The Elder Scrolls soundtracks have a legendary reputation in the video game community, but when you take Jeremy Soule (mostly) out of the mix, can the MMO score stand up to this legacy?  The Battle Bards investigate in an exploration of this massive OST of one of the new MMOs of 2014.

Very surprised how much you guys seem to dislike this score. Whereas lively soundtracks like WildStar are a lot of fun, I most appreciate ones like Warhammer Online, ESO (love Brad Derrick), SWTOR etc, which pick a particular tone/style and truly work on making it cohesive and consistent. That's good world-building.
By the way, if you guys haven't seen this video of Brad Derrick composing for Warhammer Online, it's a must-watch.
