Anamanaguchi - Dawn Metropolis

8-bit rock music that is more rock than video game is exactly what many of this style are lacking. Utilizing live instrumentation always helps out any bands game especially here. This has been a favorite of my son's for awhile now and reason being is its just damn fun. The first half of this album is front loaded with some really great songs and as for the second half.....well lets just say they are lucky to have a few "continues" under their belt.  Problem being is when they try to act like they are writing music for a video game soundtrack they fell victim to copy cat-er-ing. This is rock music with a pumping 8-bit heart not the other way around. Chances are high though that people normally scared off by those classic bleeps and bloops.
