VGMO: “Horizon Zero Dawn Soundtrack”: 5/5 starsLike0

VGMO gave our soundtrack 5 out of 5 stars!

I have to commend Joris de Man, The Flight, Niels van der Leest, and Jonathan Williams for Horizon Zero Dawn Original Soundtrack.  Despite the length of the album, this is not a Halo score that suggests an impending apocalypse with every orchestral track; nor is it Skyrim, where a few themes pepper a grandiose, atmospheric choral symphony.

Instead, think more along the lines of The Witcher 3 – but lighter, with a few more woodwinds. In an era of games where the goal seems to be to make everything as big and bombastic as possible (especially in the world of Western RPGs), de Man et al. approached the score with a few memorable themes and (generally) light instrumentation, and transformed them into an 80-track album that feels not only colorful and varied, but connected; regardless of the section I’m listening to, I know I’m listening to Horizon Zero Dawn.

If you have read any of our interviews, it should be clear that that is exactly what we aimed for!
