    Universe???
    Plague

    Jesus Christ, on CAOCITAL, Kobayashi really went sicko mode, insaneo style. Nothing else to it. Don't miss the second phase of the song which doesn't really flow well enough to make a dual-phase mix


    I don't remember if I've said any other PS songs had the best intro in the series, but if I did, I was a $%#!ing liar. God what is today why did I allow this to happen

    We have two ties, but I don't see a point in waiting around while there are only 4 of us showing up regularly. The random.org quarters came back heads for Phantasy Star and tails for 2019. Over the Universe (2-2) and Xeno Crisis (2-2) advance!

    Song of Mourning

    I ran a similar bracket to this a couple of years ago. This was the champion. In the other contest I'd mentioned, this was the first song to make it in the field this year. I look forward to seeing the success that this masterpiece of digital fusion will enjoy here

    ...or I would if it weren't against Song of Mourning (new upload btw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AE8-FVSMOQE). This song hits WAY harder than it has any right to. I already loved Horita, obviously, but I have so much more respect for him that he managed to pull this off. He integrated his quirks into the song in ways I never would've expected to work, particularly magical moments like 1:36 and 2:55 and the bells and choirs scattered throughout the song. It has a very poignant and soulful presentation in general. The part that stands out to me the most upon my many relistens as I grew to love it more and more it how it's both gentle and forceful. The drums are simple but constantly push the song forward and give power to the mourning, which helps drive home the theme of never giving up which would be a bit tired otherwise. God I can't rant about every aspect so I'll just end by saying the lyrics are also surprisingly really good too. I hope this wins perhaps more than any other because it's one of those songs that just gets better given repeat exposures

    There aren't many pop songs I like, unless they have very specific I guess R&B vibes to them. I either hate them or they're like a 10/10. This is the latter. Somehow those horribly cheesy lyrics hit. I sometimes tear up at "Bring upon us a new tomorrow" and nothing about that stanza justifies that reaction at all. A lot of it is probably appreciation of the nuance between the relentless main vocals and the understated but not boring or deprived piano and violin during the calmer sections, and how the rhythm of the chorus complements the theme. Or maybe not, it's hard to say what's good about songs like this. For another random pop song that's inexplicably good,

    ya like jazz?
