There is nothing more boring than WoW’s music, sadly everyone has copied that style and now everything sounds the same. It’s like Hans Zimmer, everything sounds the same now….. I miss the mysterious intrigue of EQ2’s music back in beta 2004. In fact I miss fantasy art in general of the pre WoW era, you look at the original concept art of EQ and that is what fantasy used to be like…. then look at EQ Next’s to see how it all looks like WoW today.
