Just wanted to say some kind words about the music
#1 Submitted: Mon, 14/03/2016 - 00:07

I heard that a lot of the grognards here on this forum were being very mean-spirited grognards about the music in the game. I thoroughly enjoyed every single track and thought it fit the game very well. Carmageddon is all about being edgy in the most immature way possible, and the "dubstep" (only one of the tracks is actually dubstep) tracks fit perfectly.

To all the whiners: I'm sorry that you are no longer an impressionable teenager playing Carma1 for the first time in 1997. The music in Carma1 was just as irritating to old grumps back then as the music in Reincarnation is to you now. Times have moved on, and the music is perfect for a modern Carmageddon.

It's all a matter of taste ... I also love the music and think that it fit perfectly to a Carmageddon game ... But i can understand guys that prefer the heavy metal style of carma2. Btw, There are guide on steam to replace the music by what we want.
(Insulting people on their musical taste is useless)

It's impossible to please everybody because our musical taste is so varied. Each person has an idea of what would feel most fitting during their gameplay experience.

We (MSP) tried our best to pay homage to the original while trying to be unique with our sound. Some of my fave game soundtracks were Carmageddon 1, Demolition Racer and Destruction Derby 2.

All of those games helped to influence me with what I was able to help bring to the table. I'm really thankful to those of you out there who have supported all the music in the game. It means a heck of a lot to us!

A topic made purly to complain about people who complain... theres some kinda weird ironey here. if ya had just posted to say you like the music fine, but I find the tone of the post here somewhat mean spirited, I never liked the music in the new carma, I never said much about it.

also yok ya.. know theres more to the game than its soundtrack right?

Of course! It's basically the LAST thing one would organise in a production schedule.

My agreement came with the amount of bullshit people were spouting in reaction to the soundtrack. This was mostly elsewhere on boards with less insular community vibe and more competitive anonymity where the greater inner-dickbag was apparent in most posters.
A lot of the shit said, and most sadly it was almost always about Morgue's contribution to the game, was downright vindictive and it really didn't do Morgan any good at all...

I honestly wanted to make a thread to rant about it myself, the poor attitudes people have to something like this, how they act like it so negatively impacts their precious little lives and the fact that in their over-reactions they ARE actually impacting someone else's with their selfishness...

It's OK not to like something, I don't like many things. When you're in a public forum and dedicate yourself to coming up with creatively devastating turn of phrase to tear apart someone and their art, you might be a bit shit.

But some people will allways, Only see negativity, and hate, I have no idea why.
Ya, Idont like.. the music in the game but.. whatever.. I dont like supercars eaither, so I dot go posting shit on every lamborghini fan page or whatever..

I have no idea why people cant focus on what they like insted of hate, but ah, the human race, Maybe we shuld stop hating people who hate stuff :B

But rather than stop everyone spewing there opinions everywhere, I guess another part of the problem is people who blindly folow the opinions of others 'This youtuber said the games shit, So its shit, end of story'

ya I know I dident contribute nothin here Just wanted to type a badly spelled short rant.

I really like Maximum Sexy Pigeon, and think they're a great fit. Morgue not so much... To me the Morgue tracks don't feel chaotic enough. I've never been super into dubstep, but I just feel that Morgue is too calm if that makes any sense. I'd prefer to have something like Knife Party's Bonfire, that kind of chaotic mix. But that's just my silly opinion. In the end the music doesn't annoy me or make me not wanna play the game, it's there for the people who do love it.

I can see why people are upset in the shift of genre, but theres no need to scream it's shit just because you don't like it.

But others love it, and find that all the tracks without exception fit perfectly to the game.
So you are right "but theres no need to scream it's shit just because you don't like it."
It's just a matter of taste after all, nobody is right or wrong ...

You know guys...

I feel as If I own an apology to both Yok and morgue. Back when Reincarnation was released I was one of those who did not enjoy the OST and modded my own music into the game.

Over time I ended up having two carma:r folders in steam, one of them was for mods and the other one was a vanilla installation sorely meant to play multiplayer. And the more I played multiplayer the more I grew fond of carma:r's ost. In fact, I love it now, I think I cannot imagine the new carmageddoms running without MSP and Morgue, and I even play the ost in youtube on an almost-daily basis.

So yeah, sorry guys for disrespecting your music, I've been a dumb fool.

Nevertheless! I still think that the slower paced songs sound abit off. MSP's slower paced songs sound a bit depressing, and morgue's sound as if they belong in the menus of a Need for Speed game. Just my two cents!

Max is back. Let there be blood and motor oil
