The Shenmue Orchestra Version soundtrack can be summed up in one word: AWESOME. Imagine some of the greatest orchestrated pieces ever created, sprinkle a bit of eastern culture on top, and you come up with the music that's on this CD. There's a total of just over 37 minutes of music on the CD, and track 8 contains a very beautiful vocal song. If this is a sign of what's to come on Sega's upcoming release of this game, then I'm all the more excited. Shenmue's music is a feast for the ears, and I really recommend this CD to music lovers.
