Inon Zur is one of my favorite video game music composers. Honestly, I've been a huge fan of his for much longer than I've been aware. Around nine years ago I first heard his work on Champions of Norrath, followed soon after by Champions: Return to Arms and Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows. He's continued since then to become one of the video game industry's most respected artists, with such titles to his credit as the Fallout and Dragon Age series, and my personal favorite of his, the score for Lord of the Rings: War In the North. Zur's score for RIFT: Harmony of the Planes, though somewhat of a compilation of tracks culled from the RIFT game and its expansions, is still an excellent example of the quality of work we've come to expect from Zur.

Since RIFT's score isn't complete in this 17-track release, it's difficult to locate a unifying theme or recurrence of thematic material therein. However, sounds reminiscent of Zur's legacy works present themselves often, as do those of similar industry scores, perhaps based upon nothing aside from a similarly epic and fantasy-style structure and sound. Leadoff track "RIFT Title Theme," for example, immediately displays elements of Pinar Toprak's title theme from Ninety-Nine Nights, including twinkling keys, orchestral flair, and female vocals aside a burgeoning coalescence of instrumentation. Tracks like "Silverwood" and "Freemarch" fondly recall the respective calm and calamitous moments of Lord of the Rings: War In the North, as do numerous others; part of the excitement of the score is how Zur shifts between these two juxtaposing elements so frequently and smoothly.
