Sonic Classic 2: Original Soundtrack

Sonic Classic 2 is a freeware game in development for PC by HezMan and is the sequel to surprise, surprise, Sonic Classic, also for PC. I don't think the game is fully available yet. The only thing I've been able to come across are gameplay demos that were posted in early 2012. What it available is the Sonic Classic 2: Original Soundtrack.

The music for Sonic Classic 2 was composed by Karl Brueggemann, the same gent responsible for the three lovely Sonicesque albums. Like the Sonicesque series, the soundtrack for Sonic Classic 2 has completely original music done using Genesis instruments. From the sound of things, it takes it's audio cues from Sonic 3 & Knuckles, which is never a bad thing.

My favorite tracks on this album are Drill Base Act 1, Special Stage, Crystal Cove Act 2, Jupiter Jungle Act 1 (love the jazzy feel this one has), and Glistening Glacier Act 1. The entire album is pretty solid and the music is a love letter to music from my all-time favorite Sonic game, Sonic 3 & Knuckles. This a name your price download so you can make a donation for the album or get it for free. If you need some more game tunes to jam to on your iPod, you can't go wrong with this baby.
