You don't really notice music in video games and that's the way it should be. But that doesn't mean that, when pulled from the game and left to stand on its own, the music isn't fantastic. Such is the case with You, Me & Gravity: The Music of Planet Coaster, the latest effort from Jim Guthrie and JJ Ipsen, respectively from Guelph and Woodstock, Ont.

Composed for the upcoming video game, Planet Coaster, the music is vibrant, bouyant and at times introspective and emotional. We're a long way from the 8-bit bloops from your sister's Super Mario Bros game on Atari. "Aspect Imaginarium" opens with a descending horn arrangement reminicent of the Dap Kings before it segues into some crafty guitar picking. The Bon Iver-ian harmonies of "Sink Cat" lead to a soaring string arrangement before coming to a delightfully delicate end.

Guthrie, a member of the bands Islands, Royal City and Human Highway, is no stranger to the world of soundtracks, having composed the music for the game Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery and Below.

You, Me & Gravity: The Music of Planet Coaster will be in stores on Nov. 17. You can pre-order the soundtrack is to pre-order the Thrillseeker Edition of the Planet Coaster game here
