Full scans added. Will do the same for the other Wangan album sometime next week.

Although not as good as the Wangan 2 album, it's still top notch and techno-Koshiro at its finest. If you liked the Wangan 2 album, you must also pick this one up.

Thumbs up

Hopefully these three songs will be included in the Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 4 OST:

http://www.bandainamcogames.co.jp/am...anmaxi3dx/bgm/

Entry Maxi3DX
Select Maxi3DX
Enjoy The Process

WMMT3DX is an update of WMMT3. Entry Maxi3DX is an arrange (of sorts) of Select Maxi3. Enjoy The Process is a full length song worthy of joining the rest of the soundtrack.

Yuzo Koshiro is the composer:

I feel this soundtrack stomps Maxi 1&2. Does anyone know what the limited First Press edition included? (this is listed on the cdjapan page)

Shame Koshiro still hasn't learned to nix the vocals in his tracks. If you want to hear good vocals listen to Yuzoboy's mashup of "Stream of Tears" mixed with "Forget about Dre" and "Shine" mixed with "Love Lockdown". I really need to pick up 3.

I think the vocal tracks on this album are far better than Yuzoboy's mashups. They're quite WTF to me. Including the 9/11 music video. WTF.

Of course the vocal tracks aren't for everyone, but then neither is techno. I think a good handful of people will like the vocal tracks (myself included) and I'm glad Koshiro still includes vocals in some of his songs.

Is there enough new music on 3DX+ to warrant a CD release? If so then what a crime that it never saw a release!

WMMT4 Trailer

So hopefully he'll do what he did for the first two, and release them (3DX and 4) together!

Wow I didn't even know there was a part 4 coming... thanks for the heads up on that. Hopefully you're right and we'll get a 2xCD set

edit: I did some research and it seems like there would be enough music for a 3DX/3DX+ disc. Below is a list of every new piece of music I was able to find:

3DX music

opening theme
entry
select
result
enjoy the process

3DX+ music

opening theme
entry
select
result
stay where you are
loop of fortune
feel the passion 2010 remix
acid runner 2010 remix

plus they could always throw in stream of tears (more tranced) as a bonus...

This album has a lot of good material, a few really good tracks, and a lot of tracks later on the cd that leave you longer for something better. It seems like every track is structured exactly the same; it feels kinda lazy. It is ultra-repetitive, yet satisfying. And as far as the vocal tracks, I only like the first vocal track.

The dud tracks aren't as particularly bad on this one. 'Black Pressure' is such a failed remix though.

More thoughts later.

Yea. It's a retake on the track on Wangan 2 that goes "3..2..1." I forget what it's called.

I just put in 'In Your Dreams' into audacity and pretty much the whole track is clipping. Really surprised by this.

Oh no, I was confused about the failed part. It's so... awesome.

And yeah, I'd be surprised if every song weren't clipping like that. I put VGM songs into Sound Forge all the time, and if I detect clipping, I get this sea of orange markers across the entire waveform. Highly-compressed soundtracks like this are particularly prone to it.

Do you mean "Destination Blackout" (goes 1, 2, 3, 4)?

So is this where Yuzo took his inspiration from? Sounds like he did a cover to it...

Dominators - Dream your dream [1998]
