Dead Space has had a decent run of music on trailers past, including Sigur Ross and Smashing Pumpkins. One of the powers that be clearly thinks you can dollop any old balls over fanschy-schmancy visuals and it's somehow poignant and woo. Hence, the Phil Collins thing.
Matt Lees - he of the brilliant Dragon's Dogma vids which sold the game to nigh on all of us - uses this edict to prove a point. And in his song choice, completely accidentally, probably makes a better fist of it. ;)
Still giggling at this. :D :D :D
