Mass Effect 2 soundtrack
The first soundtrack was amazing. I was waiting to hear confirmation on this and I'm glad Jack Wall and company have returned for part 2! I've heard a few samples, and you can expect some new stuff and variation to some of the classic tunes from part 1.

"Epic soundtrack". I love ME but that's not true. Epic soundtrack? Did I miss something? did I play some other Mass Effect that bioware released with not-so-epic-soundtrack? It was more techno-ish and less classy. I did like the main theme which was subtle but background score during action was like cartoony man! It was anything but epic!

The Mass Effect soundtrack was VERY epic.

The whole "Blade Runner" vibe was incredibly well done and fit the game beautifully.

I typically don't like synth scores, but this one was fantastic. In addition to Blade Runner, it also reminded me a bit of the original Tron score. Seriously, ME1 is one of the best game soundtracks I've ever heard.

Enjoyed the music of the first found it very relaxing and almost mystical at some parts, since this is the same guy who performed the magic in the first. I can't wait to see what he will be doing for the second.

ME1 music was great. My favorite song is the music that was playing while you browse the galaxy map :D

Good to see the original composer also is working on part 2.

I hope there's a listing for the CD soundtrack soon. Amazon only has a listing for MP3s, and I'd rather get a physical CD.

EDIT: Thanks for the link, man. It sounds like it will be another fantastic score!

Sweet
I can't wait... ME1 had an amazing soundtrack. I used to just let the map music play in the background while I did other stuff.

No CD
One of the dudes on Bioware's website has said there are no plans to release physical copies of the soundtrack. Digital downloads only. Too bad. Looks like I'll have to get it off iTunes.
