Jeremy Soule - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 4LP Box
It's geek week once more! Tbh, I never made it through Skyrim. Besides dayjob and parenthood there's simply too many good books to read and funny drinks to drink as if I could invest more than a couple of hours a week into a gigantic game like this. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed those yet countless nights in Fantasyland quite a lot.
One reason for that is certainly the great atmosphere of the game for which the music of Jeremy Soule is also responsible in huge parts. On one hand it's pretty calm Neoclassical Ambient that's perfect for e.g. reading, on the other hand the various styles often manage to bring a very tense feeling into your home, that can easily bring back certain feels of the game. (The few quoir arrangements btw. remind me a lot of Poledouris's timeless Conan The Barbarian OST. Anybody else?) In other words, I really hope to continue with Skyrim someday. Spinning this beautiful soundtrack already gives me nostalgic chills, since the game itself was released in, damn, 2011! Tempus fugit, motherfuckers. 🕛
