Sammus has upgraded her armor and unleashed Another M, a new album of Metroid based Hip Hop. Clever rhymes and an adventurous story are fitting for one of the best video game series in history. Next time I play Metroid: Other M, I'll just play Sammus' Another M during the cut scenes.
I can't get enough of the smooth rhymes of tracks like "Brinstar" and album closer "That Feeling (Beat the Game)". Although it's the heavy hitting tracks like "Power-Ups" and "Smash Bruhs" that solidify the album into an epic adventure.
The well produced album really takes things to another level. The deep dark beats lurking beneath Sammus' rhymes and the impeccable use of Metroid sound effects provide a lonely depth to the album, and do Hip Tanaka and Kenji Yamamoto proud.
It's clear that Sammus understands the aesthetics of the Metroid series and those who have produced music for it (much like my beloved Metriod Metal, now if only they could collaborate somehow...). I certainly hope we get another Another M from Sammus in the future.
I personally recommend you download the album for $6 or grab a physical CD for $8, both via Bandcamp.
