I like both parts of this track a good bit, both the lighter sound in the first six minutes and the heavier, guitar-driven two minutes at the end. Both do a good job of evoking a (post)modern, technological, maybe even jacked-in setting. The track loops fairly well, though there is a second or two of silence at the end that you’ll want to trim. The problem is that the two parts of the piece don’t flow together well. The transition between the two parts is fairly abrupt, and the two segments don’t feel the same. I would use the first six minutes for something like a race against time, perhaps while the PCs are being chased or are trying to extract information from a computer system under a strict time limit; the last two minutes would do for a combat or action scene—but I wouldn’t switch the two. The overall effect is fine when you’re just listening for pleasure, but would disrupt an RPG session, I think.

This track sounds like it fell out of an 80s movie, which is appropriate for a cyberpunk game. Keyboard electronica, an ominously pounding drum machine, and wailin' electric guitars. It leans toward cheese, and at first I was a bit disappointed because I wanted something harder-edged. Then I realized that, according to most classic cyberpunk literature, this is what the music really should sound like. The genre is sort of 1980s retro-futurism at this point, so those influences should be apparent. The biggest rockers in a cyberpunk world won't be the punk poets with deep musical artistry spewing forth social commentary; they'll be corporate product, spewing out formulaic riffs to lull the masses into pop-happy daydream trances. This track does that, and upon repeated listening I think it does so knowingly.
