Anarchy Reigns tops MadWorld in battle of beats

0

I loved the MadWorld soundtrack. It offered a perfect blend of angry, descriptively-violent hip hop and rap lyrics with the melodic sensibilities of PlatinumGames composer Naoto Tanka. I know there are those who didn't appreciate MadWorld's approach, so when I played the Anarchy Reigns build at E3 two years ago, I noticed the follow-up's shift towards a more electronic sound, which was completely fine by me.

Now with the Max Anarchy soundtrack in hand (it's called Max Anarchy in Japan), I can confirm that it's a better soundtrack. It's actually a lot more of the same, but with a more diverse cast of both composers and rappers, some of the aforementioned electronic backings to mix things up a bit, and two discs of music compared to MadWorld's one. Personal favorites including Ox, Sick YG, and Doujah Raze return along with new favorites including Vstylez, MuzeONE, and Skitz the Samurida.

Watch for our full review in Note Worthy in a couple of weeks, but if you want to get your hands on the album in the meantime, it's available for pre-order from CD Japan for $3,000 Yen ($37) and ships July 4, 2012.

Were you a fan of MadWorld's soundtrack, or was it too over the top for your tastes? Does rap music belong in videogames?
