Yuko Komiya: Everlasting Words

This is another song I’ve had queued up for a while. It was fairly straightforward to write about and I think that has to do with me being familiar enough to have an idea of how the song goes, but … Continue reading

Masashi Hamauzu: The Archylte Steppe

When I started doing this one I thought I’d have an easy go with rambling on. In now having just done the writing I feel that that was not quite the case. I think I stumbled a bit as I … Continue reading

Yoshitaka Hirota: ~ICARO AGAIN ~ Advertise II

Once more I wrote quickly. Not sure what I was trying to capture with this one, but I feel I did alright in terms of describing what happens during the song. It sort of feels like the second part of … Continue reading

Yoshitaka Hirota: Prelude~ ~ Advertise I

This was written over one listen. I wrote quickly and tried to capture a sense of the otherwordliness that the song sort of gets across, but I don’t think I did a good job. Yoshitaka Hirota’s (弘田佳孝) “Prelude~ ~ Advertise … Continue reading

The God Machine: The Hunter

Another one that was one listen. This one was quite difficult. I tried writing it earlier today but had a lot of trouble getting started and so I stopped (though the stopping was also due to needing to head out). … Continue reading

Shoji Meguro: Living With Determination

This one was written over three listens. I was trying to get across what I think the song is trying to get across and it didn’t quite work. Probably could’ve done more, but that did not happen, so yeah. Shoji … Continue reading

Hitoshi Sakimoto: Breath of Fire V: Dragon Quarter – Opening Animation

Three listens for this one. This is a brief song and so the writing reflects that. However, I feel that perhaps I could’ve written more. I didn’t aim to capture anything in particular, but in saying that I feel as … Continue reading

Motoi Sakuraba: We Form in Crystals

I’ve wanted to write about this one for a while, but  kept on forgetting about it. It’s an interesting song. Very straightforward in ways, but also carries an air of mystery, so to speak. This was written over one listen. … Continue reading

Yasunori Mitsuda: Chronopolis

Two listens for this one. I wanted to write about this song for a little while, but I probably should’ve done it in the morning when I’d be less tired than I am now. I feel I should’ve given this … Continue reading
