Cryptic Whisper is the third track included in the second disc of the Halo 2: Anniversary Original Soundtrack. It is the remastered version of Destroyer's Invocation from Mausoleum Suite in the Halo 2: Original Soundtrack. Its name alludes to the reverse message found in both music pieces.

Hidden message[edit]

When the track is played backwards, a hidden message can be heard.[1] The message alludes to the Ur-Didact's speech from the Halo 4's Epilogue.

We squander eons in the darkness
While they seize our triumphs for their own
The Mantle of Responsibility for all things belongs to Forerunners alone
Think of my acts as you will
Do not doubt the reality
The Reclamation has already begun
We are hopeless to stop it.
