There is something incredibly unsettling about Returnal, and with the track entitled “The Forest”, the music encapsulates that unsettling vibe. The background music alone whilst playing gives the player not only a creepy atmosphere, but also a curious mind. There’s a push and pull with Returnal, and Bobby Krlic has done a tremendous job capturing this with the soundtrack to this fine game.
#MusicMonday returns with one more track from The Last Guardian. Get swept away with emotions while you listen to “Forest”. The Last Guardian is an unforgettable story, and the soundtrack is equally unforgettable in my opinion. It’s got that big orchestral story driven sound you’d expect from a major motion picture, and who doesn’t appreciate that? There are notes of mystery, suspense, solitude, sadness, and every human emotion packed into this track, and the rest of this brilliant score. “Forest” soars with orchestral textures, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Wow, folks. Just wow. I haven’t played The Last Guardian yet, however, it’s getting played this week, for sure. I love video game soundtracks, and I often will preview a games score before playing the game. I think it’s safe to say that some soundtracks have sort of, forced me to like mediocre games. Anyway, this soundtrack is soul stirring, uplifting, sad, and invigorating all at the same time. I hope you find solace in this wondrous piece from what appears to be, a very magical game.
