Blur Bomber by Mega Ran and Mister Wilson.

So someone actually made a rap album based on the Sonic/Mega Man crossover comic story? Sonic? Mega Man? Rap? That's like three of my favorite things right there. Mega Ran and Mister Wilson both rap over mixed up Sonic and Mega Man game tracks, in the first one for instance the two rap, each one in the persona of Sonic and Mega Man respectively about how they will defeat the other in a rap battle style. The album tells the story of the crossover through the tracks and remains reasonably true to it. It would be easy to dismiss this as just a novelty album, because it kinda is let's face facts, but this is damn solid underground rap too. The rhymes are clever, the flow is solid, it's just very well done, and it easily could have been a cheap cash in. A few of the tracks like "Love is..." are pretty weak and didn't do much for me, but most of the is just great.

I bought the CD off of their site, because I prefer to have a physical hard copy of things, but while the CD won't ship until January, it came with a free download so I got to listen to it that way and I gotta tell you I've played it over and over several times since then. If you're a fan of Mega Man or Sonic you should definitely get this. And if you know someone who is a fan of either of the two blue heroes this would make a perfect Christmas gift.

And while we're on the subject of the Mega Man/Sonic crossover if you haven't already you should check out my reviews of parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12.
