    Does Chance know anything about coding? Because if so, it would be nice to put him to work on fixing the all the crashes to desktop, stuttering, etc. after he finishes his songs.

    Super exciting news ! I love his work and it fits Lotro so well.
    Can't wait to see what he comes up with for gloomy and scary Mordor.

    PS. My personal favorite from him : Lament for Oakenshield.

    AMAZING news! I can't say how much I love Chance's music for LOTRO.

    Great news \o/ He did some of the most remarkable musics of the game as we could see from the countdown \o/
    Other composers also did a great job (Black Gate, and Pelennor were epic also and so on), but super excited to hear of Chance Return! o7
    Yup yup hurrah!

    This is outstanding news! I am thrilled we will be able to experience the glory of Chance's music again. Good on you SSG.

    Is Chance available to replace all the other music that's not his?

    Especially the Mirkwood / Isengard era music *shudder*

    Gondor music is actually quite nice imo.

    Great news and Chance is clearly very passionate, without doubt the right man for the job. Not sure why but I always had in my mind that game music was sort of just thrown together, by a team that didn't really understand the theme of the game, and were just working on briefs like "we need some frantic combat music" etc... I'm sure in some games it probably is, but listening to Chance it's great to see how into it he is, really taking care to make sure what he produces is right for the mood and circumstance, specific to Lotro and JRR's work.

    Very informative interview. This is exactly the kind of blog / interview video I wish Lotro released more of, especially during development of new content.

    Fascinating!

    This triggered me... Gondors battle music ( specifically ) was extremely annoying to me. I actually went into options and turned battle music off. x D

    Other than that , Lotro always had great music imo , with or without Chance. Especially on our latest update , the Black gate <333 I LOVED THE MUSIC !

    However , it's safe to say that Thomas brings that extra touch , for me at least ; )

    I've not had combat music on since the option was introduced...so

    But really liked the Gondor BB music, housing area, Dol Amroth etc.

    Not heard the newer stuff yet as I retired my capped character. But I look forward to it when my lowbie finally gets there!

    I agree, though. Nothing beats Chance's tracks.

    Please consider making the soundtrack available for download as you did with former soundtracks.
    I for one often listen to the music out of game because it is so beautiful.

    Is this just a digital download or can you get it on a CD?
