Dan Lots of great tracks, but I think I still like Lost Floppies better. Favorite track: Main Theme (Richard).

Ross Binden I heard this was released on IRC. After listening to half the album, I already knew I had to have a physical copy.
The entire album is a work of art, and despite not playing Hotline Miami, I enjoyed listening to every minute of it, and I expect I will continue to, again, and again, and again. Favorite track: Force De Frappe (feat. GEM TOS).

Julien Charles Great album - I felt Machine was like a transitionnal album. This one has so many great tracks and is so much better. Take for instance the John Carpenter inspired track J35 Draken - this is simply wonderful. Favorite track: J35 Draken.

about

Force De Frappe is an original and hard-hitting synthwave album based on Dubmood's unused submissions from Hotline Miami 2 as a foundation upon which to build a unique and twisted story about an evil Swedish defence system AI, a French nuclear deterrence program gone bad, and AI-built female androids flying vintage SAAB jet fighters over a dark Gothenburg archipelago in 1981. Fans of the Hotline Miami 2 soundtrack should feel right at home as the entirety of Force De Frappe is heavily influenced by the soundscape and mood of the award-winning soundtracks to both Hotline Miami and its recently-released sequel.

As a quick guide to the album, listeners will enjoy the opening car chase scene, "Älfsborg 1981," where cyber punks hijack a Swedish government fighter pilot android followed by an introduction to the AI-controlled military defense system in "STRIL-60," built by DataSAAB. The SAAB Draken fighters are explored in "J35 Draken," followed by "Att Bygga En Robot," which accompanies a scene in a lab where the protagonists try to save their fallen comrade by turning her into an android. From there, STRIL-60 system becomes self-aware and decides that the best way to gain the complete control but also the trust of the humans still able to shut it down is to stage an attack, provoking NATO and the French to launch such an assault. The rest of the album follows the dog fights in the skies above Europe when SAAB Draken fighters with their android pilots attempt to intercept the incoming French nuclear bombers. The ending is vague but may be more easily interpreted after listening to GEM TOS's lyrics in the last track, "Force De Frappe." The last bonus track on the cassette version also gives a clue on how things end.
