Elder Scrolls Online releases a second soundtrack album

    
13

The Elder Scrolls franchise is well-known for its musical legacy, and while Elder Scrolls Online doesn’t have the efforts of Jeremy Soule (aside from the theme) behind it, Composers Brad Derrick and Rik Schaffer have stepped up to put out some memorable tunes.

If you liked ESO’s soundtrack, then you should be delighted to hear that a second album was released this week called Music of Tamriel Vol. 1. The $10 album contains 14 tracks from the game’s Imperial City and Orsinium DLC packs. Happy listening!

Hahaha! I honestly thought you were joking with me, hence the Slayer joke. Written text just doesn’t carry tone very well. My apologies.
Cheers,

I’m sensing that you’re not a fan — perhaps a little Slayer might be your preferred sort of bedtime music?

ESO does have a particularly nice soundtrack. I consciously notice and appreciate it while playing. I even find myself singing bits of “Red Diamond” absent-mindedly on occasion.

Many games have good, appropriate, or effective soundtracks, but I’m not usually actively aware of them while playing.

Karl_Hungus Wyattearp1989 I agree, it feels the same all over the game.  The other day I walked into Mournhold, just an epic looking city, and the Temple with Almalexia is one of the most beautiful buildings I have seen an MMO and the music felt so non-epic.  Didn’t capture the feel of the city.

lol +1 on phrasing…things like this are both descriptive and fun to read

While I’ve enjoyed the existing ESO soundtrack, it gave you 47 tracks for $10.  This one has 15, for the same price.  I’ll have to listen to it online first and see if it’s worth it (or a cash grab).  Has anyone heard it yet?  Opinions?

That would be my main complaint about the game’s music. More often than not, it’s so similar that it all blends together into one generic and uninspired sonic blob.
