My info

Without doubt, this one really rocks. I was proud owner of the only one Turrican CD in former Czechoslovakia. Unfortunately someone has borrowed it from me and never returned it. And I don't have a clue who :)) Well, fortunately, I backed up the the CD in MP3s :))
About the soundtrack - what to say, it's one of the best soundtracks I ever heard, it was released 4 years after Turrican 1 was released, and 2 years after Turrican 2. You can find epic story, best arranged tunes from all three Turricans, and awesome melodies and experience. It's also good that there are not any crappy dance tracks as on other Huelsbeck's CDs from that time :) Simply said, the best game has the best soundrack. [10/10]

  • "Simply one of the best VGM." (by YaroslaF, 25 Jun 2004) [10/10]
    Many years ago I was searching and searching to get this album. And one day my dream came true :)
    Chris Huelsbeck is the best german game music composer and Turrican is his greatest work. It is not usual to hear VGM album with many different tracks which you rate 10/10. I know many great albums with usually one or a few great track(s) and the rest is "the sauce". But Turrican is a exception, this album is loaded with majority of 10/10 tracks.
    The album starts with introduction to the game - the spoken track. Nevermind, it is just the beginning:) Then the MUSIC begins. There are lot of combat music tracks and at the end of album there are also some slow ones. The last track MEDLEY is like resume of all the tracks before.
    I cannot rate this album else than 10/10 and cannot get bored playing it.
    And last information: I have never played the game Turrican. (For the ones who have some favourite CD just for he or she has played the game and want to remember those great times by listening the game music.)
    I hope it was at least a little comprehensible.

    Note: All thoughts above are my own opinions so you haven't to agree with them. But you could take them as an advice and try to listen this album, you'll be surprised ;)
