Critical Music 20: Sellout!

June 12th, 2010 . by Josh

As mentioned in the prior episode of Critical Music I am now on a official break from the project but that doesn’t mean it’s going to sit idle! This episode brings our first guest into the Critical Music world and it also happens to be one of my favorite all time podcaster mik from The Fanboys Lunchcast!

I’d like to thank mik for stepping in and doing a episode of Critical Music and helping us out while we take a break from the project. Please do us a favor and show him some support and check out The Fanboys because well, they’re great!

April 25th, 2010 . by Josh

Well folks here it is, Kyle’s very first episode of Critical Music! I for one was excited when he first approached me about doing a episode on his own.

Music in this episode: Eternal Darkness, Zone of the Enders 2, Final Fantasy X, Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill 3, Mirror’s Edge, Advent Rising, Godhand, Sonic CD, Final Fantasy VIII, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Demon’s Souls, God of War 3, Bayonetta.

Critical Music 17: Faces Melted

March 22nd, 2010 . by Josh

Two releases back to back you ask? Yes! With this being the week of PAX East I wanted to make sure I got this months Critical Music out on time and seeing as I’ll be pretty busy, I needed to get it out fairly early in the week. As I mentioned on the episode, this will probably be the least popular Critical Music to date as it’s very metal influenced and I just get the feeling that won’t fly with most people, but we’ll see.

Music in this episode: The Megas, The Minibosses, The Protomen, Powerglove, Vomitron, Entertainment System, The Advantage, NESKimos, Year 200X, Nerd Army, The Smash Brothers, Stage 3-1

Do yourself a favor and buy the albums these bands put out, they’re really good!

Critical Music Live!

March 20th, 2010 . by Josh

This probably won’t end up on iTunes as it was merely a quick experiment that turned into nearly two hours of recording while talking to good friend of the show chiahippo. But if you want to listen to the Critical Music Live experiment then here you go.


Critical Music 16: Requests Defeated

February 25th, 2010 . by Josh

Though at the start of the show I said I may not get this out on time. It’s because I didn’t think I would find enough music in time but luckily I remembered all of mik’s requests over at the forums and that gave me enough to push it over the edge!

Also the stupid id3 tag didn’t want to update for some reason so in the track listing please note that #2 should be Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Music in this episode: Descent II, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Time Lord, Heavy Rain, Endless Ocean, Killer Instinct, Lost Odyssey, Gyruss, VVVVVV, Persona 3, Policenauts, Bust A Groove, Dark Void, Secret of Mana, Painkiller.
