Like all Halo OST except Halo 5.
Halo 4 had only few good tracks:
- Arrival (Norin & Rad Remix)
- Green and Blue (Koan Sound Remix)- Halo 4 Remix - Main Theme To Galaxy (Orchestra Version) by Plasma3Music & Pl511 ---> Only on Youtube (Better than the original!)Except for the first 2 non of those popped up in the game.
Music makes a lot to the game and the Halo feeling also vanished a good bit with the change of the composer Martin O'Donnell.
Besides did anyone notice that the music in Halo 4 was hardly present? Even in the last level before you reach the Didact the music was so quiet
(And that track "Arrival" is one of my favorites in Halo 4. So epic). But put into the background so much and that really annoyed me.
Thinking about Halo 5 there is no track that gave me a special feeling saying "Wow!". No track giving me goosebumps or so.
I mean in Halo 5 they got the music out of the background and made it more present... but therefore has no impressive tracks.
Halo 1-3 was always cool to listen with it's memorizing music. ODST, Wars and Reach had their own cool music style and which simply fitted perfectly into the Halo world.
343... please just get back Martin O'Donell would you?
Halo 4 had more than a few good tracks imo. To name some of my favorites (Aside from 117
, which you already mentioned): Awakening
, Green and Blue
, Never Forget (Midnight Version)
. The music doesn't sound like "Halo", but that doesn't necessarily make it bad. While it can definitely be argued that Davidge should have tried to incorporate a few classic themes into the soundtrack (Halo 5 did a better job of this), I still think that much of the new music works really well with the story and setting.
I'm gonna have to disagree with you about the music hardly being present, since it was a key part of why certain moments worked so well in the campaign. Requiem
enhances the sense of wonder felt after you step out of the cave and take in the beautiful skybox and scenery of this new alien world. Immaterial
makes you feel powerless as you watch the scientists on Ivanoff Station be horrifically composed. 117
urges you forward as you pilot the broadsword through the perilous trenches of the Didact's ship. Green and Blue
evokes various emotions as you say goodbye to Cortana. Those are just a few examples. The music was very much at the forefront of the experience, just as it always is in Halo games.
