Is the OST for Sonic Mania available for purchase online? I looked on Amazon and the vinyl was the only thing available for purchase. Are there other places I can buy it from?

Nah, as far as we know, it's only the vinyl. Althought there are Youtube videos that have the dl link for an unofficial soundtrack, though I'd recommend the Vinyl more for supporting's sake

I want to support the Team for the awesome work they did on the game. Though I don't own a record player, so there would be no way for me to play it. It would be nice if they offered the OST as a digital purchase, so I can have mp3 files of it. I would totally give them my money if they did.

Considering the Data Discs Vinyl release comes with a digital copy of a portion of the soundtrack, my personal hunch is that SEGA's under some sort of exclusivity agreement which literally prevents them from distributing a complete, pure digital for a certain amount of time. My best guess, if this were true - I don't have a deep understanding of contract law - is that it would expire either 3, 6, or 12 months after the release date of the game. Whether that'd count as console or the later PC one doesn't particularily matter, but...

The other possibility (that I like the idea of less) is that they don't want to pay the licensing fees to release all of the old, remastered tracks for what was supposed to be a relatively budget game, and the Data Discs release is the result of months of internal debate and compromise. I mean, Hydrocity...

Well, you're in luck! The album comes with a download link for the contents of the record, both in MP3 & FLAC.

That's kool. I wish you could buy the download only. But beggars can't be choosers.

I didnt know the album came with a download link, that's actually really neat! But look on the bright side, you could have the mp3 files themselves, AND a nice large piece of card art with a disc for collectors sake

You make a good point, but I'm not sure if I want to spend $40 on all that...

Yeah, no matter how you look at it, not having a cheaper "digital only" option is kind of baffling.

Also, unless I'm wrong, doesn't the download that comes with the vinyl only cover 16 of the total tracks? Only the ones that are actually on the Vinyl anyway.

I'm half wondering if Sega is waiting to release full Mania and Forces' OSTs together as one multi-disc "Phantom Ruby" album or some nonsense like that?

Yeah, it only comes with the tracks that are included on the vinyl. The vinyl publisher, Data Discs, is only a relatively small company and most of their library is made up of SEGA game soundtracks. Mania did especially well for them - well enough to get a second run before the first run has even been shipped. I would buy a second half to the soundtrack in a heartbeat (and already got all three editions of the vinyl already). SEGA ought to do a full release, at least digitally if nothing else.

Didn't find out about this until today, otherwise I would've jumped on it immediately.
Shame that even the second release is sold out.
What're the odds there would be a third, ever?

Or at the very least, an FLAC download.

It seems you can still get it through Amazon, but it's not releasing till next month.

Totally forgot that I said I would do this. Okay.
