In terms of its soundtrack, Skullgirls is the seedy bar from noir films. It’s the gothic horror flick Dracula crawled out of. It’s the high-octane, world-spanning action-adventure movie you always wanted. Somehow, this marvelous indie’s OST captures every one of those distinctive flavors and swirls them together into a musical smoothie front-loaded with unbridled panache. The snarky saxophones, popping trumpets, operatic singers, electric guitars, electronic melodies and smooth piano notes somehow blend into a series of tracks that, while not totally thematically consistent, are all consistently awesome and befitting of their in-game surroundings.
