Composer Jeff Danna, known for his scores like The Boondock Saints and Resident Evil: Apocalypse, has also been credited with arranging the soundtrack for the first Silent Hill film in 2006. Though a vast majority of the original film's musical material was culled from the long-running Silent Hill video game series, up until recently composed by the legendary Akira Yamaoka, the score for the sequel Silent Hill: Revelation 3D carries a bit of a twist. As opposed to simply (by comparison) gathering and mixing existing material, Jeff Danna was tasked with entwining Yamaoka's varied, mysterious, and much-loved music with more emotion and empathy. A daunting task, but rest assured; Danna adds such a dizzying amount of textures and layers to Yamaoka's thematic material that the end result is very much more than a Silent Hill arranged score.

Opener "Silent Hill Revelation" is immediately recognizable to longtime Silent Hill 3 fans with its use of the video game's "Never Forgive Me, Never Forget Me." In a somewhat expected yet seemingly unprecedented manner, the beginning track quickly delves into dark, resonating, electronic feedback and calmly back again before transitioning to one of the album's best songs and the first of many of Danna's recurring themes: "Early Birthday Present." This touching piece actually reminds early on of Mark Snow's work on the latter seasons of Millennium, before Danna's treatment of Akira Yamaoka's melodies is fully realized in impressive fashion as he continues to mix new orchestral elements into Yamaoka's industrial-style percussion from the Silent Hill games. "Early..." builds upon itself nicely, almost as if to allow one to sink into the score and get comfortable before rending it in two and thrusting the listener into compounding horror.

The soundtrack is mixture of music from the game series and new music for the movie. Jeff Danna & Akira Yamaoka work very well together in this soundtrack. All of the music felt like what I would have heard while playing the games. I fond the whole soundtrack very enjoyable and I listen to it a lot.

14 tracks on this soundtrack and I enjoyed 10 of them. Great soundtrack! I apologize but I'm not too good at giving reviews on music. Everyone has different tastes in music what may be good to some may be trash to another and vice versa. But this soundtrack is a gem!

Mr. Danna did all right, but he had some big boots to fill, and this was a movie background soundtrack, rather than a video game soundtrack. The music is, accordingly, less developed than what the series has come to promise.
