South Cape
This cheery song is a great introductory tune to the games brilliant soundtrack. The track gives vibes of journeying through a seaside village with its completely enjoyable melody and notable seagull sounds.

This song is a slow theme to one of the games locations. Its extremely peaceful, and just like the previous song, it features bird sounds that help to build the games environments and atmosphere.

In The Earthen Womb
This track has a very otherworldly feel to it with its echoing rhythm track and airy melody.

Clash Of Light And Shadow
This song is very different to all the previous songs and is most definitely considered one of the games most notable action pieces. The songs heavy introduction hits you quite unexpectedly, while the brief mellow moments add for a truly remarkable track.
