Why did I put off this album for so long? It embodies the atmosphere of Metroid so well. The Crateria remix is freaking excellent ambience.

Quoting myself from almost two years ago:

Still by far the best OCReMix album ever made. I can't believe it's been over ten years. I still remember when this came out. All these artists should get together again and work on a Metroid Prime album or something.

Final Fantasy IX: Worlds Apart—the 53rd OCReMix album—was released today, and it is the only OCReMix album that has been close to rivaling Relics of the Chozo in my opinion.

We celebrate Relics of the Chozo's 12th anniversary in three days, and I still listen to it from time-to-time. I especially remember playing StarCraft: Brood War with this album playing in the background during LAN parties at my friends house. That was back when I didn't have a laptop so I brought my tower, keyboard, mouse and CRT monitor!

How times have changed! And yet, Relics of the Chozo—an emotional and ethereal journey across Zebes—is still the best OCReMix album ever made!

Just to complement the previous reply, the updated torrent can be found at http://bt.ocremix.org/torrents/Super_Metroid_-_Relics_of_the_Chozo.torrent .

It was originally released as OGGs and WAVs. This updated release is MP3s and FLACs. The source tune names are also corrected to the official titles, the album art is embedded, and the files are tagged to be compatible with iTunes and portable music players.

That's why. :-)

I can only seem to find a torrent with a .rar of the WAV files and the cover art in some file format I've never seen. :-?

Edit: Nevermind. I just found the updated torrent on bt.ocremix.org . The "Download Torrent" button here http://ocremix.org/album/3/super-metroid-relics-of-the-chozo isn't updated though.

Still great music, but I wonder why it's rereleased. I have it already as "Relics of the Chozo". Same titles but very slightly different file sizes

It took listening to 3 songs separately before I realized this is a continuous play album. That's pretty awesome. 3

Nearly a decade later, I still listen to this. Good work everyone

I have no clue why I've ignored this album for so long! It has to be because of the format (which Audacity has fixed for me) and that seems like a really dumb reason. This album is all atmosphere and I love it. It's hard to believe this was the first OCR album, the quality is amazing. Just goes to show chronological snobbery is lame.

Love this thing!

Just wanted to pop in and say that I've been listening to this album quite a bit recently at work. It's great, very atmospheric. Definitely the most cohesive and uniform album on the site. Love it.

OGG fies aren't that bad. you just need the right player. I think there's a plug-in for Winamp. If you need to switch the file format, though, BonkEnc Audio Encoder is a okay tool to use. I haven't had too many issues so far using it to switch mp3's to AAC's for my DSi. (http://download.cnet.com/BonkEnc-Audio-Encoder/3000-2140_4-10550755.html)

I've only heard bits and pieces of this album because I don't know how to use OGGs. My favorite track, out of what I scavenged from elsewhere, was Braving the Flames.

I agree with the gainsayers here: although OCR's first album, this remains one of its best and is definitely the most cohesive

Does anyone have the album art jpegs? The links to download them are dead.

Sorry to dig up this old thread. I would have PMed Digital Coma, but he's not listed as a member anymore.

Thanks

I found several places where you can find it just by searching "relics of the chozo" in a search engine's image search. Here's a couple hits: http://survey.mektek.ca/gift/chozo_cover.jpg and http://ocremix.org/album/3/super-metroid-relics-of-the-chozo (the preview pic of the album). Of course, the latter is more accurate but smaller, but if you just want it for your ipod, it's plenty big
