OverClocked ReMix has officially rung in the new year with it's first album of 2012. Titled Unsung Heroes, it is a celebration of many classic RPGs that, though beloved, are rarely sourced for fan-made musical tributes. The appearance of this album is a bit ironic, however, considering that OCR's previous release was based on a game that likewise never got brought up in arrangement discussions prior. No matter.
Variety is the word once again, as 14 artists take on 15 solid but often overlooked RPGs via an array of musical styles. Games covered include Persona 3, Faxanadu, Bahamut Lagoon, Luminous Arc, Ghouls'n Ghosts, Suikoden... WHOAWHOAWHOA! Hold up! Ghouls'n Ghosts!? Seriously? That's not an RPG! What's it doing here? Could no one think of anything else to fill that slot? Such a curious inclusion.
Whatevs. The album is free as always. Who's truly going to complain about a single oddball track?
