It's okay. I have the D3 OST here and it's nowhere near as good as the D2 music is, and Blizzard seems to know it if you listen to some comments they make in the making of D3 videos.
The D3 music sounds way too much like WoW music with all the LOTR stylings and wailing voices in the background. It sounds nothing like the epic music that was in Diablo 2, at all. The one and only exception is the New Tristram song.
D3 music is not bad by any stretch, but it's nowhere near epic or as good as D2's OST.
yeah unfortunately I have to say this is the case after having listened to the soundtrack about 12 times now
about half of the tracks don't even register they're so generic, and the only one that stands out is new tristram, mainly because of ideas from the first game
