In Response To: Calling all Halo soundtrack experts (Jordan117)

: I'm in the process of streamlining my music library to save space on my
: devices, and while I dearly love Marty's symphonic stylings, I can't
: justify keeping enough room for *all* the various Halo soundtracks. Partly
: because of the many ambient/"filler" tracks, but mainly because
: of all the recycled material. Some examples: * Perilous Journey (Halo 1)
: is very similar to Peril (Halo 2)

: * Impend (Halo 2) is identical to Epilogue (Halo 2 Volume 2)

: * Mombasa Suite: Broken Gates (Halo 2 Volume 2) is a lot like Tsavo
: Highway Suite: Out of Shadow (Halo 3)

: * Earth City (Halo 2) is re-orchestrated in Halo Legends

: And of course the main theme makes many appearances throughout all
: albums .

: So, for those deeply familiar with all the soundtracks, what do you think is
: the best way to boil all these remixes and revisitations into one master
: Halo canon? If you strip out all the ambient and in-between pieces, focus
: on the core melodies, pick the best instance of each, and fold them all
: together, what would be your master Halo soundtrack?

: (Also, I'm not familiar at all with the OSTs outside of the original trilogy,
: so if you can share your favorites from ODST/Reach/Legends/Wars/Halo 4,
: that would be fantastic!)

I don't think I could, especially since when you get down to it so much of Halo 3 is duplicative, even if the contextual presentations are different. Enjoy it all together!
