First new thread here in five months. :)

I have found that my game drastically improves when I listen to my own music through the console, rather than the game soundtrack. I know the soundtrack wants to be an integral part of Lumines, but I increased my average score over 100,000 points immediately. It's worth a shot if you're struggling with the game.

I found the soundtrack as presented just to be way overstimulating, sort of throwing audio red herrings during frantic moments and making me think what went wrong with the last block when I should be worrying about the next block.

Quick note: The sound effects are still present, and really odd out of context.

This helps me, too. The music and sound effects can be distracting. When going for a high score on my PSP I would turn the sound down completely.

I agree the music can distract but I get more distracted by the skin changes.

I've found that turning the volume down so that I can just barely hear the music helps me a lot. You're right, the music does get really distracting.
