HEALTH to Score Max Payne 3

Rockstar Games, the company behind the Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead, and Max Payne franchises, announced that L.A. noise pop act HEALTH would be composing the score to the highly anticipated Max Payne 3, the first new game in the series in nearly a decade. Video game fans all know that Rockstar is the undisputed master of game soundtracks, and if they've put their faith in HEALTH to make the music for this long-delayed project, our expectations are high. For those unfamiliar with the franchise, the Max Payne games revolve around the titular main character, a former NYPD cop turned private investigator after the murder of his wife and infant child and in Max Payne 3 he's become a body-guard apparently mowing down the entire population of a Rio de Janeiro favela.

On a more personal note, Rockstar does have our complete faith in the scoring for their games, and if there past successes are any indication, this should be a huge triumph. Back in 2002, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City came out and its soundtrack consisting entirely of 80s new-wave, pop, hip-hop, rock, and much more was what got me interested in good music. I asked for the entire soundtrack for Christmas that year and devoured it and still listen to it regularly to this day. It's not much of an exaggeration to say that had it not been for that game opening up my eyes to other worlds of music (especially electronic pop), I would likely not be writing about music right now. So, here's hoping that Max Payne 3 and HEALTH continue to honor the high bar that other games in the company's library have set.
