Whoa, it's jazz metal! Not just any jazz metal, fucking awesome jazz metal!
Koji Kondo Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
A lot of this game's soundtrack doesn't really sound like Mario music, and it really sounds like there was a good effort taken to make this game's soundtrack feel special. In any case, it's really great; I especially love the innocent yet suitably "tribal" sound of the game's title theme, the mysterious cave music, the surprising final boss theme, and the quite beautiful credits theme. Some of the best stuff on 16 bit hardware!
Nobuo Uematsu Final Fantasy VII: Original Soundtrack
It really shows how great Nobuo Uematsu is that this isn't even his best score, yet it's still worthy of a 5.
Nobuo Uematsu Final Fantasy VI: Original Soundtrack
People often talk about how Final Fantasy VII has one of the greatest video game soundtracks ever. Hell, I distinctly remember it being voted as having the best game soundtrack of all time on a show on G4 around ten or so years ago. But this stuff is, quite simply, Nobuo Uematsu's finest work. I especially love how the overworld and airship themes match their respective worlds. In the World of Balance, the overworld theme reflects perseverance as the Returners do battle against the Empire.

Voivod The Outer Limits
The Outer Limits is Voivod's return to having a bit of an aggressive edge to their music.

But just listening to the introduction to Fix My Heart, you know they were trying to be a bit more hard-edged. Whatever wider things you want to say about this album's aggressiveness or whatever don't really matter as much as the fact that this is another solid release from Voivod. Most of these songs are just pretty good, with Fix My Heart being

  • ExplosiveOranges I have confidence that you'll get better at reviewing. You just gotta rush less and focus more on flow and the overall album as opposed to a track-by-track. Good luck.

  • ExplosiveOranges Eh, you'll eventually find a unique way of reviewing things. You're fairly new to the site, so try to take constructive criticism in a positive way. Track-by-tracks are pretty much a no-no on this site, so you need to find a new way around reviewing albums. I think you can do it, though.

  • ExplosiveOranges Are you going to review the new Slayer album when it comes out? I think you'd do a great job on it.

  • ExplosiveOranges Slayer really did start to falter after Divine Intervention and Undisputed Attitude. God Hates Us All was meh, Christ Illusion was alright, and World Painted Blood was surprisingly good.

  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, I just read your soundoff. Even that seems awfully kind to such a poor album. Then again, though, maybe it's just that I myself get really ranty when I talk about albums I despise.
