Listen to people explain why LEC music is great 27 Apr, 2020 / 11 comments

Its been a while since the last Mojo podcast so to tide you over you might enjoy listening to the Super Marcato Bros video game music podcast. They dont have 4 guys arguing about which version of Loom is the best, but as podcasts go its pretty good.

Each week they analyse what makes the music in a particular game so great. To save you the trouble of searching here are some episodes that are of particular interest to Mojo readers:

Monkey Island 3 & 4
Monkey Island 1
Monkey Island 2
Sam and Max Hit the Road
Interview with Peter McConnell - his Lucasarts music
Interview with Peter McConnell - his post-Lucasarts music

    What I’m learning is that there’s apparently always been lots of LucasArts related news out there, but we just needed to global pandemic to have the spare time to find it all.

    To add something from the other end of the spectrum. I love the Monkey Island music, but I know/understand nothing about music, so it was fun for me to listen to two people who also love it talk about the soundtracks while (seemingly to me) knowledgeable about music

    Man, those two are really dull. Stating the obvious ALL the time, there's actually not much to pull from these podcast, let alone their crappy research. I just hope that "The Soundtrack Show" will eventually tackle the Monkey Island series. After all David W. Collins is working for Lucasfilm (and was involved in the MI Special Editions).

    I would like actually to hear which version of Loom is the best. Of the little that I know of Loom, the updated graphics version(s) dropped the close-ups? Is that all? I'd love a write up about it if you could point me to it. It's one of the few Lucas games I haven't played



    The EGA version.
