Chances are, you may have heard this MGS2 / Devil May Cry hybrid arrangement with cinematic and gothic overtones by Mr. Hudson before - it's been on the net for quite awhile. Given it was already so famous, me and Jared both decided it would be cool if, for its debut on OCR, he remastered it a bit, tweaked a few things here and there, etc. Just to add a little bonus to those already intimately familiar :) In typical Jared Hudson style, this is a very strong piece with prominent percussion, great dynamics, lush arrangement, and a flair for the melodramatic. Jared loves those swells and power chords, and I for one don't hold it against him, as long as they're done like they are here - well. I have always been and will always be partial to Konami's Metal Gear Solid games - they really started something with the original, the follow-up being more an evolution than a revolution but still making all the right improvements. My type of game, and the score to MGS2 by Gregson-Williams is indeed film-quality - better, in fact, that some of John Williams' recent stuff. The type of soundtrack that would give the competing Oscar nominations for best score a run for their money (though last year LotR won and deserved it a thousand times over) Jared mixes and matches the gothic elements of the Devil May Cry soundtrack, which I'm less familiar with, into a two-segment piece that's almost transparent in its blending. Very suspenseful, epic, and well-constructed - as most good film music does, this arrangement tells a story in its clear progression, rises, and falls, and conjures rich visual images. Give it a listen, even if you've heard a version before, and a review, even if you've reviewed it before. Great stuff, highly recommended.
