I’m just rolling in MMO soundtracks lately, and today was a pretty big day for me in regards to them. First of all, I realized that the Mists of Pandaria score was out on iTunes, so I snagged that and am looking forward to listening to another stellar WoW score.
But then Turbine went and released Chance Thomas’ Riders of Rohan soundtrack as well — a whopping 23 tracks of Middle-earth awesomeness. I’ve listened to about 10 of these so far, and I can say that it’s by far the best music done in LOTRO to date. It’s really stirring, emotive stuff. I’ll be reviewing it for next week’s Jukebox Heroes (today I did The Secret World, if you missed it).
I also updated the MMO music page on Bio Break to reflect these scores and links to them. As always, if you find outlets that are selling or giving away (legally) MMO soundtracks, let me know!
