This soundtrack and the outtakes from the soundtrack for "La Puce de Niege" are surprises I'd only heard here at the FMA. The FMA makes me love artists I already love even more. Ergo Phizmiz creates intriguing soundtracks that lead the imagination down wild paths. Another brilliant one here. Loving it.
