Cover albums dedicated to the Commodore 64 home computer is nothing new and countless are the remixes and reinterpretations of game soundtracks floating around on ye olde interweb. As fabulous as the integrated SID chip still is, chip music seems to remain a niche style mainly catering to us rapidly aging nostalgics who spent our youth in its company (mind you, some fanatics still keep their machines on life support) eagerly awaiting the old datasette player to finish loading. Stefan Poiss confesses to be one of us in the liner notes and goes on to pay his tribute to the good old days with a set of infectious remakes of some of the many iconic game soundtracks, but what truly makes R.E.T.R.O shine is the personal journey found in between. Witty and mellow songs with heartwarming wordplay such as “now I know I’m just an emulation” or “will you still love me when I'm sixty-four?” The album ends on two moody pieces that remind the listener to look forward after all. The music of both mind.in.a.box and the Sound Interface Device are not for everyone but if you are in the target group chances are you will get an extreme kick out of this remarkable little album.
