Editor's review by Adam Corn (2019-03-03)

Kenneth Young's original soundtrack for the PSVR platformer Astro Bot Rescue Mission is melodic, old-school game music goodness with a sparkly new finish. On very first listen I found myself not only bobbing my head like a happy fool to the upbeat melodies but also humming them incessantly when it was all over. Matching those upbeat melodies are crisp synths that give classic game synth just the right modern touch, along with extra instrumental accompaniment for the various stages themes ranging from crisp, uplifting electric guitar in tracks like "Follow Me (Into the Storm)" to playfully spooky sampled orchestra in "What Was That? (Scary Cave)" to an irresistible bass groove in "Discotree". Then "I Am Astro Bot" finishes it all off with one last round of crisp synth and electric guitar joined by playful robo-voices in an uber-catchy melody. What a great soundtrack to kick off an action-platformer series with - here's hoping for more.
