Ecco: the Tides of Time - MegaDrive/Genesis Soundtrack

The second entry in the series sees a full exclusive Genesis soundtrack composed by Attila Dobos (now Heger), Andras Magyari, David Javelosa and Andy Armer DMP. With Spencer Nilsen concentrating fully on the Sega CD version, we get two unique soundtracks for Ecco - The Tides of Time!
This Genesis soundtrack version is actually a perfect example of what's possible with the Genesis soundchip! Fast, eerie, beautiful, calm, and sometimes alien. There are many tracks in such a huge variation, and they support the nature of the game so much, often even better than its CD counterpart! Enjoy one of the best Genesis soundtracks there is!
