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.
