The Pixel Mixers have done it again. First they wowed me with their Chrono Trigger album, Clockwork and now they've put together an incredible Legend of Zelda tribute album, Hylian Downfall.
Hylian Downfall is a three disc digital album spanning the first four Legend of Zelda games. Disc 1 is comprised of arrangements of The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. All of disc 2 is taken up by A Link to the Past and closing out this impressive album is disc 3, which covers the overlooked Link's Awakening.
This tribute album covers a vareity of genres like jazz, rock, heavy metal, and acoustic to name a few. I never imagined I'd hear a jazz rendition of Dark World but it's here on this album and I freaking love it. Ditto for that head banging remix of Tal Tal Heights. I'm very pleased that Link's Awakening was given so much love and appreciation on this album. That game has so wonderful music that is frequently overshadowed by the other Zelda soundtracks.
Hylian Downfall is a free download so you've got no reason not to check it out. If you need further convincing, you can view the preview trailer below.
