The music sends the listener straight into a happy computer universe where 16-bit is the dominant technology. Sakaris mixes breathlessly playful pop with mournful and pessimistic lyrics as if the Super Nintendo characters have left their adventurous worlds and have been struck by everyday reality and its problems, but have somehow kept the soundtrack music. Impatient, ironic, bright and nostalgic.
