    Never heard of most of these artists, can't wait to try them all out! Thanks for sharing the list :) Gonna be great for background music while working. I'll come back with some opinions and feelings after getting some under my belt.

      Methuselah OST | Utopian Ant Colony - Right off the bat, didn't like the sound of it. Kept going through it regardless, since I said I was going to give my opinions on these (and I meant it dammit!). I was however pleasantly surprised to find ambient lo-fi-ish music, reminiscent of Pikuniku. Or at least some of its style. It's not entirely my cup of tea, but I ended up enjoying it more than I thought I would.

      NOT Celeste 2 | Lanis Track DX Mix - I dig this. A lot. I'm a sucker for music like this. It reminds me of a mix of old gameboy music mixed with a slight pokemon vibe? Idk, might just be me. Arpeggiated, rising, lead-rythm is everything I want. It even has a psuedo-breakdown which I appreciate as a metalhead :)

      Haven Soundtrack | Still Free - OOOOOOOOO gimme more of this. I went and favorited the entire album on Spotify halfway through the song. It's a dense ambience, without being overbearing. I think I found a new artist I'm gonna follow. The "siren wail" for lead hearkens to some old trap bangers that I still listen to - think Diplo, RL Grime, Keys n' Krates.

      Cyber Punk Vol. 4 | Pilling in my Head - This is great for concentrating. Solid tempo, keeps at it without changing too many things at once. I can certainly see myself enjoying listening to this for extended periods without paying all that much attention to it.

      The Medium | A Dark Room - Meh. Not my thing 🤷‍♂️

      TOHU | Fish Home - I'm not sure I can adequately describe how I arrive at this, but it sounds like music that was designed specifically for a video game. And, I mean, it is. But that's not exactly what I mean. Like, the music has no aim other than to be the background noise for a more important piece of your attention. It's not unpleasant by any means; but I prefer music that's supposed to be the center of your attention.

      More coming..... eventually

        If you like the Haven soundtrack definitely check out the soundtrack for Furi as well, the previous game from the same developer. The entire Furi soundtrack isn't by Danger (Haven is), but it's an excellent soundtrack overall, one of my favorites.

    Also, I definitely did a double take when I saw the cover art featuring Celeste 2. Good to know that their writer knows exactly the kind of feeling that evokes:

    Okay, settle down now, it’s not a true sequel to Celeste
