A BIG Thank You to Cocoebiz for helping me get a NiGHTS Perfect Album. That's the last time I wait even just a little to get a soundtrack release like this. Ebay seller champ_des_pins has them for sale also, so if someone else out there is looking for one, check there, I have a link at the bottom. It's unfortunate this album had such a low print run. I don't see why someone else hasn't picked up the publishing rights from Wave Master.

I can finally attest that this is the NiGHTS soundtrack release that everyone has wanted, and it should have been made long ago.

As an owner of the original NiGHTS one disc soundtrack (see photo below) I already knew there were plenty of missing tracks, but what I didn't expect to see for the Perfect Album were greatly extended tracks. I'm not talking about just longer track times, but most of the BGM for the stages have MUCH MORE extra music, and further elaborate on the loveable themes we're all familiar with.

The Orginal NiGHTS Soundtrack contianed only 24 tracks

The extended background music is presented on the NiGHTS Perfect Album as "Complete Versions". Whether or not these were originally intended to be in the game is something I am unsure of, but adding them here was an excellent choice, and I'm certainly glad they were included!

The NiGHTS into Dreams Perfect Album

The Perfect Album contains two discs covering the original NiGHTS into Dreams soundtrack, with a third disc covering the music for Christmas NiGHTS, the special Christmas edition of the game. All the missing tracks are finally present here, as far as I can tell, and if you're a fan of NiGHTS like me, you won't be disappointed with this edition of the beautiful soundtrack. I give this album a perfect 10, it is everything I hoped for and more.

    The Legend of Xanadu Help Page updated!

    Whew! I went through a time without the computer for a bit, and wasn't able to update. Today I am pleased to announce that the Legend of Xanadu help page has been updated with instructions for completing the remaining areas of the game! The only exception is the final dungeon tower, which I will provide maps for on a future update. The tower can be completed without a walkthrough, but the maps will be a big help. There are still some punctuation errors that will be corrected soon, in the meantime you can find a link to the help page in the links section.

    The amazing Cocoebiz has helped me to obtain some incredible items! I can't wait for them to arrive and report on them!

    See you next time.
