go mario! is the s**t!
Okay, this is good for people like my brother, who basically only likes video game music. But I grew up with this music, and I would hum along with the music of the games on my way to school or just playing the game. Its flippin' sweet music, alright. Especially Chrono Trigger. This is a way for people to listen to the music of some of their favorite games without having to play them. LOVE IT!
Perhaps I can add a little clarity to what this album is. This is a collection of songs inspired by the soundtracks from some of the most memorable games in the last two decades. From what I can tell, these are not the original tracks -- which can either be found in other albums, or elsewhere*. However, anyone who appreciates a video game soundtracks will at least want to preview this collection: for it is truly amusing to see how other artists responded to well known pieces. Many of the remixers are either the original artists, or other well established composers taking joy rides with their peers' pieces.
If you are looking for the originals that you know and love, you will find them in what other listeners have bought.
If you want a rather obscure album of delightful reimaginations, this is worth the $10.
(Personally, I would have only given it 4 stars, but I added a fifth since it seems to be getting a little more hate than it deserves. Honestly.)
