Tearaway OST Review
Tearaway was an incredibly popular Vita game in 2013, but being it is a platformer, I didn’t go anywhere near the game, despite how great I heard it was. However, when Sony announced they were selling the soundtrack to the game, of course I couldn’t resist. I was initially nervous about it, since most soundtracks for platformers only sound well inside the game, but my money was not wasted. In fact, it’s already a favorite in my library.
The best way I can describe the unique music from Tearaway is to call it a toned down Katamari Damacy. Some of the tracks automatically make me think of Katamari Damacy’s zany, unpredictable upbeat tunes, such as “The Lab” and “The Traveller.” (“The Traveller” stays in my head for hours at a time, so I won’t subject you to that here.)
But then the soundtrack completely switches gears with a gorgeous violin jig with “Butterflies,” and switches again to woodwind-filled pastorals with the “Gibbett Hill” tracks.
The only complaint I have about this soundtrack is what I had to go through to get it on my computer. You really, really have to want it. Since it’s currently only available through the PSN, I downloaded it via my PS3 and assumed I could then just copy it onto a flash drive, which is what I did with the Flower soundtrack. Oh no, that isn’t possible. Only the Vita can access the music files, so I then had to transfer the OST from my PS3 to the Vita as I wasn’t about to download it again. Then I attempted to transfer the music from my Vita to my MacBook, which houses all of my music, but for whatever reason, my MacBook refuses to connect with the Vita. I set up the application on my PC, transferred the music to my PC, and then moved the music to my Dropbox folder so my MacBook could then access it. If I had hated this soundtrack, my annoyance would have been far greater.
The Tearaway OST is probably one of the most unique soundtracks I’ve ever listened to, and may be the most unique this year. If you’re looking for something that isn’t your typical symphony orchestra, and you’re willing to jump through a hoop or two, give the Tearaway soundtrack a listen. This one is staying in my work rotation for a long time.
