Incredibly gorgeous. I am a huge sucker for acoustic albums - the execution, charm and energy in every piece is infectious. How am I supposed to choose a favourite!? Well done, THP! More albums soon, please!
Favorite track: Presentiment/Chrono Trigger (from "Chrono Trigger").
This album is filled with a frenetic energy that I didn't know was possible with such a small handful of instruments. I have a greater appreciation for the banjo and the skill required to play it now because of this album.
Favorite track: Guile's Theme (from "Street Fighter").
