So this could have been the first 20 seconds for the entire song, and I probably would have still loved it. Reminds me of Lost in Translation for no reason at all.
Firstly, Gustavo Santaolalla is a musical genius. This is where my music nerd teams up with my gaming nerd. The Last of Us soundtrack, uncharacteristic of a zombie-esque game, is a perfect fit. It also reminds me of Diablo II music (Matt Uelmen), which was also fantastic, although slightly dated towards the 90’s. Anyways, this soundtrack makes me surprisingly productive. I can listen to it on repeat while doing hours of work. That being said, I am weird and find zombie/apocalyptic movies enjoyable and almost soothing to watch.
