Soule is good, he's one of my favorite composers, but I think his work tends to be a bit repetitive these days - it sort of falls into the same pattern over and over again. I think he should actually reduce his workload and focus on originality over quantity.

Was great when he made the Morrowind soundtrack...

 

Is now so bad I question thine sanity good sir! (Internet glove slap) :devil:

 

But no, there was poll about this earlier, very few votes and I'm happy to agree with such a poll. No Soule, please.

like his work, but I'm getting a good vibe from Justin Bell, most of what he's said gives me confidence that he is the right guy for the job.

Pretty sure it's Justin Bell. He's done a bunch of good work already and I trust him. He reads the forums and has definitely been responding to posters. I think that he'll do a fine job.

Agreed... Bell is pretty damn talented.

"Epic" wouldn't describe Soule's work at all. Soule aims more for relaxing tunes. To relax and relieve stress from a long period of time playing the game.

Morrowind is still probably the best soundtrack I have ever heard, but after that Soule has not made anything particularly memorable or new. TES series basically repeats same themes from Morrowind with more epic arrangements and in other fantasy games he still uses same formula as can be heard in Guild Wars 2's 'Fear Not This Night'. You can almost hum Morrowind theme over it.

 

He's great composer and there is nothing wrong in having distinctive characteristics in your music, but he has composed for so many fantasy games already it would be nice to see something new. And I'm already hoping for more folk music oriented soundtrack like in The Witcher. We have seen enough epicnes already.

Many games fail on doing too bombastic themes. Baldurs gate is actually a good example. the epic music in the background while I was rolling a character. The music was telling me "You are locked in an EPIC struggle of the ages!" while the screen was telling me numbers and stats. I liked the work Soule did for guild-wars, particularly eye of the storm.

There's a thing in anime where sometimes a work gets associated with another work, by way of the animation, thus the artist behind the animation, alone, without being allowed to stand on its own two feet. I think, sound wise, and in other aspects as well, Eternity can benefit most from finding its own identity, creating its own feel and mood. I think that's more important than attaching a known name to the musical portions of the project. I don't dislike Jeremy Soule, mind you, I just think a lesser known, but still very talented, name might benefit the project more.

GOD NO

 

Like every artist they reach a peak at one point in their lives. After that it's downhill.

Mr. Soule, while undoubtedly at a high peak once, is racing downhill so fast he must be experiencing the Doppler effect.

Soule's rendition of Nobuo Uematsu's Terra from Final Fantasy III (or VI, I guess it's called now) is just... sublime.

Haven't heard anything by Bell, AFAIK, but I'm sure he's good too. Was kind of hoping for Michael Hoenig, though.

He has done some great music (Icewind Dale, Morrowind, Guild Wars (and especially Eye of the North expansion), but his work is a bit repetitive now.

I'd rather Mark Griskey than Soule, myself.


This particularly rapid, unintelligible patter isn't generally heard, and if it is, it doesn't matter.

Peronally i would like Inon Zur in IWD II he could catch what was going on on the map with the music, it was super in tune.

I don't need to have Jeremy Soule in all my games. I'm quite happy with their in-house guy, that did the kickstarted music. He seems to have a ton of good ideas.

 

Here's his work:

And the music update:

These Soule fans are starting to annoy me. And I am one.

Only reason I'd hire Soule is because his last name is Soule and it fits the game :p

Not all of it, TA and SupCom (FA) were pretty epic and grand sounding.

I liked a lot of David John's work from Neverwinter Nights. Sometimes I just play his Infinite Dungeons and Kingmaker themes just because they're awesome.

 

But whoever does it, I'm sure it will be good. Seems like the samples up so far are nice.
