In addition to amazing music & nostalgic artwork, one thing I personally love about Super Mario RPG: Window to the Stars is all the creative track titles, embracing the game's kinda goofy, playful tone that's also reflected in the original source tune names. WillRock rocks some SynthRock and solos hard as he battles the... cake. He writes:
"I did a thing."
Indeed you did, sir. A good thing. Let's turn to album co-director DaMonz for a lengthier commentary:
"WillRock, the absolute madman and master of synth lead handling. This arrangement is yet another amazing addition to his history of blazing synths and crazy melodies. I love how Will handled the switching between original writing and source usage throughout the track, which makes for a fresh and exciting take on the source material. This is a high-energy piece of total pwnage that is most certainly more than somewhat delicious!"
Agreed; the cake might require the "somewhat" qualifier, but Will's synth hero noodling does not - FULLY delicious, I'd say. This has a prog/fusion feel to it with all the transitions & modulations, bundling in a lot of arrangement ideas and original glue in a creative explosion. If you listen straight through, it makes complete sense, but if you skip around randomly a bit, you'll see just how much things are changing. While less directly ebullient, this is every bit as playful as Timmie's opening flood mix, and makes excellent use of Will's solo writing strengths, with some fifth-lead action & a generally retro aesthetic, incorporating both 70s & 80s ingredients and baking in the oven at 450° ;) Great stuff and another standout ReMix on Window to the Stars!
