    DX.MD soundtrack and composer, Michael McCann

    Michael McCann (also known as Behavior) is a Canadian composer for television, video games, and film.
    He is best known for composing the scores to the video games Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

    McCann's music incorporates elements of electronic, orchestral and traditional acoustic instruments, and often includes the use of world, choral, and solo vocals (primarily female, and primarily lyric-less). His scoring work, as well as solo and production work, bridges multiple genres including ambient, world, jazz, break-beat, post-rock, trip-hop, drum and bass, industrial, rock and pop.

    All music is good for the soul... although the more "Deus-sexy" it is; the better.

    Here's a sweet trailer music remix:

    I'm not even a fan of Metal, but I enjoyed Little V's cover.

    We can't have a Deus Ex music thread without these emotional love ballads.

    Not targeting you personally here, but why does everybody and their mother always say this? There is an ungodly high amount of crap in country, but saying one likes all genres besides this one always felt a bit odd. There's so much junk out there, in every single genre, that by breaking what you like into genres, and then excluding only one, makes it all self-contradictory. A good sound is a good sound, even if everybody has their preferences.

    While I do like what's good (to me) in all genres, personally the oddity of a unique voice trumps anything else, which is probably why I enjoy good blues more than everything else. This is where personal tastes come into play.

    No worries, I like questions.
    The answer is not as complicated as you might think and it isn't self-contradictory. I have listened to country music... but it just doesn't do anything for me.
    My music library is massive; but I have never found one C&W track I actually connect with.

    Guess what I'm trying to say is when it comes to music (or any art really), breaking down what you like into genres is entirely irrelevant. As it turns out, in any given genre, you probably like a specific artist, or a specific sound reproduced by many artists, and are indifferent to everything else in that one genre. And even there, it's likely you only really like specific songs from an artist, and not their entire repertoire. So braking it down to genres makes little sense. You may hear a thousand country songs and never click, until one specific instance, in a specific point in your life, one song comes up on the radio while you're doing a long haul, canyon-carving drive and it all makes perfect sense. You may never like any other song in the genre ever again, without taking anything away from that particular moment.

    Hence why I never understood that sentence, which everybody always says, in one variation or another.

    Who knows. I consider my music taste to be incredibly diverse; but just can't get into the C&W vibe.
    I have yet to hear a track that helps me fall in love with it.

    Some probably stumbled upon this one, but I think it's worth posting just in case we want to be reminded of Blade Runner and Terminator:



    It does have the 80's movies vibe.

    Even 80s synth can't make HR's soundtrack interesting. Very sad.

    Red Dead Redemption has such a good soundtrack. All of the four songs with vocals fit their respective scenes preeeeetty gosh darn nicely. On the subject of country, I dig it. I like all music. My parents took care of that. But I'd say The Highwaymen and their solo acts are my favorites. I'm not really a connoisseur of fine trailer rock saying the biggest country super group of all time is my fave, but still.

    I have the RDR soundtrack... I do indeed like the spaghetti-western sound.
    I had no idea it would be classified as classic C&W music though, I was thinking on the lines of Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson etc.
    I found this huge list of 'country' genres.

    So, you want to say that absolutely nothing happens when you hear good old "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" sound?

    I enjoy spaghetti-western music .I just don't enjoy "classic" C&W.

    This synthesizer track is not quite the 80s, its 1979. I still enjoy listening to it after all these years.

    This is a pretty good mix, I must admit. Definitely has that 80s vibe. Speaking of Blade Runner, I listened to its OST recently - can't go wrong with it, brilliantly composed and fits in perfectly with the dystopian world. Am I safe to assume that a lot of people here are fans of Blade Runner and/or Philip K. Dick? For me, Blade Runner is my number one film to come out of the 80s, and that's quite a feat too considering the abundance of fantastic films from that era. I'll never get tired of watching it!

    Sure, it's just a pity that some of us are too young to remember and it's not possible to listen to everything.

    Close enough to be called the 80's. Nice.

    I've listened to the OST just yesterday, but I've watched the movie only once. The amount of 80's classics is undeniable, but my all time fav movies are Terminators so I'll go with T1 as movie from that period that first comes to my mind.
    However, while while listening to this particular DX mix, my thoughts went from Terminator, Total Recall, Blade Runner, Depeche Mode, Boy George, Camouflage and what not. The power of synth, I say.

    Yup, gotcha. Are there perhaps some special tracks of that genre that are your guilty pleasure?

    Heh, and no wrinkles and fast metabolism. For the rest, I don't know as I already have knees of a granny.
    But seriously, I feel like I missed the best of world music because of not being born.

    Same here, don't like C & W myself, Metal, other genres I loosely like, you could say guilty pleasures. I'm just happy McCann is returning, his stuff is so visceral. Halve of HR was the music for me.

    I like the 80s aesthetics, for sure. I think I like modern, 80s-influenced things more than actual 80s things though. Like Hotline Miami, and this (it's pretty Deus Ex-y when you listen to the lyrics http://lyrics.wikia.com/The_Protomen:Light_Up_The_Night):

    I'll give McCann props for the Double Agent OST. He did a very nice job solidifying the depressing theme of that game.
