Like many fans of the Halo series, I was disappointed by my first listen of the tracks of the Halo 4 music. This was not the Halo I loved and was familiar with. However, as I played the game, I found that the music drove the action just as the soundtracks to the earlier games had and I began to like what I was hearing. Eventually I was hooked and bought the CD. It is now one of my favorites. Unfortunately, the fan base was not as accepting as I was, causing 343 to try making a soundtrack closer to the original three. I have not played Halo 5 yet, nor heard much of the music, but the little I listened to on Amazon did not inspire me. I hope I am wrong. For me, I am sorry that they did not stick to their guns and support the new composer because I would have liked to see the music evolve as the soundtracks from Bungie did.
