That Old O-Life Album

Never been a fan of vocal music, although I do agree that they can be great. Am actually quite a fan of old Rock pieces, but it still feels awkward to listen to vocal music willingly. So I stick with instrumental, most of the time.

Nowadays, it’s a need provided by Touhou arranges, which is ridiculously numerous in all kinds and genres imaginable. This one Folk/Native/Somethin’ rendition of the 11th game’s musics is brilliant. It’s very upbeat, joyfull, sometimes almost bettle-like, and truly unique. No other album sounds anything like it.

Figure out all of what the original is myself. Sometimes it wasn’t easy. 05 and 09 were difficult to pick out. The arrangement’s that brilliant. I swear, that must be a gamelan or angklung or something in track 08.
