One word comes to mind when I listen to “Mage of the Meadow”, and believe me, that’s been quite a few times since its release. That word being, ethereal. MirroredReality presents an almost otherworldly vibe in this song that’s difficult to describe, and that’s far from a bad thing. This one takes me back to playing JRPG’s as a kid, and getting to that obligatory “unfamiliar kingdom” section; its an obvious member of the repeat club-
Bounce (and a lot of similar music) isn’t one of those things I actively search out all the time, but I tend to really enjoy it when I come across it. Iced is a pretty active track that I might still call easy-listening, or dare I say it- “catchy.” Its somewhat simplistic but never gets boring, thanks to the abundance of samples sprinkled on top. And yes, it repeat several times before I even noticed.
MelodyBrony quickly became one of my favorite rock artists in the fandom, and for good reason. He has a knack for genuine, heartfelt lyrics and this song is a shining example of that spirit. The message is something I personally relate with, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who enjoyed the little homage within a certain line. While a little on the short side, the track gets its meaning across without overstaying its welcome; it being that things are still alive and kicking. A deserving member of the repeat-button club
TM has a history of making rather interesting music, and this track is no exception. In fact, its one of those songs that you can’t help but have a goofy grin on the entire way through. Or, at least I couldn’t. Wiscoltsin Marewaukee is a lighthearted and fun listen throughout, and the lively saxophone probably has a lot to do with that. Bouncy and smooth jazzy? Sign me up. The tune begins a little more tame, giving the saxophone an opening spotlight. Shortly, it transitions into the real meat of the beat; keeping up the positive, fun-loving vibe throughout. I love darker themes as much as the next guy, but sometimes a bubbly melody like we have here is just the thing I didn’t know I needed. A well deserved member of the replay club.
