Episode 219: Two

Two.  Interesting choice to call this episode "Two."  Brent and Rob cover lots of ground, lots of popular bands and artists of the 80's and 90's, that is.  Some weird mystery sounds come out of Gabe and Brent as well.  Also, a new Legacy Music Hour tribute VGM Karaoke by user Julián (aka ysy-y).  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #105: Castlevania

Castlevania had certainly been no stranger to the Legacy Music Hour during the show's first two years, but by Episode 105 there was still so much music left to feature that it was time for a dedicated series focus.  If that was your jam, be sure to equip this mixtape as your subweapon so you can enjoy the tunes all over again whenever you have the hearts to spare.


KEYGLYPH'S AWARDS & COMMENDATIONS, JUST BECAUSE

Instant new favorite: Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse - Evergreen
Other instant new favorite: Haunted Castle - Don't Wait Until Night (Bridge Stage BGM)

Pretty sure this tune is perfect in every way: Haunted Castle - Don't Wait Until Night (Bridge Stage BGM)

LMH Mixtape #104: Best Of Year In Review 2

We're finally closing out season two of the Legacy Music Hour mixtapes, which means it's time to tackle another Best Of Year In Review!  If you're not familiar with the way this goes, this mixtape will alternate between Brent and Rob's top ten favorite new VGM discoveries from Episodes 52 - 103. Rob's #10 pick starts us off, followed by Brent's #10 -- and thus the pattern continues until we build our way up to the boizz' #1s.  Cap it off with a bonus closing track from A Link to the Past, and the end result is a towering setlist of condensed musical power, and now it's yours for the taking.
