Rayman 3: Aural Anomalies (Multi-Platform / 2003)
enter what is some of the most unique and interesting video game music of all time! Plume Leonard, Fred Leonard, and Laurent Parisi put down a veritable pot-pourri of not-so-standard audio with the whimsy of a AAA hollywood fantasy score slammed head-first against French urban and electronic styles. this is one of my favorite video game soundtracks overall for its truly one-of-a-kind style and attitude, and is definitely something i think all musicians should truly check out as a good reference of what it sounds like when composers are really “doing their own thing”.
this 35 tracks is not the full soundtrack, but only the main themes from the game, as to keep it interesting outside of an in-game setting. the unfortunate downside to this soundtrack is the fact that it is not only stored in a somewhat poor quality in-game (thanks UbiSoft), but is also stored in thousands of tiny encrypted pieces that need to be pieced back together and arranged in their original form. as such, there are some small hiccups throughout. thank you to Killy at RaymanPC for handling this arduous task (follow the link for RaymanPC’s full Rayman music page, with full soundtracks for each game)!
the files sourced from RaymanPC have been retagged, rearranged, and organized for optimal front-to-back listening.
