There’s something I love about a lot of Japanese music, and I may have already said this: it focuses very much on a strong melody. To this end, they tend to be quite catchy, and this tune is certainly no slouch in that department! Unless you’ve played Metal Slug 5, you may not have heard this track before: it continues on from Tanaka’s work on Metal Slug 4, what with its driving beat and the call and response between the old-fashioned, twangy guitars, and the saxophones. Yay video games!
