Album Review

Everything connected to the film adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley's comic Scott Pilgrim vs. the World was made with loving attention to detail, so it’s no surprise that the soundtrack to the movie’s tie-in video game is just as well crafted. Of course, most movies don’t lend themselves to video games as well as Scott Pilgrim vs. the World — which uses video game jargon and imagery to demonstrate how Scott grows as a person as he takes on the seven evil exes of his crush Ramona Flowers — and fewer still films provide such a distinct aesthetic for a game’s music. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game is a side-scrolling fighter rendered in beautifully old-school 8-bit graphics, and the music follows suit. The game’s developers hired 8-bit band Anamanaguchi to provide the music, and they serve up hyperkinetic tracks that sound like they’ve been hiding on an NES cartridge for a quarter century. While the adorable “Another Winter” and “Suburban Tram” throw in some guitars and live drums for an indie rock twist, most of these songs are pure chiptune goodness, particularly “Sushi Box,” “Maki Ya,” and “Bollywood,” which capture the frenzied pace, rapid-fire arpeggios, and wild pitch-bending of classic 8-bit music. Indeed, “Twin Dragons,” “Technoman,” and “Subboss Theme” nod even more firmly to the game and soundtrack’s inspirations, reaffirming just how much knowledge and affection Anamanaguchi and the game’s creators have for the culture that spawned Scott Pilgrim. Almost as entertaining as the game itself, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game’s music will delight gamers, 8-bit aficionados, and fans of Scott Pilgrim’s extended universe.

Customer Reviews

Incredibly Mystical!

I have played the game and I have purchased and listened to all of Anamanaguchi's albums, and I must say that this is a fine addition to anyone's musical library in the chiptune scene. Every track brings a wonderful sense of nostalgia dating back when my generation only had Nintendo to pass the days with 8-bit entertainment. I love it and I would highly recommend this album and artist to anyone in my generation who owned a Game Boy and/or Nintendo Entertainment System.

How Can You Not Like This?

This music makes me feel like I'm young again, and anything is possible, and the world is a place full of light and small joys.

WOW!

Although this is an amazing soundtrack for a video game, it manages to stand on its own as a full album. I do wish some of the tracks were a little bit longer, even if it meant some loops in there as if it was in the game, but that's fine anyway considering I listen to all my playlists on loop anyway, so scrabling these 24, yes a whoping 24, tracks over and over will never get boring. Great Album!
