Editor's review by Adam Corn (2020-04-04)

This second soundtrack in the Yooka-Laylee series is also the second to feature contributions by ex-Rare composers David Wise and Grant Kirkhope, along with a couple of new faces. Even with an abundance of acoustic instrumentation it's at its heart a traditional light-hearted, gamey platformer OST, with just a bit of a funky edge thanks to a healthy helping of bass guitar. It doesn't have any single tracks that stand out at the level of this year's other game synth standouts Astro Bot and Etrian Odyssey Nexus (though "Windmill Way - Windy" and "Conveyor Chaos - Crosswire" are strong contenders) but there's about an hour of very solid game music to enjoy. I've also found it surprisingly good music for focusing (in my case coding) to - perhaps even my favorite of the year in that regard.
