Well, this is terribly gracious. The complete score for Relic’s divisive RTS sequel can now be had for no pennies. I can’t say it struck me as either wonderful or terrible whilst I played the game, but the track names are certainly spectacular – f’rinstance “There Is Only War“, “They Come In Waves And We Push Them Back” and – oh yes – “Show Me What Passes For Music Among Your Misbegotten Kind“. The world would be a better place if all songs were called that, frankly.
It’s all dark, lavish orchestral fare, composed by one Doyle W. Donehoo, and if you want to wander through the supermarket whilst pretending you’re really stamping on Xeno skulls with your size-48 steel jackboots, it’s probably just the soundtrack you’re looking for.
