Music Monday: “Stealing the Show”

Greg Edmonson is the man. If you don’t remember anything else I say, remember that Greg Edmonson is the man. The Uncharted 2: Among Thieves soundtrack is a loaded soundtrack. The Uncharted 2 soundtrack is better than good and if you don’t want to take my word for it you can look up all of the awards that it has won. Since I have to choose just one song from such a good soundtrack I’m going to cop out and take the opening theme.

This is the quintessential definition of a song with movement. As much as it pains me to admit this, a lot of video game songs doesn’t have the story telling capabilities that other forms of music seem to have. The Uncharted 2 Main Theme does not suffer from this limitation. From beginning to end, this song takes you on a journey, each section captures different aspects of Drake as a character and his quest. I usually like to choose different instruments and sections that I think are the stars of a piece but that would be inappropriate in this case. The best part of this song are the transitions that move the song from section to section seamlessly.
