Part of the long-running Megami Tensei series of Japanese role-playing games, Shin Megami Tensei IV: Music Collection is the soundtrack to the 2013 game from developer Atlus. Rather than the overblown, maximalist sound found in a lot of scores in the genre, this game's music has a darker tone, fitting perfectly with the game's serious tone and more mature themes. While fans of the game who enjoyed the music the first time around will certainly enjoy this collection, it's also a strong argument that all RPG scores don't have to be either orchestrated or ridiculously overdone.
