Like The Wind

2/29/2012 Update: Nights and I screwed up the folder name on the Alex Kidd Complete Album. It's tagged correctly, but the folder name is not. Will fix this in the next release.

Glory Days

2/11/2012 Update: Adam caught a vocal track in Wangan 4 that was missing a composer. I've updated that track along with the M3U and SFV and you can find the fixed files here. I also created a new "Updates" category on the sidebar that will help people find updates to releases we make. The archive torrents are still the best way to get all the updated and fixed files.

It's the first release of 2012! Prepare to get bodied by 14 albums including another edition of more stuff we should've released last year.

First up is the Armored Core V Original Soundtrack with music by Kota Hoshino, Yoshikazu Takayama, Tsukasa Saitoh, and Hideyuki Eto. Following that is BlazBlue in L.A. Vocal Editon with music from the original game by Daisuke Ishiwatari but now with all new vocals! Vocalists include Jamison Boaz, Greg Reynard, Dale Paris Sanchez, N.I.N.A., and Jason C. Miller. Next is the Chaos Code Original Soundtrack composed by MintJam, nekono, Kou, -45, and Cheng. Cyber Troopers ''Virtual-On'' Original Sound Track is a reprint of the original album by Kentaro Koyama with an all new arrangement from [H]. We also got more SEGA music with the Gunblade NY & L.A. Machineguns Original Soundtrack.

Motoi Sakuraba is back again with the recent Labyrinth no Kanata Original Soundtrack. Mega Drive Last Action Heroes contains music from classic games Pulseman, Virtua Racing, Ristar, plus Comix Zone and features the music of Junichi Masuda, Takenobu Mitsuyoshi, Tomoko Sasaki, Naofumi Hataya, and Howard Drossin. Gambling addicts will be happy to hear that Pachi-Slot biohazard Original Soundtrack is available with music from Satoshi Ise.

The SEGA music love continues with the Rad Mobile Original Soundtrack and SEGA Sound Unit [H.] 1st Album. This album from [H]. features some great arrangements from classic SEGA games After Burner, Virtual-On, Outrun, Burning Rangers, and more. We follow up that with the awesome Sonic Generations Original Soundtrack Blue Blur. Jun Senoue is back again along with Naofumi Hataya, Richard Jacques, Tomoya Ohtani, Cash Cash, and others.

Wrapping up this release is the Soulcalibur V Original Soundtrack. Andrew Aversa, Cris Velasco, Hiroki Kikuta, Inon Zur, and Tomoki Miyoshi join Junichi Nakatsuru for a fresh take on this series. We also have the Symphonic Odysseys Tribute to Nobuo Uematsu showcasing the WDR Rundfunkorchester Köln and WDR Rundfunkchor Köln. Finally, it's the Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 4 Original Soundtrack with the one and only Yuzo Koshiro.

Just a quick note that going forward we will be utilizing the Album Artist tag on all of our releases. Previously we left this tag null, but after meeting with the team it was decided that this would be useful for various portable music devices and so forth. So Album Artist will equal Artist except when there is more than one. In which case the Album Artist tag gets populated to "Various Artists". In the spirit of election season, I created an unscientific poll to provide your thoughts on the sidebar. However please feel free to leave any additional feedback you have in the comments below.
