              @xSliverx Awesome, glad you enjoyed.

              @Darkbogdanel Thanks, as of now, there are no current plans to bring Red Dead Redemption to the PC platform. If that should change, we will let you know.

                  man, I can't begin to describe the impact this had on me. It was just about to be sunrise for me, and about halfway into the song, the sun rose while I was on a mountain, and I could see miles of awesomely detailed terrain. the song ended just as I got to the gate of Chuparosa.

                    I can't wait to hear Jose Gonzales play this song live. Not only is Far Away my favorite song on the RDD soundtrack, but it's my favorite song at the moment. It's so bada**

                    ps: the website isn't showing or playing anything yet, does anyone have a direct link? Thanks

                        @9476408 It's a mp3 download. It should say on the limited edition slip card the url and you type the code in and download it. Least thats how it worked for me.

                        This song is one of my favourites on the album.

                            Yeah, I got caught up in the atmosphere with the music and the sunset, next thing you know my horse is killed by coyotes. After the smoke cleared I probably killed 15 coyotes. Funny but totally killed the moment.

                                I remember entering Mexico for the first time, and riding across the desert into the sunset, with this song was playing in the background.

                                It was magical.

                                  This song really does make you think, about anything.

                                    The moment Marston reaches Nuevo Paraiso is one of the best things I have ever seen, the feeling is phenomenal. Hats of to R* & Jose Gonzalez.
