inFAMOUS Second Son
Game Soundtrack


Composers: Marc Canham, Nathan Johnson and Brain
Label: Sumthing Else Music Works and Sony Computer Entertainment America
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 25 March 2014

The soundtrack to the game inFAMOUS Second Son features 22 original pieces (1hr, 15 min) from the score. This album showcases a collaboration between veteran composers Marc Canham (Far Cry 2, Driver San Francisco), Nathan Johnson (Looper, Brick) and Brain (inFAMOUS 2, Tom Waits, Primus). The score echoes Delsin's experiences finding and fighting his way through the forces that have besieged his city. A blend of chaotic guitars, musical sound design, and driving grooves, this innovative collection is inspired by both the plight of the game's characters and its iconic setting...

The score for inFamous Second Son represents an interesting collaboration of musical talents, as Marc Canham (who contributes 10 tracks; 32 min), Nathan Johnson (6 tracks; 21 min) and Brain (5 tracks 19 min) all bring their varying talents.

Personal favourite tracks include:

Marc Canham's 'Conflict Resolution'; 'The Call' (one of this score's more laid back tracks)'; and the punk-esque 'Smoke and Mirrors'.

Nathan Johnson's 'The Bio-Terrorist Threat' and 'Serial Tagger'.

Brian's 'Double Crossed' and 'Higher Elevation'.

It's a rocking, very modern, score. Sadly this probably means that it will age fairly quickly. But that doesn't really matter. This is a kicking album for the here and now.
