Cliff Martinez - Far Cry 4 O.S.T (Invada)

Having made a rightly-deserved name for himself composing the soundtrack to Drive following stints in bands as legendary as Captain Beefheart and Red Hot Chili Peppers, Cliff Martinez has become a thoroughly in demand producer in these times. The Far Cry series has equally attracted plenty of favourable criticism in gaming circles, and the anticipation around the fourth installment in the series was palpable whether you follow the latest releases or not. An engrossing listen of its own accord, Martinez’s score to Far Cry 4 enhanced the exotic, nail-biting atmosphere of the game a treat, making it truly deserving of a lavish standalone release and confirming the trend for high-end game soundtracks as an important art form in their own right.
