Podcast: Top Scores, Volume 3

leave a comment »


Video game soundtracks transcend time to the right audience.  No matter how many you have heard, there’s always that track that escapes you or is just on the tip of your tongue that you can’t recognize.  Whether it’s nostalgia or a killer cut you’re hearing for the first time, the community and our hosts Fred and Jam have a great show of video game music this time around.  Missed the first two volumes?  Check out Top Scores, Vol. 1 and Top Scores, Vol. 2!

Please Note: Those that listened to the live show may have noticed a quality drop in the stream from time to time.  As a result, all music tracks were re-edited in as masters in this final episode.  You should notice no quality drops.
