Music thread
« on: April 21, 2013, 04:34:00 PM »
Well, we have a TV and Book thread, so it felt shameful not to talk about the media that is music.  I am a big fan of many genres including rap, rock, country, and I really like 90s music.  Right now, I am listening to Drake and Nate Ruess (FUN.)

I've always been into pretty much every genre of music.  Never could actually choose a favorite, but I guess my top would be rock and my bottom would be country!  I grew up with country because I'm from the South and that's all my parents would listen to ahah but I was never a huge fan!  I also love anything different and odd!

I only ever listened to one of their songs.

First time I really listened to Daft Punk was after Tron Legacy.  It's great though x]

Me? No but I don't let cultural/regional boundaries impede the voracious appetite for music I have. When you don't speak the language, the words just become another instrument to the ear. At least that's my feelings on the matter.

  I really like the way you stated that!  Couldn't have said it better myself!

Really? I've known about them for at least a few years. 2007 at the earliest.

Why thank you!

I used to work as a radio DJ in college, really gave me the ability to grab music from all over.

I really enjoy more calm, relaxing music, and a lot of game soundtracks offer that sort of thing, especially really well-orchestrated games (I feel like video games are one of the rare places where you hear that sort of thing anymore).

I could make a list of soundtracks a mile long, but I'll just mention some of my favorites in no particular order:

- TES3: Morrowind
- Dustforce
- Hotline Miami
- El Shaddai
- Sword x Sworcery (Jim Guthrie is the man!)
- Journey
- Malicious (I highly recommend this game, it's a bit meh on the gameplay execution, but it looks super slick, the music is fantastic and the concepts behind it are really pretty cool and I wish they had been executed a bit better. The story is pretty interesting too, though it's told mostly through a text dump on the main menu screen)
- Nier (Fantastic soundtrack, absolutely fantastic, you owe it to yourself to give this one a listen)

That's not even the half of em, but yeah, I really, really love a good game soundtrack. Delver's Drop is probably going to be added to the long list very soon, and it'll probably stand pretty high up on that list for a good while if the rest of the soundtrack is as good as what we've heard so far :)

I don't just listen to game soundtracks to be clear, I just tend to listen to only a few songs from each artist so it's hard to say exactly who or what I like. I like a lot of Jon Brion's movie soundtracks, a couple of songs from a guy named Helios, Gotye, (Somebody That I Used to Know is okay, but honestly it's my least favorite of his stuff, State of the Art is probably my favorite) lots of different stuff. The music I typically don't like is really don't like is anything too fast or intense or aggressive, so Heavy Metal and Rap don't gel with me too well. That's not an absolute thing, I've heard Metal and Rap that I thought was pretty alright, but it's a very rare occasion (General Tor's theme from Iji is probably the closest thing to Metal that I really enjoyed).

- Hotline Miami

This game has the weirdest soundtrack I've ever heard. It's addicting, creepy, relaxing and rises the blood pressure.

Game music has to be great for me to really get into it. Bastion, most Elder Scrolls games, Dragon Age and Dragon Age 2...The Suikoden series is AMAZING. I'm looking forward to getting to hear the soundtrack for Delvers Drop as well.
