    Music of Patch 5.1 - Return of the Legend Composer

    So the long time Blizzard composer who made almost all Warcraft 3 and Original WoW tracks is now again working at Blizzard. He's made some new music for 5.1 patch. Some of my friends said that they spend time in Lion's landing questing longer than usual just to hear the music. What do you people think is music like this essential for good wow experience?

    The Alliance battle march is just amazing.

    Holy fuck this music is amazing, I'm sure we're going partially rose-tinted-over-hype mode but really listening to Jaina Homeland right now and it's just soul crushingly beautiful.

    Please god more tracks like this, it'll make me turn WoW sound back on.

    Too bad Jaina Homeland only plays in the two moments you go to Dalaran in the questline...

    Let's hope it's in Dalaran when it appears..... somewhere

    REALLLLLLY good imo, darkmoon faire one especially really stands out from the other darkmoon faire music.

    Good to have him back tbh, look forward to hearing more horde music, the battle against garrosh is going to be truly legendary with this standard of music.

    ---------- Post added 2013-01-23 at 06:40 PM ----------

    Indeed. People propably like his compositions if they like Warcraft 3 and Original WoW music, as those are largely made by Jason, especially the Wc3 music.

    MoP as a whole has had beautiful music. I truly wish MoP could win some sort of award for it's soundtrack.

    If you dislike where WoW is headed in your mind, quit. Really. Sitting around complaining about "promises" that may or may not have been made isn't doing anything to help your cause. It's just making you look more and more like the constantly complaining and perpetually offended.

    What he said. While MoP might have a lot of dailies, a very strong plus for the game is the music.

    I must have listened to the 5.1 music countless times. Hope 5.2 will bring new music too, and as awesome as Landfall's was.

    I can't wait to hear the new version of the old BElf music for the Sunreaver zones.

    I've been listening to Jaina's Homeland like a lot lately...and then humming it when I'm not listening to it 0.o.

    It's great to see Glen Stafford is still making music for Wow, he's responsible for alot of the music from Warcraft 2 & 3.

    I'm not really nostalgic person but those old tracks really woke some memories. My all-time favourite is old Tanaris music ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eemwik5vzBY ) and when listening to it, i feel like i'm playing again at midnight, headphones on and grinding those wastewander bandits.

    No words can describe how awesome I find Tracy W. Bush's works in WC3.

    And yet. And yet nowadays, at some point, I went to play with music off due to raiding.
