LMH Mixtape #81: Secret of Mana

After eighty-one episodes, Brent and Rob decided to do their first focus on one individual game's soundtrack: Secret of Mana.  Although opinions were mixed as to whether the game itself was one of the greatest titles of all time or just a super effective sedative, the boizz have absolutely no disagreements over the quality of the music.  Get right into the thick of it and take a journey through these selections from the dynamic fantasy soundscapes of Hiroki Kikuta.
