Heat 20320514 One
foot in the grave Hold
The dark atmosphere of
Baroque starts with an explosion from your stereo speakers as
the mechanical rhythms, thunderous beats, and the haunting theme
of the main title "Great Heat 20320514" begins to manipulate your
state of mind. Masaharu Iwata's score for this twisted First Person
shooter is an eclectic blend of menacing rhythms and grim melodies.
On several tracks Mr.
Iwata is able to manipulate the spooky, melancholy motifs so that
they actually appear as uplifting and optimistic. Other cues utilize
a gothic sounding synthetic choir that steeps the listener in
dread. The down
side to Mr. Iwata's work is that several cues rely on moody ambient
tones, combined with gimmicky sound effects that detract from
the deliciously bleak sound.
If you like your music
to send shivers down your back when you listen day or night, then
this soundtrack is for you.
