HASH(0x9baf7834) out of 5 stars The type of grand scale score lacking in even most Feature Films!! July 6 2005
By clockwork - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Don't let the front cover credits fool you, while Producer Tommy Tallarico has done a fine job with amassing a full live Orchestra for a Video Game, it was composer MICHAEL RICHARD PLOWMAN who has created this fresh and epic score most Hollywood films long for. One of the best scores of the year!

HASH(0x9baf7a2c) out of 5 stars Breathtaking Sept. 12 2005
By NicotineHell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I had heard the sample on the main Advent Rising page, and also heard "Bounty Hunter" nearly a hundred times, but nothing could have prepared me for the entire soundtrack. I have yet to actually play the game, but I can say this, it has some of the best orchestral music, ever performed for a video game.

This soundtrack is one the best video game soundtrack to date, and puts many million dollar motion picture soundtracks to shame. An absolute must have for fans of game soundtracks, orchestral music, or anyone who is a fan of music.

HASH(0x9bad1420) out of 5 stars Stunning Nov. 20 2005
By Bjrn Fallqvist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I usually do not write reviews, but I had to make an exception of this one. It is exceptionally stunning and beautiful. No other game music I have heard can match this one. Highly recommended.
HASH(0x9bad39fc) out of 5 stars Beautifully engineered, fairly derivative March 11 2008
By Booker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is abviously a butt-load of talent and money behind this soundtrack. But it's married with very little originality. I will say that the score works extremely well within the gameplay itself with plenty of bombast and a few quieter, reflective pieces, but there's really nothing that hasn't been heard before.

I'd be tempted to point a curious game soundtrack collector to the "Mass Effect" OST (although, it does have an admitedly anemic 3-note main theme, but hey, "Jaws" did pretty well on 2!) which has a more inspired take on the melding of 80's electronic work (think "Tron", "Bladerunner", "Escape From New York") and orchestral elements. Or maybe even check out "Before Crisis - Final Fantasy VII" OST, and although not technically a game soundtrack the "Final Fantasy VII - Advent Children" movie OST is stunning in its unique take on standard western composition and counterpoint. One could always go back to such classics as "Total Annihilation" OST by Jeremy Soule, "Halo" by O'Donnell and Salvatori (but these are givens if you collect game soundtracks or soundtracks of any kind).
HASH(0x9bad38d0) out of 5 stars Excellent buy June 15 2006

Not many games, or movies, seem to put forth a real effort into their soundtrack. This disc starts off great and tapers down a bit since it would be unrealistic to expect the entire disc to be awesome. Still, the first half of the disk is great while the second half is good, which in fairness had to hold back the 5th star. I would still recommend this disk to anyone. It has power were many discs have mediocraty. I know a few who dont quite share my taste in this disc but agree it is a good-great background music selection for doing work.
