Album Review: Various Artists - AG Drive - Original Soundtrack (8/10)

cover170x170Remember when someone told you that
 music and fashion run in 10-year cycles? 
The longer I’m in the music industry the
 more I see how true that theory is. The
 soundtrack for top-rated IOS video game, 
AG Drive, is a solidly produced work featur
ing music clearly inspired by the ‘80s. Sprinkled with a dusting of mid 2000s electro, and littered with a few vocoders, the soundtrack sounds like a Tron-ish styled landscape. The soundtrack is well-written, which should be an interesting listen for gamers, but I don’t see it getting a lot of play outside of the game itself. –Scott Binder
