Sumthing Else Music Works presents the original soundtrack to Forza Motorsport 7, featuring original music from composers Kaveh Cohen and Michael Nielsen. The game immerses players in the exhilarating thrill of competitive racing. From mastering the new motorsport-inspired campaign to collecting a wide range of cars to experiencing the excitement of driving at the limit, this is Forza reimagined...

Kaveh Cohen and Michael Nielsen Cohen's soundtrack takes the duo on a new path. For the previous game in the franchise, Forza Motorsport 6, they created a hybrid symphonic score.

For Forza Motorsport 7, Cohen says: "Our conversations early on with Turn 10 Studios centred around the idea of ‘humanizing’ the game, from the GUI to the overall aesthetic look and feel and the music. In thinking of the notion of humanizing the music, the game’s audio director felt this could be translated into a band playing together in a room, which in turn after some creative discovery, led us down the road of writing essentially a vintage rock score".

The end result is poles apart from the previous score. There are 38 tracks here (1 hr, 56 min, 36 sec) and pretty much all of them could be an instrumental break in a rock band's set.

Personally I found it to be pitched at just the right level, and it certainly works really well to get you fired up in the game. But, more importantly, it works incredibly well as a stand alone album.
