With video-game soundtracks developing into a full-fledged genre of their own, the meticulous re-mixing, compiling, and production on 2004's HALO 2 heralded the trend. Re-worked versions of the video game's original theme music by Michael Salvatori and Marty O'Donnell take up the bulk of the album, with an overall sound that owes a debt to contemporary electronica, New Age ambient, 1970s stadium rock, and orchestral music alike. The surging, cinematic vibe of HALO 2 's original score offsets the alternative-rock and metal acts that populate the rest of the set list.
