Yes! Buoy Base is terrific. It's a real shame that it's used so little...

I only heard it in that one galaxy.  Why they would ussuch a terrific piece on a one-star galaxy is beyond me.

Also, is anyone liking any of the non-orchestral chiptunes?  I love the ice version of Freezeflame Galaxy and the Bowser Jr. Robot Reactor boss theme.

And just out of curiosity, when exactly do Platinum Club Members in Japan receive their gift?  Next month?

Platinum members have to apply for the full soundtrack before December 2nd and it will be shipped around the end of january if I understand correctly.
I'm no Platinum member though, so I'm only eligible for the Orchestral CD, which is already available, but only until mid-january.

I'm not a Platinum member either.
The year before, I was Platinum, and all I got was a Tingle Balloon Fight DS game.

Sigh...
the platinum members deserve that 2 disc thing. After all, they spent a lot to get it.

If only Nintendo had told me ahead of time.....

How can other businesses like YesAsia, etc get their hands on Club Nintendo stuff anyways?

Buoy Base has an underwater variation as well. :p

Ack, should've known with a title like "Buoy."  Well, I welcome a challenge. ;) 

Finally reached Gusty Garden Galaxy, and I can see what all the fuss is about.  What an adventurously epic track; this ranks right up there with Good Egg as my favorite Galaxy theme yet.  As for the recording, I must warn you that the intro transition here is VERY obvious.  I couldn't get by with getting a clean intro sans the wind sound effect, so once the song starts proper, you're just gonna hear that wind die down immediately.

Making these recordings, and researching where exactly there are "clean spots" of music in the levels (of which there aren't many) has really made me appreciate the team's sound effects work in this game.  It sure don't make the recordings easy for me, but you've gotta applaude them for nailing every square inch of this world's soundscape to a tee.

Angela, you're really doing a bang up job with these recordings. Each one makes the wait for the official OST a little less painful. smile

I have this strange suspicion that they actually use the Club Nintendo points in the majority of the import software they sell; it's not like most of their customers would actually be able to use them anyway.  I'm torn - on one hand I'd be really annoyed if I tried registering a game I imported while in the states after I moved to Japan.  On the other, whatever practice they're using is allowing me to get the Mario Galaxy OST, so I can't be *that* upset with it.

Amazingu Nov 26, 2007

Yiippee!

Managed to scavenge enough points together by pestering friends about it, so I immediately placed my order for the Orchestral OST today! It should ship around the end of January. Can't wait!

Some recordings to hold us over until the OST release:

Buoy Base Galaxy - sadly under-used piece of music...  No underwater arrangement here, but we have to take what we can get!

Melty Molten Galaxy - why is this song so damn epic!?  O_o

Heads up: ncsx.com is now taking preorders for the one disc Club Nintendo CD for $23.  Personally I love a lot of the non-orchestrated stuff in the game enough that I would never want just the single disc one, but for completists or anyone who just wants the live stuff, check it out!

Angela Dec 1, 2007

I've got Buoy Base Galaxy up.  Regrettably - and try as I might - I just couldn't get a clean enough intro for this track, so I opted to leave it out.  Don't be too angry with me.

Also, I'm gonna have to work on the underwater variation at a later time.  I'm a little too lagged to edit this badboy out tonight.

I heard some of Super Mario Galaxy's music in context for the last night and I was pleasantly surprised by what I heard. It isn't the kind of release I would buy myself but as an outsider previously looking in it lived up to the hype expressed above in my eyes.

Thanks for all this, sounds great. I just signed up for this...

I would really like to have small soundclips from Super Mario Galaxy, especially the little mushrooms. Any idea of where i can get them?

thanks
