From Soule to Sonic, we're jumping off the smooth and atmospheric ship and spin dashing our way toward the fast-paced sounds of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. Growing up, Sonic had been a vice of mine for years. It wasn't until later on that I realized my biggest connection with the game was with it's soundtracks.
