SH original soundtrack,
This review is from: Silent Hill (Audio CD)
I had been looking to pick up this classic for a while now, as it had usually been so expensive; I had never seen it for under 60 quid. An offer came up for 17 pounds so I couldn't say no.
The music is what gave Silent Hill its edge, for me anyway. The production is fantastic. Yamaoka knows how to chill you to the bone, and he doesn't hold back in channeling pure terror into sonic form; 'My heaven,' 'Not Tomorrow 2.'
He also knows how to write a decent song as well; 'Silent Hill,' 'Tears of...,' 'Not tomorrow 1,' etc.
I'd have to say that this is not for casual listening, as most of the time, you can't tell when the songs change. Although that is not a bad thing by any means, it conveys an atmosphere, rather than an audible tune at times, which is why it intrigues me so. It's more of an experience listening to it all the way through.
Also it came 2 days after purchase, top notch all round.
