5.0 out of 5 stars Videogames for your ears 2 Dec 2008
58 pence a song? Total bargain - cheaper than the new Killers album, and a million, million gigabytes better. Written by nerds, but better than N.E.R.D.; each track is a real gem, but track eight really sparkles. 7/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it just for track 8 1 Dec 2008
While most of the CD is pretty good, track 8 stands out by a mile. The songwriting genius on Derek Williams' "Let's Play Video Games" is of a stunning quality. Much has been said of great songwriters such as Paul McCartney but he totally sucks in comparison. Derek's music is life alteringly brilliant. Even more astounding is that he produces something equally amazing each week for his segment on One Life Left. If you don't get one of the thousand CDs of this that are available (though only 939 left as I write this) your life will be dull and meaningless. Sorry but them's the facts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop playing games! 1 Dec 2008
Only to play this in your console of choice. Absolutely brilliant tracks from start to finish, evocative of games, inspired by games, made of games.
Tracks range from glitch-pop via rap, acoustic, ambient to techno. There's something for all tastes and suitable for accompanying all games, as seems to be the overall ambition.
Add in the exclusivity of the tracks to this compilation, and the limited pressing run and this album becomes a must have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good fun. 11 Dec 2008
Recently I have been really getting into video game music and so when I saw this I had to buy it.

All of the tracks are very good but a couple really stood out for me. The first track is fantastic and is a good sign of what's to come with the rest of the album. My favourite however has to be track 7: Oil Ocean. It is a very modern remake of the theme to Oil Ocean Zone from Sonic 2 which is probably my favourite game of all time.

Some of the tracks are instrumental and others are songs but all good in their own way.

Overall a really decent album which is just very good fun to listen to.

Hopefully it will inspire you to look for some indie games on the web which contain brilliant music similar to some of the tracks here. There are plenty of them out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Graphics aren't bad either... 1 Dec 2008
By Jonman
The One Life Left podcast is irreverant, puerile, unproffessional and ludicrous. How they managed to pull their finger out and actually produce something tangible and enjoyable is an achievement in itself.

Graphics: 7/10
Sound: 7/10
Playability: 7/10
Wrongheadedness: 7/10
Lastability: 7/10
