This soundtrack and the way it fits into the game is simply genius. All of it sounds so true to the army you're playing as that it's almost smile-inducing. There's the epic, heart-pounding orchestra heroic music of the American peace-makers, the smooth new-age pan pipes and some powerful drum beats of the patriotic Chinese warriors, and the cultural, yet slightly malicious plucking of middle-eastern instruments and singing voices for the growing GLA. Pure genius, like a modern version of Lord of the Rings almost. Thanks to iTunes for putting a video game soundtrack on the Store that is definetly worth buying!
One of the first things you notice when you fire up C&C Generals is the rocking background music. All of these tracks are solid, from the Oriental-sounding "Chinese" songs like The Dragon Awakes and The Middle Kingdom (complete with gong-banging!) to the sinister "GLA" pieces, some of which I find reminiscent of Black Hawk Down. The song I find myself listening to again and again is the General's Main Theme; if you don't want to buy the whole album, but you want a great insturmental rock song, you could do worse than to purchase it. My only complaint is that some of the Chinese and GLA songs sound fairly similar- I enjoy them all as background music or in the context of the game, but it's the theme that really gets me pumped.
So glad to have found this. . .
This is quite possibly my favorite soundtrack of all time. This includes games such as Metal Gear Solid and movies such as Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean (Which, mind you, rates as a close second). The innovation and variety are notable, but what marks this sountrack is how very fun it is to listen to! I was overjoyed to find it had been collected in soundtrack form. Please, give it a try.
