It's nice that the music is appreciated. Personally, I find it bland and incredibly repetitive. After years, I have it turned way down. I would still probably have a visceral negative reaction to hearing the sound loop from Karazhan again after the year I spent in there with a guild too small to raid much of anywhere else. As an altaholic, another example would be the alliance-side inn music. Maybe it's just dwarf music or human music, but good grief, buy the inn a jukebox. I generally play with sound one and music off. A dwarf flightmaster exclaiming "Keep your feet on the ground!" just as he sends you flying away is much less annoying to me than listening to the same sound clip over and over.Maybe a lot of it is good music and I just get tired of it. I noticed, fiddling around with the Rift beta, that the music didn't annoy me as much, not because it was wonderful, but because it was novel to me. That's true of most music. When you go to the dumbed-down symphony where they perform the familiar-but-overplayed pieces more often than not, it's the same thing to me. The Jupiter Symphony is fine music, but only fun so many times. Many songs that have been on classic rock stations for 40 years were great, but listen to anything 100 times and the fun wears off. There tends not to be enough new music in WoW to be able to avoid hearing the same thing 100 times.At which point, sign me up for Lady Gaga.
