Contrary to Reogan's belief I am in fact, not dead yet. I have returned this time on a Friday to bring you Song of the Week 8 (my .5 feature is going to take a break for a bit as I work through my schedule). It's from Donkey Kong Country, and the very first mix of Johan Krafft (from Sweden). This has to be in my top 5 favorite songs, it just comes together so nice. I can't get over the fact this was all made in Sonar. The source is perfect, the piano is awesome, and that synth is perfect for it's role. The expansion from 1:55 to 2:00 is chilling as the bass is brought in afterwords to create a really awesome piece. It's simple, yet it's complex, really cool stuff. The jungle noises near the end are sort of interesting and it changes it a bit (dang I feel like I'm just copying djpretzel's review). Overall it's just a really cool piece with the perfect source tune. If you're going to listen to any of my song of the week posts from this point on, I reccomend this one first. Love it.
