Several Sonic Soundtracks Settle onto iTunes

After much fan demand, Sega has begun releasing several of their Sonic series soundtracks on to Apple’s iTunes service. Most of these albums, though recently released, aren’t too easy to track down and import for those looking to legally own the music, never mind worrying about bootlegs.

The albums now available are the 20th Anniversary editions of Sonic CD, Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Heroes, as well as “The Best of Crush 40: Super Sonic Songs”, “The Works” (Jun Senoue‘s standalone album featuring several original songs and some Sonic music), and Sonic Colors ViViD SOUND × HYBRiD COLORS, the last one lovingly divided into three volumes for all three discs (Disc 2 and Disc 3 can be found at those links.) Sega further states that the soundtrack to Sonic The Hedgehog 4‘s episodes will also be touching down on iTunes in the future.

It should be noted that the 20th Anniversary album for the two Adventure titles aren’t as all encompassing as their original releases, which may turn some fans off. However, this is the best chance short of importing to show support for the musicians that worked hard to keep series’ reputation for good music alive and well.

    It’s easy to see why there’s a lot of fan demand. Sonic music is pretty much the best video game music…ever. Whoever composes these musics are total geniuses! Nearly every Sonic game has incredible and fun-to-listen-to music, so it’s appropriate to see them come to iTunes.

    Wow. Really? I find the music to the Sonic Adventure games (the stuff with lyrics that is) totally embarrassing. I was glad you could change the music for each stage in Sonic Generations- having to endure City Escape’s cheesy music again was just too much!

        You’d be surprised how many people don’t like the lyrical version of the song. I kinda like the prototype one with the lead guitar more.

        Surprisingly, Retro isn’t completely full of frothing at the mouth savages.

    It’s a disappointment the Adventure titles didn’t get some love, I’d like to have songs like Kick The Rock and A Ghost’s Pumpkin Soup, oh well at lest there’s a chance to get the Sonic 1 & 2 Anniversary OST!
