Silent Hill Sounds Box - worth the price?

I've never had any of the soundtracks aside from SH3(which came with the game) on an actual disk, and I've been comtenplating whether or not to pick up the Sounds Box online.


So yeah my question of course is: Is it worth the steep price tag? I see it on amazon for about $330 new, and as long as the quality is there I don't have an issue spending that much cash.


Also, what's the best place to import it from? I live in Canada and Amazon.ca has it, but I was wondering if there was a better place to pick it up....

Oh good lord.

When I saw this I nearly soiled myself, personally.

I'm really iffy about dropping that much money on anything that isn't a piece of actual hardware, but the Silent Hill OSTs are some of the best game albums I've ever stumbled across.

Personally, I own all the OST and unreleased Albums for the games and the quality of all of them is simply amazing. If you really don't want to drop the money on the soundbox I at the very least highly recommend somehow acquiring most of the main game OSTs. I haven't been disappointed by any of the CDs and it makes some very good driving/going for a walk music.

Some of it is genuinely creepy to listen to still, even without the games while you're just walking at night or are alone in a dark room.

Ahhhh... Yeah, I can understand wanting the physical copies. Plus all the art they've got for everything in the soundbox is just totally awesome.

I have it, a lot of the stuff that's not on the game OST's is pretty weird and some of it is random garbage, but there are some cool tracks there. I'd advise listening to them on youtube first (if they're even there) before you make this purchase. Otherwise it'd just be cheaper to buy all the other OST's separately lol.

The Silent Hill Memories website should hae the answer, don't think so though. Incidentally, that site is as good a place as any to download MP3s of all the albums anyway. It was doing that that led me to these forums :)

that is where I got mine and I'd say it was very much worth it! I just love being able to pop in one of the cds and just listen to all the creepy tracks.

Ah, I guess it doesn't. FYI, the set is going on amazon.com for 200.00, some sellers starting around 160.00.
