Huh, is this some kind of remake? I really don't get it why they don't switch the dev team back to the original Team Silent. Origins and Homecoming really can't reach the original SH titles...

Anyway, looking forward to some new (remix?) material from Yamaoka and probably McGlynn. According to the Wikipedia she's at least involved in the directing work. I really hope for some more vocal work by her.

It's not exactly a remake, they're referring to it as a re-imagining of the first game.

I wonder why Gamestop's page says this CD contains "18 of your favorite tracks from the Silent Hill series" when they're calling it the Shattered Memories soundtrack? Which is it? I want new Yamaoka please, not a best of album.

I've heard (rumors) they'r reusing old tracks, and there is no new music.

It's been confirmed Yamaoka is doing a new soundtrack.

Even the game's "PR bullet points" say "Silent Hill: Shattered Memories will feature an all-new soundtrack by acclaimed series composer Akira Yamaoka."

Sorry for the bump, but a music rip of the album has been released already and it's the remake's music. It doesn't have any music from any earlier games.

(But four Mary Elizabeth McGlynn songs? Dammit I wish I owned a Wii so I could preorder this!)

Oh, one of the tracks is "Always On My Mind". You know, the song that Pet Shop Boys covered in the 80's? This song + Yamaoka arrangement + McGlynn singing = MIND BLOWN.

Room of Angel, I Want Love and now this...

Hearing this score makes me really sad. Not because the score is bad, on the contrary - it's incredibly good (so good that I just ordered it).
But because Yamaoka left Konami... I really hope we're still going to see him work again on another Silent Hill game. And of course this would mean him working with McGlynn.

Anyway, the last track (Hell Frozen Rain) is my favorite. Had it on repeat for nearly an hour today - so good... *g*

Can anyone confirm who among the three people listed for writing "Always on my Mind" wrote the music, and who wrote the lyrics? I always find it so frustrating when these things are conflated...

It seems like they all are responsible for the lyrics & the composition.
At least i think so... you won't find any details anyway.
