Noriyuki Asakura strikes again, but is it better than Tenchu 1 ???

This is the official soundtrack by Noriyuki Asakura for the Playstation 1 videogame Tenchu 2: Birth of the Stealth Assassins. The little boxes you see in the Artist name are the result of iTunes staff deciding not to bother with the effort of typing the name in English. :( This album features a mix of short songs, more like sound effects (or mood effects) from the levels and some full length songs. This is contrasted to Tenchu 1 where the songs were all full length pieces. Still, you get a decent amount of full length songs and some mood effects thrown in. Sound-wise, the music here is VERY similiar to Tenchu 1, a few of which are sped-up versions of original Tenchu 1 songs. There are a few new songs here, but the album doesn't break new ground like the first one. The variety found in the first soundtrack is still something to behold. The music is a mix of different elements, instrumentals, very few vocals, different orchestral patterns which are nicely varied. Some songs are faster paced, others slower, and a few change in the song itself!!! I think Noriyuki shows a good diversity here, but I wish he had more full length songs on this album. That said, the songs that are here are very good and if you enjoyed the first Tenchu 1: Stealth Assassins soundtrack, you will like this one very much. Keep your ears open for track 10 -Syukumei. There are many small acousitc details which show the wide variety of instruments, and excellent sound engineering. Thus the music really creates a immersive mood, it almost approaches the level of excellence from Tenchu 1, track 5 (the snow level). Tenchu 2: Birth of the Stealth Assassins is a prequel of sorts to the events in Tenchu 1. It shows the young ninjas of the Azuma ninja clan; Rikimaru, Ayane and Tatsumaru as they embark on their respective careers. Moving and emotionally engaging, Tenchu 2 represents one of the hallmarks of gaming excellence on the Playstation 1 console. The music is no less impressive, it is powerful, subtle with combinations of string instruments and percussion that convey the emotions from the game. So quit reading and go buy it already! Then you can google Tenchu and find out more about 2 of the greatest games on the PS1. Prairie Sky
