Rhythm Encounter 60 – The Lost Years

Rhythm Encounter 060 The Lost Years

Every year we get introduced to new games and new music. The ever-growing bounty of RPG music out there has grown quite a bit, with 2020 alone giving us amazing soundtracks like Final Fantasy VII Remake, Haven, Paradise Killer, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, and more. And while we’ve been enjoying introducing music to people again on Rhythm Encounter since our return, we couldn’t ignore the music we weren’t able to feature between summer 2017 and fall 2020. Today we start rectifying that, with a selection of music released specifically during Rhythm Encounter’s “Lost Years.” Yes, of course NieR: Automata is here, along with a powerful lineup of other recent games. Join Mike, Mike, and Zach as we discuss these gems, and let us know which “lost” music you’d like to see in future episodes!

Featuring: Mike Salbato, Michael Sollosi, Zach Wilkerson; Edited by Mike Salbato
