Is that headline obnoxious? Good, good, just making sure.
Look, I have to make this blog post terrible, because the episode it encloses is so good. Is it the best Retronauts ever? I’m afraid I can’t make that call! But it could well be my favorite Retronauts ever. Certainly it took longer to assemble than any other episode ever — probably about 10 hours for editing alone. That’s really quite a lot of time. Maybe I’m just tricking myself into liking it to justify the time investment. I don’t even know anymore.
It was worth it, though! There’s a whole lot of music in this episode, and I know you like music. Good music, anyway. Also, we have a new cover artist: Nick Daniel, who is talented. His illustrations will make this show look a lot nicer than my pitiful chicken scratches did. Everything’s looking up.
Anyway, Nobuo Uematsu wrote a lot of great music (still does, in fact!) and you should totally listen to this episode, wherein Bob and I gush about video game tunes for more than two hours, with Chris Kohler and Kat Bailey singing the countermelody. It’s neat. I think you’ll enjoy it.
Jeremy and Bob spend a couple of hours musing about music with Chris Kohler and Kat Bailey. Specifically, the music of Nobuo Uematsu. Stay a while and listen! No, wait, wrong RPG series.
