Today we’re doing a review on The Tsunami Effect’s OST, which will be available on November 1st, 2009. Already a listener and had reviewed his first album Star Ship 54 under VGTO! Reviews, I was in high anticipation when news struck me that he was releasing a new album. For those who haven’t heard his first album, take a stroll by his myspace and download it for FREE (don’t you love that word).
The album contains 25 tracks with the addition of a pretty cool cover. I won’t tell you what that cover is, you’ll have to hear it yourself. True to the name, the album is set as if it were a literal OST. Each track has a name that tells a story that could possibly happening. You have tracks like “Timeless Battle” that goes to “Peace, At Last”, and then “New Day Ahead”. That’s a cool concept that I’ve seen before, but hasn’t and probably won’t ever get old for me.
I hope you like trance, electronic, ambient music, because this is the order of the bill, one in which is welcomed with a warm, open embrace. The album is crafted with such elegance that I find myself really enjoying a tune and having it go through repeat. The best part of that is I sometimes lose myself in the music and forget when a track repeats, keeping the track living on. Some personal favorite tracks are “The Ocean Blue”, “EX-P (The Rebellions Move)”, and “Infiltration”.
I don’t listen to trance or electronic music on a normal basis, so I don’t have any repertoires that I could compare or recommend that bares a resemblance to this album. You’ll have to do that homework on your own. OST was definitely a treat to listen to and one of the better trance/electronic/ambient albums I have heard this year, a must download if you are a fan in those genres.
