The Legend of Zelda. Any gamer worth their weight in rupees is a fan of at least one of the games from this long lived series of awesome (and if not, may an octorok launch a spiky ball up your arse!! :3 ) One among many, many reasons that this is true has to do with the excellent music that accompanies every Zelda game. And while there has been plenty of Zelda love among the VGM community over the years, there hasn’t really been any albums that were solely devoted to it.
ENTER CORY JOHNSON.
This dude that I’d never even heard of before Jmr’s Open Circuit listening party on Areciboradio last weekend just up and released this INDESCRIBABLY amazing 23 track Legend of Zelda tribute album. Turns out it’s actually been around a year in the making and you can damn well tell by the quality of it! Stylistically it’s a mix of prog rock, post-rock, blues, western country, jazz piano AND ZORA KNOWS WTF ELSE!!! Regardless, the end result is this stirring EPIC – in the TRUEST sense of the word – of Zelda love and musicality far beyond the norm.
IT’S ABSO-F**KIN-LUTELY BEAUTIFUL. I mean, seriously, that sums it up, because how often do you hear someone describe a VGM album with the term “BEAUTIFUL“?? Also, the guy needs to get a band happening so I can see his ass play at MAGFest; would be a killer show. SO GET ON THAT, VGM MUSICIANS!!!! ;D ANYWHO, enough words already! HEY LISTEN!! to it already and then promptly go bug the deku nuts out of Cory on Twitter about how awesome it is so he’ll keep making more fantastic VGMusic. DEFINITELY will be your good deed of the day/week/month/year/EVAR. ;)
