Reviews

Konami's Kukeiha Club serves up another sizzling shooter soundtrack.

Reader review by Adam Page

In the great tradition of power-rock comes another awesome pump-you-up soundtrack from Konami, belonging to the arcade edition of Salamander 2. For those who are unfamiliar with the series, Salamander is known to us as Life Force. While some of the melodies in this soundtrack ("Power Of Anger", "Planet Ratis", "Theme Of The Gorem", "Thunderbolt", and maybe a couple more) will be recognizable to players of the NES version of Life Force, most of the songs are completely original.

There is not a single slow song on this CD - every track bursts with rock and techno excitement. The emphasis is clearly placed on vigorously percussive rhythms and energetic bass, but the melodies are never so subdued that you can't hum along... and keep humming them even when the CD is over. The sound quality is also excellent, showing off the advancements that have been made in arcade sound over the last few years. It's a no-brainer kids, just about any game music fan will enjoy this intense excursion into the galaxies beyond.
