In celebration of Epic Mickey’s sequel being announced, let’s have some music from the original this week. Also, my thoughts on the sequel’s announcement will be coming in this Friday’s weekly recap.
I’ve always loved Disney, especially when it comes to the music. The vast majority of their pieces end up fitting the situation perfectly and The Phantom Blot does not disappoint. I forget exactly when the track plays, but it seems to be a variation of the boss theme during the Blot fight atop Mickeyjunk Mountain. Either way, there’s an amazing sense of hopelessness invoked when you listen to this.
Surprisingly, even with the heavy, ‘dark’ sounds, there’s still a familiar Disney-esque twinkling to the music. It’s most noticeable toward the very beginning, like a final little sparkle of hope that dies out when the heavier sounds come in. All I can say is that I hope the sequel has music of this quality.
Unfortunately this post is going to be a bit short because I’m absolutely swamped with other things. So apologies for that, but I should have some fairly exciting news in the coming weeks. Anyway, as always, thanks for reading and have a good’un.
