History Repeating, Not Always A Bad Thing

History Repeating, Not Always A Bad Thing
4.5/5 Review Score:

For those of you who don’t know, MegaMan III is my favourite game of all time. Also my first. I’ve been playing it since before I even knew what a video game really was. Then, a few years back, I heard of a band named The Megas, a rock group that specialized in MegaMan songs, with a full album on MegaMan II. And throughout their podcasts, they kept promoting an album for three that they’ve been working on. And in mid June, they announced History Repeating: Blue had finally arrived.

History Repeating: Blue is the first half their MegaMan III based double album, with Red coming in the near future. The lyrics help add some body to the games’ story, which was basic, back in the days of II and III. The album contains songs from the perspectives of MegaMan, His “older brother” ProtoMan, Dr. Wily, Dr. Light, and four of the robot masters (TopMan, MagnetMan, SparkMan, and SnakeMan), giving them a new personality, previously only seen in comics, and cartoons.

History Repeating’s Blue disc contains nine full songs as well as the ten second enemy select track, giving us just shy of forty minutes of classic video game rock goodness.

Featuring songs such as:

Anybody that likes the old Megaman games should give this album a listen, and if you like it, I suggest getting the physical CD. It gets you a digital copy also, so even if you wear it out with overplaying like mine is, or don’t want to wait to be able to listen to it on the go, you won’t have to. But the real treat with with the hard copy is the presentation. The art is fantastic, done by the lead singer, Josh Breeding, and the Lyric booklet looks like a classic Instruction Manual.

All in all, I give this album 4.5 Destroyed Robot Masters out of 5. Check it out at the bands’ site or their youtube account where they fully uploaded it, So you can have history repeating for you, over and over again.

So, if someone were to come up to you and tell you that your favourite classic video game’s soundtrack was taken, given a healthy dose of rock, some sweet lyrics, and pressed that to a CD, how would you react? Well, if you’re anything like me, when I was told History Repeating: Blue was coming out… Well, this popular meme sums it up.

My reaction when told about History Repeating.
