Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is out, and so is the game’s soundtrack, composed by original Uncharted composer Greg Edmonson. It’s currently available on iTunes, and while we’re looking forward to hearing Edmonson’s score. we were surprised to learn that electronic artist Carmen Rizzo, who you may remember from his joint interview with Gerard Marino about The Agency, also contributed to the score.

“The Road to Shambhala” is his sole contribution, and is an awesome ethnic electronic track with gritty, overdriven bass synths and ethnic stringed instruments and vocals that create a pretty unique marriage of musical styles.  This is what Rizzo does best, and I’m personally hoping that this track introduces him to gamers out there who aren’t familiar with his work.  It’s apparently being used in advertisements for the game, and it’s one of Rizzo’s biggest contributions to the world of game music thus far. We’re looking forward to checking out Greg Edmonson’s work, and recommend heading over to iTunes to check it out.

What do you make of this frenzy to include mainstream electronic artists on game soundtracks these days?  Are you excited about the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves soundtrack?
