Tracklist for Senoue’s “The Works” Revealed

Tracklist for Senoue’s “The Works” Revealed

by September 28, 2009

Sonic Scene24 Tracks, but very Little Sonic Representation

When Jun Senoue’s The Works music compilation comes out in about a month’s time, you will hear more tracks from the Managing Baseball Team Game franchise than you will from the Sonic games.

Out of the 24 tracks planned, only 3 will be Sonic related.  The first is the Dreams of an Absolution Remix, featuring both Senoue and Lee Brotherton, known as Bentley Jones.  That had been previously released on the vocal OST to the 2006 Sonic the Hedgehog.  The second, Westopolis, had been a part of Shadow the Hedgehog.

UPDATE: We have very astute readers, who have kindly pointed out below a third Sonic connection, in After the Adventure, from the much sought after Radio DC soundtrack.  That piece mixes elements from Sonic Adventure and NiGHTS into Dreams.  Thanks, everyone!

But fear not, because shortly after this releases comes Senoue’s The Best of Crush 40 compilation, and while we don’t have a tracklist for that yet, it should lean heavier on the Sonic fanservice than The Works.

In the meantime, take a look at the track list below, sent into us by Fox Gungrave of french site Eversonic via our News Tips system.  If you like what you see, rumor has it that Senoue himself may take a couple of personal orders for The Works via Paypal.  Fox Gungrave speculates these could be signed by the musician himself, but that’s not yet confirmed–we’ll let you know as we get further information.
