    Turning off game music is (nearly) always one of the first alterations to Options I make when installing a game.
    Almost all games just loop the same stuff.

    Notable exceptions include: Shogun:TW, Halo & Star Wars games.

    So I play either radio or just Winamp in the background.
    maybe those guys should be doing something more useful...

    I have the game sounds muted, and play music with Media Player. It's far more fun. Not too say I haven't played with the EB music, its really something special, but i prefer my own tastes.

    some music I use when i feel like battling with other music are:
    The Roots
    Linkin Park
    Rage Against the Machine
    Tupac Shakur
    Gangstarr
    some of the songs... especially...
    I Don't Care (Roots), Points of Authority (Linkin Park), Ballad of a Dead Soulja (2pac), The Uppercut (2pac), Battle (Gangstarr), The Militia (Gangstarr), and Guerilla Radio (Rage)

    but normally the game music is good

    EDIT:
    just realized this is what i listen to sometimes getting pumped, like before I fought with some of my buddies...

    I listen to hardcore stuff.... like The devil wears prada (not the movie.) Misery Signal, and norma jean. Along with some bayside and some other random songs thrown into my playlist.

    If u wana see what i listen to then check this out

    www.myspace.com/TDWP

    www.myspace.com/miserysignals

    www.myspace.com/normajean

    www.myspace.com/bayside

    (im 15 btw... this is just what today's kids listen to)

    misery signals is my personal favorite at the moment, maybe its just because they are fresher then the rest.

    I prefer some Metal/post-hardcore for my battles, like: Waterdown, Montréal, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, Raunchy, Emil Bulls, 36 Carzyfists and so on.

    For some reason I like to play Perez Prado or Strawinsky, but I don't know why...

    EB music is fine for me too

    And before EB music, RTW music was also fine of me too (I still like it)

    I used to have music at like 100% along with sound effects (speech at 80%), but now I have sound effects at 100%, speech at 85%, and finaly music at 75%.

    One thing though, I wish I could mod the game so the music switch between EB and RTW music depending on whats going on in game. But I am an illeterate when it comes to codes and PC stuff.

    Seriously, about half the time I listen to the EB music (I really love it) and then the other half I'm listening to my mp3 or using media player. Depending on my mood I could be listening to the Alexander soundtrack or some My Chemical Romance, Nightwish, Queen or Cheap Trick especially Surrender when I know the ai's men are about to rout

    The EB music is fine, but when fighting battles as the Germanioi, I love to listen to Rammstein.

    Oh yeah it really is. I've come to appreciate Vangelis' (the man who came up with the Alexander score) work a lot more after listening to it without having the rattle of battle roaring over it

    didnt anybody else like Alexander? Its basically THE reason i got interested in greek history and why I love macedonia so much....

    the battles they DID show were really good i think, if only he had a larger budget to have done more of them... and maybe a sequel about the diadochi?

    Battles were awesome indeed BUT they were TOO short, about 10 to 15 mins a pieace and the movie only showed 2 battles. Thats about 30mins and the movie was over 3 hours Long!

    I am sure they had more combat footage.... plus (to me) the movie rushed to Gaugamela (sp), 10-15mins of it. After that it lagged for a while, then the battle in India came, another 10-15mins. And finaly the movie lagged all the way to the end.

    I love the Alexander soundtrack (well, anything Vangelis does is awesome) and I love the movie! It's impossible to compress 30+ years with 12 of them pure adventure with hundreds of battles to a single movie, so it just showed bits and pieces his life. But there's already been a few threads about it, so let's not slide away from the question at hand.

    How the hell can you guys listen to the EB music?! I find it waaay too boring, so I slap on Media player and use my keyboard hotkeys to skip through songs until I get to one I like (and that sometimes pumps me up for whatever's happening) Hed PE rock!!

    That's not very friendly to the creators of the music, is it? If you don't like the music, that's fine, but please keep your criticism constructive. Senseless bashing won't help improve anything.

    Because EB is the ****! And the music is similar to what the people of your faction would have listened to.

    I rather enjoy the EB music. I think it's fitting for the mood of the game.

    I am no expert, but the EB themes sound like modern rather than ancient music. One of the loading screens specifically says that the team chose for a mood rather than a recreation of Hellenic music since Hellenic music would sound pretty weird to modern people. I imagine the same was done for the other cultures.

    I know.... but EB music its more "fitting" than, say, Slayer.

    Slayer is for lifting heavy weights at the gym

    I think Oh Fortuna is definately my favorite for battle music, but after watching the movie gettysburg lastnight I think there is a lot of music from that movie that would be good for marching/battles
