I love all the Halo music, but the music in ODST, especially in the lonely streets of New Mombasa has taken it to a whole new level.
Excellent interview. My favorite music in my favorite game series! Marty's legacy can only grow into the future.
Amazing interview! Thanks GameSpot for doing it.....and of course a big thanks to Marty for is awesome music!
I'm loving this series, more! I thought the composer for Riven was Robyn Miller again... maybe they co-composed?
I like this guys score's. He knows how to crate an atmosphere that keeps the games he's done (Halo in particular) flowing. aspirating musician take notes cause that is how to make great music
Personally, the volume of poo matters. When you take a dump, its not about whether or not you "poo'd", it's all about how MUCH poo there was!!!!
Halo's music is incredible. It's some of my favourite music to listen to (and not just of game music either).
I love HALO's music, it always gives me so much passion in my sad life``` Marty O'Donnell is a great writer, I think, he use music wake up our minds to live wonderfully!
I've purchased all of Marty's HALO soundtracks to date. I can't wait until he makes the transition to feature film OSTs. I could see him composing the score to the next be Sci-Fi flick. BTW, if you haven't gotten ODST yet and are a HALO fan; do yourself a favor and get it ASAP - Firefight alone is worth it Again, though, major props to Marty O'Donnell - The man who revolutionized immersive gameplay through his music.
Marty makes the most iconic and memorable music in videogames.I still listen to the Halo soundtrack on my iPod all the time; and I'm not even a huge Halo fan anymore.This guy is phenomenal.
The soundtrack was always a major part of what makes this franchise so epic. O'Donnell really is very talented
