Though Shadow of the Colossus was released over five years ago and I only played through it twice, it remains in my top ten games of all time. The soundtrack plays no small part in that ranking.
Prologue: To the Ancient Land
Right from the start, this OST lets you know that it means business. The opening is haunting, stirring, and uplifting.
The Opened Way: Battle with the Colossus
This track captures the mixture of awe and anxiety that you feel when facing the first colossus.
Silence: Battle with the Colossus
Not all colossi have grand themes. The score for the battle above this mountain-bound lake is as subtle as the hidden currents beneath the water’s surface.
Revived Power: Battle with the Colossus
In stark contrast to Silence is this track. It is aptly named and gives you the strong feeling that victory is just ahead.
Demise of the Ritual: Battle with the Colossus
As melancholy as the game itself, this track from the battle against the final colossus seems to convey the feelings of a hero who has become darkly resolute.
