I’ve stumbled upon Circle of Fifth at one time, and my gad, aren’t those tracks just nice to listen to? (The album includes his past compositions, but I’ll just talk about the original/vocal arrange tracks). I mean, the genre generally just range from rock to pop rock - not that diverse - but I always enjoy music composed by Orito . Not to mention Ayaka Kitazawa, while not being a Lia (she’s on a completely different level), has this really charming voice that I always enjoy.
BTW, does anyone here has a translation of Last Word, because that track is just really nice and (arguably) my favorite in this album but I can’t seem to find a translation of its lyrics. :((
EDIT: I just realized that the stuff from his past works are actually arrangements/remastered versions in this album omg. As in, there’s a Torch arranged in rock! Yes, that one cheery pop song used as the ending theme of Clannad After Story, and that exact ending theme that loves throwing people off-guard after a painfully sad moment! ;u;
Not exactly produced by KSL, but they’re covers of KSL songs anyway, so lemme talk about this one. Mygad how I love Mintjam’s Vivid Colors, his Key Tribute Album. They have an interesting take on Key songs, and I especially like their take on Light Colors! And I may as well extend this appreciation to, while not part of the album, their vocal cover of Philosophyz (it’s arranged by them in the first place :P) because I actually loved their cover as much as I loved the one sung by Runa Mizutani (aka the one used as Rewrite OP).
Okay, this is going to be the last section of this post, but don’t you think that the Field Trip OST (aka Refrain spoilers that music used when you try to save your classmates from an impending bus explosion) from Little Busters is just super intense?? It seems like it’s not really found in the LB OST album (makes it safe to share a YT vid of it here). But I’d like to share this one because I generally liked it:
