"After a numerous amount of teasers for more than a month, the massive fan tribute album Spectrum of Mana is now available as a free download.
The three-disc compilation album covers every facet of the Hiroki Kikuta-composed classic SNES action RPG Secret of Mana. The album features performances from an overwhelming number of videogame music cover artists, including Stemage of Metroid Metal, Amanda Lepre of Descendants of Erdrick/Those Who Fight, Super Guitar Bros. and Cory Johnson (who some may know for his involvement in World 1-2: Encore).
The album features a very diverse amount of material, with the first disc being dedicated heavier, metal-infused tunes, the second serving as the album’s atmospheric and sentimental soundscape, and the third dubbed by the album’s creators as the “party” CD. Roll out the IPAs.
While the album is indeed free digitally, those who prefer physical copies can donate $15 to have one shipped out, complete with some impressive fan art." - Patrick Kulikowski
