Gossamore724 Flawless, a journey - not to be taken lightly. Every detail counts, and it all comes together forms one of the greatest albums I've ever had the pleasure of listening to.

JazzPunker It's more an disturbing and atmospherice reliving of the advancer then an ordinary remix album and I really like it for ihat.
Cory presented the listener the real twisted natur of the game in a very impressive way by using culrure references though audio samples to deliver difficult to describe feeling and some kind post-stress.
All in all a very interesting expirience and something I would recommend for Mother fans. Favorite track: I am the evil in your heart.

about

This is a sometimes post-rock, sometimes psychedelic-rock rearrangement of songs from Earthbound (or Mother 2 in Japan). Originally composed by Keiichi Suzuki, Hirokazu "Hip" Tanaka and Hiroshi Kanazu, these songs exhibit a harrowing stress on a young boy coming to age amidst catastrophe. While the game is known for its quirkiness and humour, it's also known for its philosophical undertones about the nature of evil, the corruption of power and the loss of innocence. These rearrangements focus more on the latter than the former.
