Assassins Creed II Soundtrack Review.My first Assassins Creed game, and one of my favorite video game soundtracks. It won numerous awards including "Best Original Score" of '09 from outlets such as: Hollywood Music in Media, Game Audio Network Guild, Gamespy Editors Choice, Spikes Video Game Awards and multiple Readers Choice Awards.The composer--Jesper Kyd--is best known for his contributing work in the "Hitman" series, "Freedom Fighters", "Borderlands" and a number of other projects including "Assassins Creed". He also recently released his first movie trailer album "Ultimatum"(worth checking out).Most of the tracks capture the aura of Renaissance Italy very well, they transpire a sense of beauty, wonder and sadness. While some of the other more action oriented tracks convey a sense of urgency and tend to be edgy and tense. The score still maintains a contemporary sound and appropriately so, considering the game takes place in the modern era and we're visiting 15th century Italy through genetic memories via the Animus. So having that connection to the 21st century stays true to the games format.It was intriguing to find the diversity of so many listener's favorite tracks on the score, ranging from the most popular track "Ezio's Family," to "Earth," "Chariot Chase," "Venice Escape," and I'm sure many others. For the most part, soundtracks usually have that one standout track--typically the main theme--that overshadows the rest, this certainly isn't the case here.My personal favorite is the opening track "Earth," starting off with a four-note guitar riff that's repeated in a loop, creating the foundation for the faintly heard artificial harmonics, power chords, bass lines, percussion's, violin and the beautiful vocals of Melissa Kaplan--who's voice can be heard throughout the score--in harmony with the lead electric guitar. Kyd wrote the female vocal pieces with her in mind and she fits the part very well. The vocal outro starting at 2:55 is my favorite part of the song, it's such a satisfying conclusion to a wonderful build-up and execution. While it may not the most complex of pieces, it's still a very compelling piece that you'll definitely find yourself humming afterwards.My second favorite track is "Flight over Venice 2," I like how the violins and the vocal range continues to expand to the point to where you're expecting the break and the melody to take place.. only to be taken back to another slow build, and at 1:58 it hits in full force; you can just imagine soaring over Venice utilizing Divinci's flying machine. Once again Kaplans vocal work is superb.The first disc is certainly the strongest of the two in terms of quality but that's not to say the second disc should be avoided in any way, it contains a few of the greatest tracks.My top picks are presented bellow.Disc 1:Earth, Venice Rooftops, Ezio's Family, Florence Tarantella, Florence Escape, Back in Venice, Dreams of Venice, Leonardo's Inventions, Pt.1, & Venice EscapeDisc 2:Darkness Falls in Florence, Flight Over Venice 2, Ezio in Florence, The Madam, Chariot Chase, Wetlands Escape, & Hideout.A couple tracks hold close similarities and sometimes are identical in their layout, e.g. Leonardo's Inventions Pt.1 vs Pt.2. With the exception of a guitar in place of a piano at the opening, there really isn't much variation between the two. It is somewhat reminiscent of "Abandoned Pit" from Castlevania SotN.. perhaps some inspiration derived from the track? Some of the ambient tracks don't necessarily do much for me either - the Approaching Target tracks & Notorious come to mind. There are some periods of prolonged silence or the same few notes repeating sparingly without much change, but they do compliment the atmosphere in-game well, which is what they're meant for. Gotta have a few fill-in tracks here and there.All in all, this is one of the most detailed--in terms of the time-line and occurring events--Video Game Soundtracks I've heard yet. Well worth the purchased. I have yet to play through the first AC as well as the later sequels, but after having finished ACII and discovered how great this score is.. I'm definitely looking forward to finishing out the series.Don't forget to play through the game if you haven't already to experience the full effect of these great pieces!5Half the GameSimply put, Assassin's Creed wouldn't work nearly as well without the music. From the intro of Earth to Leonardo's Inventions, this is some of my favorite soundtrack music. It really should be experienced first in-game, as it was intended, but unlike most other game soundtracks, this really holds up when listened to by itself. The tracks are also nicely distinct from one another, something that I