Prior to the score for Journey, Austin Wintory's name and musical works had totally eluded me. He's been highly praised for his mostly ambient-type musical score for the video game flOw, to which Journey has drawn some comparisons, but truly, I have to believe that Wintory's magnum opus thus far is indeed Journey. The video game is really an open-ended eponymous experience centered on a nameless character traveling towards a mountain for reasons unexplained. And like the game, Wintory's musical score teases and entices one's interest to the point of rabid obsession, but in my opinion, completely eclipses the game's content in favor of slack-jawed awe.
Early into opening tracks "Nascence" and "The Call," Wintory's musical and compositional gifts are easily evident. The foundation of the Journey score is rooted in cello (masterfully played by Tina Guo) and electronic ambient, and right from the start both are equally and effortlessly represented as the score begins with a heart-wrenching cello melody transitioning to gentle, brooding, electronic synth of the highest order.Read more ›
I certainly recommend it to those who haven't played Journey however the impact to those who have is significant as you relive those moments again.
I look forward to hearing more from Austin Wintory.
Track 17 (Apotheosis), in particular, is truly heart breaking. Anyone who listens through all of it and isn't moved is probably soulless.
Journey is a gorgeous, serene video game that requires an equally as gorgeous soundtrack. One that echoes the tranquility of the game's expansive and vibrant setting. This is exactly the type of soundtrack that Mr Wintory has created. Beautifully composed, the soundtrack focuses heavily on stringed instruments such as cellos and violins, delivering a deeply emotional experience to the player.
This is well worth your money, as is the game itself.

I love this game and its soundtrack; however this CD (based on my analysis) is only the digital downloaded version transferred to CD. What does that mean? Read morePublished on 24 Dec. 2013 by Damian
