Cobalt EP Review

629311331-1 tmb

Happy turkey devouring day, you Americans! Here we have the EP for the game Cobalt by anosou. This album consists entirely of the main theme, trailer theme and remixes of the main theme by quite a few notables in the indie game music community.

To start off, I’ll let everyone know that when it comes to remix albums, I judge the remixes harder than the original song as I believe a remix should bring something to the song that the original doesn’t have. Also, I’m gonna try a individual song rating for this review as I was thinking of adding those in with my reviews. Let me know what you think of the idea by leaving a comment below or tweeting me @TIG_Tunes. With that said, let’s do the review.

Ultimate Songs From The Pit Review

I’ve been listening to Shael Riley from OCRemix for a long time, so long I think I was in juniour high. When I found out he came out with a game inspired rock and chip tune album, I knew I had to review it.

The album is called Ultimate Songs from the Pit. It was done with Shael Riley and his Mortal Kombat inspired band The Double Ice Backfire. the album also includes vocal talents of Schaffer the DarklordBrian MazzaferriMega Ran, and Billy the Fridge.

To The Moon Original Soundtrack Review

2874528342-1 tmb

When I went to review this album, I was feeling pretty pissed off at the world and just ready to tell anyone to F’ off. When the world starts over whelming me and I get hit with what is probably considered sensory overload, everything just feels like crap to me. When I started listening to this album, I immediately felt better.

The album I’m referring to is the Soundtrack of To The Moon.

Ravenmark: Scourge of Estellion Original Soundtrack Review

1615059490-1 (1)tmb

…And we’re back, just in time for 11.11.11! As you may have seen before, I mentioned the Ravenmark: Scourge of Estellion soundtrack  by Josh Whelchel was coming out today, so I’m bringing you the review on the same day!

First thing you’ll notice with the album is that it has a very symphonic feel to pretty much the entire album. But, unlike the usual game with a soundtrack that sounds like it was ripped straight from ‘Medival Epic Fantasy Movie X’ this symphonic soundtrack actually sounds like it was made for a game. And that is probably one of the best compliments you can get when attempting an album like this.

Blocks That Matter Soundtrack Review

Here is the second game sound track in the Voxatron humble indie bundle. This soundtrack was done for the game Blocks that Matter by a fellow named Morusque.

Off the bat you’ll notice a more minimalistic feel to most of the songs with various blips and sounds thrown in. A lot of the  songs mostly rely on grooves to support the minimalistic feel to the songs.

The Binding of Isaac Soundtrack

This week I’ve got somewhat of a theme lined up for TIG Tunes. I’m doing Humble Indie Bundle Soundtracks from the Voxatron bundle and also games from the Indie Royale bundle. I’m sure everyone knows about the Humble Indie Bundle by now, but the Indie Royale is the new kid on the block. Either way, they both have some pretty damn fine games, and some pretty damn fine music. So let’s get this started.

Beautiful Lifestyle by George & Jonathan


Everyone lately has been posting about this album, and since I did a review of their last album, I probably should do this one as well despite it not being really indie game music related.

The good:  I’m pretty sure I like this album over their last one. This album has quite high quality sounding tunes that scream well done productions. It also has tons of ear pleasing textures throughout basically the whole album. If you like funk style chip tunes with a heavy emphasis on drum and bass this’ll probably be an album you love.

TIGMN is Becoming TIG Tunes

I’ve decided to change the name of this site to something a little more friendly to people out of the know, so I will be slowly making changes to from referring to the site as TIGMN to officially calling it TIG Tunes.Various things like the logo and references will be changed over. The URL www.tigtunes.com is registered and functional already. I have a new twitter that will be set up strictly for updates called @TIG_Tunes and I’ll keep @TIGMN for chatting and what not. Also on irc.esper.net we have an official channel called #TIGTunes that you can chill out in. So watch out for lots of coming changes and don’t forget to tell your friends. ;D
