Poesy Rider Plus qu'une confirmation du premier album (qui était déjà vraiment bon), un grand pas en avant, avec plus de diversité dans les styles de jazz invoqués. Une réussite ! Favorite track: The Chocobo Theme (From "Final Fantasy").

JayTheSoundHound I'm normally a sax guy, but the trombones are so swanky on Spring Yard Zone. Still alive is such a killer track too. This album has absolutely pumped me up in a way that's hard to describe in words. The raw passion and talent on display, mate it's off the charts! Stop reading and buy a copy already, my god! I hope this ends up on CD or Vinyl some day, I'd love to play this from a record for my mom to enjoy. If you know somebody who says video game music "isn't real music" show them this. Favorite track: Spring Yard Zone (From "Sonic the Hedgehog").
