So it's been months now...

Recommended Posts

...and i'm still not sick of the beautiful theme music.

It's better than most film scores today, let alone other games.

I especially love the somber dirge-y piano bit, reminds me of Chopin or Debussy.
The whole thing is simultaneously dark and uplifting, utterly perfect for the subject matter.

Good work

I actually dislike it totally, sounds quite ridiculous to me. I mute the thing and unmute the game when the battle starts

It reminds me quite a bit of the opening theme to the old daytime soap opera, Days of Our Lives.

I always wondered, why they couldn't use music of the period that's in public domain. Every nation in the game produced some rather good (or at least tolerable) non-political music, that could just play lightly in the background.

 

An example: Alexander Tsfasman was one of the most successful Soviet jazz composers of the 1930s and early '40s. Having his music play in the background of Soviet careers would be a great mood-setter - and a welcome change from the generic theme and bombastic, heavy orchestral pieces usually associated with the USSR in video games. 

 

 

 

(Please ignore the propaganda painting of Stalin, Tsfasman's music generally is apolitical - or at least so I've been told, I don't speak Russian)

I liked this one from Birds of Steel (later War Thunder) on PS3:

 

 

Beethoven - Symphony No.7 in A major op.92 - II, Allegretto

Perfect choice, i would make it a main theme soundtrack!

I even liked original il2 music theme, anything cheerfull if you ask me but jazz music would perfectly represent ww2 ambient in non-depressive way.

Is this a confession that you used to watch it. If so my high estimation of you has just nose dived. Nah, you wouldn’t have watched???

Hehe.  Lord no!  I only remember hearing it playing from another room as a child, sometime in the early 1970's.  :popcorm:

Jeremy Soule's IL-2: Birds of Prey theme song I always thought was rather good.

 

 

Yeah this was really good! I bought it. One of the best game scores.

No mention of Matt Milne's compositions? - his music is amazingly moody with some absolutely atmospheric and terrific stuff - from his starting song, "War Rages On" and all throughout Wings Over the Reich. The music in Wings Over Flanders Fields UE is really really well done too - just hauntingly beautiful.
