    Oblivion has a smooth listening experience that still finds its way into many of my playlists.

    "Legendary" might be pushing it, but the man does good work - good for SOE.

    I don't know, I think I'm in love with it already, and he plans to make it better, perhaps add a more loud tone to it.

    Favorite MMO: Vanilla WoW
    Currently playing: GW2, EVE
    Excited for: Wildstar, maybe?

    Love it! Just a reminder to everyone:

    This is NOT the finished piece.

    Smedley said it was a rough early version and Soule said it was not done.

    lol, Soule almost looked like he didn't want it heard or be in the room.

    Ok - thats great !

    Sounds crap, so generic, nowhere near as good as The Elder Scrolls music. 

    I cannot believe they didn't attempt to keep the EverQuest music in it at all.

    I think he is just a very sensitive artistic individual, I'm sure to him all he heard was the imperfections in the music. It must be a very personal experience for him to write music, and having to show something unfinished was probably really hard.

    I still like the Original EverQuest 2 theme.

    That one just sticks into your mind forever.

    I think Morrowind should be talked about more than Skyrim for the score he did.
  • LorgarnLorgarn SwedenPosts: 371Member Uncommon
    NOOO WAY. Soule has been my favorite composer since Dungeon Siege. Good choice SOE, a damn good choice.
  • ZzadZzad Palma de MallorcaPosts: 1,332Member Uncommon

    Awesome composer!

    Love his work @ Guild Wars 2!

  • GaladournGaladourn AthensPosts: 1,052Member
    the theme is nice, creates the desired effect. I'm expecting Jeremy to expand a bit on it with a counter-theme and add an overture before in a more dynamic style, which in its culmination will lead to this theme.

    This is really great news! at least I know I'll like the music even if I don't know anything about the game yet:)

  • HeikkenHeikken StockholmPosts: 1Member
    Best news in a long time. It's all about them epic tunes!

    They could not have made a better choice, I will be buying the soundtrack if not the game.

    To be honest, I never found his work to really be that amazing, and his work on guild wars 2 was poor compared to other games that have masterful music like FFXI in the same genre.

    Vivasvan, the reveal is later today. Music is very important, btw.
