A decade and a half ago a sublime blend of Eastern role-playing and Wild Western adventure was released in Japan. Today the talented folks at OC Remix celebrate that release with a free album featuring more than four hours of expertly twisted tunes from the soundtrack of the original Wild Arms.
While I wouldn't call the Wild Arms series of role-playing games revolutionary, it was powerful enough for the 53 artists featured on OC Remix's 31st album, Wild Arms: Armed and Dangerous, to create 58 astounding musical mix-ups. They've managed to fix everything on here: Hip-hop, reggae, trance, jazz, and much more, all sprinkled with Wild Arms' distinctive Old West flavour. I imagine it's quite tangy and smoky.
And free. Nothing tastes quite as good as free. Got take a bite and see for yourself.
