Review

by Steve Townsley
on October 29th, 2004
[3.5 / 5]

The most recognizable film comparison for Richard Jacques' adrenaline-filled scores for the Headhunter video game and its sequel would be a one of the more recent James Bond films, as scored by David Arnold. For those more closely acquainted with the video game genre, saying "James Bond meets Spy Hunter meets Metal Gear" with a touch of Basil Poledouris might be a little bit more accurate.

Elements of action, intrigue, atmosphere all fused together in a succession of action-adventure oriented cues which should please most followers of the genre. La-La Land has provided a great service to score-fans by releasing both scores in this 2-CD set - over 2 hours of adrenaline-charged goodness. The first Headhunter disc comes off as a bit more rounded, with some varying action themes, and softer pensive moments, although between the two CDs, the breakdown is still about 75% action, 25% other themes. The action music is diverse and varies enough to be a pretty decent listen.

If this kind of action-based scoring isn't your cup of musical tea, I'd steer clear, but otherwise, this one's got plenty of value. Highly enjoyable.
