it is not even noticed. these songs listed just makes you scared to be in the zone youre in
What about D1 Tristram theme?!
Well, I quit Diablo III the day after it came out. No one should ever forget for one second how bad this game really is.
Diablo music = Matt Uelmen's music and D3 is not composed by Matt.
So basically D3 is not Diablo sound.

You don't like this game or this genre. Go play other games and be happy.
D2's composer is with Runic Games, the guys who make Torchlight, if you've played it, you'll notice the familiarity.
I play D3 playing D1 and D2 music.

that goes without even mentioning. its the definition of a diablo game
Act1 music in Diablo 2 is really good. Not overly keen on the rest, but the act 1 music is special. D3's music is very generic and bland for me.
At the meeting with the composer for Diablo 1 and 2.

"We want the music to be ambient and horrifying all at the same time. We want the player to feel as if he is completely alone in this world"

At the meeting with the composer for Diablo 3

"OMG WE WANT DAT MUSIC TO BE TOTALLLLLY EPIC DOE xD. WE WANT PLAYERS TO GO OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD DIS GAME SOOOO OEPIC DOE xD"
While I prefer D1 and D2's soundtrack (Monastery, Rogue, Sisters, Sanctuary :)), the "movie production" type soundtack of D3 isn't bad in any way. It's mostly great, with a few phenomenal pieces. I especially like the tune played for Cain's funeral pyre, as well as some of the Act 4 music.
Personally I can't understand why blizzard didn't drive a boatload of cash through matt uelman's front door. People spend thousands of hours listening to the soundtrack, it needs to be top notch.
This cave song @ 1:30 + is amazing :) oh nostalgic love taking mushrooms and acid and playing diablo was never better then when i was a kid.

Yet 1 year later you still here. Need some help to find a good doctor to cure you ?

And I'll be here in ten years from now, making sure they're reminded every day.

I love this genre, hence being here to make sure they stop driving it into the ground. Torchlight II is the best ARPG of all time. Diablo II a damn close second. Diablo III is the worst ARPG ever made.
Music does not give me shivers like it does you. I just recognize it as being connected to a certain genre of movies, tv series, bands, etc...
