Composed by 343 Industries house music maker Kazuma Jinnouchi, the soundtrack for 2015's much anticipated fifth entry in the immensely popular first-person shooter sci-fi series offers up new themes in addition to motifs from previous Halo productions. Jinnouchi recorded the majority of the sessions at Abbey Road studios in London, but choir recordings for six of the tracks were captured at the Rudolfinum music auditorium in Prague, Czech Republic. The two-disc, 39-track set was issued via Universal and is also available in a deluxe three-disc edition. ~ James Christopher Monger
