anchored funk/pop jam that's smoother than Billy Dee Williams, when he posed as one of Jabba's prison guards without breaking a sweat, even though you could clearly see he was not, in fact, an overgrown green pygmy. Now that's smooth; for a point of reference that doesn't involve Star Wars, think Old Spice guy, Prince, Connery's Bond, or that djpretzel chap I've heard tell about. Yeah. This is masterful theme integration; though 'Special Stage' makes up the majority of the groove, there's 'Green Hill,' 'Spring Yard', and 'Labyrinth' in here too, and they all flow together in a slick funk soup, tweaked, titillated, & transposed into a seamless, seductive serenade. Alliteration. There are breaks, segues, a delicious synth bass slide, and the blend of piano, EP, bells, guitar, and warm, resonant synth leads is unassailable; even the separation & panning is dynamic & professional but also interesting. I like what JM did specifically with the tail end of the 'Special Stage' melody; descending further on those three or four notes changes the whole phrase in a memorable & worthwhile way. It's the type of idea where, if I had it, I know I'd be happy with it - it's not the number of notes you change, it's which ones, and how, and the spaces you introduce between them, and this mix does an excellent, surgical-yet-soulful job in that regard. And, oh yeah, there's falsetto male vocal jammage done well; something of a novelty, but works impeccably for this style. A standout even among Morse's consistently polished arrangements, and yet another Chaos Emerald in Sound of Speed's jeweled crown!
