UPDATE 4-8-13

New Albums added to the list today!

Kid Icarus: Uprising OST
 An absolute gem, I got it used (like new) for $34.99!  Totally exceeded my expectations!

Final Fantasy Best Collection Vol. 1
Fantastic CD of arranged music from FF I-VI!
I had the other EtlanZ FF Albums for years, but this one always Eluded me.  

I'm an Ys music completist, and I've been after this CD for a long time.
It comes with the Urusei Yatsura PC Engine game, and though incomplete, 
it's the only CD Hudson made that has the Ys I-III TG16 music. Maybe they figured everyone was listening to the Redbook Audio on the game discs anyway!  

Family Computer Best Collection Volume 2
I need to get Volume one.  These are so cool!  Arranged NES tunes 
in a high quality midi style.  Rules!

Family Computer Best Collection Volume 3
Amazing collection of arranged Famicom tunes!  Can't 
believe I waited so long to get this!  It's amazing.

Total Albums Now 773!

See you next time!

UPDATE 3-28-13

New Albums:

 Etrian Odyssey IV
 Quite possibly the finest work by Yuzo Koshiro to date!

Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 4
Absolutely amazing!  Mr. Koshiro offers another Maximum Tune Soundtrack that is mindblowing!

We are ROCK-MEN! 2
The second album from Rock-Men! brings more fantastic Megaman music Rock Arrangements!  I like their first album more but this one has more variety in musical styles.

  Rock Buster Megaman Arrange Album
Some Electronic and Rock arrangements from Megaman's series by Colis Postal!  Great Version of Zero's Theme here too!

Namco Game Sound Express Vol. 4 Dragon Saber
 Finally got this! Been after it for years.  The Dragon Spirit and Saber music by Shinji Hosoe has been an inspiration to me since I was very little.  Thanks Surugaya-a-too!

 Flourish - Seiken Densetsu 2 Arrange Album
WONDERFUL!  This album is the Seiken Densetsu 2 / Secret of Mana Arrange Album you've always wanted!  I reviewed it on my regular blog and you can listen to three tracks from it as well!

 Chrono Trigger Orchestra Extra
Short, but oh so sweet!  Waiting for the day the entire Chrono Trigger Soundtrack is performed by an Orchestra, like the Dragon Quest Games.

Twilight Symphony
The phenomenal Orchestrated album of The Legend of Zelda - Twilight Princess presented by ZREO!

Sonic 4 Episode I & II
I am so pleased to see how much the music here was inspired by the original Sonic Games!  Now that I got this I can finally play Sonic 4!

Sonic CD
The Sonic CD Soundtrack became legendary to me, however, we need to see a release featuring the U.S. Version music by Spencer Nilsen.  It holds up just as well, especially the opening theme.

 Ys II Music Arrange
Most of the Ys II score is presented here, and they took great care to allow the pieces to really resonate by lengthening the tracks.  They don't deviate too much from the original music except in some of the intros for the tracks, but the high quality midi sound is great to listen to!

The Following Digital Albums were added to the list today:

Milky Way Wishes
From OC Remix! Just got it, gonna listen today! 

Chip Music Heroes
  AWESOME!  The next generation of Chiptune musicians begins here!

Holy Whiplash
Chiptune + Metal + Castlevania I & II = EPIC VAMPIRE KILLING!

Night Animals by Bright Primate
This is the first Album by Bright Primate I have gotten, and it's really inspiring to me!  It will transport you into a new digital world.  Can't wait to get their other works.

Megaman 3 Remade
WOW!  I need a way to play Megaman 3 with this version of the music, it would totally add some replay value to something I've played countless times already! 

No Phoenix Down Can Save You Now
The World is Square has your acoustic Final Fantasy covered on this Album.  Fantastic guitar work here! 

Fairy Bloom Freesia & ETHER VAPOR Remaster Double Album
Haven't finished listening to this entire album yet, because it's so awesome I have to hear the same tracks over and over.  Must get into the games now.

Reworks That Matter
Just got it, looking forward to hearing!

 Street Fighter X Megaman
  Street Fighter Themes in the Megaman style.  It is everything I hoped for when I first heard about the project!

Soldner-X 2 Final Soundtrack
Love the first Soldner-X game and it's music!  I don't have a PS3 yet, but I couldn't wait any longer to hear the soundtrack!  It's every bit as awesome as the first one and that makes it RULEMAZING!  Rafael Dyll does not disappoint.

 Total Albums now 784.
