Harry Gregson-Williams is a genius, and his music sounded very good in the game. But it didn't sound as good on the CD. A couple tracks were good, and the rest were fairly uninteresting. And the song "Can't Say Goodbye to Yesterday" was terrible. Both the vocal version and the piano version are unlistenable. I always have to skip the tracks.
Not a bad CD, but not worth the money. The original Metal Gear Solid music is of MIDI quality, but the composition was strong enough to make it a better album. Get that one and enjoy the MGS2 music as you're playing the game. The high cost of importing this album isn't worth it.

I bought this soundtrack after buying the OST for the first Metal Gear Solid for Playstation.

This one is not nearly as good overall, in my opinion. Part of that has to do with my opinion of the games, but the composer for this soundtrack is different than that of the original MGS. Konami Sound Team Japan did the sound REALLY WELL for the first one, but this guy (individual composer)David is not nearly as well-rounded and his choice of sound samples was disappointing to me. I really liked the sounds and industrial/ambient sound of the original MGS soundtrack -- Sons of Liberty lets me down big time.

BUT I MUST SAY, that there is ONE SONG I LOVE here, and it is in fact composed by Rika Muranaka (Japanese composer who was involved with the first soundtrack as well). Her "Can't Say Goodbye to Yesterday (Piano Version)" is WONDERFUL, and beautiful, and touching, and it is really the ONLY SONG I EVER LISTEN TO on this album.

If I could rate this one song by itself, I would give it 5 stars!!! ***** (instead of 3, for the whole album).

HASH(0x9ad62b40) out of 5 stars Wow...I love it! Sept. 25 2002
By C. Wilkinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What more can I say? This is Harry Gregson-Williams! I bet y'all are saying "Harry Gregson...?" Yes, the same guy who in "The Rock" showed us the meaning of "action music" and this is no exception. Heck, this will blow you're ears off and thats not a bad thing. Let's start with the great stuff about it. Track 1: Any MGS fan will love this, the same theme that everyone remembered from Metal Gear Solid and hummed for months and months after the first time they listened to it. Track 2: This almost sounds just like Track 4, "MINE", on the soundtrack Broken Arrow by Hans Zimmer---another great track. Now for some bad stuff--the Metal Gear(main)Theme is only played 2 times!!!! BUT, there is hope! Go to eBay(the review by E-Man told me this, thank you E-Man), and there is a CD called "Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Vol. 2, The Other Side". It rocks! Trust me, the CD is 56 min. which is much longer than this at only 45 min... "Can't Say GoodBye To Yesterday"(At least, Tomorrow Never Dies!) The 2nd CD plays the theme 5 times and with both CDs you can sit back and enjoy the greatest game music over composed!
P.S.I'm sure you must like the soundtrack for "Metal Gear Solid 1" too, so go check out "Speed" by Mark Mancina (another one of Zimmer's guys, so you know it's gonna be good!).
P.S.S. If you can't find it anywhere else, then go and seek out Yoda Jedi Master, on planet Dagobah, help you he can.

As soon I received the CD in the mail, I stuck it in my Discman, and hit PLAY. Within minutes of listening I was in love with it ! It's great music ! The music seems (to me) to be a clash - and a VERY GOOD CLASH - of classical and techno. They're slightly remixed, but that doesn't ruin a thing ! In fact sometimes it enhances it !
While much shorter than "The Other Side", it's a great compliment to it; Both albums compliment each other, yet are great alone !
This is a great soundtrack you'll want to get your hands on - even if it means stealthily infiltrating an armed base to get it!

Not too much to say about this. If you love metal gear and the soundtracks then this CD is for you. It's mostly instrumentals from the game (including the amazing intro cinematic) I love popping it in while I'm driving.

what can i say, Harry Gregson-Williems is simply one of the best composers of today, and this is one of the best score's he's done!. First just because this is a game soundtrack dosen't mean that it is not good, being one of the first film composer to score a game, shows us that scoring a game, is as easy as scoring film, but this is only for Harry Gregson(Zimmer, Rabin, or Powell) or Metal Gear fan, heck I'm a MG fan and I didn't really like the first score, but i listen to this one all the time, it is as good as any of his other scores(besides Spy Game). But this cd is to short, make sure you get the 2th cd "Metal Gear Solid 2: The Other Side" you can find it on ebay and half.com. If you like MG1-2 then try Speed by Mark Mancina its a good one to
HASH(0x9ad664a4) out of 5 stars One of the best Game scores I've ever heard Aug. 31 2002
By Frank Romano III - Published on Amazon.com

I was very impressed at how close this score was to an actual movie score. Every track will take your breath away. This is definately worth the money! I also enjoyed Metal Gear Solid 2: the Other Side, which is another soundtrack based on this game. Both CD's are AMAZING. You won't be disapointed.
