    I really like Metroid's music. It's so different from the music of other games around the time (or even today), and it has this alien feel that makes it perfect for exploring Zebes.

    inb4 Nintendo takes it down 'cause Tanaka didn't clear this with them first

    And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

    Can they please get Tanaka back as composer, anyway? I'm kind of over hearing Kondo liberally basting every score with bad voice midi effects.

    Really, and who can't dig Kraid's Lair? That has to be some of the best, most unique and memorable game music ever.
