I finally got around to listening to “MEGALOVANIA” by Toby Fox from the Undertale game on Spotify. I know I’m a tad late; but give me a break, I didn’t even know about Undertale until a few months ago–about the same time Deltarune came out.
I’ll probably get in treble for this, but I found the song to be not very note-worthy. And…uh, what’s that blue energy?
BAM! CRASH! BANGBASHSLAM! OOOFCLANGBOOF! Groan.
*I slowly look up from my position on the floor.* “Sans?” (The Undertale skeleton character, not the font.)
“i’ve got a bone to pick with you,” *says the skeleton in the blue jacket* “i’m the only one who makes bad puns around here.”
*I start to stand up.* Hmm, should I try to fight him or reason with him? “No, I can make bad puns too. You’re a video game character, and I’m a book character. It’s totally different.”
“oh. right. guess i’ll be going then.”
“Wait, just like that?”
“meh, why not? besides, i got to pay a visit to the guy who said i was ness.”
*I sigh.* “That’s never going away, is it?”
*Before walking out the door, San’s winks.* “not in this reality.”
Anywho, what I said earlier was a joke. I liked the “MEGALOVANIA” song. I liked it so much I listened to the other soundtrack songs. And guess what? I liked most of them too.
I enjoyed their 8-bit video game tune. I could really hear the EarthBound inspirations. Also, as I listened, I could picture the game’s events (and some you can dance too). I liked how the “MEGALOVANIA” song started out simple and then more and more instruments got added; soon, it was like a full on concert. It’s also impressive how Toby Fox is self-taught when it comes to music (at least according to Wikipedia). Finally, I checked the Toby Fox artist page (on Spotify) to see what else he’d released; I found the soundtrack to Deltarune’s first chapter. I’ll have to give that a listen…but at the rate I’ve been going that might be in the year 3000.
My only problem with the songs: some were too short. Well, yeah, some of them kind of repeated, but what do you expect for video game music–they need to be on a loop.