felt was missing when playing Brotherhood. That may be more due to the overuse of certain tracks within that game, but it felt more oppressing. Not so at all here. The music is utterly perfect for the atmosphere and tone of the game.5One of the best soundtracks of the yearI am already an avid video gamer (maybe less now, with so much school and work) and definitely a big Assassin's Creed fan--I was very thrilled that Ubisoft/Jesper Kyd noticed people actually -liked- AC music enough to want it, and released it pretty much around the same time as the video game release...unlike the first one, hence fans were literally down on their knees begging for it to be released (and after nearly two years it did, thankfully).I have yet to play the game as I'm still waiting for it to be released on the PC. However, I couldn't wait any longer to get the soundtrack, and the minute I had spare cash, I got it. The very second I listened to it--heaven to the ears. I am not exaggerating.I have a attune ear for music. I am somewhat a musician and hold a large library of many genres. When I study music and wish to write a review, I really dig down into that soul of the song(s). With this soundtrack, it didn't take a minute into the first track to realize I was so drawn into it and fascinated. Now, this is all my humble opinion...but I could not imagine anyone disliking this. Not your favorite, yes, but heaven forbid hating. That's about a horrid thought as disliking Beethoven or the Beatles. You just don't dislike those.The quality was crystal clear. I could hear every little guitar strum and beautiful vocals. It has a classic Renaissance feel with the singing and the Spanish guitar. It gives a sense of ease and relax--like it does when I listen to Jazz on a lazy day. There are plenty of songs though, that give you a sense of suspense and excitement; there is a perfect balance. This has more depth to it, another level of music hides in its layers--there is a definite impression of Electronica/Trance. Some parts just blow me away and give me the shivers. It's giving a sense of matrix, mysteriousness, and a futuristic intertwining into the 16th century. A surreal sensation I can't explain, but it's extremely inspiring, especially if you are a artist of any kind.The only thing I am disappointed in...that there aren't more songs! Of course, I am very thankful they gave two discs worth of it. I'm so excited to play this game with this wonderful music playing in the background.This is a perfect soundtrack if you're looking for something that isn't too distracting, but still has a lot of variety to it. It's fresh, the tunes and rhythms are as memorable as the Star Wars' themes. Even people who are not interested in gaming or have a clue what Assassin's Creed II is will love it. Some underestimate gaming music...this COMPLETELY proves them wrong.5Not Like Any Other SoundtrackAs a gamer, you're lucky if you come across a game with an amazing soundtrack. The way music affects the experience of a game is remarkable, and this soundtrack mixed with one of the most fun games of 2009 is a real treat. It's not often that I actually hear the music that's playing in the background as I play the game. I don't normally hear the music because they're only made to be fillers, but then there are games such as Final Fantasy X specifically with such exceptional music (courtesy of Nobuo Uematsu and others) and ACII.I think Jesper Kyd did a wonderful job with this soundtrack. Unlike others, it works with the game to provide such a great experience. In some games if you've noticed, the music seems to be drowned out with the gameplay, action, and whatnot. I'm not sure that I would recommend this soundtrack to someone who hasn't played the game. There is something about experiencing the thrill of adventuring atop rooftops at night with the busy city at work below you, and the magical music playing in the background. If you didn't play the game and enjoyed the soundtrack, please share your thoughts :)Overall review: Highly Recommend. There are only a few who can make music that transports you to a completely different time.5God I love this SoundtrackI had a problem with the delivery and the case and everything was broken, Don't know why ? But Amazon Already solved my problem VERY FAST. Things that happen.I will review the product non the less... I'll imagine that it isn't broken. Ok....The disc case is just like any other but the classic cover art of the game is still perfect , the music? what can I say, that's the main reason why I bought this anyways...I just love the colors of the art it's very lifeful. I know I will be very happy once I finally get it fixed and not broken but I can see the satisfaction here.