Hey there, forums. Recently I played a game that released in 2010 named Neir. It never got too popular, and in my opinion is highly underrated. First of all the game was a great 30 hours of my life well spent. It was, I guess, a JRPG; with a great story, great characters, good voice acting, wonderful combat, and a masterful soundtrack. The soundtrack was so good in fact, that it may be my favorite game soundtrack ever.
It's an orchestral OST that's about 3 hours overall in length. It focuses heavily in acoustic instruments, orchestral instruments, different drums, and beautiful vocals. What really stood out to me out to me was how they decided to do the vocals. Throughout the game, you'll hear some vocals that sound: Russian, Germanic, Japanese, and other languages. I went the entire game wondering what these beautiful songs were saying. Well, after a bit of research I found out that they asked their lyric writer to take a language and imagine if it drifted for 1000 years. This boils down to the songs being almost gibberish using different languages.
Despite this though, each vocal piece manages to convey a feeling, to move the listener, and really impress. I've been listening to this OST on and off for a good few months, loving it every time I listen. I'm looking for other opinions too though. What did you guys think of the musical score?

Glad I'm not the only one in love with this game's music. I've had Kaine's theme fav'd for a long time now- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fu2NC88TYjI
