A great collection of oldies
I'm a huge Bioshock fan. I greatly admire the game's art-deco, broadway and Randian inclinations, and find the tracks in this album serve as great atmosphere to the game, as well as very atmospheric tracks by themselves.
Also, look for Dream (Pied Pipers Version), not available in this album, but used in the Bioshock 2 teaser trailer, and is actually very reminiscent of the Bioshock atmosphere as well.
A very nice soundtrack for a fab game.
The music fits quite well for the game, adding to the atmosphere. Overall, very matching to how old the game is suppose to feel.
Good stuff but no original score!
I agree that the period music really sets up the horror in the game but to me what's missing is all the original score composed for the game itself. The scenes from the beginning of the game and the scenes where you're roaming the ocean floor are the best pieces for conveying the overal tragic feel of the game. If it wasn't for those omissions I probably would have bought this.
