A great deal of the success of Silent Hill comes from the soundtrack of the game. Composed by Akira Yamaoka, the music balances between melodic tunes and stylized noise adding a lot to the atmosphere of the game. Among the highlights is the main theme "Silent Hill" which playing mainly with a mandolin, starts off the soundtrack (and the game) in a powerful and emotional way. Other great tunes are "Tears of...", "Killing Time", "Don't Cry", "Not Tomorrow" "I'll Kill You" and "Otherside". While not the best soundtrack in the series, it has some of the strongest tunes.
