    So much for the atmosphere.

    I quite like the music, very fitting for the feeling of the game.

    Bashiok gave excellent reason as to why it is what it is.

    I doubt Matt would let that get to him at all. I think it is clear to anyone with any musical inclination that D3 will suffer a great deal from the lack of Matt's music.

    Bashiok is a dolt without a mind of his own. I made an error in judgment by labeling the sounds "music," I should not have.

    Re: The music is so terrible

    Good thing your opinion is your own, considering everyone I've spoken with re: the beta footage, myself included, enjoys the music so far. It's ambient enough and there's still great homages to the Tristram theme, etc there.

    You come off as incredibly stuck up too - I always enjoy a good debate but not with someone who has such a debbie downer outlook. Matt will be missed, but thus far his successors have done well enough with the templates he laid for Diablo's music. Simple as that. If you can do better, please do show us ;)

    Easy fixed:

    1. Turn music off
    2. Leave Torchlight 2 running on another computer/window.

    Better yet, make up a Mega-Matt-Mix of MP3s with your favorite D,D2,TL and TL2 tracks.

    This is blasphemy.

    There is absolutely zero homage to the Tristram theme besides the one part of the overture that is played in login and character selections screens.

    Bashiok isn't always a mindless PR zombie. He says a few things every now and then that have truth to them.

    The music is pretty nice and fits the world of Diablo perfectly.

    The music is great when combined with the gameplay, believe me.

    I think people need to play the game rather than listening to it by itself. Otherwise it just sounds like Sleep-aid ambient music.

    To me, the music is so awesome for that type of game. It is ambient and fits the atmosphere perfectly even better than what Diablo 2 has. I don`t know what peaople expected hard bass beats, gangsta rap or something?

    Re: The music is so terrible

    Call me crazy but I like the music more compared to Diablo 2.. Don't get me wrong ..Diablo 2 has awesome music... but it lost the ambient feeling what Diablo 1 had. Diablo 3 is basically cross-over these two styles and I really love it.

    Are we even watching the same footage? You can hear a distinct Tristram style theme a few times while characters are in the town.

    Good call. D1 music was so well integrated I would sometimes think I heard monsters in it.

    OT: I call The Caves for my fave piece of ambient Diablo score.

    This.

    There is definitely a Tristram guitar theme in some areas of the beta.

    Funny how people have different tastes when it comes to artistic products like music :)

    Good thing we can all agree that in the realm of aesthetics, everybody has a right to their preferences!

    Re: The music is so terrible

    Wrong! I've said it a couple of times now and i'll say it again:

    (from my comment on incgamer's front page) This is not the only music included in the beta client FFS. I think a lot of people are still under that misguided impression. The more “music like†(less ambient) tracks are in Sound.mpq/Soundbank/Music – the tracks don’t have names but one is clearly the new Tristram theme. That one can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbiuZ_EwLho
