***This album specifically covers the N64 version. Sorry PS1 and arcade fans. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯***
Rush is a classic game. When it was first released on the N64, reviewers said that it was brilliant - one of the top three games available on the system. Today it seems to be mostly forgotten. In my opinion it's still an incredibly fun game whether you have never played before or if you're someone who has been refining their skills on the game's tracks for years.
The style here is a departure from my earlier Street Fighter 2 cover album. This album is more straightforward, and at times significantly more absurd. That's a function of the source material. As with the previous album, I kept the melodic content mostly spot on to the game while altering the percussion to my own taste. I hope there are a few people out there who have the same kind of nostalgia for this game and its music that I do.
