Blaine Cole For me personally, this album offers much to be experienced. The graphics are visually striking and compelling. The tracks offer many different layers to explore. At the same time the music is soothing, I find the sampling of voice tracks to be very thought provoking. A well designed and well executed concept. My congratulations and thanks. Favorite track: Recruits.

Legacy-The Vietnam Files

A second chapter in the VSSR collection, “Legacy” delves into the military conflict known as the Vietnam War. Told through an omniscient perspective, the conceptual journey spans a timeline depicting psychological tactics used in basic training, the chaos of jungle warfare, to the GIs return to the world. Following the formula of the VSSR genre, each track’s soundscape is intended to transport the listener to an alternate realm.
Finding inspiration from organ drones coupled with haunting harmonics of the sakura pentatonic scale, the selection of dusty vinyl, guitar/amp feedback, and layered drums, give life to a retro sound bed of instrumentation. Conceived and produced by the Japan based artist PNTKS, “Legacy” furthers the VSSR design of challenging the listener with expressive and powerful compositions.

レガシー•ベトナムファイル

VSSRコレクションの2作目『レガシー』は軍事衝突として知られるベトナム戦争を深く掘り下げている。全貌を明らかにしたドキュメンタリーの語りを通し、心理的な戦術を基礎トレーニングに利用した事実、混沌としたジャングルでの戦争、G.I.(アメリカ軍隊)の撤退という時系列をコンセプチュアルアルバムで描写。VSSRの音楽はサウンドスケープが聴衆を別世界に導く。
パイプオルガンに加え、マイナーペンタトニックスケールのリピート、古いレコードのセレクション、ギター/アンプのフィードバック、そして幾度も重なったドラム音から想像力を高め、音楽にレトロな雰囲気を吹き込む。日本に拠点を置くアーティストPNTKSが考案しプロデュースする『レガシー』はVSSRコンセプトであるオリジナリティーと迫力ある楽曲をリスナーに届ける。
