Prescription for Sleep: Lullabies of Mana Review
Find yourself awash in a sea of soothing tunes.
12.07.15 - 8:11 PM

Most of the time, saying a collection of music "put you to sleep" is anything but a compliment, but that's the intended goal of Scarlet Moon Records' Prescription for Sleep series. The first two volumes released in May 2014 and April 2015, respectively, with reviews linked below each offered a collection of songs that were largely from RPGs, and offered soothing takes on classic songs designed to allow one to relax.

Released just last week, Prescription for Sleep: Lullabies of Mana continues the series' tradition, but instead of representing several series, the album exclusively features arrangements from Secret of Mana (or Seiken Densetsu 2 in Japan).

For me, it's usually hard to go wrong with Hiroki Kikuta music, but I didn't review this (you can tell because it's not 4000 rambling words)! Give Davi's review a read for his thoughts on Lullabies of Mana, and speculate with us about what the next Prescription for Sleep album may hold.
