I'm one of the few who's never been a fan of Jeremy Soule.

I first got frustrated with his music during Icewind Dale.

I think his music is of very high quality in producdtion, but I think he's an extremely Drab and Boring composer.  His music is generally always dull and mundane. Forgettable.

And... he's monopolozing the gaming industry these days.  So its pretty difficult, ny impossible to get away from him.

I still think that Age of Conan reigns supreme on soundtrack for an MMORPG.

i would hardly call his work  dull or mundane.

I think the issue some people have with it that makes them call it dull and forgettable is that a lot of his music in games is designed to add atmosphere and mood without actually distracting you from the game itself.  Which means you don't necessarily even notice the music unless you intentionally try to pay attention to it.  

That is, however, the whole point of a sound track (in both movies and games), so it means he's doing a good job.   Some people want to really notice the music, however, so they might call it dull and forgettable because of that.   Just my theory on it.

no thats  basic game  music theory.  to be noticed only slightly and not  umpead  gmeplay or outdo the rest of the  sound effects. you dont want to confuse the player's sense of hearing when playing impeading their ability to play effectively.  even so  these scores show a range of emotion and tempo.  the music can show how the state of affairs in places and  races. hell it can tell a story and most of these do!

Umm, Cloud, that's exactly what I said (or at least what I meant to say), why did you open your reply with "no" if you agreed with me. lol

This music gives epic vibes... So i have to disagree with OP. Some people do feel that its not appealing (and its okay for them - you wont sit a lot on login screen, this isnt WoW with each weekend maintenance). But i feel its absoultely awesome - it can for sure rival WoW's epic vanilla login music.

I can understand not liking it, the complete subjectivity of musical tastes in mind, but... jumbled?

Music, like art, is so subjective. To some the Guild Wars soundtrack is forgetable, to others such as myself it is one of the best game soundtracks out there.

Different strokes for different folks. I mean I cannot stand the Final Fantasy soundtracks but a lot of people like them, to each their own.

The music in something like Star Wars matched the huge paradigm shift that the movie cultivated. The composer had enormous inspiration and talent. Not to mention that it is connected to some of the most famous and widely known movies of all time (I'm sure that didn't make it un-forgettable?...).

 

You honestly should not expect an epic movie score in a game. Different audience, different tastes, different composers and different resources available to them.

I know everybody loves this guy (Jeremy Soule) but his music is just so...formulaic. I guess I just don't find his music very interesting. It does what its supposed to do i guess. I tried to bandwagon his music when people were hyping him up a year or so ago around here. After going through tons of his work on youtube, I came to the conclusion that his style doesn't speak to me like it does others.

OP you are really, but seriously really the first person on earth i saw that didnt like that piece by Jeremy Soule. Music in GW2 is like a whole different aspect that wins the game.

Ahh yes, "Hypers." The people who praise and hate every MMORPG... We've dismissed that claim.

I'm not much of a conformist. I do love my game music. But Jeremy Soule just doesn't quite sell it. It feels text book run of the mill. Perhaps it is because I've heard better music and am spoiled? Therefore my ears crave for some thing more satisfying.

Different taste, different music, personally i am a huge fan of Jeremey soul, the OP obviously not. And even that they took in consideration with Anet, as they allow everyone to play his own music ingame.

 

Which is good as even the best music gets stale after 3 years of continous playing.

Exactly.

I really liked the music in the game, but I will change that music after listening to it for a while, it's so easy in GW2

Or maybe people just have different tastes? That would be a bit more respectful towards those who like Jeremy Soule.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

OP, please edit your title to 'Guild Wars 2 music not appealing TO ME' ? 

 

It would save a lot of pointless white noise and clarify where you are coming from, and that you are not making a blanket claim about what is appealing to other people or not (which would be a blatantly stupid thing to do) and that you're not trying to act superior to others because you don't like something they do (which, again, would be a stupid thing to do).

 

Personally, I love the score to this game.

I like Jeremy Soule's work a lot. His style is dreamy and nostalgic and it creates a good atmosphere in many games.

Huge fan of Jeremy Soule and like GW2 music a lot so far.

He has been called the John Williams of Video Games and with reason. See? his music is not meant to be centerpiece, BUT to subtly upgrade your experience.

In Skyrim, for example, the music changes depending what you are doing. You have quiet, subtle pieces when navigating nature and the beautiful environment because THEY are the centerpiece. Then you meet a dragon and the epic fighting music starts to add Adrenaline to you and spice to the fight... but again, the DRAGON is the centerpiece, the music enhance that.

It shows something quite unique.... that Soule is aware of what the game is doing when the music plays.. it is not just music composed as is... but it is meant to be listened at certain parts of the game. Like John Williams music. Now in movies this has become more common, but in games... much less so.

Yes, you have fighting games with hard rock or metal pieces for combat music... but they have usually no unity with the action, beside they are fast and furious pieces.

This is just completely epic:

"I am Norn, Hunter of the Wild!". Brrr!

This said, I remember the first time I entered Stormwind with a newbie human... you pass the huge gates, walk between the huge statues, and you have that music:

Really ? :)

He must have felt awkward when he was told "Ok Jeremy, I want something epic. Something really, really epic, and keep in mind the game will have pandas. Yes pandas dude, don't fucking look at me like that I told you it's not my decision !"

Well yes - musical taste is very subjective and the OP has a valid opinion which actually doesn't need any further evidenciary backup.

With music - you either like it or you don't.

I would give the music a strong 7/10 - because I do love a good deal of it, but some is distinctly lacklustre.
