"I own the Sega CD versions of Ecco the Dolphin: Tides of Time and the first Ecco. On those game CDs are perfectly playable tracks of all the games music, five tracks of which can be sampled through Amazon.So if you're leary about purchasing this CD, you might want to consider getting both Sega CD games as they might be cheaper in total, and contain a much larger amount of tracks (29 in total, I believe..).The music itself is excellent... The best in the world for a video game.. very atmospheric, and very creative. I could live without the dolphin sounds during the music, but at the same time it doesn't kill me.I hope this helps."

"As a parent of five children, my home is constantly barraged by cheezy music from various video game systems. Ecco: Songs of Time is NOTHING like that music. It transcends the usual, mindless video game "music" with its sophistication and beautiful textures. Spencer Nilsen has managed to compose music that sets a mood, rather than just providing a backdrop for some wild cartoon action on a television screen. I am proud to have Songs of Time as part of my CD collection. Note to video game music composers: buy this CD and use it as a benchmark!"
Lovely music, poor album presentation

"While the Ecco games are not notable for their gameplay the graphics, atmosphere and haunting music have always enchanted, thrilled and chilled me. Spencer Nilsen's etheral music really takes you away during gameplay and puts you right in the primal, beautiful world of Ecco. This album from 1996 however doesn't do the music justice. Instead of giving us many tracks with a couple of loops before gradually fading out each track is a rather rude mash-up of many themes that don't even blend together. Instead they just suddenly jump to a new theme. It's jarring and distracting.
If you want a better presentation just by the Ecco the Dolphin Mega CD and use that instead. The CD doubles as a soundtrack album and gives you loads more tracks with better arrangement. Leave this overpriced product be."
