From Chuck None: "A lot of things happened on this album that weren’t initially intended, such as adding a vocal outro to Zelda’s Lullaby (voiced by Nekoshima) or adding a swing section to Kirby’s Dreamland because I randomly got into swing/big band music while working on it. All of the band sections, guitar, and basslines on the album were all played by me and done from scratch – my favourite section to write was the MEGALOVANIA rhythm riff which is now one of my favorite riffs to play on my guitar."
