Why it’s so good...
A lot of Ozma fans don't really get behind this album for some reason. Maybe it's because they tried to write less playful emo rock.
Whatever it is, I think this album is exceptional, especially for Ozma.
I think it's cause it's got a little bit of everything. From funky harmonies to sappy love songs to college age ballads to face-melting guitar solos- it's all here.
You've also got two old-school Ozma songs that finally found themselves on albums in "Eponine"- easily one of the most epic songs ever written (have you heard that buildup?!)- and "Game Over"- classic Ozma with heavy synth, rocking guitar, and an overwhelming presence of Nintendo references.
I think I just love this album because it's a band I knew and loved and respected that was trying to do something bigger. Something more than they were expected.
Light years will burn, but I will still turn up the volume when this album comes on.
