I just got this awesome CD set in the mail and enjoyed listening to the jazztastic songs while I take care of other things. The first thing I noticed is, unlike the Super Kart Album, this comes in a hard plastic case (similar to a double-sided DVD case). The songs themselves are beyond compare; I especially dig their rendition of the Chrono Trigger theme and the Koopa Beach theme. If you're looking for a great jazz album, this CD set is a fantastic choice.
About a week ago I got these two albums in the mail. I put Volume 1 in my radio in the car to listen while I drive and I haven't taken it out.
I love video games. I love jazz, electronic and many other music genres. When these two come together it's pure magic. I can't praise The OneUps enough for their creativity and talent when it comes to creating music. Buy this album. You will love it.
The band's first album and their two-disc follow-up have been compiled into a single two-disc set coming in at over 154 minutes of video game music arrangement bliss. This is the only way to get "Volume 1" and "Volume 2" in a physical format. Hear the eclectic collection from the early years of the long-running video game music cover band, The OneUps.
