came 4 days before estimated time for arrival!!! very shocked and pleased. cd was brill really enjoyed it well worth getting.very good sound quality, very good quick delivery would use supplier again!.
Brilliant album for a brilliant game! I enjoy the two main themes of 'Theme of Laura' and 'Promise' the most, but other songs stand out for me, such as 'Alone in the Town'! Packaging is pretty good as well, although a lot of the text is Japanese, which I suppose is to be expected. It looks pretty cool if you're weeaboo though.
Silent hill 2 Has the best soundtrack ever from konami Akira Yamaoka. absolutely class and the parcel/package i received was the best ever and its the best to its standards. thank you for the parcel/package!
This is the soundtrack from my favourite game in the series. Silent hill 2 is by far the most immersive out of the first 3 games. The soundtrack is sometimes creepy (walking around the town or strand) and some are downright terrifying (boss battles, hospital area enemies). Some of the music is for the deep emotion that you will find in the game and it is very beautiful and haunting.
This isn't the full soundtrack but it certainly has the base of what you need to experience the main themes with songs such as Laura's Theme (Epic Silent Hill signature song) and Promise. There are loads on here that, especially if you have played the game, will be brought right back into the feel and spirit of the story of this particular segment of the franchise. Silent Hill 2 is by far my favourite and listen to this on my mp3 player frequently.
Silent Hill 2 was undoubtedly one of the most scary and downright disturbing games of all time. All out fear and suspence during the game was conjoured out of the player via the amazing score, from silent hissing and screams to all out guitar driven thumps designed to frighten the hell outta you. Of all the tracks each has its own unique identity and each will help lower the temperature of the room a significant few degrees. Aside from the emotional element, the music stands up by itself as of very high quality. Etheral keyboards, guitars, harps, drums, electronica and orchestral instuments all combine to create another world of scoring. The only weak track in my mind is track 12 "Angel's Thanatos". Its a silly attempt at a heavy metal riff that fails miserably. This album takes pride of place in my collection, if you want your mind toyed with you should let it dominate yours too.

Silent Hill 2 is unique, in that it's more like a piece of literature than a game, the story is so intricate, and tells a deeply unsettling tale about mental illness and explores the possibility that reality is subjective. The beauty of this story is reflected perfectly by the soundtrack as some songs are mournful, others sound almost hopeful while others convey a deep sadness. I think people who have played and enjoyed the game will have an apreciation for this as it will remind them of elements of the story, and people who have never played the game will enjoy it just as much for being beautiful music.
