AllMusic Review by

With over 25 motion pictures to his credit, composer Austin Wintory once again brings his cinematic and classically trained ear to the gaming world with 2012's Journey. Having previously composed the soundtrack for the video game Flow, 2012's Journey -- developed exclusively for PlayStation 3 -- is a sweeping orchestral album with hints of ambient cross-cultural world music throughout. Set in a sandy desert environment, Journey allows players to interact without words or names until the game's conclusion. In that sense, Wintory's enigmatic and atmospheric soundscapes are perfectly suited for the exotic and mysterious game.
