I agree. Room had the best soundtrack in my opinion too and Downpour had the worst one too. I did like one track from downpour though:


I thought this track definitely added to the creepiness of the town when you were exploring it

Wow, never heard that track before... I don't really remember it. For a game that wasn't all that scary, this track is pretty unnerving and creepy.
There was a PIE here.
It's PYRAMID now.

You hear it when you are exploring the town and the dynamic, intense part (around the middle of the track) happens when it starts to rain which results in the screamers become more prolific and aggressive.

Interesting, I don't have any recollection of the track at all... That's too bad too, as it's a pretty good track. I think that Daniel Licht is a very good composer, I just think that he wasn't quite right for Silent Hill. But that's just me.

Yeah I saw an interview of him on youtube regarding his position as composer of the game and he admitted wanting to have a distinct, unique style and that it was going to be hard to do that and do a good job at the same time given Akira's strong reputation.

He definitely did have a unique touch.

Even though I think Akira is a better composer, and knows the feel that Silent Hill music should have, I still appreciate that they kind of tried to shake things up, and even though Downpour had the worst soundtrack of the series imo, it was still decent and unique.
