Greatest Video Game Music Vol. 2

Thought I'd throw this out there. I couldn't find a good music thread to revamp, but the same people who made the other video game music album performed by the London Philharmonic made a second album and it's only four dollars on Amazon. I picked it up but I haven't listened yet.

Aaaaa, it's a compilation, right? For a moment I just stared at the picture and felt blissful emptiness in my head.

Thank you for pointing me at this. I looked up the first compilation and listened to the first track and wept.

It pleases me to see Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Portal songs listed amongst the tracklist.

No Xenosaga? A pity. There were some tracks on there that were a lot better than the tracks they included. Then again, they want to make money, and what better way than to only include big name / budget titles. Advent Rising is the only title on the list that isn't considered to be a huge franchise.

For shame...

US Amazon: $3.99 USD instant download, blocked in Canada
Canada Amazon: $15.79 CAD, Usually ships within 6 to 9 weeks.

It's like a big pirate-me sign.

That sucks. I know you can listen to the first one for free on Spotify (well, most of it, some of the tracks are blacked out).

I really don't understand the logic behind that pricing structure.

Oh, and one more thing that is missing is any music from Journey.

It is one of the best game soundtracks every written.

Yeah, I don't get it either. Morality aside, I'm speaking purely practically. As a customer, showing me a pricing and delivery disparity like that is probably one of the best ways to not get my money.

Amazon is weird that way sometimes. I think they have similar restrictions on Amazon video games while Steam just doesn't care. Steam gets my money obviously.
