3. Marvel Vs Capcom 2 : Cave Stage – The pearlescent jewel of Marvel vs. Capcom 2, with no shred of doubt, lies in the soundtrack’s use of dive-bar-open-mic-amateur-hour largesse. Every successive number turns its once-jovial patrons gentle mockery into a clamoring Mephistophelian Bronx cheer. Its dented saxophone, its directionless, garbled marimba all hit a startling plateau as Cave Stage re-imagines Jean Auel’s Clan Of The Cave Bear with Carly Simon adrift on ice sheets and yammering to a disembodied, upside-down, two-foot mystic. Simon’s consummate forte of howling through apartment windows is usurped by stalactites and muscled, costumed deformities.
