Rhythm Encounter 35 – Music of the Year 2015 – Final Movement

Music of the Year 2015 comes to a close with a third and final special edition of Rhythm Encounter! If you’ve been dying to know what Stephen, Mike, and I thought was some of the best music of the year, look no further than this humble episode. We’ve got a little something for everyone and a whole lot of love to heap on some awesome music. Even though Music of the Year 2015 may be over, you can always go back to check out any of our features with the click of a button. And 2016 is just getting started! With some highly anticipated games on the way, rest assured that we will have plenty of cool, new music to talk about over the next 12 months.

We’ve got picks from some of the biggest games of the year, as well as indie gems and new arrangements of some classic themes, so tune in and enjoy! Also, be sure to check out the full tracklist with links to reviews/places to buy below! Once again, this finale episode features a host of bonus music played in the background, and while we don’t discuss them during the episode, we listed each of these songs in a bonus tracklist to identify what’s what.
