"Like a sudden, powerful strike unleashed by a character from your favorite RPG, the formation of videogame music cover band Critical Hit came much to the surprise of many.
For those just tuning in, Critical Hit is a newly formed game music cover band fronted by World of Warcraft composer Jason Hayes and managed by Michael “Piano Squall” Gluck. Hayes is accompanied by several high-brow musicians that perform a plethora of popular game tunes that span games like Super Mario World, Final Fantasy X and yes, even Angry Birds.
I’m of the opinion that videogame music cover bands will never get old. In fact, the more there are, the merrier. So join me as I go through Critical Hit’s recently-released Volume One track-by-track, analyzing all the musical memories and deducing just how big of a nostalgia multiplier the group has applied to my pulsating heart." - Patrick Kulikowski
