You've got the crunchy audio texture of a Neo-Geo soundtrack down pat, but the composition of each song has a strong groove to it in its own right. Even after listening to the music for Shock Troopers, I'm getting a completely different aesthetic in mind from these tunes. I hope someone comes along to make fitting animations to go along with these loops.

Despite the wealth of fantastic music found within the Neo Geo library, Shock Troopers still manages to successfully stand out on its own with songs that represent the Run 'n' Gun subgenre arguably better than any other. It's a damned shame how woefully underrepresented the music is by VG remixers, let alone by someone going the extra mile in making a brand new soundtrack inspired by the series. This is some truly impressive stuff, HOTS.

Of the three, my favorite is the first one, titlescreen, but there's clearly no wrong choice among them.

Titlescreen: YEAH LET'S DO THIS!!!
Character Select: Chilling and breakbeating while making a decision.
Credits: Deep introspection.

Nice little selection you got here Hotstuff! A few more of these and you'd genuinely have a soundtrack to a game. :D

I'd say that I can't decide if I like Titlescreen or Character Select the best, but credits isn't far behind either. It'd depend on what mood I was in at the time, but credit would make for some good relaxation music.

Keep on creating dude!
