I've listened to two albums so far: Alstroemeria's Cloud 9 and foxfactory's -Chireiden no Oto-. Sometime later once I've gone through all the reitaisai 11 stuff that I want to go through, I'll have a post-reitaisai 11 page with my end thoughts and reviews.
As always, music download links can be found on the doujinstyle's reitaisai 11 thread.
Circle: Alstroemeria Records
Album: CLOUD 9
Genre: Electronic, EDM, Trance, Vocals
Alstroemeria is back with some sweet upbeat trance! Much less EDM this time around compared to his last few albums. It's quite a relief that this album turned out good, as Alstroemeria was headed towards the dark side with all that bad EDM.
I think the non-vocal tracks were much weaker than the vocal tracks in this album and keeps the album from being a 5/5 out of me. The new vocalist, Takanashi Toriko, from track #4 ECCENTRICITY does a fantastic job in this album. Though the track was arranged by a guest, Camellia, I think it may be my favorite track out of the album thus far with the mix of Camellia's style and Toriko's vocals. The other vocal tracks come pretty close though, as the veteran vocalists performed very well for their respective tracks.
This album is definitely worth a listen for fans of alstromeria record's older works and those who are interested in electronic arrangements. Overall the album is just lots of fun to listen to!
Album: Touhou Gensoukai -Chireiden no Oto-
Christian was over in my room when we listened to this album using our UERMs and it was just fantastic. Right after we finished the last track, I told him "5/5 easy and maybe the best reitaisai 11 album" he agreed! The only album that can top Chireiden no Oto for us would be CROW'SCLAW's Caramel Crunch.
Featuring the themes from Subterranean Animism, Yukkie brings us arrangements of popular themes such as Satori Maiden, Nuclear Fusion, Last Remote, etc. The style of the album is very similar to Fuujinroku no Oto in that the album is evenly paced with exciting tracks and relaxing ones inbetween. However in this album, Yukkie has really outdone himself with the arrangements. I feel like they're more creative than ever before, and it's simply impossible for me to pick a favorite track out of the album.
This album is a must-listen for anyone who enjoys Touhou music, but most especially foxfactory fans.
In addition... I found a download link for Shoot Shoot Nitori and have re-uploaded it here. It's... a unique game xD. I lost all of my lives on the second stage unfortunately, where things got a lot more hectic. Seems like when you kill enemies, you collect their weapons and use them. If your weapons get hit a few times, they disappear. As long as you have weapons, Nitori doesn't lose any lives. I'll have to play a bit more later this week.
