Astro's Playroom
Original Video Game Soundtrack


Composer: Kenneth C M Young
Label: Sony Classical
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 12 March 2021

Sony Music Masterworks releases Astro's Playroom (Original Video Game Soundtrack) with music by multi-award-winning composer Kenneth C M Young. Pre-loaded on every PlayStation PS5 console Astro's Playroom sees Astro and his crew whisk you away on a magical exploration of the PS5 console. Explore four worlds, each one showcasing innovative gameplay using the new and features of the PS5 DualSense wireless controller...

Kenneth C M Young returns to the Astrobot franchise to deliver some incredibly immersive and memorable themes for Astro's Playroom. Young provided the soundtrack to 2018's Astro Bot Rescue Mission - one of the standout PSVR games (designed exclusively for Sony's Playstation 4's VR).

Once again, Young provides quirky, upbeat, memorable, catchy electronic tunes that get stuck in your head. One of the aspects that made the first game in the series so engaging was the music, and it's equally as important in this sequel.

The album consists of 20 tracks (1 hr, 13 min, 41 sec) and it's sure to be a hit with Astro's many fans, be they young or old. As soundtracks go it's got everything: action, suspense, quirky, fun themes and pieces that you'll be tapping your feet to - 'CRT-Rex' is particularly hard to resist. And if you want music that could so easily be an electronic pop track, 'SSD Speedway (Powerup & Boss)' has it all, including an impressive choral burst.

Another cracking album that will bring a huge smile to your face.
