Spread the Word About this Amazing Album
After following the efforts of Play For Japan, the group of people in the game industry who came together to raise money for the Japanese relief effort, I purchased this when it first appeared on iTunes. For some reason it has come and gone and come agin over the last few weeks. Do yourself a favor and get it while the getting is good. This is an amazing album by some of the top composers in the industry. Each and every track is a gem, and this album offers somethig for everyone. It is an eclectic mix with a wide variety of styles, and all in all I can sum it up as brilliant. Any game soundtrack fan should add this to their collection, and even if you are not a game soundtarck fan you will enjoy the multitide of offerings here: everything from j-pop to classical is embraced in this collecion. Get it, and spread the word. You will be doing yourself a favor as well as helping Japanese relief.
Enjoy music, help Japan
Some of the best video game composers in the world have collaborated to create this album dedicated to Japan and to the victims of the Tōhoku region tsunami and earthquake. Having just finished the album, I could not imagine a better set of tracks to be devoted to this cause. Not only do the themes of each piece evoke some of the emotions felt in the wake of the disaster or inspire a look towards a better future, the dedication of the artists to their cause shines through in the soothing or powerful melodies, strong beats, and high production values of each and every track. If I'm not mistaken, and with the exception of Super Mario Medley on Two Pianos, which does add its own lighthearted and appreciated relief near the end of the album, each piece is also an original composition.
Rather than continue to talk about it, though, give it a listen, and remember that a purchase is also a donation to relief efforts in Japan -- all proceeds will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross. I can't recommend it enough.
