I was just playing Egypt 3 (aka Egyptian Prophecy) and noticing how nice and easy the music is, which reminded me of Cryo. I remember that the Cryo people who made Atlantis 2 and Lost Eden actually released the game soundtrack on cd which were really nice.

Have you played any other games which contained music so good that you feel like buying the soundtrack?

Psychonauts. well I actually DID buy a soundtrack. smile Music in games really grew since the old times. I'm not a huge fan of hollywood-like composers. I much more appreciate subtle but ingenious music by Peter McConnell, Marc Morgan or Kevin Manthei. And soundtrack from Zork: nemesis is still on my almost daily play-list. smile

Sierra included a love song duet for King's Quest VI, "Girl in the Tower". Cheesy song but great work in those days, reminiscent of Disney's love songs.

Myst soundtrack - am playing it now. These aren't advntr games but the music with PS games is outstanding. Like battlescene music, so indepth and keeps right up with the battle. Especially Viking Battle for Asgard. Also prologue in Devil May Cry.

I have mp3s of Space Quest 1 theme, Secret of Monkey Island theme, Guybrush singing "Wooden Leg, Restless Heart", the three pirates and Guybrush singing "A Pirate I was Meant to Be", vocal and instrumental versions of the "Ballad of Freddy Pharkas", "Ballad of the End of Freddy Pharkas" and "Cell Block Love," which is taken from one of the Leisure Suit Larry games but it is about Lytton police officer Sonny Bond and former prostitute Marie Wilkans from Police Quest.

I extracted "Ballad of the End of Freddy Pharkas" from the game myself and sent a copy to Al Lowe. He told me in email that he didn't have one.

"I waive my right to silence, here's the statement that I'll sign:
I do confess to lovin' you and wantin' you fer mine!
Is it so wrong, a workin' girl who loves a man in blue?
I hope I never make parole from Cell Block Love with you."

I'm with Yankee and Phoebe: the Myst music is my favorite, particularly the first Myst.

I've bought soundtracks for some of the Myst games, as well as The Neverhood, Sam and Max and a LucasArts collection with selections from Grim Fandango, The Dig, and the Monkey Island games. I've downloaded a number of other soundtracks as well.

I've also really enjoyed music from:

The Syberia games
The Gabriel Knight games
Broken Sword 1 (particularly the soaring intro)
The 7th Guest
Agon 2 (the dulcimer tune in the second half)

Ooh. A thread I can jump into. I loved the music in Discworld Noir. Perfect mix of old timey dark jazz with a dash of fantasy. I remember reading about a way to rip the music from the CD but I've long since lost it. frown

Dave, welcome to the thread...

Yep, Discworld Noir had some great jazz in it. As did Faust, which Jenny mentioned earlier.

Also some noteworthy scores in the 'dark side' games, like Divine Divinity and Planescape: Torment... and Fallout!

Cheers,

Even though it is a casual game, the music in Hidden Expedition: Amazon has great music also.
