Now, with my roomates no doubt sick of hearing the CD blaring from my stereo over and over again, I'd have to say the soundtrack stands on its own quite well. Chris Vrenna is a genius at the helm. The music is haunting, creepy, and somehow soothing and beautiful all at the same time. If only they had sampled some Stevie Nicks.
As we see innovations in gameplay, graphics, networking, and even gameplay, it's nice to see the music keeping up.
