Another thing I'm really getting into are soundtracks.
I started listening more watching films, because you can find some really great music inside them. But movies are not the only source for soundtracks.
You know, japanese people, together with other billions things, are very good in making videogames. Well, they are equally good in making videogames soundtracks.
I think this is one of the best examples.
The game is just FANTASTIC: settled in the future, you are part of a crew of writers that use magnetic rollerblades that can grind on EVERYTHING for move themselves. In this cel-shading world, you have to do mainly two things: GRAFFITI and escape from police.
Now, what's the best music for getting away from these policemen? Surely are GREAT HYPER ELECTRONIC JAP-FUNKY BOUNCY BEATS. No alternatives. Really, there's nothing better, try if you can.
Well, inside you can find also some rock tracks, probably from the NTSC version. But the real concept is the one explained above.
WARNING: you may really enjoy yourself A LOT listening to this music. Pay attention if you want to remain sad.
A little preview for you
