 Galbatron - Sophistication
 OpenMSX 0.14.0 (vgm_rec script)

A product of the Dutch MSX scene and one of the
few to ever be released in Japan (through the
TAKERU vending machines), "D.A.S.S." features a
soundtrack that makes good use of the
pre-programmed synths that composers using the
cheap MSX-Music add-on were stuck with. It's
too bad, then, that the game itself is a bland
M.U.S.H.A. clone, except for its insane and
overwritten storyline (found in the opening).
Oh, and because there were no complete
playthrough videos of the game at the time I
recorded this pack, I had to play through the
game myself to identify where each song is
used. Given the game's absurd difficulty, you
can imagine this was a test of patience.

The game also came with a cassette tape,
"Sophistication", done by the "Galbatron" duo
formed in part by the game's composer, with
very 80s remixes of music from the game. It is
from this tape that I got the names for most of
the songs in the game. It was later rereleased
on CDBaby as a digital download and you can
purchase it for USD$6.99 from the URL above.
