what makes shoji meguro's music awesome to you?

#1private400Posted 4/9/2012 5:11:42 AM
for me it is the diversity of instruments and genre he uses
switching from epic electronic + opera ( the battle for everyone's soul) to epic guitar play (the almighty) to lounge music (heaven).

it doesn't matter what tools you give him, he turns them into eargasms

hell , i think if you only gave him 3 guys with banjo's he could turn them into an awesome boss battle track.

I don't really care for most of his works outside of Digital Devil Saga.

The drums and the hidden instruments you only hear with headphones.

He also composes top notch songs. There's a reason he is called one of the 'kami' in Japan

That's pretty reasonable. Most of his work lacks variety, I think. DDS, Strange Journey and Raidou are probably his high points and Nocturne would probably be higher if it wasn't for the annoying shouts in the battle themes.

I actually thought those were a nice touch.

Tendency to call people with jaw dropping talent-kami. The terms become more like an adjective really. KamiGame, KamiMusic, etc.. It's almost scary; meguro is improving by the day. His one of the most notable work, the theme for velvet room, was composed over 10 years ago, before he even applied to atlus.
All of his works overall are top notch in quality, varying from pop, jazz, rock, funk, but strangely holds the unique style that makes it 'meguro quality'.
The hype at one point was even enough to start a religion of him. Anyways, he is one of the famous ones in those fields.

yeah about that i have to ask,
was aria of the soul ever put on radio or cd 10 years ago ?
i ask because i know old people that have never even played a videogame in their life much less a jrpg, but they all swear that they heard that song before

or is this just a very crazy coincidence ?
