I know you've been hearing a lot of it, but I am loving this album. Not much else has been able to get playtime on my iPod since I discovered it. I'm pretty new to OCR, and I wish I had known about the Kickstarter in time to back it.
Highlights for me:
There's Nothing Like Flying - This track always makes me happy. It's hard not to feel like you're flying listening to it. Awesome job DDRKirby.
Aggressive Blue Magic - I love this mix of Strago's theme by halc. Sort of reminds me of drum n bass with the distorted synth sounds. I'm not great with music terminology, I just know I like it!
River of Sine Waves - Muzak and chiptunes collide with a great beat structure. This is going on my geeky dinner party playlist.
On the Run/Tastes Like Victory - I like both of Leitbur's contributions to the first album. Great airy synths and vocals. I had to listen a few times to catch the Returners theme in On the Run, but once I did I thought it was a great arrangement of it.
Now is the Winter - Wonderful jazz mix of the Narshe theme. Jazz is not usually my thing, but I love this one. This one would be on at my dinner party too =)
There's a ton of great orchestral tracks on here too - Ascension of a Madman, Castles in the Sand, De Nuit, and Gestahlian Sonata, to name a few.
Also a few really interesting takes on the source music, like Montana de los Caballos Jovenes and Stone Drum. I love the variety of styles represented on the album - it keeps it from getting boring.
And of course, the Opera remixes did a fantastic job. The Impresario reminds me a lot of Bohemian Rhapsody. Great vocals, great lyrics, very fun to listen to.
Amazing album guys! Keep up the good work!
