MetroLastLightSoundtrack

A majority of the Original Soundtrack for Metro Last Light was written by Ukrainian composer Alexey Omelchukand produced by Deep Silver (and presumably, THQ). While infrequently returning to the root pieces of series, Metro Last Light's soundtrack received praise from fans and critics alike for a dynamic variance between atmospheric and sombre pieces, to chilling numbers, to heroic and thrilling scores. Unlike most songs of Metro 2033, most of Last Light have definitive titles. The musical pieces of Metro Last Light are as follows (in a rough, general, order of sequence they can be heard in, or otherwise of notability). On the 3rd of September 2013 the official soundtrack was released on Sumthing music with over 2 and a half hours worth of music and 60 tracks altogether along with the official titles of each track. It is available for $9.99 on Sumthing music.com

LyricsEdit

I saw a savior, a savior come my way.
I thought I'd see it in the cold light of day.
But now I realize that I'm only for me.

If only I could see, return myself to me.
And recognize the poison in my heart.
There is no other place, no one else I face.
The remedy will agree with how I feel.

Here in my reflecting, what more can I say.
For I am guilty for the voice that I obey.
Too scared to sacrifice a choice chosen for me.

If only I could see, return myself to me.
And recognize the poison in my heart.
There is no other place, no one else I face.
The remedy to agree with how I feel.

Though not playing when Artyom finds a Duplet and is pounced by a watchman, "Found a Shotgun" does play in Metro Last Light - as the default dread-filled score to the Dead City. Despite a number of crashes and loud bangs in the piece, none of them are in the context of the level, leaving them rather flat in-game.
