Soundtrack Reviews: Magna Carta, Mario, Zelda
12.20.05 - 12:35 AM

Today's soundtracks update features some really exciting reviews.

First, from reader reviewer and long-time friend of RPGFan "Connary," we have two soundtracks from the Magna Carta series. First is a game that has not yet left Asia, Magna Carta Phantom of Avalanche. This promotional-only one-disc soundtrack is something of a rarity and a marvel to behold. The other is the soundtrack for the game known in Asia as Magna Carta Crimson Stigmata and in the US as Magna Carta: Tears of Blood. This two-disc soundtrack published by the new company "Frontier Works" has a lot to offer as well.

I wrote two soundtrack reviews for some non-Japanese Zelda soundtracks. One is the US soundtrack for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The second is a "Vol. II The Lost Tracks" album published by Nintendo of Europe. The European album is interesting because of its unreleased and remixed tracks, and the US album, while not being a complete soundtrack, does have looped tracks (which the Japanese version lacked). These are treats for sure.

Finally, Damian wrote two reviews. One is the Mario & Zelda Big Band Live CD, an album that broadens the definition of "big band." The other is the soundtrack for Mario Story (the N64 title known in America as Paper Mario). This rarity was published on a small scale by Enterbrain and quickly became hard to find.

Enjoy these reviews, and expect some great stuff in the next few weeks!
