More unplugged music with some Gregorian chanting
How would you improve the H5 OST?
More cowbell. It needs more cowbell.bramoala wrote:First off, don't think I'm implying that the H5 OST is bad. IMO it might be the most entertaining OST of all the Halo titles, in that I can enjoy listening to the entire OST from beginning to end. In fact, if I had to score it (not taking OST game-integration into account) I'd give it a 9.2/10.
That being said, I would like to see more choir integrated in the music, more bass-line-heavy pieces (think In Amber Clad H2), more ambient pieces and a little more integration of classic Halo themes (again, like In Amber Clad).
What about you, what would you like to see more of (and/or less of) in the H6 OST?
What'd you think about Blue Team? Sounds like what you're looking for.MightySusway wrote:I think it shouldn't rely on the original series music. I feel like it does not make any sense in the new story 343 is creating. Halo 5 OST was great, but I would have liked more slower songs and more songs focused on percussion.
In general I agree, we need more drums, but I think H5 did better than H4 in having them included. I would especially like more drumkit.KingRawer wrote:I think that the main thing lacking in Halo 5's (and 4's) soundtrack was drums. There is a serious lack of both tribal drums and drumkits.
Make more use of traditional halo sounds. Pretty much more emphasis on drums, piano, choir, violin.H BIRYANI wrote:More integration of the old. It says "Halo" on the cover from CE to 5, so why did the music style need to change when Halo is still Halo. While there are a few good tracks from 4-5, there is nowhere near the critical acclaim these two soundtracks have garnered compared to the old style soundtrack.

I understand what you're saying here. Originally, this post was more about the music in the OST than the integration in-game which in my opinion is something that the original trilogy blows the new games out of the water on. Halo 5 did a lot better job than Halo 4 in regards to integrating the music with the gameplay, but they still have not reached the level of the original trilogy outside of a handful of moments each IMO.Kell of Salt wrote:Halo 5's soundtrack sounds straight out of a Marvel movie
Martys music stood on it's own as iconic, standalone music, that was Halo
If Halo 5's music is a "9/10" Marty's music was a 13/10
No disrespect to the H5 composer, it's just a tough job to follow marty, cause lets just say it, Marty is the John Williams of video game music, Halo is the Star Wars of video games in terms of music. but it couldn't hurt to actually try and sound like Halo music
