Music: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed OST Cruises In

ASR Transformed Xbox.com screenshots 12

Are you tired of the same old boring routine of “just” driving around with that gosh darn newfangled hip-pop, and kids with their ol’ timey Top 25 Songs of the Week that you’ve been hearing week after week before? Do you need something new to spice up your time behind the wheel? Well, strap in your seatbelt and hit the pedal to the metal, because we’ve got just the thing!

An official soundtrack release for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Sumo Digital’s multiplatform racing game with transformable vehicles, racers and race tracks commemorating SEGA’s history and numerous franchises, and a killer OST arranged by the one and only Richard Jacques, has gone live on iTunes and Amazon. The sound collection has been split into two albums with 34 tracks in each, one volume priced at the reasonable 9.99$/£7.99/8,99 €/¥1,600 online.

“But Vizard! That means there are only 68 songs total, right? Doesn’t Transformed have more tunes in-game in comparison? Who should we mark as Missing on the sides of milk cartons?!”

For those curious, the only missing tracks from the actual game are the All-Star themes to guest characters Wreck-It Ralph and Danica Patrick, and those of the PC exclusive, Xbox Avatar, and Nintendo Mii characters, as well as certain jingles, but, save for that, the complete soundtrack to the core experience is all there, present and accounted for, for you to enjoy! Boost your acceleration with Ocean View, drift along to Burning Depths, speed past other drivers with Race of Ages, headbang along to Adder’s Lair, and so on!

On a serious note, however, don’t actually do any of those things. Except buying the soundtrack. Yes. That’s okay. Listening to it while driving is okay too. Remember, eyes on the road, be courteous to your fellow drivers, and obey the speed limit! This isn’t a video game, this is real life, baby!
