Sonic the Hedgehog 2 - Mystic Cave Zone

Alright, I haven't posted in a long time so here's a new song! This song was composed by Masato Nakamura for Sonic the Hedgehog 2. The guy really know how to use the bass to create a really catchy and groovy beat. It's also remarkable all the different sound he mixes together and how he still gets this really cohesive sound out of it in the end.

I wish they would stick to this kind of music for future sonic games but they switched to this punk rock  sound since Sonic adventure. Don't get me wrong, I mostly enjoy the new soundtracks (some of those songs might actually end up here eventually) but I just find that the Genesis Sonic soundtrack represent the series better. Then again, with the gameplay change, it's a bit harder to say.

Final Fantasy VII - Anxious heart

Sorry to put yet another FF7 song so closely to another one but I was listening to this today and thought I'd put it up here. It is a bit moody but it really well written. Bravo Nobuo Uematsu(composer of this song)!

Battlefield 1942 - Main Theme

I was just playing the beta of Battlefield 3 and it brought me back some memories of this masterpiece. Damn I feel like playing this again now... BF1942 was such a great fps! Of course, Battlefield 2 and Bad company are also great games but I just prefer the WWII era over this modern era fad.

Final Fantasy VII - The Nightmare's Beginning

My blog views have been ranking up for some reason lately and so I'll try to continue on this trend. I'm considering posting video's of myself playing video game songs on the guitar with each piece that I present to add a little bit more content to the blog. I think it would be a fun thing to add. I might try this next month if I have the time.

Anyways, more FFVII!

Donkey Kong Country - Fear Factory

I guess I'm in an electronica mood lately. Make sure to also check the remix they made for Donkey Kong Country Returns:

Unreal Tournament - Phantom

Oh yeah! Good old Unreal Tournament electronica music. Subsequent soundtracks for UT2k3, 2k4 and III are really bad compared to what they made back in the days. If they ever make a new one, they better have crazy ass music like this! Unfortunately, according to Epic (the UT development team) there currently are no plans to make a new one.
