This album is kind of a late review, being a Reitaisai 11 release. I couldn't find it anywhere on the web so I had to resort to actually buying it myself.
Secret Messenger is the name of Yuy's current circle. Yuy used to be known as t=node, back when he made touhou arrangements. Yuy has a pretty unique style of music, utilizing seemingly random sounds and instrument notes at times in addition to long buildups and breakdowns. Since working as Secret Messenger and composing his own music, Yuy has been utilizing vocalists in his music. Overall his style is something that you'll either love or hate.
106 attempts and going. Yeeeep. Sloooowly making progress. So frustrating... yet so rewarding. The video shows some footage of my battles with the first four bosses: Reisen, Futo, Nue, and Yuugi. See the Shrine Maiden's thread on the game for more info and details.
Remember this post from a while ago? Yeah, LION HEART released a patch last month that introduced the training mode, combo attack mode, boss rush mode, lunatic boss rush mode, and achievements that unlock artwork.
show me your love is the first album by Syrufit/Poplica, released during Comiket 77, The album features arrangements Syrufit (hiro.na), Poplica (tak-sk), and vocals by Tsubaki Ichimatsu, Mei Ayakura, Nachi Sakaue, and SHIKI. Again, Syrufit and Poplica are two of my favorite doujin circles featuring Electronic, DnB, Trance, EDM, and chillout music.
I tried to upload it onto weebly as a post, but it's a bit too big to fit onto here, and the quality degrades quite a bit when i try to fit it onto here. Anyways, this is a picture that I found from a while ago that has pretty much every Touhou character up to Subterranean Animism!
How many characters can you name?
DDBY is a large doujin circle specializing in making Easy Listening and Jazz original and touhou music. Often times their albums consist of tracks each composed or arranged by a different person. In RelaxTime and RelaxTime 2, this is no different. There is a lot of variety in the two albums due to each person's different style. In addition, the two albums feature DDBY's usual cutesy album artwork, which I'm really fond of.
Overall the two albums are excellent own their own, and are now part of my SleepyTIme playlist! They're both really relaxing to listen to, with RelaxTime having a little more focus on Jazz and a tiny bit of electronic mixed in whereas the RelaxTime 2's tracks have a winter theme as indicated by the album cover and a bit more focus on the piano. It's hard to say which one I prefer, as they're both different from each other and just so enjoyable to listen to when I want to wind down.
5/5 & 5/5 for the both of them.
If you liked them, be sure to check out DDBY's other works such as their Cafe de Touhou series and their Kutsurogi Time series. Download link for some of the albums can be found here.
