This first "complete" album was quite an ambitious one. Part video game score (yeah, I make music albums for games that I haven't even made yet!), part random music album, I wanted to create something that finally reflected my love for such types of music. Taking inspiration from various games and movie scores, I then created this. I took quite a while working with track after track until I finally hit what I wanted to make right on the dot with "Falling Fight". Once I made that, everything started coming together, leading to what we've got here.
The album spans 2 discs - the main tracks being on the first, of course, and a few of the tracks that didn't quite make it. (But I felt were still good enough for your ears!)
For the second disc...
"Clubbing" was a bit of a musical 'doodle'; I felt that it did fit in but I couldn't figure out quite where. It seemed like a good alternate track but I never could place it anywhere so it ended up getting left out.
I had created some extensions and changes to some of the tracks, resulting in "Completion (Extended Cut)" and the alternate version of "Falling Fight". For the former, I thought of a results screen of a video game - you've beaten the level, and you get to the results screen of whatever it is you're playing. For the latter, this was the original version, though I felt for what was intended to be a "final boss" tune, it needed something a bit more added to it. While I loved this track, I equally loved the longer version that I made, so I included this track. I felt these two tracks gave a bit of insight into how the album changed and evolved without killing anyone's ears.
Both of the "Raging Fires" tracks were intended as level music, but I felt it was too much, and compared to the other tracks, and some input from others, this ended up getting knocked off of the list - but I loved it enough to keep it here.
As for the last track, I can't say for sure why I added it - I always love the idea of games with hidden, unused tracks that were left in for some reason, and well... I just liked it, and felt it too deserved a bit of recognition.
