The tunes range from dreamlike beats about exploring the strange worlds of the Overlap such as RAKEL’s song, to melancholy lamentations like in Wide Awake by Jaimes. They shift perspectives between characters, and you can feel their moods in these bespoke lyrics, while other songs take a dramatic shift into more intense directions.

Dark, Twisted and Cruel might evoke images of interference with reality and Alan’s gift being twisted in horrific directions. Night Springs is the most surprising tonal shift, but its energy is still totally appropriate with lyrics that tie into the plot nicely, especially as a callback to an iconic in-game TV show from the original Alan Wake. Each song is not only catchy in its own right, and while the genres can shift somewhat between each artist, the dream pop elements among several are where things click.
