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.

Episode 217: Best Of Year In Review 8

Rob joins Brent in person for another exciting episode of the boizz sharing their top ten favorite tracks they discovered in roughly the last year.  Gabe also gets in on the action and shares his top three.  Lots of Rambo talk on this one (not that that’s spoiling anything), but more importantly, a major, major insight is made regarding the music to Sonic the Hedgehog, which you don’t wanna miss.  Great music, great talking, great episode.  Partial track listing below.
