I'll admit it: like many of you, I've been periodically refreshing a page to see if my PlayStation 5 has shipped today (at the time of writing, it hasn't). Apart from starting to retire the phrase "next-gen" from my vocabulary for a while thanks to the Xbox launch, I'm in that antsy waiting phase. One upside to today is that I've been able to listen to the soundtrack for Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which is up on Spotify now.
Thankfully, the soundtrack doesn't fall into the unfortunate trap of having super spoiler-y song titles, so you're good to go there. It is a fair bit shorter than the soundtrack for 2018's Spider-Man, which makes sense considering that this game is smaller, but it does have something that Peter's adventure lacks: a few exclusive tracks written for the game, including two from Lecrae (at the moment, these aren't on Spotify) and one from Jaden Smith.
The rest of the soundtrack's runtime is devoted to the score from John Paesano, who also did the music for Insomnaic's last Spider-Man game as well as for Netflix's Daredevil and The Defenders show. So far, one of my favorite tracks is "Spider-Training," which has some great interplay between horns and strings that I'm assuming will play nicely with a scene where Miles gets pointers on web-slinging from Peter Parker.
Out of curiosity, I also went poking around to see if there are any other PS5 launch title soundtracks up now that folks can put on to make the wait for Thursday pass by a bit quicker. No such luck for Demon's Souls, Godfall, Sackboy, or The Pathless, but hey—you can always just put the theme tune to Bugsnax on loop.
Of course, maybe you're of the mind that listening to the soundtrack will only make you more impatient. If so, maybe go read a book or something? On the other hand, if you're amped to load up on all things Miles before you play, be sure to read USgamer's review to see why Reviews Editor Mike Williams thinks it "proves the first game wasn't a fluke."
