  1. I’m glad this got nominated. Given how excellent the Skyrim music is, I’m surprised it hasn’t had more nominations for the big game awards.

  2. Congratulations are certainly in order here! I’ve always loved the TES Scores.

    Morrowind was epic.
    Oblivion was solid.
    Skyrim is EPIC again.


    A music and Elder Scrolls lover.

  3. Any chance of getting this soundtrack on I-tunes? Or even better, the soundtracks of Skyrim, Oblivion and Morrowind please. Morrowind has one of my favourite OSTs ever.

  4. It would be nice if Directsound would actually ship the soundtrack for us to listen to.

    Or at the very least have better customer support to tell us that they don’t have it available rather than just billing for it, not shipping it, and not answering their customer service.

  5. Congratulations Bethesda and Jeremy Soule. The best Elder Scrolls soundtrack i’ve heard since Daggerfall and Skyrim even comes with music from it. Truly a soundscape which is all things to all people.

  6. I hope he wins, the soundtrack for Skyrim is some of the best music I have ever heard. I’ve been listening to it almost every day, since getting it late last December.

    It’s like he poured all of his emotion into making the Skyrim soundtrack, I really didn’t feel that for Oblivion or Morrowind. Maybe it’s just me, but the music almost describes my childhood memories and nostalgia. Absolute perfection.

  7. The 4CD album is great and definitely worth it. However the issues with importing this to Europe (taxes, handling etc.) are anoying. I wish direct song had a shop also in Europe. Not for me as I have it already, but for others.
    About iTunes… This music does not deserve to be sold in mp3 format.
    However if there was a vinyl LP version… 😉
