Editor's review by Adam Corn (2017-03-03)

Civilization VI Original Game Soundtrack takes a simple concept and executes on it. Civilizations from throughout history and around the globe each get a theme inspired by their musical traditions - most also receiving reprises to represent later historical eras - and are rendered with authentic live instruments. Imagine characters from a classic period film - be it in Rome, Egypt, medieval Europe or France - traversing a town in said film and this would be the soundtrack. The themes are a bit on the somber side yet pleasant to listen to, though I wouldn't say there's any must-hear material. The album release appears to be fairly incomplete - the most notable omission being the main theme "Sogno di Volare", which is on a separate single release - but with two and a half hours of music there's still plenty to enjoy.
