Kow Otani - Wander & the Colossus: Roar of the Earth

Aside from being one of my favorite games, Shadow of the Colossus features a brilliant soundtrack from the masterful composer Kow Otani. 'Wander & the Colossus: Roar of the Earth' (or simply 'Roar of the Earth') is literally a colossal, 42-track full-orchestra wonderland; everything from organ, bells, flute, full-scale choir ensembles, to sweeping percussive rhythms immerse you in the vast world Otani helped define and shape.

Fans of the game will probably appreciate it more, but the soundtrack is still a treat for the uninitiated. Listening in headphones, it's not hard to realize the beautiful but unforgiving world Otani has outlined -- of behemoths scourging through an epic and tranquil uncertainty.
