"Nemesis" is fast paced, with some good drops. "Arrival" focuses more on the original's violin work with a new beat, and "Revival" is a bit calmer, focusing more on the original's singing.
* Another two great pieces are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIv2brYUaps Push Through]], which plays when the Chief's driving a tank to clear the Covies attacking the ''Infinity''; and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWG5UJdvcnk Convoy]], the thumping track which plays when the Chief boards the Mammoth.

* With ''Halo 4'', Neil Davidge proves himself a worthy successor to O'Donnell (who is contracted to Bungie, not 343 Industries), with "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqL5eu8DOgI Arrival]]", an epic piece that plays during the final battle of the Campaign.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cu6rnIjU0Y Belly of the Beast]]". It plays during the first level of the game, but it wouldn't be out of place in a monster movie or an epic reveal. A slow buildup to pounding drums, it is the epitome of "something big and ominous is coming, and there is ''nothing'' you can do to stop it".
* On the note of ''Halo 4'', we have the very first title in the soundtrack, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtvQ3YtdwMQ "Awakening"]], an ungodly mix of electric guitars, choir, and violins.
* Also, the Infinity's/[=UNSC=]'s {{Leitmotif}} in ''Halo 4'', "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmAPACP5nPM To Galaxy]]". A slow build-up leading to a sweeping, heroic, but serious-sounding piece. The build-up section is used as background music for the multiplayer menu, but other segments are used in Spartan Ops and of course, in the [=UNSC=]'s "We are the giants now" BadassBoast intro. There's also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9IJff64R-U a cover of "To Galaxy"]] by violinist Taylor Davis and pianist Lara de Wit.
* Another awesome ''Halo 4'' track is "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npMi1Il2n7w Faithless]]", an awesome track with a pounding beat that plays while carving through Covenant on Ivanoff Station, and in a few Covenant-themed Spartan Ops missions.
* [[http://youtu.be/aja93GXDsbY Revival]] starts off with an ethereal chant that ends with a surprisingly good bass drop, and plays when you first meet the Didact to great effect.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B70lpTUyxAA Green and Blue.]] John and Cortana. Earth and sky. Life and sadness. Whatever you read into the title, this song is a powerful, compelling dirge, and it was cut criminally short in the actual game. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXjUGO0-0Gg Remix version by KOAN Sound]], while different in style and tempo (and only half the length), is equally beautiful.
