I still cant believe that a composer hired a ghost writer for this mess.

Horror music isn't usually good music to listen to out of context. It's supposed to set a certain mood, a mood that is often unpleasant. Resident Evil's music is pretty good for that.

Really, this is kinda why I don't listen to OSTs unless it's something that I know by heart, or the music is for some reason incredibly exceptional to the point that it transcends its original intent - A lot of OSTs are meant to be listened in context, either they set the mood, or they amplify the mood set by the visuals. IMO, they simply don't work nearly as well on their own.

I swear i never heard this RE track ONCE in the actual game. Thank goodness! Otherwise, the rest of the score is hauntingly brilliant!

@WaveBoy I believe it was only in the Director's Cut DualShock version

Yeah, guitars are cool.

My musical project Comet Tail made a couple of recordings.

The music is different in the Director's Cut version for some reason, the original song is much more bearable.

Ahh ic. Yeah, when Resident Evil came out back in 96' i went full on Long Box. One of the greatest games of all time. I was absolutely blown away by the highly detailed prerendered environments, the fact that these characters were using body language and actually speaking to each other regardless if it sounded like it was spat out of some horrible cheesy Horror B movie...I embraced that shniz full throttle and loved every minute of it. Best Resident Evil game period, even better than 2 imo. Not to mention it has the best soundtrack in the entire series.
