I love emotional music. This Soundtrack for Silent Hill 2 is a ride through many different facets of emotion. The sound and overall feel of the soundtrack is very dark, in some places sad, in some places ambient. Most of the music centers on beautiful melodies and fear-inducing soundscapes that will make you think twice about walking down that long, dark hall. The element of sadness in the music was an obvious must because of SH2's story line, which Akira Yamaoka (Composer) does a great job of telling the story well through music. Some of the tracks are single piano compositions they create a sense of loneliness (Genius!). Some of my favorite tracks are 7. "Ashes and Ghosts," 12. "Angel's Thanatos," 18. "Love Psalm" and the very mechanical and terrifying 26. "Black Fairy." I would recommend purchasing this CD if you like the music for the game. I have seen it listed in several different places for 25.00$US and considering this masterpiece clocks in at 73:17 it is worth the money and worth the listen.
