So, has anyone else given a listen to OCR's latest offering? I'm only about six of the total thirty-five tracks in, but they've all been great listens. The happy, feel-good vibe of Party's Over Here (Cranky's Conga) is a track I've listened to exhaustion back when it first debuted on Dwelling of Duels some time ago - but still enjoy listening to, because it's just TOO much fun. Tetanus (Lockjaw's Saga), with its deep, brooding wind instruments, and militaristic percussion brings to mind a sound reminiscent to Hitoshi Sakimoto's. The electronica element adds a nice texture to the piece during the second half. "Simian Soirée" is my personal fave so far, a sweet, breezy jazz version of Klomp's Romp.
I'm especially looking forward to hearing the track that David Wise himself arranged, alongside Kirkhope and Beanland.
