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 this stealthy piece from MGS PW. One of my favorite Metal Gear games. It packs so much mystery and intrigue that I find it hard to ignore. I remember when I was playing the game, this music would kick in when in codec conversations with Miller. When you hear it you feel like you’re obtaining top-secret classified intel and who wouldn’t want that sweat to bear? I hope you enjoy the suspenseful undertones of this tactical espionage track as much as I do.
#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.
#MusicMonday returns with “Prologue” from Shadow Of The Colossus. Accompanying the game’s introduction cinematic, Prologue shines with emotion, sadness, loneliness, and hope. There’s a lot of mystery embedded in the flutes, voices, strings, and melodies that engulf your senses. I really enjoyed this soundtrack, and I think it’s fitting for the game’s premise and atmosphere. A story was captured with this score, and Prologue is a showstopper. Enjoy.
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.
I never played Heavy Rain. Well, that’s not entirely true. I did play some of it, just not enough to truly experience the game properly. I often gravitate to video game soundtracks, first, before I even play a game. Most likely due to my love for music and scores. Heavy Rain’s soundtrack is no slouch in that respect. It’s moving and emotional. So much so that it can leave you breathless. Ethan Mars’ theme is enough to put you in an introspective mind set. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!
Flying over Skyrim’s world on a dragon is now possible, well, by listening to this track and diving into your wildest imaginations. Skyrim is a spectacular experience, and Jeremy Soule’s work on the soundtrack is nothing short of amazing. Wind Guide You is one that sort of sneaks up on you when you listen to the score in order. I feel it encapsulates everything that is grand about Skyrim’s world. It’s triumphant, it’s sad, its harmonious, and it’s deeply moving.
Man. I sort of forgot how special this game is, and more importantly how special the soundtrack is to Gris. I really love this track because of the way it builds and has this epic crescendo with the trumpets and horns. Gris’ soundtrack is ethereal and haunting, yet touching, and beautiful. It’s something special, folks. Give it a listen!
