The time is nearing 2:00am on a Wednesday morning. Outside is dark, a swirling mist of rain and blurred lights. As I stare out the window, the white light from my laptop illuminates my face. Around me, a room that is as quiet as the deserted roads and parking lots I see from my window. This is the scene that surrounds me as I listen to the 2009 Halo 3: ODST Original Soundtrack. Anyone who knows me well knows that I love the Halo series, especially the music that surrounds it.
