Ghost Of Tsushima (Music From The Video Game) is quite literally what it says. It's a double CD soundtrack of music from the video game. The first disc features compositions from Ilan Eshkeri who has worked on films like Stardust and Johnny English. I haven't heard his work until now and I was impressed. His only other game score is for The Sims 4. The second disc features music from Shigeru Umebayashi. I have previously heard and enjoyed his work in films like Fearless, House of Flying Daggers and The Grandmaster. Both worked together on Hannibal Rising.
The music written for Ghost Of Tsushima (Music From The Video Game) has wonderful range and variety. For the big sweeping scenes in game, you'll hear a lot of American style strings etc. The kind of thing you'll hear from other big games like Uncharted etc. These are often accompanied by some taiko drums and the odd Japanese instrument. This side of the score is on the first disc. It's a wonderful collection of music that sounds impressive cranked up in the speakers. The second disc features more a grounded, more Asian sound. This side of the score contains more Shakuhachi, Shamisen, Koto, Biwa, Flutes and even some Mongolian throat singing. I preferred this disc myself but the two compliment each other rather well.
As an album, I was genuinely surprised at just how tuneful the music really is. The game lets you hear some nice bits of the score but not to the degree that the CDs obviously does. Each track is a lot more recognisable here than it is in game. The pacing is also really good. Quite impressive considering the variety between tracks. The way it mixes big bombastic orchestral music with Asian folk is very well done. It's a very easy two hours worth of music to listen to.
For those interested, the two CDs come in a nice looking digipak. It contains a nice looking booklet with a word from both composers, all the details of who played what instrument and some nice looking art work. It's nothing amazing to look at but it's at least presented nicely.
If you're just in from playing this game to death like I am, I highly recommend this CD. I also recommend it for those who enjoy scores for Asian themed filmed etc. It has been done very professionally and is considerably more enjoyable than the average soundtrack CD. It's very refreshing to listen to and sounds much better here than it does in game. In fact, I don't think the game did the scores justice at all.
They couldve achieved the same goals with a normal case and include the artwork as a separate manual.
SO JUST BEWARE
