While nearly all of Nintendo's past games have contained nothing but MIDI-based music, Super Mario Galaxy is one of the first to put heavy emphasis on a live orchestral score. The results are amazing, sweeping players and critics alike into the brilliant, star-studded cosmos. With Mahito Yokota and the help of legendary composer Koji Kondo who has been repsonsible for decades of iconic Mario and Legend of Zelda melodies, Super Mario Galaxy's music is a triumph that was voted the best game score of 2007 by IGN and others. This exclusive gold edition that was only available in Japan crams all the live recorded music onto one CD that clocks in at a hefty 67:18 minutes of pure bliss.

Be aware though, that it doesn't contain everything that could be considered "music" in the game. Things like the invincibility theme and the music that plays on the balance ball, don't show up in this collection. Apparently they can be found in the "Platinum Version" of the soundtrack, but that is obscenely expensive and was not worth it to me.
For the few bucks, this soundtrack is definitely worth it, and a nice orchestrated change from the usual heavy-metal stuff that dominates most modern games!
