AllMusic Review by

Riven: The Soundtrack contains a selection of alluring ambient tracks by Robyn Miller, a composer who is also one of the creators of the CD-ROM games Riven and Myst. Although the music sometimes lacks definition, it is appealingly atmospheric, evoking the otherworldly images and stories of Riven. The soundtrack doesn't hold as much power when it's separated from the game, but it's still quite interesting, especially for dedicated fans of the game. [The CD's liner notes contain information about the game that is unavailable anywhere else, which may be of interest to hardcore gamers.]
