    Nostalgia aside, this guy is a genius composer. His ambient on Black & White is fantastic as well.

    When I was a kid playing Black & White, I'd often zoom all the way out to where the peaceful ambient music plays and I'd stay there a long time. One of my first ambient loves :')

    The Music Box is Shaw's original song?

    Fabulous soundtracks! Especially F:TLC & F II, but F III defenitely has its moments (Reaver Mansion, Shadelight f.e.)

    Every song off of the F:TLC gives me a nostalgia rush. And on top of that, great music.

    I thought that Fable III soundtrack will be better. However it's still not bad.

    Fable II score is more boring than Fable I, but some tracks are awesome - Fable II Theme, Fairfax Castle and Bowerstone Market for example. Can't wait for the Fable III music.
