    Not exactly sure when it's coming, but, it's coming.

    First album was pretty good, I wonder if we'll hear any new renditions of nostalgic tracks by Jun Senoue in this one like his cover on Angel Island for SSBB?

    Here's hoping! The first volume was pretty bland outside of the bonus tracks and re-recorded Crush 40 tunes; it'll be nice to hear some new material come out of these otherwise mediocre releases.

    I'm interested. The first one was certainly enjoyable, although I wonder what's left to put on this... I can think of a few good not-entirely-Sonic-related tracks from the past decade, but I almost feel like it'll be more Senoue/Brotherton covers of older tunes, which may not be too bad.

    Isn't this the album about the other characters' songs? "Unknown from M.E.", "Dreams of an absolution" and some others may get in it.

    Lookin' forward to it. But I'm looking more forward to the Crush 40 Super Sonic album.

    I can't wait to have some of those older songs (I love Revvin' Up), and how Jun would go about covering Un-Gravitify. Also, would Fire Woman be a Blaze song?

    Anyway, I don't mean to derail the topic. The True Colors album art looks pretty cool. Also, it's probably more likely to see other characters' themes, as the title is True Colors (of which there are many, I guess, I mean Crayola makes 100+ crayon boxes), whereas the first one was True Blue, and it didn't reference the other characters at all.

    I'm still waiting for Crush 40 to cover Endless Possibility.

    Most likely, and this song has never been released before either, IIRC.

    In November 18, 2009 the band will release a new compilation of their best songs. The album will be called Crush 40: The Best of Crush 40 - Super Sonic Songs.

    Not sure if the date is 100% true, but it should give us an idea.
    Also it looks like the True Colors is coming out Dec 16 2009.

    Screw that, I'm waiting for the Zebrahead version.

    Your feet hit the ground, / over-and-over-agian
    Up without a sound / We'll stay as one, my friend
    Breakin' on through / So much thrill, to be free,
    But somehow I feel / that something's wrong with me,
    The speed's automatic / I got luggage in my attic,
    And the whole world's starting to feel so tragic...
    But I'll never give up 'till my dreams are awake,
    Cause I know one thing; This is my Escape!


    Yeeeeah.

    I'm quite lookin' forward to both of these albums - generally, not much bad can come out of this, can there? ... unless Senoue pulls one of those "Let's put one of the English Sonic X openings on there" again. :psyduck:

    But, you wanna know what band I really want to do music for in a Sonic game? <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZBQMJlVXyc&feature=related" target="_blank">Pendulum</a>. Also <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfFnU0FUGno&feature=related" target="_blank">Pendulum</a>.
     
  12. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    Another Sonic album I'm gonna end up buying and ripping.

    Guess I better go check the piggy bank. >.>

    EDIT: According to VMdb (Which hasn't proved me wrong yet), this album's out on December 16th.

    For a Moderator, you sure do have a habit of posting things that have very little to do with topic relevancy.

    I'm commenting on Sonic's physical appearence getting worse throughout the years as shown through the cover of the album. It's not my fault you can't figure that out.

    What's wrong with the way he looks on the cover-art? He looks pretty much indentical to how he looks in every recent game.

    Yes it will, however the modern art is much better than the art used in Sonic Adventure 1 and Sonic Adventure 2. Oh god that was awful.

    I honestly think it's been getting better. The Sonic Unleashed in game model for Sonic has been the best looking character model for Sonic since the Sonic 3 sprites IMO

    However the pose is stupid I'll give you that much

    I can agree with that, his overall design was very fleshed out in Unleashed. I don't know how they did it but they actually made me like the new design for that entire game, somehow. He seemed more cartoony and he just animated very well.

    Yeah, I agree that the main issue with that picture is that his pose/expression is bad.
