February Songaday Day Six

EGO DAY SIX: Metal Gear Solid - The Best Is Yet To Come
I...have mixed feelings about Metal Gear Solid as a series of games. On the story side, it's just wildly absurd and bizarre, especially by MGS4, and it's full of sickeningly long cutscenes, but at the same time it's interesting and enthralling, and a good spy story (up until MGS4 - 4 is just ridiculous). On the gameplay side, it's highly in depth, especially by 4 (and Peace Walker just perfects that formula), but I really struggle with the controls for some reason. Some day I'll adapt and love that side too.
The MUSIC, though, I can't fault that. The music is pretty damn solid (... :| ) the whole way through. The 20th Anniversary album is spot on. Calling To The Night, The World Needs Only One Big Boss!, Zanzibar Breeze, Snake Eater, and of course The Best Is Yet To Come. Ordinarily, I'd pick The World Needs Only One Big Boss!, but this one is kinda sticking with me today, so here it is.
Sung by Aoife Ni Fhearraigh, The Best Is Yet To Come was the credits theme of MGS1 and MGS: Twin Snakes (the MGS1 remake). It also plays in MGS4 while traversing Shadow Moses Island again.
So yes, I recommend the entire Metal Gear Solid 20th Anniversary: Metal Gear Music Collection. It's totally worth it.

BRO DAY SIX: Johnny Cash - God's Gonna Cut You Down
Well, Bro decided to easy today and use a simple standby we've been holding for a day when we can't think of anything. Don't feel the need to recite Johnny Cash's story tonight. Don't really have any links either. Sorry.
End Recording,
