Halo's True Identity Recovered

Tom Salta did an amazing job bringing the qualities of Halo back in this album. I love how he incorporated the old Halo themes and mixed it with his own flavor. I can hear inspiration from both Marty, Steven and Neil in his music. He brought the best qualities of all of them into one place. Even though some gamers won't be able to experience this music in-game, let them know that they are missing out on one heck of a musical experience. From classic Halo monk chants to emotional strings to bombastic percussion, this album truly embodies all that I love about Halo's music. I truly hope that Tom returns to produce the music for Halo 5 or have some part in it's production. As much as I love Neil's work on Halo 4, Tom's understanding of Halo's musical formula has convinced me that he has more of a handle of what makes Halo magical - the music. I would go so far as to say that I wish 343i would make a patch to Halo 4 that replaces Neil's music with the music Tom composed in this album. It just fits so much better. Don't get me wrong, I do think that Neil did an amazing job with creating a musical identity for the Forerunners in Halo 4. The grungy, ambient and metallic sound fits the Forerunner persona perfectly. What I truly wish is for Tom, Neil, Rippy and Kazuma to collaborate on Halo 5's score. They all have special niches in the music and it would be a shame to see any of them go. After listening to this album, my dwindling faith and interest in this franchise has been renewed. I have always loved Marty's work with Halo and am a proud owner of all his scores. I look forward to Halo's future and hope that it's identity will always remain intact. One crucial mistake 343i made when creating Halo 4 was leaving out the Halo theme. I still ask myself why they would leave out the heart of Halo. Playing Halo 4 without that chill inducing chant was disappointing. Now that Tom has released this album, I am finally satisfied. Thank you Tom. Do yourself a favor and buy this album. You won't regret it.

better than halo 4

much better sounds kinda like halo again

An excellent Halo score

This album by Tom Salta is easily equal to anything composed by O'Donnell and Salvatori. Many fans were upset at the lack of "classic" Halo themes in Halo 4. They won't be disappointed here.
This score delivers an excellent mix between the older style of O'Donnell/Salvatori and the newer, more cinematic approach of Davidge and Jinnouchi. Salta makes good use of piano and choral elements in a manner very reminescent of older Halo soundtracks. Look for references to previous scores such as a very Halo: Reach-sounding segment in Eliminate The Resistance, or the classic Halo theme in Rising.

Tom Salta is a superb composer; he should definitely come back and compose for more Halo titles.
