EarthBound, also known as MOTHER 2 in Japan, is a role-playing video game developed by Ape Inc. and HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo on Super Nintendo/Super Famicom in 1994. The game's composers are Keiichi Suzuki, Hirokazu Tanaka, Hiroshi Kanazu, and Toshiyuki Ueno (with a vocal cameo of Shigesato Itoi on the track "OK desu ka?"). The game also received a port entitled MOTHER 1+2 on Game Boy Advance in 2003.

The 7 GRAND MOTHER album is partially dedicated to this game.

Overview Edit

EarthBound (known as Mother 2 in Japan) is the sequel to the NES J-RPG Mother (later known in the west as EarthBound Beginnings). The game distingushises itself from other J-RPGs by its modern western-influenced setting. The game eventually received a sequel called Mother 3.

The game tells the story of Ness, a young boy from the country of Eagleland. One fateful night, a meteorite crashes near his house. While investigating it, he discovers a fly from the future named Buzz Buzz who warns him about an alien menace named Giygas who is slowly taking the world over. In his quest to save the world he will discover his latent psychic powers and meet three other gifted children: Paula, Jeff, and Poo; but his awful neighbor Pokey, already subjugated by Giygas, stands in their way.

The soundtrack is still considered one of the best SNES soundtracks and is praised for its melancholic songs, jazzy tunes, and the use of odd and unsettling instruments which perfectly complement the tone of the game. However, its American pop-rock influences were at times borderline plagiarism, with some songs bearing an uncanny resemblance with famous copyrighted songs; as the matter was never fully addressed by Nintendo, it is rumored to have hold the release of the game on the Virtual Console. Music also has a very important role in the game, as the player's goal is to find several parts of a scattered melody.

Album Edit

7 GRAND MOTHER is a bonus album released on May 8th, 2016 featuring rips from the MOTHER trilogy as well as a few songs from Undertale. The majority of the tracks present in the album are from Earthbound / MOTHER 2, including the cover, and are uploaded in the channel.
