VGM of the Week #29

It's that time again. I've got a nice little ditty for you; from Sonic Colors, it's Aquarium Park, Act 1.

All the tracks in Sonic Colors are pretty stellar (see what I did there?) but Aquarium Park really sticks out to me. It manages to be so peaceful and serene and, dare I say it, beautiful, even with a speedy, thumping techno beat. That's no easy feat, but it's pulled off with real panache here. The way this track is arranged actually reminds me a lot of Soichi Terada, one of my favorite video game composers.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this soothing melody as much as I do. I promise next time I'll pick a song from a non-Nintendo console.
