Hey! Listen! We know you've been diligently honing your ocarina skills since The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time dropped in 1998, but give your lungs a break and enjoy the game's breathtaking score on sweet colored vinyl. Drop the needle anywhere on this to have Epona sidle up and whisk you away to Kokiri Forest, Lon Lon Ranch, Lake Hylia, Death Mountain, or just gallup through Hyrule field. Arranger and project director Eric Buchholz states: "Orchestral recordings of music from The Legend of Zelda have become increasingly popular over the last several years. With Hero of Time, we sought to create a single, cohesive experience that weaves all of the complex underlying themes of the game, like impermanence and mortality, with Koji Kondo's timeless melodies that have become as iconic as the game itself. The orchestration takes an 'east-meets-west' approach, with the inclusion of taiko ensembles, eastern woodwinds, and harmonies found prevalent in Japanese film and game scores." This limited double vinyl pressing (one forest green swirl LP + one magenta swirl) is truly something to behold. Housed in die-cut gatefold jacket with foil-stamped printed inners; a no brainer for boys without fairies and princesses alike.
