This weeks live vault performance comes from J-Rocker Tsukiko Amano. Due a new album maybe in 2009, she first came to be noticed outside Japan for the hauntingly powerful “Cho” which was used for the game “Fatal Frame 2″ (Or Project Zero 2 if you live in the UK like me!). Here’s “Ningyou” which is a personal favourite of around the same era. It’s excellent to hear a rock singer really able to give it some welly but stay in tune! This is taken from the excellent “Megu ni Aetara” DVD which will be reviewed later on in the year.
Looooong overdue is the release of the first “Tales of…” arrangement CD. Taking only one song from each game, Motoi Sakuraba will be at the helm since he has steered the series most of the way. Do we think rock jazz or rock anthems or traditional orchestral? I think a mixture… Release date is 27/08/08
