May I rescind my partial agreement with you? (Destiny)

Marty has an uncanny talent for evoking emotion with music, and the weakest music in D2 is not as evocative as Marty's weakest scores, but that said, when D2's soundtrack is great, it's really great. The Kronos Quartet pieces and their use in the game are absolutely stellar IMHO. And I had no problem with the interstitial music. It seemed up to Bungie's established high standard.

I am not really talking about the quality of the actual music so much. I am talking about when it is played.

I very much like the variation of the main theme in the tower for example.

I know you were, which is why I talked about the blurred line between judging the music on its merits vs. judgments about when it was played. This playthrough I was attentive for moments when I could say, "yeah, Cody's right--this is an example." Didn't happen for me, which was a surprise.
