This review is from: Resident Evil Code: Veronica X (Audio CD)
Having played Resident Evil Code Veronica to death on both platforms, I was compelled to purchase the soundtrack. And I wasn't disappointed in the slightest. The music is masterfully executed by what sounds to be an immensely talented orchestra (although admittedly, the music does sound slightly strange without the visuals to go with it). It ranges from depressingly melancholy (tracks 6 [Death Siege] and track 7 [Palace of Insane]) to the positively creepy (track 21 [Theme of Nosferatu]) to the thrilling and chilling (most of the rest of the tracks with the exception of track 08). Yes, this is a great piece of work. There are 46 tracks in all, but most of them don't surpass two minutes, hence the huge number. This is atmospheric, tense music at its best, and sounds great just playing in the background. Fans of the series will love it, regardless, and people of any musical persuasion will probably enjoy at least some of the tracks since there really is something for everyone. The packaging is also nice and impressive, much better than anticipated, and as an added bonus, you get a dinky little sticker as well, to do with what you please. So easy pleased me :) but this is a true hidden gem, especially since they were flogging these CD's in a games magazine at a disgraceful £34. Tut tut. But I'm digressing. This is truly spine-chilling stuff, and without it, lets face it, Resident Evil would never be quite the same.
