Liner Notes VI: Double Dragon Neon is calling me, calling me

(Editor’s note: From Final Fight to Maximum Carnage, everyone’s got at least one videogame tune stuck in their heads. Enter Liner Notes: a Pixelitis feature in which our writers discuss their favorite videogame soundtracks. In this week's entry, Editor Patrick Kulikowski speaks highly of Jake Kaufman's Double Dragon Neon soundtrack.)

After celebrating the revival of Double Dragon two weeks ago with a look back at the fantastic soundtrack to Double Dragon II, my eyes, hands, and ears proceeded to be graced by the delight that is the recently-released XBLA/PSN title Double Dragon Neon and its stupendous music.

Back-to-back Double Dragon Liner Notes? You better believe it. WayForward Technologies’ first foray into the Double Dragon universe brought with it a fantastic score that has easily become one of the best game soundtracks of the year.

So don your power glove and get that pencil ready to rewind some audio cassettes: we’re about to relive the glowing ’80s. (Culture, Double Dragon: Neon, Jake Kaufman, PS3, Wayforward Technologies, Xbox 360)

I have to admit, the soundtrack is poppin'!
I find myself at times being directed by the Power Glove alot, just because I'm listening to the music, Lol.

& not to 'take' from Double Dragon's glory, but I'd sure like this team to work on reviving Streets of Rage...
