Review

Overall this album wouldn't be particularly suitable for roleplaying as most of the tracks are designed for a 'modern day' movie and thus work well with the subject. The music is mainly happy, with a few modern pieces, or sad. Not a lot of variety.

Track six and fourteen, however, are simply fantastic. I am still trying to think of how to integrate them into one of my current projects, as though you should fit music to the words, timing is of the essence.

Overall a nice soundtrack, but not particularly suitable for roleplaying.
