5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest musical works of all time January 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is an unbelievable work from one of the greatest game composers of all time, Jeremy Soule. From Morrowind to Oblivion and now Skyrim, there is a tremendous maturity of Jeremy's skills and talent. As we progress through the Elder Scrolls series of orchestral sounds we see Jeremy sequentially out-doing himself. Just when the adventurous melody of Morrowind beckons you forward and crystallizes the extant visual atmosphere, the proud and epic music of Oblivion manages to just out-do its predecessor. In the same vein, Skyrim yet outshines Oblivion with its deep, ethereal, haunting and absolutely beautiful score.

It is difficult to properly quantify Jeremy's masterful work in this piece. His style has changed and is more subtle than Morrowind or Oblivion, yet it somehow manages to be even stronger, more engaging and more epic. Listening to the music, one cannot help but be deeply moved by what sounds like the echoes of an epic journey into the North. High peaks of ice, dazzling arrays of snowey lattice and silk currents of frost flowing off magnificent white mountains are images conjured up by the adventure themed tracks in this work. Even before laying eyes on the beautiful visual scenes, tracks like `Awake' and `Frostfall' have already imprinted this epic winter journey into the players mind.

The work transitions into majestic nobility with tracks such as the `Imperial throne' and accents the already beautiful hand-made cities with tracks such as `The streets of Whiterun' and `The City Gates'. Even within the walls of a large settlement the player cannot help but feel the charm and beauty of civilization ensconced in this awe-inspiring Northern Province.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece! January 10, 2012
By Freth
Format:Audio CD
I echo what Wanderer said so eloquently. In a way, you get so much more out of this soundtrack if you've played the previous games, because parts of the Skyrim soundtrack are like an old friend coming back to you (pieces from Morrowind). Having waited for 5 years for a new installment of The Elder Scrolls series, when you first listen to the beauty and triumph of this soundtrack it brings you to tears, like an old friend returning home, except it's a grand celebration of the past, present and future. It's all of these things rolled into one. Make no mistake, this IS a masterpiece, enhanced by experiencing it how it was meant to be experienced, by playing Skyrim. I now have close to 300 hours in Skyrim, I've seen just about everything there is to see, done just about everything there is to do, but the haunting and beautiful soundtrack Jeremy created always draws me back, like home, like an old friend. What else can I say? If you're passionate about the series, loved the previous music, this will blow you away. This soundtrack is so popular there are countless videos on YouTube of people covering the songs, even the bard songs from within the game. Add it to your collection, you can't go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack...Grossly Overpriced October 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic soundtrack, particularly the title track. If you loved Skyrim, then you will love this soundtrack.

By the way....why anyone would pay the ridiculous asking price here on Amazon when you can purchase this for $30 at directsong is beyond me. For the amount of money these Amazon Market place sellers are requesting, the purchase of this soundtrack should include your own personal set of armor and your own dragon.

5.0 out of 5 stars High price August 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The CD's are great, sorted between the main music, to ambient music as you'd travel through skyrim. The only reason it is probably selling for so high on here is that it takes over 2 months to be shipped through direct song. They must hunt and kill a dvd, shave it into a bunch of cd's, roast them in a smoker for a month, then ship them by rowboat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing the Bards' Songs December 14, 2012
By Raziel
Format:Audio CD
I purchased my set from DirectSong. It did take about 6 weeks to arrive, as others have mentioned, but there was no damage. I did email them at one point to ask where the CDs were, because they were taking much longer than the site claimed they would to ship, and I did not get a reply. So I wouldn't say their customer service is that great, but they do (eventually) deliver.

Now, about the CDs. Of course, if you've played the games, then you know the music is great. But one thing I don't see that anyone else has mentioned is the fact that the bards' songs are NOT on the soundtrack. That was a disappointment to me. I don't think many of the bards have great singing voices or anything, but one of my favorite features of the game were the songs the bards would sing that are relevant to the scenes playing out in-game, like the folk songs about the war, about the dragons, about Alduin's defeat once you complete the main questline, etc. Those are not included in the soundtrack; it's all instrumental except for the male choir that sings the theme. Just a heads up. Other than that, the set is great.

I've been trying to find the soundtrack for this game since it came out...and I've been completely unsuccessful. This is the only physical copy I've seen or heard about in all of my digging. I've no idea at all why something like this soundtrack has been so astoundingly scarce, what with the popularity of the game.

Does Bethesda do this on purpose?

That said, the price on this item is highway robbery.

Was this ever (or will it be) available on Amazon?
Doesn't look like it will ever be made available through Amazon MP3, but there is now the option of iTunes. They just recently made the soundtracks for Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim available there.
