- REVIEW -
 
Well, I'm another one of those die-hard Riven fans. I wouldn't even waste my time giving this CD a bad review, since I know that there are certain fans out there to murder me in my sleep if I did that. Anyway. On to the actual subject. First of all, the game was the best I've ever played, and this was enhanced by the soundtrack. It was calm, serene, and great for falling asleep to. The music blended very nicely together, and it had good rhythms in the places where it was supposed to. If anyone has read the liner notes, one can tell that Robyn has taken great care in writing this. Neither of the Millers would do anything without care, I don't think, seeing what they did with Myst and Riven. It reflects the theme of Riven well, such as the villagers' style of music, mostly persussional.
 
I can sit there, soaking in the tunes, and visions of Tay, the wahrk throne room, the wahrk idol, the village, the temple, etcetera pop into my mind, even when I hadn't looked at the song title, and that's good for me, not a great music interpreter. Very powerful stuff, this collection of notes. Worth the money you'll spend on it.
