Battle Bards Episode 139: Return to LOTRO

    
3

It has been a good long while since the Battle Bards walked the road that led them from the Shire to Mordor, but now they’re back in Lord of the Rings Online — and they have a lot of positive things to say about this beloved soundtrack. If the word “quaint” can ever be used as a recommendation for a score, it has to be done so here! Tune in as these three Minstrels share a few favorite tracks you may not have heard before.

Battle Bards is a biweekly podcast that alternates between examining a single MMO’s soundtrack and exploring music tracks revolving around a theme. MOP’s Justin co-hosts with bloggers Steff and Syl. The cast is available on iTunesGoogle PlayTuneInPocket CastsStitcher, and Player.FM.

Man, this game has such a great soundtrack. I’m glad some of it has been released to iTunes so Chance can get an extra payday for it.

The only mmorpg that I frequently will turn the music back on for a while. It just moves me in a way other mmorpg music doesn’t.
