If someone told you a (mostly) a Capella album of your favorite video game songs existed, and was this good, you would probably laugh. At least, that's what I did. But this album sacrifices absolutely nothing and manages to capture the most important part of these pieces, their tone. From something as sprawling and awe-inspiring as "Guar Plains" to the total opposite in the "Brinstar" theme, they manage to get it all. Yes, some auto-tune, or at least some effects for voices, are used heavily, but only the exact amount necessary to turn the compositions into an aural dream. I highly recommend each and every song, but especially the ones you are most familiar with. They only serve to compliment and in some ways, enhance, the originals and I'm nothing short of impressed.
