Reviews

This compilation is the heaven. If your melancholic retro-heart beats for The Legend Of Zelda: Links Awakening on Game Boy, if your Nintendo-soul is hungry for this warm Japano-RPG-feeling, if you just want a lovely blast from the past: This is your place.

Equilibrium features 9 talented NES chip music artists, including FearofDark, Rushjet as well as surasshu who together create a soothing soundscape of tranquility, peace and a melodic balance inspired by the sea side and docks of Japan. The songs are ripe with inspiration and full of atmosphere, making use of ingenious sound effects to create a setting rarely heard from chiptunes, let alone NES based.
