The packaging Fangamer uses is THE BEST - this was my first purchase from this site and I could tell they really care about the quality in which their products are shipped/received. I greatly appreciate that - Ten stars just for that! Banjo-Kazooie is one of my favorite games from childhood, and I had to pick this up since I missed the chance when iam8bit was selling their version a few years ago. That said, the presentation of this release is incredible - the throwback art style chosen Perfectly fits the carefree nature of the game/soundtrack and I really dig the overall aesthetic of it. The only reason I've given this 4 stars instead of 5 is that I feel the collection is missing some key tracks from the game. This soundtrack definitely gets on the repetitive side once you start getting into Grunty's Lair tracks (I knew this going in of course, but I just needed this vinyl, I love this game) and I feel it could have greatly benefited from tracks like the ones that play inside Nipper's shell from Treasure Trove Cove, inside the Christmas Tree in Freezeezy Peak, or all four season themes in Click Clock Wood. Missing tracks like this just kind of make the whole set blend together too much. I still love this soundtrack, just would have picked a few other tracks for the release personally. Thanks for an awesome first experience as a customer, I've already made more purchases :D
I couldn’t be more pleased with this box set! High quality outer case. Double inner sleeves for all 4 records. First sleeve has great artwork of characters from the game, and second sleeve is a nice poly lined one to prevent scratches. The records themselves sound excellent! I also enjoyed the sheet with the liner notes from Grant Kirkhope. If you are a Banjo Kazooie fan, you need to get this set. Also a great price considering It’s 4 LP’s. I would highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed!
I love the packaging of this item! I also need to give thanks and kudos to FanGamer. This item was packed and shipped so well! Often times vinyl records or their packaging gets damaged in shipping, but FanGamer boxes this so well it came in pristine condition.
Great quality overall, but had an issue with skipping during every other Gruntilda's Lair themes. I wasn't sure if it was because it was dirty or not, but it kept skipping during the same parts for each playthrough of the songs.
I missed the previous vinyl release - the limited run one with the realistic photo of BK on the cover. After realising that the resale value of these were unreal i gave up hope owning this music on Vinyl. After seeing this pop up via Grant Kirkhope's social media i knew i had to grab it.
The presentation is so fresh and beautiful - a real work of love from the art to the sleeves. The music is true to the game - even some of the shorter ditty's have found a place on this play list.
Listening to the music in order takes you from the intro log all the way to the end credits and to every level in-between. What a lovely, timeless piece of nostalgia done incredible justice in this package. Couldn't recommend enough and i'm hopeful that when Grant Kirkhope finishes his remixes of the BK tracks - they find there way onto a similar product.
