Batman: Arkham City – The Album, by Various Artists


Track 7 only

Released October 4, 2011

4 min, 1 sec

“The Years” would be perfectly at home on †††’s (pronounced “Crosses”) only studio album.

It’s dark, it’s brooding, it’s got some great, heartfelt vocals and murmurs from Chino Moreno, and it’s got a sick guitar solo to wrap it all up.

That’s…that’s it. This is a bonus ††† track on a soundtrack album for Batman: Arkham City, which I haven’t played, but is widely regarded as one of the greatest video games of all time, and certainly the best Batman game. I don’t know why this song’s on the soundtrack. It fits, thematically, I guess – it’s all about observation as years and years pass, and it’s dark and brooding like Mr. Vigilante No-Parents.

I’ll talk more about ††† when I get to their album, which is unfortunately at the very bottom of the list, because of how it’s typeset. See you in, like, 2016 for that one, then.
