I don't usually anticipate releases considering there's so much stuff to discover and enjoy, but damn, I am so glad there is going to be a Maxi4.

I'm presuming since Lantis is part of Namco Bandai, that is why it was chosen.

Well a lot people were hoping for that material to be included. I could have gone for a 3xCD set if thats what it took. I'd deal out that cheddah for Maximum Tune music

Got the album today. I think I'll do a day drive to CD1 and a night drive to CD2.

Can't you just listen to the album without polluting the environment?

A Wangan Midnight album? Preposterous!

The short answer: no.

This album definitely is better than 3 because Koshiro figured out how to make the buildup parts/non-main melodies something to look forward to. The vocal tracks should really go away. I don't mind spoken word like in the first track of CD2, but the fast-paced singing is a big turn-off in trance.

Favorite tracks right now are Nostalgia and Time Trial Maxi4.

My ratings for each track right now:


Edit: Will have to redo ratings. 'Black Zone' is definitely in the top 3 tracks on the album.

Got around to listening to this... a decent Wangan Midnight soundtrack. Maxi2 has the most songs I actually dislike, but I like more songs on it than Maxi4, whereas Maxi4 is more consistent, but there are far less really standout tracks. Maxi3 is still way, way the best Wangan Midnight soundtrack I've heard (I've only heard the Maximum Tune soundtracks).

One thing I will say is that the vocals tracks have gotten progressively better. I didn't like Maxi2's, Maxi3's were actually pretty good and Maxi4's are actually really good. Re-Birth and Tailight are just =D
