share your thoughts!
I absolutely love „Leisurely Brows", as I said on many occasions (sorry...), and honestly can't decide between the rest. :love:

Imperial Veteran Hussars incoming!

To be honest, this track is more fitting to Age of Mythology than Age of Empires III.
Pay more attention to detail.

Revolution track no doubt.

Something epic about knowing that win or lose, the match is ending in the next 2 min.

Didntseeitcoming, KOTH and EndCredits_606b are my favorites... but I love them all tbh :biggrin:

Revolution Victory is GeluAustrinum, the same as when you win thanks to Trade Monopoly

Ludus Perditus - frustrating enough, there is no hope to find out the lyrics on the web. I just hear "Clades ! Detrimentum" at the beginning, but do not understand anything after this

haha, so true pikilic with Ruinion, I kinda lost the childhood joy of listening to it because of its frequency of appearance... unnecessary, should be more unique!
good find with the video, part of it was in the „Making of Age of Empires 3" video, available on YouTube.
@mongo10 , true, I've been getting into that more and more lately, really good one!

Also, check this out!

edit: Above post is making the page go unresponsive. :!:

The AOE3 music is very forgettable and uninspired. Let's be honest. Far worse than AOE1 & 2.

I used to play the AOE1 & 2 themes on my crappy old piano all the time.

Man, that band arrangement sounds like it was played by a bunch of 6th graders and the composer looks so stuff and uncomfortable, but it still makes me wish my high school symphonic band could play it (we'd do so much better ofc :biggrin: ).

I think AoE3 music is both lovely and epic, but I also think that the AoE1+2 OSTs stick out more, they're unique and iconic. The AoE3 soundtrack is basically string and brass orchestra music from the 18th to 20th century with sometimes folk elements (banjo and such). AoE1+2 soundtracks not only have that distinctive midi-synth sound to them, it's also a very unique crossover of archaic-medievalish tunes played on a variety of very different instruments mixed with offbeat-like snares and drums in the back. The AoE1 OST isn't actual ancient music and the AoE2 OST isn't actual medieval music. For me AoE1+2 music has something very meditative to it. It's really hard to classify that music style. So better have a listen yourself:

Revolootin' is my favorite track as well. I hate leisurely brows because it's related to sound bug. If it wasn't for the sound bug, then it would be 2nd best. Also Lazer bear aom theme is pretty good.

The leisurely brows mp3 file is known to cause the sound bug. At least that's what the game's website said on FAQ.
