Does anybody know if this album contains the original music to the game F/A (Fire & Attacker)?

F/A is the orginal Japanese name. (Firghter & Attacker being the US one)

I never played that game..
But all the album of the serie "Game Sound Express" contains Original Music from the Arcade. (in this case from the NA-1 Hardware)

I don't think the game is different between the Jap. & Us versions ?
So the music should be the same in both game.

The answer to the question asked more than six years ago is yes, it's the same as in the game but with less fuzzy sound quality.

I don't normally listen to this style of music because it's usually just annoying and extremely repetitious. However, this soundtrack absolutely rocks. I say this without any nostalgia for the game, having never played it. All I've seen is from YouTube videos after hearing it. It's aggressive techno, but fairly tuneful.

The Prodigy's "Everybody in the Place" was an obvious influence for this album. Uses lots of similar sounds and the exact same "Let's go" voice.

Track 14 on YouTube has been blocked by JVC. I wonder what's inside that made this happen?

Listening to that track it does have a very similar sound to early Prodigy (as does the whole album like you said), so I wouldn't be suprised if that's the reason.

Yuzo Koshiro just mentioned on twitter that Prodigy had been an inspiration for him around the time of Streets of Rage 2 (in '92 just like this game) and it made me think of this album again. Makes the connection even more likely.
