If you're a fan of the sound of Halo 2 you should enjoy this soundtrack and I recommend you buy it. Having said that, if you buy this expecting a similar treatment as in the Halo 1 soundtrack you'll be disappointed. Too many great tracks from the game have been taken out and too many songs that weren't in the game have made it in. What this means is that you can be listening to the amazing track from the game, "Earth City" and the next you'll be listening to a completely random song by Incubus or Hoobastank.
If you like these bands then that's great but if you don't you're left wondering where all the music from the GAME went and why it isn't here. The great music from the introduction cutscene? Nope. The music from the start of "Outskirts" (and the opening of E3 2003 demo )? Nope. In game level music? One track "Peril" which is second-rate in my opinion.
I sound like I'm complaining but in all honesty this is great soundtrack. But compared to the original soundtrack which is much more in depth and contains a LOT more in-game music this is seriously wanting. Plenty of tracks but only 14 of these are from Halo 2. 6 tracks are songs never featured in the game.

It's hard to beat the brilliant soundtrack of the original Halo, but Bungie have done it. Keeping the brilliant theme tune and recognisable sounding of the Halo soundtrack, and adding a much rock-ier sound to it, this is much better than the first.
In the first Halo OST, it was more or less a straight move from game to CD, but in Halo 2 Vol 1, it's much improved, with added vocals and remixes. However, some songs seem to never appear in the game at all, such as "Connected" and "Never Surrender", and although people say they sound like they were from the game, I disagree. But some songs are instantly recognisable, like "1st Movement Of The Odyssey" from the Banshee chase as the Arbiter.
Some people might not appreciate the Classical sounds of Halo 1 being chopped through with a guitar, but I say it brings a fresh sound. You wouldn't want more of the same, would you?

The halo 2 soundtrack is a fantastic piece of well put together music that reflects the moods of characters and beings in the game the tone of the level's atmosphere. It is a truly great piece of work and any halo fan should have this rock on soundtrack. The Mjolnir Mix is definately the best track with the booming drums, twanging guitar and echoy singers it always makes me nod my head in beat and do a electric guitar impression(bad might i add) while the instrument plays out. The 'Blow me away' tune is also a great addition. It reminded me of that rock on, ass kicking, thirst for more battle near the end of the second last level as Master chief were the music is played. Without the music the fight wouldn't be the same, it really makes you want to jump in their and go crazy. It's brill.

Then every other track is brilliant also, Peril with the innocent short chords that i always tap my finger too. The Last Spartan which plays along during the cut scene where the master chief 'gives the covenant back their bomb'. The build up is imense and the echoy singing as the chief floats in space and the bomb explodes reminds you of this memorable moment. The only 1 problem i have with this soundtrack is it has some music (namely 2nd and 3rd movement of the Odyssey) which doesn't at all fit in with the Halo type of music and is i think plainly just rubbish. So apart from these two tracks which you can always skip ahead of anyway this is something worth buying and if you already ain't gotta it you don't know what your missin.

People keep saying that most of this album isn't in the game, I'm here to say that most of it is, bar one or two tracks it is all in the game. Those people who say it isn't are only saying that because most of the tracks aren't by M.O'Donnel and M.Salvatori.
Those few tracks that are not in the game are inspired by the game, and it is apparent that they're inspired by it.
Altogether this is a good soundtrack that should cater for the band of HALO fans that Bungie views as the largest amount.

One of the other reviewers wrote that most of the music doesn't feature in the game itsef. Clearly this individual has never played Halo 2 as I can think of all the places in the game where the music is except for the 2nd and 3rd movements. But they're a but dodgy anyway. Only difference between some of the songs on the C.D and in the Game is that a few of them have the lyrics in when the versions in the game are without the. Well worth a butchers at.

This soundtrack improves on the original in so many ways. The music is better, the tracks are more varied and the use of guitar is just incredible.This is what a soundtrack should be.It has music from the game and orignal game. Only one or two tracks are not to my taste.If you liked the original get this, if not still get this.

I have to say that my predecessors (i.e. the people who said that a great deal of the soundtrack was not part of the actual score of the game) either have difficulty hearing properly or simply have a very bad memory. I've counted four songs that were never used in-game, that's not very many at all, and it's easy to see the inspiration these artists recieved from the game. Every single song has its own enjoyable quality, even if some are very varied. If you enjoyed the music of one of the greatest games of all time, then buy this soundtrack.
