The Silent Hill albums he made is probably the best music you'll hear in any video game.

Akira Yamaoka is my favorite composer. His music is beautiful and has inspierd me in my music more than anyone else.

Ambient moody and soothing music. All of his work for all the Silent Hill games is absolutely beautiful.
