‘The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un‐inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver’d by Pirates.’

This was the complete title on the first edition of Robinson Crusoe, a story which needs little introduction now; resting in the highest rank of folklore where details vary and blur but basic identity remains universal. The newly found “Lost Soundtrack” by Russia’s X.Y.R (Xram Yedinennogo Razmuwlenuja) makes good use of that familiar sense, narrating solely through synthesizer, able to paint vivid scenes without much more than a track-title’s reference point.
