Strange thing is, I don't recognise any of these tracks from S.T.A.L.K.E.R. I probably wouldn't be far off in saying that they've been confused with another game. In this, I can hear bits of Call of Duty 4 with some Eastern tones, but nothing of SoC.
It is not the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Soundtrack, which is freeware, but a few tracks are really from the game. Especially theme7 which is the Stalker ingame menu music and is missing from the official soundtrack.
Pretty sure these arnt from STALKER, any version. The soundtrack for Shadow of Chernobyl was done by both Mooze and Firelake, the soundtracks for Clear Sky were done by.. actually Im not sure, but I think it was just Mooze.. Call of Pripyat was done by Alexey Omelchuk.
Very good themes. When I was listening to them, I thought "Ah... That's what I call soundtrack!". Theme number 4 is very energical, it's good as main theme, when you're making an action movie on, for example, YouTube.
PS: Did you notice, that theme7 was a menu theme in every S.T.A.L.K.E.R.?
This is from STALKER. This is from *that* STALKER, that did not see the light of day. From Oblivion Lost. Before THQ has cut nearly all of its content and created a huge mess that is Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl. THQ attempted to create similar mess with Stalker2, they even required the plot to be shifted outside of exUSSR, this is why Grigorovich halted the project. Do not ask me where I have this info.
As a proof that this IS the original STALKER OBLIVION LOST, pick Track 6 and hear about 5:00.
Themes 3, 4, 5 and 6 are trailer musics for STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl, and Theme 7 is the title screen/menu theme, but...
Themes 1, 2 and 8 have absolutely nothing to deal with STALKER!
But the tracks are good! I would have pur a 10 if it was only actual STALKER tracks
Love this sountrack, but like all the track in the site, 128k mp3
make music very thin, sounds very bad everywhere, uploader/coder need seriously to learn about digital domain in loudness range and music definition.
