And also that Amazon link shows comments from O'Donnell.

This one should be a good album, atleast there's no Incubus or Breaking Benjamin in it. Just cd full of O'Donnell & Salvatori.

Whatever... I think Incubus rocked on it. I guess I'll have to rip that other track they did myself. I think there was only one other one, anyway.

Zane Mar 21, 2006

Yeah, seconded. All of the other licensed songs on the CD were pretty awful, but Incubus' songs were amazing. Very prog-meets-Floyd-meets-Radiohead-meets-awesome. I was hesitant about having them on the disc at first, but they made some awesome contributions.

I'll agree with you on the Incubus part.

Did you even hear Incubus's songs on the Halo 2 CD?

Ah, yes, I had just gotten this press release on it:

Sumthing Else Music Works Announces Release of Halo 2 Original Soundtrack Volume Two

Featuring the Acclaimed Original Score Composed and Produced by Martin O'Donnell & Michael Salvatori

NEW YORK, March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Sumthing Else Music Works, Inc., through its licensing relationship with Microsoft Game Studios, proudly presents Halo(R) 2: Original Soundtrack Volume Two.  The highly anticipated Volume Two soundtrack will be released on April 25th to US retail outlets through Nile Rodgers' Sumthing Else Music Works label, the industry leader for licensing and distributing video game soundtracks.

The Halo 2: Original Soundtrack Volume Two CD features nearly 70 minutes of award-winning compositions by Bungie Studios' Audio Director Martin O'Donnell and his writing partner Michael Salvatori, the composers behind the best-selling Halo(R) 2: Original Soundtrack Volume One and Halo(R): Combat Evolved Original Soundtrack.  The signature guitar sounds of revered rock guitarist Steve Vai also make an appearance, courtesy of Epic Records, and the album is produced by veteran music producer and Sumthing Else label founder Nile Rodgers.

Commenting on the back-story to the Volume Two soundtrack release, Martin O'Donnell said, "In the summer of 2004 Nile Rodgers and I decided that it would be a good idea to present the music of Halo 2 in two separate volumes. The first volume would contain all the music that was finished and mixed plus some 'inspired by' music from groups whose music was being used in the game."

Since the first Halo 2 soundtrack was assembled before the game actually shipped, it was always envisaged that the second volume would contain the rest of the game's music, some of which Martin O'Donnell was still composing and producing, and would be rearranged for maximum listening pleasure.

"The music in Halo 2 will play back a little differently each time someone plays the game," explains O'Donnell.  "But on the soundtrack I have the opportunity to arrange the music in an album format.  For Halo 2 Volume Two I decided to use a 'suite' structure that also corresponds to the chapters within the game.  In a sense by listening to this soundtrack you will hear the musical representation on the story of Halo 2.  Enjoy!"
