[005] Reminiscence

About: All the tracks in this episode are titled “Reminiscence.’ There are many video game tracks with this song title and they’re usually heard during emotional points in a story or when a character is silently reflecting on a past moment. There is either a sadness or sombre peacefulness surrounding these themes and melodies. However, some of the themes may just surprise you with a punch of upbeat ferocity too.
