Spicy Wolf I didn't think there was any way to improve upon the work of Keiichi Okabe and Keigo Hoashi in the Automata soundtrack, yet here we are. I still have goosebumps from the harmonies used at the end of this rendition of Voice of No Return. Kudos to Rozen and Reven for knocking it out of the park again. Favorite track: Voice of NO Return.

Tracey I remember idling my character in various parts of the map just so I could listen to the music (Pascal's village, recon base, fairgrounds, ...).
If you could write a love letter to this video game's soundtrack, this would probably be it. Favorite track: City Ruins (Shade).

David Crow I have no words for how much I love this album other than, thank you, and I very much appreciate. Favorite track: Voice of NO Return.

about

NieR: Become as Gods takes ROZEN+REVEN back to NieR: Automata. Much like the fast-adapting machines in the game, the two artists have leveled up their production since the days of their first foray with NieR: Glory to Mankind. Their sound here is sometimes darker, more mature, and overall more polished, thanks in large part to the wealth of collaborators they've brought in.

Within these eleven new covers, you'll hear the duo's hybrid orchestral-pop sound that blends heavy-hitting strings and brass, stark choir, textures of winds and synths, electric guitar, and a plethora of vocals from REVEN. The live orchestra sections were recorded by Sofia Session Orchestra and Choir in Sofia, Bulgaria, including a traditional Bulgarian Choir on several tracks. The result is an intense trip back through the world of the game, but whether this constitutes Ending B or perhaps Ending C, D, or E is up to interpretation.
