I never bought any of the collections. I prefer simply dusting off the old Genesis/Saturn/Dreamcast for the occasional boost of nostalgia. I mean, I'm only missing the Game Gear titles and Sonic the Fighters (Dreamcast).
Wait, you don't mean Spax3, who did the CNASN Game Reviews, do you? I thought he quit YouTube a long time ago. If I remember correctly, he seemed like a decent Sonic fan. Hell, he put Sonic Heroes on his top ten Sonic games list.
When did anyone mention music?
Anyway, my views are the complete opposite - for the most part I slightly prefer the English Sonic CD soundtrack (with several exceptions), and the Genesis version of the 3D Blast Soundtrack, particularly the Rusty Ruin theme.
Pretty much, my favorite Sonic soundtracks are:
1: Sonic CD (Japanese and English pretty much tied)
2: Sonic Colors
3: Sonic 2
4: Sonic Unleashed
5: Sonic 3
But pretty much all the Sonic soundtracks are awesome.

That's what I'm saying too. They're like some terrible trance presets from like Nexxus or FM 8 or something, NOTHING like Sonic should sound.
I remember Chibi-Tech was being all douchey and saying something to the effect of "Sonic Chronicles is proof Richard Jacques can't do anything without the power of his studio" because the soundtrack sucked. Well for one, that coming from a 30-something crossdresser who makes chiptunes (and thinks that to be the best style of music in the world) is a RIOT! Secondly Richards Jacques only made a few songs, the majority was composed by Steve Sim. Still sucks, but it's not RJ's fault.
Sonic Battle had a great deal of unexplored potential. Just like Sonic the Fighters.
Have I talked about my idea for an Archie Sonic based fighting game? Man I could just ramble on and on about that idea.
Sonic the Hedgehog was the main reason I bothered playing the Genesis during my childhood. I still love the 2D games, and I would play my cousin's Sonic Adventure demo for the Dreamcast every time I visited her house.
Who has listened/owns the Video Games Live version of the Staff Credits? I remembered going to Video Games Live when they were in Birmingham. When they started that piece and the choir sang "SEGA!", I felt my heart was going to explode! And then they played Spring Yard Zone and my head bobbed to the music! I had to get that Level Two CD the moment it came out!
