LOTRO releases 10th anniversary soundtrack

    
9
A week after announcing Composer Chance Thomas’ return to score the upcoming Mordor expansion, Lord of the Rings Online revealed another musical treat. The game, in collaboration with Thomas, has released a 10th Anniversary album for fans. The 26-track, two-disc album is being made available through Huge Sound Records and retails for $15 (although individual tracks can be purchased as well).

“This music transformed my career and gave me a platform so that I could take all of these places that we love in Middle-earth and bring them to life musically,” Thomas said. “I hope this collection of music will carry you away on the wings of your imagination. So here’s to all of the great memories… and the memories yet to come.”

You can hear the announcement and listen to an interview with Chance Thomas after the break!

An update just to say that the soundtrack is available in FLAC (lossless) from 7digital.com.
For the same price (at least in my country).

Sadly, if you already own the original music collection from Shadow of Angmar, the Mines of Moria soundtrack, as well as the Riders of Rohan score, then there are only about three or four new tracks on this release.

Naturally Chance Thomas wants to market his material separately from the other composers involved with LOTRO. However, from a fans perspective, I would like access to ALL material from the game. But that’s not going to happen.

The music of Lord of The Rings Online by Chance Thomas is one of the main reasons why I’ve been loving and playing this game since its release.

However, I would have loved if it had been available in FLAC format instead of 320kbps MP3, just like Riders of Rohan.

Congratulations, a great respected game has joined the other Elder Statesmen such as the Everquests, WoW, Runescape, Lineage 1 and 2 (would it be right to include the Guild Wars franchise as a whole that would be like including the Elder Scrolls which is why this is in parenthesis).

While there are many other excellent games that have surpassed 10 years very few have done so while still continuing their narrative with healthy loyal communities (it’s a damn shame the launcher won’t work on my 4G/LTE connection).

I bought a new set of headphones last night and was using these tracks to test them out. Started tearing up in my living room listening to “Legacy”. :P
