Then rejoice! The opening track on this CD sounds like an 80's big hair band. "The Wheel of TIIIIIME!!!!" Man, this is not what I'd listen to while reading the books. I was expecting some sort of classical music, maybe some chorals, a work in the vein of Basil Poledouris and his fabulous Conan the Barbarian soundtrack. This first track alone made me nearly want to break the cd in half and use the edges of it to harm myself in some way.
Do yourself a favor and check out soundtracks from fantasy films. Anything by Basil Poledouris, the soundtrack from Last of the Mohicans, Dances With Wolves... those are albums that will put you more in mind of the series.

This CD wasn't terrible, just isn't the normal thing I'd listen to, and certainly not a good musical representation of the Wheel of Time novels. The inclusion of vocals was in and of itself, a flawed idea. Not only that, but there are too many cultures represented both subtly and overtly in the novels (renaissance era culture, pre-Norman, crusades-era christianity, Taoism, gypsy and gaelic, among others) that you couldn't possibly pin it down to one influence in the music. In other words, it seems like a mistake to put such emphasis on gaelic influence in the music, when in order to give a good representation of the books, you'd have to include so many other cultures as well. To be honest, if you want a soundtrack to go with the novels, I'd go for the soundtrack to the computer game. It's on the game CD as an hour or so of mp3's.

This has to be some of the worst music I have ever heard. "Singing" the words "wheel of time" over and over again is hardly what it takes to call a song a theme of something. This soundtrack not only does not suit the books at all, but is not worth listening to for any reason. There is no musical value to be found here, don't waste your time with this one.

I am a big fan of the book series so I decided to give this CD a go. I am a fan of celtic music so I find the "soundtrack" to fit my tastes nicely. Personally though I prefered the instrumentals over the vocal songs, with the exception of Dahl.
One thing to note, if own the Wheel of Time PC game most of this music will sound familiar. Robert Berry wrote the soundtrack to the game and positive responce to it spurred on the release of the official Wheel of Time soundtrack. All the songs from the game are here as well as many new ones.
All and all a good buy for fans of the book or people intrested in neo-celtic music.

This abomination is left over from the War Of Power created in the pit of Shayol Ghul to deafen the Dragon reborn and torment us all ....
I would rather kiss a trollic or run my self through with a Myrddraal's shadow blade than ever have to listen to this again.
My the light save us from this horid thing.

This music does not go with the books at all. First of all the names of the songs should be a clue. Unlike the Wheel of Time, the producer/producers of this music didn't really put much thought into making this. Listening to the music does not conjure up images of any part of the story. If i had to decide to read the books based on what the music is like, I wouldn't even look at the covers.

A Robert Berry solo project. For those unfamiliar with Berry, he was the keyboard player who briefly worked in the "3" project (with the guys from ELP). More recently, he's become a major producer for Magna Carta and is responsible for a lot of their tribute albums, as well as the past 4-5 releases by Celtic rock band Tempest. Obviously, the bug to write and perform his own music has struck Berry-- and this album is the result of that.
This CD calls itself a 'soundtrack' for Robert Jordan's (still-unfinished) "Wheel of Time" series. I'm not sure that's really the right word though. Although all the songs are derived from the book, it's not the case that each one corresponds to a specific moment, or event, in the book-- as if the album were meant to be a kind of musical accompaniment for those passages. Nor does it attempt to retell the story as a whole. I think it'd be more appropriate to say that this is a *concept* album with songs that all happen to be based (quite strongly) on Jordan's ongoing tale. That means that this CD really can stand on its own merits-- apart from the books. Certainly, those who have read the series will have a better understanding of the intended meanings of the songs (i.e. they'll know *who* the song "The Ladies of the Tower" refers to, and what that means in the context of Jordan's story). Still, familiarity with Jordan's fiction is not a prerequisite for enjoying this music-- it really does stand successfully on its own.
As for the overall sound, there's no great surprise here. Berry's background as a performer and producer of progressive rock,progressive metal, and Celtic rock, has strongly shaped the music on this album.

I bought the CD thinking it would actually fit the books...much to my surprise, it really didn't. I will admit that Robert Berry does a nice job, but it just doesn't sound like something that would play as Rand and Friends do the stuff that they do throughout the books.
