Giant Bomb is a website about video games. The Unofficial GB Album Club is about listening to albums. "What if," we said word for word in our Discord, "we combined these two concepts and we pick albums from artists we discovered in video game soundtracks???" And thus, the theme for cycle 3 was born: Pick an artist you discovered from a video game soundtrack and choose one of their albums. Any of their albums. Doesn't even have to include the song from said soundtrack!
This may sound like a somewhat limiting theme. But consider GTA and open world games in general (I might be picking something from BELOVED video game True Crime: Streets of NY as that game's soundtrack is outstanding), Tony Hawk, racing soundtracks, sports game soundtracks, Hotline Miami and the general flood of synth artists that came from other games wanting to sound like Hotline Miami (this is not a dig!), and plenty of other things I couldn't think of.
Looking forward to this one.
