The game that takes place in-between the events of Popolocrois 1 and 2, Poporogue for PS1 is often overlooked. So, too, its soundtrack (the fact that there's any stock of the CD left online is proof that people have ignored it). Surprisingly, though, this quirky RPG and its music are probably worth looking into.

Catchy theme song, catchy vocal track at the end, extremely catchy town and dungeon themes? Yes, this old soundtrack really does have it all. It also has huge medleys (track 4, for example, is about 10 minutes long).

Despite being all sequenced music for PS1, the soundtrack to Poporogue is very acoustic. Guitars, pitched percussion, auxiliary percussion (wood blocks and stuff), as well as winds are present in nearly every track. It's a beautiful mix of instrumentation and it works great for this game.

If you want something sort of fun, sort of folk-artsy, this is a good soundtrack to check out. Heck, it's also a good game to check out, if you can get past the dated, "puberty-era" 32-bit graphics.
