One of the best video game soundtracks that I have heard in a long time!!!
This is truly moving music. Some of the tracks on this cd will move your soul! I listen to this frequently, at least once a day, and I am not even growing tired of hearing the swash-buckling theme in "Thorn's Pass", or the fantesy elements in the "Forest Glade".
Another thing that stood out about this soundtrack is that it is orchestrated! Yes, a video game soundtrack that is not overly repeditive, and doesn't sound all synthy. Not to mention it is completely captivating and inthraling! This soundtrack was recorded in Progue with an 80 piece orchestra and a 40 piece choir!
Steve Burke did an absolutely amazing job with his music. You can tell he put lots of love into his production.
To some of you Danny Elfman fans out there, there are some parts of this score that sound like many Danny Elfman themes, but it's not too much like them and it doesn't sound like Steve Burke was trying to copy anyone with this music.
Songs like "Elemental Warriors" sound like themes from "Edward Scissorhands" or "A Nightmare Before Christmas", at a point "Forest Glade" it sounds a bit like the main theme to "Edward Scissorhands". "The Snow Tribe" sound like a John Williams inspired musical piece from the original STAR WARS trilogy or something.
If you buy this soundtrack, you won't be sorry at all! Any fan of video game scores, Kameo: Elements of Power, or just any fan of good music shouldn't be without this wondeful piece of music!
