Away from placing that sound thread I wanted to make this every-day-post-thread on Kuru’s steps to share just AGs Soundtracks that we might have/had never enjoyed while being drawn into game’ playing.
Fairly anyone can see that E&H holds one of the most of the original soundtracks Ever!, I have chosen this enchanting one ‘when I could have chosen differently’ outta of being enchanted by it.
I have no idea who composed E&H, and if he/she was behind other projects for Daedalic as well ,but anyways it seems Daedalic new games OSTs are never good match (but TWW) to E&H Soundtrack. beside the fact they seem to be failing on giving much care for their AGs soundtracks (by using digital sampling, instead of live recording) with every new one from Edna&Harvey; to the great The Whispered World until the most terrible (Soundtrack) one for Memoria, looks like they are trying hard to reduce the game’s budget by excluding as much as they can of the Soundtracks production/expense .
I actually see that Bee-man every time I listen to this great track!
Choosing a track from Imaginarium: Songs from The Neverhood of Terry Scott Taylor is as leaving all the good tracks aside.
every single track of the game has its own uniqueness .
I went with this one which has the most solid feel and sound .. a traditional folk theme (based on C harmonic minor scale) and it was my choice for today ...
looking forward to Armikrog and what Terry Scott would offer.
When does an AG Soundtrack is up to the Hollywood movie’s? ..
when its from The Last Express
A nice mention that modern Classical composer Elia Cmiral gave this in-Game soundtrack when AGs were big, and from there he flew straight to big Hollywood pictures (after working 10 years on ‘TV-Movies’ and ‘Series’) such Ronin (1998) ,Battlefield Earth (2000) Wrong Turn (2003) .
Myst IV: Revelation - Curtains
Someone I know prefer the original track that originally released as a B-side for Gabriel’s single ‘Don’t Give Up’ with Kate Bush , however I see that this (re-recorded song) as soundtrack served Myst just better/fine!.
Oh, draw the blinds
We can shut out the night
Oh, pull up the blankets
Pull the blankets up tight
And there are angels on our curtains
They keep the outside out
And there are lions on our curtains
They lick their wounds
They lick their doubt
We watch them float away
Along with our memories of the day
Reminding me once again to get around to playing The Last Express and the Myst games, and I still haven’t!
Anyways, interesting pieces - thanks for the links
Full Throttle- Chitlins, Whiskey and Skirt a song that sounds so raw to the ears and very cheerful to the heart.
by The Gone Jackals, who made Their album, Bone to Pick (1995) with collaboration of Peter McConnell of LucasArts, to produce the soundtracks of Full Throttle.
The band’s music generally consisted of hard, garage and blues rock…before they were really gone!.
When Robert Holmes was asked if featured songs with the band (Scarlet Furies) Were written specifically for the game he answered that he had recorded most of them many months before, but they just seemed to fold into the story very well. But did write specific lyrics for the main theme to tie to the story.
Anyway as much as I loved Never Going Back but also David’s Theme got me good.
It needs to be in a game.
Recently finished: Four Last Things 4/5, Edna & Harvey: The Breakout 5/5, Chains of Satinav 3,95/5, A Vampyre Story 88, Sam Peters 3/5, Broken Sword 1 4,5/5, Broken Sword 2 4,3/5, Broken Sword 3 85, Broken Sword 5 81, Gray Matter 4/5\nCurrently playing: Broken Sword 4, Keepsake (Let\‘s Play), Callahan\‘s Crosstime Saloon (post-Community Playthrough)\nLooking forward to: A Playwright’s Tale
The game was innovative in that time ;there was a series of rock music videos
by the fictional band Trip Cyclone, which provided the player with hints to solving the game’s multitude of puzzles Jason Lindsey, lead guitarist and vocalist.

Gray Matter has such a fantastic soundtrack. Also, I’ve been listening to so much Scarlet Furies, recently. And bought Bury Me in Symmetry. I especially love all their Gray Matter songs (To Forgive & To Forget (David’s theme), Never Going Back (Sam’s theme), and Safe in Arms). Also, there’s this song - From Her to Him - that I don’t know where it’s from. Would also make a great soundtrack song
Also, they do a mind-blowing version of I Put a Spell on You.
Raleigh is such an amazing singer. She’s just as good live as she is in the studio versions. (Plus, she’s a talented actress, incredibly beautiful and has Robert Holmes and Jane Jensen as her parents, so she’s got it pretty good ).
Anyways, keep the soundtracks coming!
Frank Klepacki Westwood’s favorite composer form legend of Kyrandia book, I , II, III and Blade Runner(will get to that,later), with many others Role-Playing games from The same Dev.
The Legend Of Kyrandia I OST and despite of its old time release it still got the magic and the quality. The music was as good as the story telling of the game ;it follows it perfectly. and still one of the most interesting AG soundtracks that I had heard .
Ah Kyrandia, a great game with a superb soundtrack. Nice pick, Advie
Prodigy ‘The Fat of The Land’ industrial/synthpunk album did really cover a certain time of my life just as any good Soundtrack does with a movie , that was why I am infatuated by Still Life II - Main-Menu Theme.
The game OST is not like its prior’s which was made by the famous Musician Tom Salta, but instead by Babelia Audio agency specialized in the audio design and music composition of video games and web content. But never-the-less the game Soundtrack (in general) was good! even better than the game itself (a big disappointment). and kept me going on with it until it ended.
