BORDERLANDS: THE PRE-SEQUEL Soundtrack Review

The Borderlands franchise are some of my favorite video games. The characters, the story, the humor, it’s all fantastic and done in a way like no other. We waited for what seemed like forever for Borderlands 2 and now, this past year, the time has come for the third (and possibly final?!) Borderlands games: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! Yessir, it takes place between Borderlands 1 & 2 and offers gameplay like no other. I, sadly, haven’t been able to enjoy it because of it not being released on next-gen consoles. But I have been able to give the soundtrack a thorough listen, and guys, it’s freaking amazing.

I’m a sucker for electronic music (Did I say that right? Man, I sound old.) and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel delivers just that. It not only sounds like current soundtrack, but it also blends different styles from older video games from the 80s. It’s absolutely mind blowing how well this soundtrack plays on its own. Without having seen to much gameplay, I can already imagine what song fits what type of scene. The tracks on disc 1 (1-16) are by Jesper Kyd, while disc two (17-31) is by Des Shore and Justin Mullins. These people understand Borderlands and how it’s sound is just as important as the gameplay itself like no other. I still find myself playing this soundtrack on repeat because it’s just that good. It also serves as great workout mix.
