    Hayes and Brower for me. Some of the stuff that Brower did for MoP is really good; some of the best music in the game. Blizzard is blessed with the music and sound team.

    Blizzard's best composer, by far, was Matt Uelmen. Hands down, no contest. None of the others even come close, and even outside Blizzard, he's one of the best in the industry.

    From that list, I'd say Jason Hayes. There are some really special, nostalgic, fitting music on his list.

    Jason Hayes has actually also done some music for Valve.

    My personal favorite is Jason Hayes. So glad he's back at Blizzard.

    Lets see if we get some new pieces for patch 5.3 by Hayes.

    That is a tough one. I'd say a three way tie between Jason Hayes, Russel Brower and David Arkenstone.

    Jason Hayes, hands down. David Arkenstone is also a great artist, really enjoyed his work in WoW Vanilla.

    My favourite:

    Veteran vanilla player - I was 31 back in 2005 when I started playing WoW - Nostalrius raider with a top raid guild.

    I really like Burning Crusade music for some reason - especially combined with an Outland sky backdrop!
