Well I bought this and immediately proceeded to download it, once I had gotten all files I then listened to it.
Mr. kyle
This game is a perfect example of the depth of emotion and drama that today's gaming music can demonstrate.

As far as ambient/cyberpunk style electronic soundtracks go, Deus Ex Human Revolution is certainly one of the best. I've been a fan of the main theme song "Icarus" since the debut of the amazing cinematic trailer from Square and Eidos from E3 '10, and have been eagerly anticipating the soundtrack. Let me tell you, if you're a fan of this genre of music, as I am - It does not disappoint.

The first track on the album "Icarus-Main Theme" is by far the catchiest tune and the main act of the score. Delivering a religious tone and a moody/futuristic atmosphere--complimented by the synth arpeggios, and eventually percussion's alongside additional instruments and choir to formulate the final result. I think I've played this song for almost everyone I know(yeah, I've been listening to it a lot..), and I always enjoy hearing their reaction. "Wow, this is from a video game?" "It sounds like it's from a movie." A friend of mine actually purchased the game after listening to the soundtrack, interesting how that works.

One thing the score does amazingly well, is help you recall your experience with the game. Whether that be the poverty stricken streets of Detroit, the battle with Namir, or the wealthy neighborhoods of HengSha, China. The first time I heard "The Mole"(Great track btw) I recognized exactly where I've heard it at Sarif's Manufacturing Plant. That shows how well the tracks compliment the environment--which was McCanns intention. He states that he really intended for the music to exists "Inside the game". As opposed to a non-immersive track sitting on top of everything else. Not to mention he wanted the music to be nonjudgmental; what one person sees as good another may see differently, and the melodies shouldn't take sides or imply which decisions one should make.

Concerning the soundtrack I have nothing to say but wonderful things, it's really a great accomplishment in atmospheric music.

Now, I bought the Augmented Edition and have just 12 files. Do you expect me to pay for something twice? The Augmented Edition was supposed to have the soundtrack, instead we got half of it.
For shame, Squeenix...

EDIT:For those who didn't understand, the Augmented Edition is supposed to have the soundtrack included, but it's just 12 tracks. This has 25. Nothing to do with the game sound files.

Well folks, I have been listening to this soundtrack nearly every day since I purchased it. Not kidding. I listen when I'm lying in bed reading, I listen while I'm driving, I listen while I gaze out the window at the skyline pretending I'm in a sci-fi movie. Completely addicted! If he put out 10 discs of this stuff I'd buy every last one.

If you're reading this, Mr. McCann, I know there were some unused tracks from this epic piece! A "lost tracks" follow-up would be fantastic. You're amazing and I can't wait to hear what's next from you.

ORIGINAL REVIEW

This is an excellent soundtrack, on par with if not exceeding that of a major motion picture score. My friends will hate me for it but I like it better than Daft Punk's Tron. I also hate to say it, but the soundtrack might actually be just a little bit better than the game itself, at least where longevity is concerned.

It's a great balance of orchestral and electronic, at times emotional, but always keeping in the sci-fi / cyberpunk mood; You won't even have to ever play the game to be transported to the urban future on the verge of dystopia.

If you're a fan of the Blade Runner soundtrack, or moody ambient music in general, this is for you. My only minor complaints are that sometimes the "breakbeat" style during the high action tracks sucked me back to 1999, and that some of the greatest tracks are simply too short! I've looped "Main Menu" for 30-40 minutes at a time and not even noticed!

Top notch, hoping to see this guy get more work in big Hollywood pictures.

This album might possibly be one of the best soundtracks that I have heard since Daft Punk's, Tron Legacy album. Like Tron Legacy, Michael McCann gives the game personality and what I believe to be another dimension. Oddly enough, I have yet to play the game. Why? I am one cheap dude. In short, I am that guy who is behind the "curve" while everyone else is playing the newest and greatest game that just came out. Any way, this ambient infused album creates a vision of what the world of Deus Ex is. Since I haven't played the game, it reminds me a bit of "Blade Runner". A futuristic noir setting where the two "super powered" countries are combined into one. Am I right? If you like the ambient, electric, orchestral, and cinematic combination then this album is for you. After listening to this soundtrack, it makes me want to play the game even more.

It's a must own.

This is an amazing score on several levels. For starters, the music fits perfectly in the Deus Ex universe. As a huge fan of the Deus Ex series of games, I'm not just speaking of Human Revolution, but all three games. I regularly listen to the score of the first two and knew they were high-caliber music that offered tons of ambiance and atmosphere, so I was greatly looking forward to the release of Human Revolution not just for the game itself, but also the soundtrack.

Regarding the video game series, the score had a lot to live up to. The scores to the first two games were so moody and atmospheric that even now when I listen to them, I remember what I was doing in the video games when certain tracks play. I don't just remember the parts in the video games, either, I remember those parts of my life in general, as that's when I was in college, played lots of games, talked about them with friends, etc. As such, those scores evoke a lot of memories, which meant that the score to Human Revolution had a pretty steep reputation to follow.

Having said all that, honestly, I'm blown away by this soundtrack. Each track is loaded with the same futuristic sounds that evoke a dystopian future that made the scores to the first two games so great. Each track just screams cyberpunk, as if something you'd hear right out of Blade Runner. The soundtrack is positively loaded with so much ambiance, moodiness, and general atmosphere that just like the first two scores, I remember exactly what I was doing in the game during each track.

On its own, the soundtrack is just really awesome, futuristic sounding techno.
