Silent Hill 2
The music by Akira Yamaoka has accompanied almost every game in the Silent Hill franchise and is as iconic as they come, infusing rock influences and industrial sounds into a score full of mystery and intrigue. The tracks themselves are often juxtaposed with one another, between catchy rock tracks like ‘Theme Of Laura’ and eerie ambient soundscapes such as ‘A World Of Madness’. At the time there was nothing quite like it and it still stands out today: Walking through the corridors of Silent Hill just wouldn’t be the same without Yamaoka’s music. The only downside is that if you listen to it with headphones you won’t hear Pyramid Head coming up from behind you.
