LEGO Island’s music was really good. Unfortunately, the quality of the tracks that were used in-game were not so much.
Since the master tapes were lost in a house boat accident, it was believed that the in-game versions were the only ones we were going to hear.
But, thanks to Lorin Nelson, the composer of a lot of LEGO Island’s music, an archive of cassette tapes has been found including a lot of the game’s music in far better quality than before.
We’re planning on fixing up these tracks and hoping to release a fixed-up version of the original OST in better quality than ever. An extra refined version of Brick by Brick is included as a preview.
For now, Lorin has given permission to share some of the tracks! They’re downloadable individually below in .WAV and a collection is also available.
Here’s a preview of a high quality restored version of Brick by Brick:
Also, if you’re looking for corrected lyrics for Brick by Brick: with help of the original artists we got them here!

Some tracks are known under multiple names. This is due to the fact that a lot of tracks had a different name in the game file than the credits. In some cases (eg. Happy Roaming) these tracks have been dubbed by fans and taken over by subsequent uploads. A few of these have also been kept here for being better known than the more generic official names.
Tracks without explicit artist attribution are made by Lorin Nelson.
