3 stars Only a little superfluous.

With the recent release of This is What Happens, apparently The Reign of Kindo had an idea: let's re-release all our music-- in 8-bit-Nintendo-era video game music form! The album basically goes through the entire album as if it were a video game soundtrack, 8-bit drums, guitars and pianos rocking the whole way. Sure, it definitely has a creative element to it, I mean how many bands re-release their albums in 8-bit form?! But, as I mentioned above, all of this is a little superfluous. I really don't want to listen to Thrill of the Fall like it's the theme to Castlevania, I want to listen to Thrill of the fall like it's actually a song! Overall, the music is still fun and enjoyable, just the entire concept of an 8-bit remix is a little odd and outlandish. 3- stars.
