>a game about unique isolated culture
>nomadic tribes, slavery, alien flora and fauna
>soundtrack is the most generic fantasy shit in existence
They told Jeremy Soule to make something normies would love and you know it. Not one person who isn't familiar with morrowind would look at the game and think it sounds like it actually sounds.

The music does fit oblivion, tho, since it is the generic fantasy of the series.

Prolly soundtrack for Witcher 3, as it takes slavic folk songs. I knew once how to sing the battle theme from the swamps in Velen.

I don't think the soundtrack is generic. Jeremy Soule has a unique style that is easily identifiable to me.

>They told Jeremy Soule to make something normies would love and you know it
They didn't told anything to Jeremy Soule, he had already composed a fantasy game soundtrack and Bethesda was just the first to buy it, that's it.
Well, that's just a theory of mine to be honest, but it doesn't take to be a genius to realise this. If you look at the names of Morrowind's tracks, you will notice that each has 3 fucking names. One of them being completely generic and unrelated to Morrowind in any way, this is probably the original name that was then adapted into the game (and by adapted I mean renamed).
Contrary to what other retards ITT, I completely agree, Morrowinds music is generic and does not fit morrowind more than it would fit any other Tamriel province, if you don't believe me, play the "Skyrim: home of the nords" mod.

I like how Shattered Lands had music themed for each area.

Go for the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles OST.
For a mediocre game the music is fantastic, and because of their instrumentation choices (lots of medieval instruments) it helps establish the game’s world and tone incredibly.
>>
>>2927861
My point is that it is nice fantasy RPG music.
>>
>>2927854
I remember hearing somewhere they actually didn't tell Soule anything about the game except what it will be fantasy game. I dream of alternate reality where we actually got kino dunmery throat singing as battle music.
>>
>>2927660
Bethesda games have the worst music. I don't care if it's Jeremy Soule or Inon Zur they both sound like the same thing and that "thing" is shit.

So if someone made a hip hop song in a fantasy game, would that be fantasy music?

lol. If I listen to some dude rapping, I know it is hip hop. No need for context. You shouldn't need context to tell the genre of music.

It fucking doesn't and you know it. If it fitted the game they wouldn't have reused the same songs in every TES afterwards, depsite the games being stylistically and culturally different.

They kept using it because it's kino and full of Soule.

Ptobably in PatricianTV morrowind review, yeah, that guy is well informed.
Again, i'll repeat for thode who don't know yet. Morrowind soundtrack was composee without a concrete setting in mind, it was only generic fantasy music (although very good)
>>
>>2927838
And that's not common
>>
>>2927660
I actually agree. The OST is good but dunmer culture had lots of asiatic influences and it's a shame they didn't lean into that at all.

It's way more star wars-y than generic fantasy.
Look at Daggerfall for generic fantasy music (still very good).
>>
>>2927840
>Jeremy Soule has a unique style that is easily identifiable to me.
This. It actually annoys me because I can instantly recognize him in Dawn of War and Kotor, which takes me out of the game.
>>
>>2927692
That's just generic Middle Eastern/North African street music. Morrowind already has enough Islamic and Gypsy elements that adding any extra would've made the game feel less alien.
Also 9/11.

>peak musical taste VS. some zoomer in the thread shilling for gayshin geypact
>>
>>2929364
There is a reason classical composers and performers praise Genshin OST and nobody cares about Planescape: Torment's or Dragon Age's music.
>>
>>2929437
Nobody, and i mean NOBODY has ever praised gayshin geypact other than people that are paid to do it and stupid zoomers that don't know better.
>>
>>2929438
You can keep deluding yourself farther, but your dislike for Genshin Impact's music stems solely from your childish and unpolished taste and understanding. There are no games out there with melodies more complex and well thought out than Genshin ones.

Jeremy Soule isn't bad but he's very overrated, not Hans Zimmer tier though.

He's not overrated, he's just too good. Cope and seethe (((Inon Zur))).
>>
>>2930106
Nah, his tracks rarely hit that perfect spot for the game, compare Dawn of War 1's soundtrack to Dawn of War 2's, the second composer was better for the seeting.

what an embarrassing post, holy shit lmao
>>
>>2927854
He probably got a few pointers what Morrowind was about and its setting then he composed the entire soundtrack in a few days.
The drums in Nerevar Rising emulating a heartbeat being a prime example.
>>
>>2930376
>It's called juxtaposition retard.
Learn what juxtaposition actually is before you try to educate someone else. Morrowind having ethnic music AND classical compositions play in different contexts would've been juxtaposition, Morrowind just having "fantasy song №212" for it's entire playlist is lack of artistic direction.

>>2929609
>Is the anti Jeremy Soule psy op starting this early? You guys are barely marketing tes vi rn
As expected of Morrowind fags, you completely miss the point and shit your pants. Nobody says Jeremy Soule is a bad composer, the argument is that the music doesn't fit with the game.
And the reason for it, as always, is corporate money grab. Avatar had the same shit - actual soundtrack with alien instruments was made, ethnic singers from all over the world were involved, and upper managers just said it was too weird and put fucking brass blasting so normies would eat it up.
Same shit happened to Morrowind, although it's caused by lack of budget and time instead. Play actual games.
>>
>>2931698
At least pick something like Amazon tribes if you're trying to make a point for music that would fit giant dildo trees you dumb coon.
>>
>>2931698
Most of the OST is about the player and his journey, not about the world. The main theme's title is proof of that even with its previous title "Call of Magic". That's why I like it so much, the whole piece is very empathetic to the player; the wonder and naivety as exemplified by the tracks "Caprice" and "Shed Your Travails". It's really interesting that the only songs that are about the world are the combat ones like "Drumbeat of The Dunmer".
