I have purchased the Halo 3 original soundtrack months ago and loved it. I still listen to it while I read today. After purchasing the HALO3:ODST OST, I can say with full confidence that it blows it out of the water (not to discredit the Halo 3 OST, however)

It perfectly sets the dark mood as you play a silent, lost, yet lethal ODST in the city of New Mombasa. I thought years ago the music from Marty and Michael couldn't get any better, but it does with this. And by no means do you need to be a Halo fanatic to enjoy this music. After playing this game in front of my three roommates, every one of them raved about the perfect score that went along so well with the game play.

Just listening to this music (especially with your mp3 player while you walk around in public) will make you feel like a true B.A.M.F., of this I am sure.

Buy this now. Do not hesitate.

Long live Marty and Michael.

AS an avid Halo fan, i've come to expect that with every Halo game that comes out will be accompanied by an epic score. Halo 1-3 have been the farthest thing from disappointment, Halo Wars was a pleasant surprise, and now we come to the latest installment in the Halo story, Halo 3: ODST. With Bungie composers Martin O'Donell and Micheal Salvatori at the helm, we are fortunate enough to bare witness to another musical gem.

For those who don't know, Halo 3: ODST is NOT a continuation of the story told in Halo 1-3 with the Master Chief as the main character. The story of ODST revolves around a crew of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers and tells the tale of what happened between the events on Halo 2 and 3. I say this not to talk about the game, but to make a point that this is a different story then the one being told from before, therefore it calls for a whole new change of theme. ODST is noticeably different from its predecessors. In past Halo soundtracks, we were blessed with a fair balance of epic battle music, mystical ambiance, a couple of cool rock themes, and some well rounded and composed instrumentals that provided an excellent backdrop to an excellent game. The music was big and bold, much like the Master Chief is. With this game however, something that revolves around humans instead of the mighty spartan, the sounds are a bit more subtle.

To put it simply, Halo 3: ODST lacks the same energy that was present in the previous soundtracks. By no means is that a bad thing, its just what has changed. Overall, this soundtrack is very smooth. A fair majority of the CD is comprised of softer, quieter tracks.

The music on this soundtrack surprised me so much! The jazz elements are expertly layered in between epic drums and smooth, ambient orchestrals. Nothing feels out of place when it comes up. All crescendos are built up to and emotional, and all of the low ambient parts perfectly set a mood. This music is perfect for me seeing as I'm a writer as it never gets in my way, and always keeps me moving forward. I also play lots of role-playing games (the pen and paper kind) and this is the best background music for any scene. I highly recommend this soundtrack to anyone looking for good music!

If you've played the game Halo 3: ODST, then you know that the atmosphere of this sidebar title in the Halo Series is fairly bleak. You spend most of your time in an empty city that has been upended by an alien invasion. Civilians are long gone, your fellow soldiers' bodies litter the streets, and the alien dropships seem to be making deliveries nonstop.

The game is excellent, and its melancholy score is part of the reason: it sets a soft, sad tone and I found it oddly comforting to listen to. I downloaded this MP3 album* from Amazon and discovered that with the weather serving me some gray rainy days, this made for soothing background music. While there are parts where the military cadence of the Halo series ramps up, for the most part it is subdued, but pleasant.

If you enjoyed the ODST game, the soundtrack evokes the same mood. I was happy to realize it fit well into my general background listening routine, too.

*NOTE: this product review was written for the MP3 download. If you are reading this review under a listing for the CD, be aware that Amazon does this with some of its reviews. We reviewers have no control over this.

Ok this album is really awesome I love listening to it. Martin set the mood with the jazz type ambient music with you running around the city destroyed in the dark. I love the direction and mood the Martin set with this album to me I love this album just as equally as Halo, Halo 2, and Halo Reach soundtracks, cause they all offer something new to hear and its awesome.

The music from Martin O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori is as good as ever. The tone of this soundtrack is a bit different from the rest of the series. It really captures the dark city with its smooth and somber sounds through the use of some new instruments like the sax.

My only complaint which stems back to the release of the Halo 3 album, is that the tracks are not completely separated. Instead of having a dedicated number for each individual track, the are combined into a set of 3 or more. This can be rather annoying when you only want to hear something specific.

That being said, I would gladly purchase a revised version of the soundtrack if it had all the tracks broken up into their 30+ individual numbers.
