Agnus (memory control),
Paula Agnus Denise - Best of Amiga and CD32 Video Game Music is a compilation
of remastered and remixed videogame soundtracks
from the Commodore Amiga,
one of the most popular home computers of the early 1990s.
Translated into todays studio recordings, it celebrates the catchy melodies
of legendary games which have been released
during 1989-1994. Numerous classics are waiting to be rediscovered, such as
Shadow of the Beast,
Pinball Dreams, Turrican 2 and 3, Alien Breed, Lotus Turbo Challenge 2, Cannon Fodder, Speedball 2, Hired
Guns or Battle Squadron.
The CD comes in a
neat Super Jewelcase and contains 19 songs (about 79 minutes), five of the
recordings being previously unreleased. Its name Paula Agnus Denise
originates from the
custom chips, that give the Amiga her unique
features (second picture
on the left). Composers featured on the album include Chris Hülsbeck, Tim Wright, Allister
Brimble, David Whittaker, Barry Leitch and many others. Being mainly electronic, the mix of music styles ranges from acoustic, hip-hop and rock to trance,
just as in the original games.
Complementing the music, the included 12-pages booklet brings back memories with
its screenshots and short descriptions of the featured games.
