Cohesively its pretty great but its a soundtrack so I won’t be listening to it a whole lot. Plus there are so many tracks which makes it quite hard to revisit. Its really cool that FlyLo did a soundtrack like this but compared to his other work, this is just good.

Fav tracks: Black Gold (fav), Kurosaka Strikes!, Your Day Off, Mind Flight, Survivors

Least fav track: ?
