We’ve been getting a lot of interesting genre albums of classic Famicom music lately. First that was Zoku Fami Compi with its house style arrangements. Then sound got loud with the Japan release of Powerglove’s Video Game Metal. But recently things have mellowed again, with the release of Tariki Echo’s Fami Reggae.
As you would expect, this takes memorable songs from classic Famicom games and gives them a reggae flavor, though they still retain a bit of their chiptune sound as well, it seems. As you would also expect, the one Mega Man-themed track on this album is Rockman 2‘s Wily Stage theme 1. I think it’s a law that any game album featuring Mega Man music requires that track. You can sample it in the above preview video at the 1:38 mark.
