Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2011-11-13
Trippy digital electronics laced with piano. This is most certainly “video game music” (I’m the wrong person to judge since I lost interest in that stuff after Asteroids). Tracks are laced with blips and stuff that computers make, digitized “vocals”, and take on titles that I do recognize as video game/computer titles, references to avatars, the internets, etc. Very digital, very “gamey”, soundtracky, all upbeat and most certainly interesting.

1) (1:57) upbeat near jungle hip shaker, ambience mixed with piano and embellishments CAREFUL : ends with 23 secs left with a six note thing with 5 seconds left
2) (2:13) cool Kraftwerky feel almost, upbeat with near middle eastern tones that become quite proggy
3) (1:49) chill playful electronic wallpaper
4) (2:53) Sim City refs in a minimal digital voice over, simple and video game toned
5) (3:25) cinematic, samples
6) (1:44) a play on major scales, midpaced and swingy
7) (2:39) after a slow buildup an upbeat rhythm appears, all underneath refs to Top Chef and cooking shows etc
8) (2:19) fun beat, beat centered, chill tones, soundtracky
9) (3:51) chill, midway a mellow rhythm appears, pretty
10) (2:25) chill TV soundtracky
11) (3:27) mellow beat
12) (3:08) upbeat distant feel
13) (4:17) very mellow and cinematic w/tymphani and “strings”
14) (1:52) chill and wallpapery
15) (3:31) vaguely exotic, very chill
16) (4:09) Wii sounds, very chill
