Mazedude‘s The American Album
is an album of 15 video game music arrangements of material exclusively
created by American video game music composers. The album is Mazedude’s
first, and was conceived as an alternative to the overwhelming
attention given to Japanese composers by video game music fans.
Having been released to the public weeks before its scheduled December
1 release date, the album also enjoyed a spotlight at OC ReMix
coinciding with the posting of the Commander Keen: The Armageddon Machine ReMix “Slick Rippin Keen.” According to Mazedude, Slick Rippin Keen “has been acclaimed as the ‘catchiest’ track off the album,” arranging Bobby Prince’s “Make It Tighter.”

The album’s website features a feedback area
where, alongside fan commentary, several of the composers honored on
The American Album have already expressed their appreciation including
Jack Wall, Tommy Tallarico, Jeremy Soule & Peter McConnell, as well
as Doom lead designer John Romero, as it continues to pick up recognition.

In light of working on The American Album for over a
year and offering the finished product for free, Mazedude has solicited
for donations at any comfortable level from fans who enjoy the album.
Along with feedback, those can also be made via the album’s homepage.
