@DynaLem: for the additional music track, you listed Tim 1 again ;) I checked the intended one out, though, and it's pretty nice!
I don't think I'm a fan of the Awesome music from this game.

Also: were the themes from the VGASPEC levels taken from other games or were they made for Lemmings?

Thanks, fixed the link! :)

The themes from the VGASPEC levels...I'm not actually sure if they were taken from other games. They sound like remixes of the originals.

I love the drum beats of the Beast theme, they sound dark and give that feeling that you are in a prehistoric time period. Beast II's sound gloomy and fits levels that have a dark, sad setting. Both themes can be even used in haunted levels like the Horror tilesets or some of the ghost-themed levels like in Holiday GigaLems. Menace, I'm not too much of a fan of. It seems to fit levels that have small time limits.

Prob Lem posted about this a while ago, but the Lemmings 3D Circus themes are really creepy.

I've always loved Circus3 from 3D, it doesn't really sound creepy to me more like a credits song to something. Circus1 definitely does sound rather sleazy and unsettling though hehe.
Generally the 3D soundtrack sounds really 'stock music-y' to me though there are definitely some good ones; Army3 has a really nice melody.

sorry for being gone so long D:

I wouldn't call that creepy, although I would say the instrumentation sounds a little inappropriate and it doesn't really sound like a circus song to me.
I hadn't listened to the Lemmings 3D songs at all yet; some of them are pretty good! The sound quality is decent; definitely a step up from previous Lemmings games.

Personally my favorites [I totally forgot about this until just now] are from Lemmings Revolution:

here's just an example. I like all of the songs, there's only about 5-10 but imo there's not a bad one at all.

--totally unrelated--
with the new synthesizer I bought I might actually be able to make sounds not too unlike these songs!
:D:D:D:D:D :party:

I like the Revolution soundtrack too, though it's rather techno. And that song is particularly chaotic. My favourite from Revolution is definitely Confidence.

Also, wow, that youtuber has a fantastic set of vgm playlists.

Out of curiosity, can anyone confirm whether the attribution to Tim Wright (on that Youtube playlist) for the Lemmings Revolution music is accurate?  Unfortunately I don't have a working copy of that game at hand at the moment to try to verify through the game's credits text.

I looked at my manual and the in-game credits and it doesn't mention Tim Wright anywhere. I'd guess not since I'm pretty sure [from reading an interview on Lemmings Universe] few people or nobody from the DMA team worked on Revolution. It was a new group of people. I guess they got the rights from Psygnosis but it wasn't the original people who made the game.
