As great as this looks, I kinda hope there might be a deluxe 3LP version in the future that includes all of the songs, including the short interlude stuff and unused songs, like the digital album has. A few of my favorites were not able to fit on this release.
Was meaning to write up a quick review on this for awhile, but haven't until now. It was only a matter of time before the immensely popular game's soundtrack got a vinyl release. Ranging from chiptune based homages to heartfelt performances on acoustic guitar and piano, Undertale's music run the gamut in videogame BGM. Several of these tracks pay homage from games that inspired Toby by taking the soundfonts from said games and re-using them in these tracks. While I've never played Megaman X, I've heard sounds from that are in here (and obviously FF6), and can confirm from experience that "Ghost Fight" (not on vinyl) "Dummy!" and "Amalgam" use sounds from Earthbound/Mother 2. The game's climax culminates with "Your Best Nightmare" and "Finale", a goose-bump raising sonic ride. With the final side, the non-standard path BGM is presented, finishing with the overused bane of YouTube fandom "MEGALOVANIA".
The audio is mastered properly for the format and sounds amazing. Very little noise/clicks/pops on these. A few faults to mention though. For some reason, the first bar or two of "Snowy" is strangely absent on the vinyl release! If intentional, it seems rather irrational. Also, it probably would have flowed better if "Bergentrückung" was included and went without gaps right into "ASGORE". Speaking of which, from a personal standpoint I'm a little disappointed that "Oh! Dungeon" "Core Approach" and "Good Night" weren't included. I know they had to fit 20 minutes of audio on each side but they could have taken off one of the 'true final boss themes' to fit those in I felt.
The Dogsong bonus 7" is literally just the Dogsong extended to loop like 12 times or something. It's about 5-6 minutes long naturally. My copy came a little scuffed on the vinyl side and sounds a little more poor then the main pressing unfortunately but I can't complain otherwise. Plus it has it's own little sleeve which is better then just throwing it in a regular PVC sleeve.
Overall, a very good release. The bonus inserts are great additional material and I feel is worth the $35 price tag.
