Notes

"One of the most unique, ambitious and experimental game soundtracks ever made. Sourced from the original hardware and carefully remastered in collaboration with composer Yuzo Koshiro.

Similar to the task of condensing Yuzo Koshiro and Motohiro Kawashima’s abundance of ideas into a Mega Drive cartridge in 1994, it feels almost impossible to convey the influences, technical achievements and sheer ambition of their masterpiece in a single paragraph today. By combining automatic composition methods, custom programming languages and a complete sense of artistic freedom, Koshiro and Kawashima transcended their medium and created something so incomparable that it’s hard to believe it came from any games console, let alone a 16bit one. Streets of Rage 3 is urgent, demanding and a complete rejection of the notion that video game music is either pedestrian or predictable.

This album was originally released by Data Discs in 2017 as a vinyl-only edition. This download version has been newly remastered for digital distribution in 2020.

Note: this is an officially licensed product. Royalties will be paid to the composer and the rights holders with every purchase."
