This soundtrack is great for a peaceful night by a fire.
Ireviewstuff
The 40s motif is great, however you may just want to buy the more popular songs rather than the whole album.
Steven S. Hansen
It's such a nice break from all the pop and rock music that we're constantly barraged with.

Back in the day, there was a throwback radio program back in Seattle called Harry Nile. While the stories and characters never reached for the hardboiled glory the show was going for, I'll always remember the sad trumpet that accompanied the program that made the down on his luck detective a lot more down than he actually was. And that's the point of Hardboiled Noire music.

You might hear it in coffee shops, or on rainy nights, but there's no mistaking it. When a down on his luck Private Dick is narrating, this is the music that accompanies him. This is also the type of music and mood that the L.A. Noire soundtrack nails down perfectly. The strength in the album really lies in the fact that it works on two levels: The level of atmosphere, which anybody that's played the game can probably attest to, and the level of just being great music. The genre is very specific, and isn't played with that much nowadays, but composer Andrew Hale not only gets mood down pat, but he also takes the liberty to explore the themes, playing around with the original compositions to really peg the era.

Granted, 40 minutes straight of it can seem monotonous at times, but it also gives you the chance to savor the quality that went into it. In particular, the main theme and its variations work well, and the track "Fall From Grace Pt. 2," is a great suspenseful piece so effective that it's the main piece they use in advertising the game.

The only place where the soundtrack really falls down however is the 3 vocal compositions at the end. Not only do they not nearly live up to the quality of the time, but the singer they found is sort of awful and annoying. Let's just say there was a lot of cringing, especially since you know they didn't have the budget to get anybody bigger.

The soundtrack is great; I just wish they would have included the songs that play throughout the radios in the cars.

A very good jazzy noire soundtrack. The 40s motif is great, however you may just want to buy the more popular songs rather than the whole album.

The album is good cause the soundtrack is good in general, but it's selection is far from complete. The main theme is prominent, but other important motives like Fall from Grace 2 get only token appearances. Also, ~55 minutes isn't terrible as game soundtracks go, but with something like three hours of music in the game they could have maxed out a CD at least. I'm annoyed that the album was put together this way, but that being what it is, it's still all good music. If you're a fan, it's still worth it.

This soundtrack is great for a peaceful night by a fire. The mellowness of the music can help you reach Zen. I've never played L.A Noire but I love the fifties. Oh and if you are playing Clue with some of your friends its great to play in the background.
