C418's Minecraft- Volume Alpha (a brief analysis)

   0
I wrote this today as a (late) listening assignment for my Audio Production 1 class. I know I'm not one to blog on here too often but I thought it suitable to provide some words of insight into what I think is a superb video game sound track. Enjoy.

The chunk of album I chose to listen to might appear to be unconventional at a first glance, but I hold it to be one of the most important within its type. Daniel Rosenfeld�s (AKA C418) Minecraft- Volume Alpha consists of a vast majority of the music found within the indie video game smash hit, (you guessed it) Minecraft. It�s a recent purchase of mine that I knew I wouldn�t regret even if I didn�t listen to the tracks all that much. Having the 24 pieces from such an inspirational game for only $4 was something I simply couldn�t pass up.




Here's the link for the download if anyone's interested in purchasing it >>> http://c418.bandcamp.com/album/minecraft-volume-alpha

Even if you don't (legally) buy it though, I hope that everyone's able to listen and ultimately enjoy this album. I feel that a majority of video game music is severely underrated and it's stuff like this that I hope will soon make people realize its true worth.

About Dr Roboone of us since 11:58 AM on 12.06.2009

I was a child of the 90's, which basically defines all of the games I grew up on. Stuff like Gauntlet, Duckhunt, Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and OoT, Crash Bandicoot, Streets of Rage 2, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter 2, Goldeneye: 007, Banjo Kazooie, Secret of Mana, Starcraft, Diablo II, Pokemon Red & Blue, you get the idea.
As of the last few years though, with the downfall of how great G4 used to be, I've become extremely out of touch with video games, and that's where Destructoid comes into my life. It's not that I'm not interested in brand spanking new games, it's just that I haven't the money to invest in them. I mean, sure I've gotten a Wii, but now it's just a novelty at best, only useful for SMBB and Mario Kart (I even tried Wii Fit at one point).
However, Destructoid's thrown me back into the loop, and I plan on getting back into gaming like a young child with hours to burn and no cares in the world.

I love D-toid's community and their magnificent writers, mostly the cast of the Pod-toid podcast. That is what I enjoy most about the site though, the honesty that their reviewers and players possess while discussing the most interesting of topics (some of which I didn't even think existed) in games, and I truly value that.

My Favourites:

Chrono Trigger
Legend of Zelda: Windwaker
Wario Ware
Shadow of the Colossus
Pokemon Blue
Starcraft
Harvest Moon: Back To Nature
Banjo Kazooie + Tooie
StarFox 64
Monster Rancher 2
Azure Dreams
Metal Gear Series (1-3)
Zombies Ate My Neighbors
Diablo II
Final Fantasty VIII
Indigo Prophecy
Resident Evil 4
Gladius
Legend of Mana

And probably a few more here and there.
