Logan Tucker Got my CD in the mail last week and I haven't been able to listen to anything else. This is the video game cover album the world's been waiting for. The inclusion of keyboards brings a melodic and powerful sound to the mix and bridges the gap between beauty and brutality. Favorite track: The Dark Prophecy (Secret of Mana).

Pokérus Project (Patricio Thielemann) Oh man, what can I say? DoE is the best example of persistence in this VGM world of artists and bands. Tracks like "War of the Magitek" kick my brain every time! :) Favorite track: War of the Magitek (Final Fantasy VI).

John Crichton This album really brings it all to the table. The bass has great chunk, the drums are forceful yet perfectly mixed, and the guitars are all over the place (and I mean that in a good way). The vocals are also wonderfully done, being used sparingly but in such a manner to add the right amount of depth to each track they are used in. You'll easily find yourself loving sets inspired by games you never even played. Favorite track: The Dark Prophecy (Secret of Mana).

Ezekiel Fry D of E has continually put out the best vgm around. This album crushes. Favorite track: Act of Birth and Sacrifice (Actraiser).

Victor Max Vellon DoE kills it in what I feel is their best album to date and had to be supported. A progressive album with amazing gaming medleys. The track chose as a favorite, I can no longer hear this track from anyone and not hear Lepre's harmonizing parts at the select parts of the song where it happens. Favorite track: Shinra Oppression (Final Fantasy VII).

Ami This album is capable of spacing me out and then bringing me back to a determined frenzy. I'm not making any sense. It's just fucking good. Favorite track: Act of Birth and Sacrifice (Actraiser).

Track Name: War of the Magitek (Final Fantasy VI)
(Terra's theme)

The snow falls down
As we march
Into the coal mines of Narshe
the Crown of Slaves
Guides the way
To seize the Esper in ice
Magitek-armored knights
Across the plains
The town awaits
Track Name: Act of Birth and Sacrifice (Actraiser)

Daylight brings the sun
To grant us life
Yet take it away
Generations pass
The birth and the sacrifice

Take this offering
Give us rain
Give us strength to rise
And then
Take this melody
For the ones
Who need a song
To carry on, so we can

Build for our people
Track Name: Stones (Ultima V)
Long ago ran the sun on a folk who had a dream
And the heart and the will and the power:
They moved earth; they carved stone; molded hill and channeled stream
That we might stand on the wide plains of Wiltshire

Now men asked who they were, how they built and wonder why
That they wrought standing stones of such size
What was done beneath our shade?
What was prayed beneath our skies
As we stood on the wide plains of Wiltshire

Oh what secrets we could tell if you'd listen and be still
Rid the stink and the noise from our skirts
But you haven't got the clue and perhaps you never will
Mute we stand on the cold plains of Wiltshire

Still we loom in the mists as the ages roll away
And we say of our folk, "they are here!"
That they built us and they died and you'll not be knowing why
Save we stand on the bare plains of Wiltshire
Track Name: The Dark Prophecy (Secret of Mana)
(The Legend)

Way down
Into the darkness
The legend fades
With time

We know
We need a hero
Who wields the sword
To save us...
