My Top 7 Video Game Soundtracks

5. Spyro 2: Gateway To Glimmer/Ripto's Rage
Composer: Stewart Copeland

Ah... the waves of nostalgia have crashed over me and they're delightful!

The first four Spyro games music scores were composed by Stewart Copeland, ex-drummer of The Police and the man can certainly compose.

Spyro 2 has the most nostalgia music for me as it was the first game in the series that I owned and one I can come back to again and again.

Here Copeland offers excellent scores which he composed by playing through the levels first, to get a feel for how the music should fit into each world.

You can certainly hear the wintery tones in Winter Tundra, the excitement of being in Sunny Beach and the tranquil tones that are perfectly captured in Aquaria Towers.

Each theme offers a sense of adventure that excels in presenting what Spyro should be about; freedom to be able to explore to your heart's content.
