In this installment we’re exploring the soundtrack of an overlooked SNES Action-RPG released in 1994, titled: Brain Lord. It was developed by Produce! in conjunction with a sound group called Opus, and published by Enix for the Super Nintendo (or Super Famicom).
Composed by Masanao Akahori, the game has a totally catchy soundtrack and some truly wonderful moments that were clearly inspired by 80’s Pop and Rock. Join in as we take a step into the town of Arcs with Remeer and friends.

Oh, you guys!! I start talking about playing more SNES OSTs on your show, and you’ve already got it covered! The music in Brain Lord is really good! I hadn’t listened to the soundtrack before your episode, but I’ve got it my queue now. It reminds me a little of Barry Leitch’s work, in that the sound design is pretty uninspiring, but what Suzuki does with the compositions totally makes up for it. He takes ho-hum sounds and makes really good music with them.
