Itchy. Tasty. Prepare to be frightened!
Redfield | USA | 10/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When playing the "Resident Evil" video game on the Playstation, one of the key-factors to its success is the music. The music serves as a vehicle to push the fear into the audience, boosting the experience into a frightening reality where hideous zombies and nightmarish bio-creatures exist.

To this purpose, the music of this game does not fail.

Full of terror and dread, the music on this CD is extremely beautiful. From full melodies of light, character-based themes (such as that of Track 3), the music ultimately reaches its true form: sinister refrains and terror soaked fear. The music is played out wonderfully by using (sometimes innovative) methods of scoring, perfectly matching the dead-filled corridors of the spooky Spencer mansion.

It achieves this so perfectly that sometimes some of the tracks are damn too frightening to listen to. If you are looking for scary music, then this is surely for you. If you are a fan of the series, you'll already know what I mean about the music and will want to buy it right away. To really enjoy the music contained here, it is probably a requirement that you've played the game; it adds a certain quality, and you know first hand from going through the game about the terror and horror that this music so perfectly relates.

As a previous reviewer mentioned, 'the music sounds 'somehow different'. There are two main reasons for this and the first is that this is actually a remix of the score, but is limited in that description. Only three or four tracks have been remixed, and only in the slightest way.

The second reason is that Capcom have remastered the game score using Q-Sound technology, which brings every instrument and every note forward, clarifying, into the music field offering great depth and dimension to the score, bringing much loved score into a new re-mastered light, offering a much wider 'view' of the music.

Overall, this is a great soundtrack to a great game. Its only fitting that it has been released on CD, and Capcom have presented it well (including game dialog at the beginning of some tracks, which tell the story during the length of the CD). Buy it, cue up the first track and let it take you away on a grateful remembrance of horror and terror.

As Makoto Tomozawa (Resident Evil Music Director) states: "If you haven't heard this music when you're alone, afraid, and in the dark, then you haven't heard it at all."

Itchy. Tasty."

"This is a very scary CD. You can listen to parts of the CD and think I remember that from the game. This CD is like the game. DON'T PLAY IT IN THE DARK."

"Resident Evil soundtrack is like the game....only the best. Its scary and fun to listen to. You have got to have this for your music collection. I say the Resident Evil Sountrack ghishs all other game soundtracks."
