Triple Threat Sonic Heroes Vocal Trax
Record label: Wave Master

Triple Threat Sonic Heroes Vocal Trax is a mini-album featuring the vocal songs to the multiplatform game of the same name. Similar to Songs With Attitude and Cuts Unleashed, it is the first of two releases dedicated to the music of Heroes, followed up by the two-disc Complete Trinity. This is also the first Sonic soundtrack to be released in-house on the Waver Master label, Marvelous Entertainment having previously been the exclusive distributor of Sonic-related recordings. Rounding out the set list are the six songs originally released on Songs With Attitude, timed to promote the then-new port of Sonic Adventure DX to the GameCube.
