Back-To-School Soundtracks

Wake up! It's the first day of school!

Can't seem to get out of bed? Those lazy summer days keeping you from getting to school on time? Here's a booster for ya: the Mana-Khemia OST. That's right, Gust's latest game (semi-affiliated with the Atelier series) is a great pick-me-up for the morning. Two discs of fun, exciting, bouncy music await you.

Then, after a full day of school, you come home, and you need to relax. Our recommendation? Why not try "Memories Off Piano Collection Part 2"?!? It's a great arranged album from KID, the creators of many a fine graphic adventure (dating sim). According to our reviewer, Neal Chandran, it may be just what the doctor ordered.

Alright, relaxation time is over. Hit the books, my friend, because it's studying time! And what better to accompany your studying than some classical arrangements? For this, we recommend an oldie-but-goodie, the OST / classical arrange album for Rebus (known to Americans as Kartia). Atlus' PlayStation Strategy RPG got overlooked by many, but this two-disc joy may have you wanting to go back to the good ol' days. Damian Thomas, who reviewed the album, certainly misses those days. But too bad, because you have homework to do!

Alright, homework's over, but we better go to bed early so we don't repeat the same mistake as yesterday. To be well-rested, how about another arranged album from Memories Off? In this case, it's the "Orgel Collection." That's right, soothing music-box audio to lull you to sleep.

That's our silly themed update for this week! Get yourself into a good school routine with these albums (three of the four are still available at online shops), and then stop by next week for some more exciting soundtrack reviews.
