Editor's review by Adam Corn (2019-01-01)

As with The Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary Concert album from last year, it's hard to go wrong with an original orchestral best album for a series like the Seiken Densetsu (aka Mana) series, with 25 years of themes from such fan favorites as Secret of Mana and Legend of Mana behind it. I use the "original" somewhat loosely, as several of the arrangements are quite similar to those in earlier albums like Seiken Densetsu: Let Thoughts Ride on Knowledge, Drammatica, and the Orchestral Game Concert albums. But even fans having with the entire collection of existing series arrangements will likely enjoy the slight differences here, not to mention the several themes getting orchestral renditions for the very first time.
