Eh, I’m not really a fan of the theme Steve Vai did with Halo 2. All that extra guitar soloing just sounds corny and out of place to me. The original theme from Combat Evolved that Marty and Michael created will always be the best.
And Steve Vai, there was more to it than just the two mentioned. It was something unique they all accomplished.
You forgot to include Michael Salvatori since he AND Marty were the ones behind the original games score.Yes you’re absolutely correct, I don’t mean to try and discard any of Michael Salvatori’s credit. The 2 of them together truly are the dynamic duo in regards to the legendary music of Halo.
Well, just because you're not a fan of it, or find it corny and out of place, does not mean others feel the same. Even Nile Rodgers was involved, amongst others. I'm not a fan of some of Nile's work like the Diana Ross track Upside Down, but I cannot ignore the work he put into Halo. In fact, there's a fair few names / bands that deserve to be mentioned imo.
You're the first Halo fan that I have heard refer to THIS
as corny and out of place, and if you watch the other video I linked Marty seemed to love it too, oh wait, he put it in the soundtrack. I get not everyone is a rock guitar fan, but corny and out of place ? Don't get that at all. Here's a good watch for any fans that might of missed it. Steve, Nile and Marty.
