Now You Can Listen To The Greatest Video Game Music 2A new orchestral album provides beautifully arranged and performed renditions of videogame soundtracks old and new.

Personally, I’m a huge fan of videogame music; especially when talented musicians bring new life to the chiptunes of yesteryear. In previous years I’ve attended Video Games Live, Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds and The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddess – Musical concerts that have been some of the best musical events I’ve ever attended.

If you also have a passion for orchestral arrangements, then the release of The Greatest Video Game Music 2 could be right up your street. The original album was a fantastic collection of videogame music, and this new volume sounds even better – Just look at the track listing:
