Simply put, the score is excellent. Tom Salta is an accomplished videogame composer and it shows. He expertly blends the sweeping orchestral sounds of Martin O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori with the harder edged sound of Neil Davidge's Halo 4 soundtrack providing a musical bridge between the original Halo trilogy and 343 Industry's "Reclaimer Trilogy" beginning with Halo 4. Interestingly enough Mr. Salta's use of a mostly female choir and some of his general themes are reminiscent of Stephen Rippy's Halo Wars score.

This is certainly a more "traditional" Halo score with regards to the overall feel of the music. The majority of the songs have a heavy, driving use of percussion in a similar vein as Halo 2 or Halo 3: ODST. Something that Mr. Davidge failed to do with Halo 4's score was to utilize a piano anywhere near as effectively as Mr. O'Donnell, something that Mr. Salta has done here.

There are a few tracks, "Hunted" in particular that are reminiscent of his work in the Ghost Recon series but they never really feel out of place. All in all it's a solid chunk of music.

Unfortunately the album doesn't have a big showstopper finale piece like Halo 3's "Finish the Fight," Halo 4's "117" (composed by the extremely talented Mr. Kazuma Jinnouchi), or even the original and iconic "Halo" theme. There are some excellent songs but with the longest song at 3:15 they never really grow beyond the action highlights.

I would recommend that 343 Industries and Microsoft keep Mr. Salta involved in the Halo series as long as possible. His grasp of Martin O'Donnell's style and the feel of the original trilogy's music is impressive and would greatly benefit the current mix of Mr. Davidge's haunting ambiance and Mr. Jinnouchi's emotional themes.

I was not all that enthused about some features of the game, however, I discovered the score here after checking halo wikia for more information on the game, and I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable this music really is. I highly recommend this for one's halo collection.
