In a world of mainly mediocre and uninspiring games, Last of Us is a truly amazing piece of interactive entertainment. And part of the reason it's so amazing is this soundtrack.
I buy very few albums these days, because I generally listen to speech radio and podcasts rather than music. But this experience made such a deep impression on me that I had to reward the creator by purchasing. It would be impossible to imagine this superb gaming experience without this music.
Congratulations Mr. Santaolalla, you helped create a very special experience for millions of us.
PS Apologies to anyone who noticed I previously reviewed the game, and not the music!
