5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic score for a fantastic game February 25, 2010
Verified Purchase
Following his score for "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune", composer Greg Edmonson returns to accompany Nathan Drake on his latest adventure, "Uncharted 2: Among Thieves".

With "Drake's Fortune", Edmonson provided a rich score that perfectly matched the lush, colorful jungle environments from the game. While it did have some nice themes, the score mostly felt like background music/underscore, with little identity from track to track. It's incredibly effective within the game, and is enjoyable enough to listen to, but overall, it just lacked a certain something.

However, with "Among Thieves", Edmonson outdid himself. As the locales have changed for the game, as has the sound, though the style is very much the same as the first score, so they fit together well. This time around, Edmonson gives the score a more exotic, Oriental feel, though he never relies on any cliches one might expect of such a score. Also, the "Among Thieves" score offers more in the way of melody, utilizing more of "Nate's Theme" than its predecessor really did. The action cues here are also top-notch, each with their own sound and identity, and aren't quite as interchangeable as the action music from the first game.

And more specifically, the album was arranged well, offering a good balance between more dramatic/emotional/low-key tracks and the action cues. Additionally, the soundtrack album released by Sumthing Else has three new tracks not available on the previously-released digital album.

In the end, "Uncharted 2: Among Thieves" is an exciting and exotic listening experience, a wonderful score composed for an equally wonderful game.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Video Game soundtrack March 11, 2010
Verified Purchase
This soundtrack is on par with many great action/adventure film soundtracks. If you love Firefly, Indiana Jones and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. You will love this CD.

I wish Halo Fans knew what there missing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack March 20, 2010
Verified Purchase
This is a truly epic soundtrack that perfectly sets the mood for the game.

If you already had the digital version, it probably isn't worth buying another copy for the exclusive tracks (you can download them separately from Sumething Else) anyway. The packaging seems perfunctory and cheap, and there's no detailed cover booklet. The tracks they added are great, although I really wish they'd kept them in the original release. The prior release also means that the new tracks are inserted after the end credits song even on the CD, if you care about that sort of thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nathan Drake's Excellent Sountrack January 30, 2012
By J. Star
Verified Purchase
Greg Edmonson is to Uncharted what John Williams is to Indiana Jones: Without his music accompanying the hero, the journey wouldn't be half as interesting.

Edmonson has his own march to introduce Nathan Drake, and it sticks in your head just like William's Raiders March. Including the memorable theme, Edmonson does what he is best know for with the music - He uses interesting ethnic instruments to spice up the orchestral arrangements and to give a sense of location to the tracks. Ancient temples have an eerie sound completely different from snow covered mountain trails or the thrilling din of battle. You can picture the scene in your head by simply letting the music take you there. It's completely worth buying the soundtrack to listen to outside of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Phenomenal Undertaking October 27, 2013
Greg Edmonson, who previously scored the first Uncharted game, returns in even greater form in the sequel, Among Thieves. Blending an array of orchestral sounds, with East Asian sounds to help create the game's atmosphere and showcase the locations, Edmonson crafts a masterpiece of a score that I can compare only to some great scores with it setting such a high standard for video game music, with comparisons to Gladiator, Blood Diamond, and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

With "Nate's Theme 2.0" there isn't much that's different from the first theme in Drake's Fortune, but the percussion is a little heavier. "Bustin' Chops" is a great action-packed piece, but it's the track that follows that is one of the most beautiful musical tracks of any movie or video game score. "Reunion," this track is the embodiment of greatness. The scene in the game when this track plays is more depressing than the track sounds, but the track itself is an emotional powerhouse. "Breaking and Entering" is another slow moving track that isn't really emotional, but helps to set a scene, as if it were painting a picture of obstacles to come.

I'll stop there with track analyses, but what I don't care about with the CD release, is why the bonus tracks (that weren't in the digital release) are out of order. Because technically, the track "The Heist" would take place before "Bustin' Chops," and the track "Tunnel Vision" comes before "Train Wrecked." It just bugged me a bit, because when you listen to them in order with the bonus tracks it does sound better. Either way, this score is a must-own for anyone who listens to instrumental/classical music, or video game/movie scores. Edmonson is a true musical genius
