Jun Senoue on The Best of Crush 40: Super Sonic Songs:
Knight of the Wind
For Sonic series, this is the song produced as the main theme song of Sonic and the Black Knight since Sonic Heroes. There is the fact that it was a theme song after a long time and the spirit is sufficient, too. I intended to try to control the repetition feeling through the gradually ongoing changes of the chord progression while using the catchy and simple repeated phrase. I liked this song from the time I made the short version of the original, but there is something overwhelming in the expression of the music added through the strings recording. Even so, in the songs of Crush 40, there are many parts where the bass phrases catch attention, aren’t there? It was the feeling that a new representative song that matches Live & Learn and the like had been made in the milestone of 10 years since Open Your Heart.
