Zen Frazier This is an outstanding compilation of licensed video game tunage. Very hard to pick a favorite track! Favorite track: Descent (Metroid).

Jaborwaki I love how diverse this track list is. No two songs are the same and every song gives me different reasons to enjoy it. Favorite track: I Do It for the Faeries (The Legend of Zelda).
Andrew thumbnail
Andrew I played this album non-stop for weeks after I got it, and it convinced me to do the same for the original as well. The music here is fantastic, from the ridiculous guitar-orchestral cover of 'Focus' from Super Hexagon, to the haunting remixes of Metroid Prime. Favorite track: Pride of Nations (Captain Tsubasa 2).

Emil Barrow Another amazing album by a stellar host of artists and composers. A perfect addition to the very strong collection of songs on the original World 1-2. Favorite track: Pride of Nations (Captain Tsubasa 2).

"World 1-2: Encore" is the followup to "World 1-2" that featured top-class videogame composers & arrangers, including Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), Manami Matsumae (Mega Man), Keiji Yamagishi (Ninja Gaiden), Austin Wintory (Journey) and many more. "Encore" is one more ride with 14 remixes of some of our favorite games — from Mega Man and Zelda to Sonic and Super Hexagon and plenty others. It's a celebration of the art & craft of videogames. It retains the same nature of World 1-2: a multitude of genres and styles, mixed together in a playful way.

World 1-2 is a music project directed and produced by Mohammed Taher of Brave Wave, and the precursor to founding the label as an official company in Japan.
