    ART OF FIGHTING Well-Matched Contest Story Arrange Sound Trax
    PCCB-00213

    Having listened to many of SNK’s catalogue of mainstream franchises, I must report that I could very well disservice a bias towards most of the arrangements featured on many of their Scitron-catalogue “Arrange Sound Trax” albums. But I must give a hand to SNK; their music is always filled with a variety of instruments reflecting what the series calls for (resulting in mostly rock pieces) and their arrangement albums include an eclectic mix of musical style found within just about every SNK album which makes sure there’s a wealth of artist and vocal talent ahead.

    It’s inarguable that there are those bad albums in every game company’s history, with SNK, there aren’t that many bad, just not terribly good outside the realm of the hardcore, the enthusiast whom of which seeks out to hear (mostly high-quality) instrumental arrangements. I’ll point to the annual release of The King of Fighters Arrange Sound Trax, like the Falcom Special Box series…

    Found this at another journal... and of course, decided to do it myself. Rules are as follows:

    Go to the page of your number one artist, and follow the link of it's number one similar artist, then repeating that for this artist and so on, noting down each artist as you go. Do this until you've got to 50 artists (not including your number one). If you get any repeats, just go to the second similar artist or the nearest one that you haven't already had.