(Thanks to Amazon Customer Service for fixing my problem with the purchase, they are great)5Hands-down, best soundtrack I ownThe AC2 soundtrack is the star of my music collection. Rich, deep, evocative and varied. To my mind, this soundtrack is most responsible for the video game's strong appeal and high sales. Even without the (equally breathtaking) visuals and mechanics of the game itself, the music paints an exciting, mysterious, and beautiful world of politically corrupt medieval Italy. It's frequently gentle, soothing, inspires curiosity and comfort. Other parts inspire focus or exhiliration. A few sequences are high-strung, and I usually remove those from the playlist. But even if you only like a quarter of the songs present, this soundtrack is long enough and varied enough that it will be more than worth your money.There are no English words throughout the soundtrack. That makes it a great investment if your work requires thoughtful sedentary focus, like many writers, students, and developers.5Yes, wow, that carries all the intensity, emotion, and release of the game itselfIf you have played ACII, there is little to say other than that this music will bring it back for you. The beauty, sadness, triumph, and even the sense of intense duty the game conveyed is all there. As another reviewer said I think I free ran about the city after the game was over partly because of the gorgeous soundtrack.Part of what works here is the classical sensibilities, the dulcimer like music, chant, and gentle mood setting voice-work. But added to that is a persistent electric guitar and quasi-percussion that is pulsing and raw, complimenting the softer musical aspects.Overall, this blend had to have been created for an atmospheric game like ACII, but I'd go see this at the symphony. You hear that Michael Tilson Thomas!!Extra-ordinary listening. I'm putting this on at my next party and I hope at least one guest asks or knows what it is. Enjoy listening.5Definitely The Best AC SoundtrackThis soundtrack, in combination with the amazing AC II game, is an amazing soundtrack worth getting and listening to over and over again.Probably some of the most famous songs, written by the famous game composer Jesper Kyd, are Earth, Ezio's Family, Venice Rooftops, and Leonardo's Inventions parts 1 and 2.If you skip over this soundtrack, you're missing out. The amazing elements and perfect making of each song in combination with how it fits into the game make this soundtrack very unique and one of a kind. This soundtrack is one that stacks up to the best of 'em.Whilst I'd recommend playing through the game before listening to the tracks, for better enjoying the soundtrack and understanding it, it still is wonderful to listen to regardless.I've let someone who hasn't played the games listen to AC tracks before and she loved the ones she listened to.This soundtrack, as well as the game, have been highly rated by multiple people throughout gamer fans.This soundtrack is also one where some of the main themes also develop throughout the series.Other soundtracks in the series to get along with this one are AC Brotherhood and Revelations. There are a couple great songs in AC 1, but I'd recommend the other soundtracks, if your planning to buy an entire album.I hope you guys enjoy5Video Game Music is Art!It's hard to claim that what I enjoyed the most about AC2 was the music, but it played a large role in taking the game from simply being something I played to something I experienced. The distinction is in the immersive environment and the soundtrack was essential to creating Ezio's world. Jesper Kyd gets it right, from slow, beautiful Italian opera-like pieces, to sweeping action sounds that drive and blend in this Renaissance-era environment. When listening to this soundtrack, I find myself invigorated and relaxed in equal measure, depending on the track. Jesper Kyd's work with this genre serves to further the notion that video game music is art and is worth a listen. I bought the soundtrack digitally and the price was great for two full disks of beautiful, yet intense music. I recommend this if you are a fan of soundtracks, especially in the Assassin's Creed universe.5Absolutely BeautifulI listen to a lot of music. There only a few genres that I like. I listen to a lot of soundtracks from movies and video games. This is one of my favorites. This soundtrack is so beautiful. I love the vocals. I have listened to this so many times as I fall asleep at night. It can be so soothing and peaceful. There are also the intense tracks that I also love. I highly recommend it.If you like this album, try listening to "Into Eternity" on the Darksiders 2 album by Jesper Kyd.5
