Other than that, sounds awesome.

If I remember correctly, I think they actually offered physical CD's as part of a Kickstarter when they were getting the funding together for this.

@Archaic; Do you know how Joypad Records provides copyright clearance for projects such as this that are based on game music?

While I'm unfamiliar with the specifics, I do know that there's actually legal protections for releasing covers of songs. I'm not sure of all the complexities involved, but I understand it boils down to crediting the original creators and artists properly, and paying an industry standard rate of royalties to them. So groups who release their remix/cover albums for free are pretty much always in the clear there, since (standard rate)% of $0 will always be $0.

This sounds interesting, but i really don't have $10 to just freely spend on stuff like this, especially since i'm trying to save up for a WiiU. I wish there was a free version (legally, that is).

Wow I don't think I've heard the Red and Blue soundtrack sound so beautiful. Just from the previews,I knows it's something I'll definitely be downloading.

Couldn't agree more. Currently #3 on the soundtracks board. #43 on the albums board.
I hope this gets big. Like news-spot-on-major-video-game-sites big

I didn't even play Red/Blue, but I'll probably end up buying this anyways. I'm sure it's the same catchy tunes as Gold/Silver has.

In GSC, Viridian Forest is now part of Route 2 and merges its theme with a brand new one, Lavender Town is remixed to be happier and melodious, and Cinnabar Island uses Viridian City's theme instead of its unique one. I'm sure there are other differences, but this album is based on the RGBY versions.

Re: Pokémon Reorchestrated: Kanto Symphony: Album of licensed orchestral covers to be

You should give Red/Blue a chance with an emulator.

I think this soundtrack is a great idea. But I prefer to buy an actual CD than buy it off iTunes. I am afraid that someday my computers will mess up and I will lose everything I downloaded. That is why I like to buy CDs, it is nice to have some music that I can just put into my computer without the trouble of downloading again.

This album is just too epic for words D'X I have only heard the first 9 songs and I've already cried out of nostalgia twice, with Battle! VS Trainer and Red's Journey (The Road To Cerulean City).

I just bought this and am listening to it right now. I am almost in tears. Beautifully composed, sounds amazing. I want this music in a game, but on the other hand I'm not sure if players could handle all the feels, so best not...

Re: Pokémon Reorchestrated: Kanto Symphony: Album of licensed orchestral covers to be

I just bought the album through Joypad today. WOW, is it epic!

I've been following this project since I stumbled across a few of Skotein's first orchestral Pokemon covers, and am now eagerly awaiting his inevitable Johto Symphony!

Re: Pokémon Reorchestrated: Kanto Symphony: Album of licensed orchestral covers to be

I just bought the album yesterday... Wow!!! I've already listened to it through about five times!

It's just incredible! The crazy thing is how it manages to stretch these simple melodies into engrossing compositions. My favourite tracks so far are:

Oak research lab
Red's journey
Team Rocket hideout
Silph co under siege
Ocean waltz (surfing theme)
Pokemon mansion
And the final showdown vs rival, of course!

They're all amazing, though.
