ok, i get it. i get why so many people back in undergrad worked out to naruto music, or made wushu demo mixes mainly with shippuden stuff. definitely good pump up music and makes you feel like you can take on the world. music really does make a difference and ramps up the epicness of stuff.
also noticed the composer really likes electric guitar riffs, syncopation up the wazoo, and woodwinds (especially flutes)/strings with soaring melodies juxtaposed or right after an intense beat section.
