For those of you who aren’t aware, Banjo Land is a world in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts that is basically one gargantuan museum. It’s a conglomerate of the best things in Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie all combined into a single level. It’s a world that tugs on the heart strings of the Banjo fans of old with its many nostalgic induced artifacts and most importantly, its music.
Grant Kirkhope has created what has to be the most fantastical mash-up of songs in video games. The Banjo Land theme combines some of the greatest songs in the franchise’s history and syncs them all together in perfect harmony. I can’t help but think of it as Grant’s swan song; the last great piece of music to be delivered by who has been Rare’s most well-known and talked about musician in its thirty-year history. And Banjo Land is, in my most humble opinion, his greatest song yet.
Without further adieu, here is the Banjo Land theme embedded for your convenience. You’re welcome :)
