Collect and Play All Records
To complete Golden Melody, you must collect and play every record in the game. There are 16 in total. This sounds simple enough, but as always, there’s a catch. To collect the last six, you must actually complete the game once, and then do another playthrough on that save file by clicking New Game+. Only then will the last 6 records spawn.
When you do collect and play every record, you will receive 30 points achievement or a silver trophy as a reward. This does feel pretty light considering the effort that you need to put in to unlock the achievement. Nevertheless, it’s necessary if you want to 100% complete Lies of P.
Where to Find the Records for Golden Melody
Here is a list of all the 16 records that you need to play to unlock Golden Melody, divided by which playthrough you will unlock them on.

Do not call it a mere puppet otherwise you will miss out on the Feel record.

Missable Records in Your First Playthrough
The following three records can be missed if you don’t select the right options, ruining your chances of completing Golden Melody. So, pay attention!
- Memory of Beach. You can find this record in Geppetto’s study after defeating Laxasia The Complete. However, it will only spawn if you administer the cure for Antonia earlier in the game.
