If you dug the techno sheen of TRON LEGACY then you’ll likely love the vibe of DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION, an impressively atmospheric score that also paints its game grid in hypnotic, neon-sounding colors. Before you cry foul on composer Michael McCann for trying some unfair light cycle move on Daft Punk, know that DEUS EX was generated even further back, making McCann’s to-the-second technological wash of eerily pulsating samples and electronics that much more futuristically impressive.
Having composed the ruthless spy suspense for SPLINTER CELL: DOUBLE AGENT, McCann gives DEUS EX’s industrial operative a propulsive sense of mission as he infiltrates the conspiracy of a biomechanical human revolution. While McCann’s action algorithms are certainly ear catching, it’s his eerie, ethereal stealth abilities that truly give DEUS EX impact.
Haunted voices and chants turn its percolating world into a techno church, whose music worships at the altar of Vangelis and Tangerine Dream. And like his fellow electronic acolytes Daft Punk, McCann’s prayers are answered in style for the thoroughly mesmerizing score of DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION a soundtrack that truly makes the listener feel like they’re part of the ghost in the machine.
