Medal of Honor 8-Disc Soundtrack, Too Much?

Cover of "Medal of Honor"

Cover of Medal of Honor

I like a good soundtrack, especially those included in games such as Need for Speed, Burnout and Grand Theft Auto, some are single disc, some are double and a few manage to go up to 4 discs, but an 8 disc set that lasts 10 hours?
Electronic Arts are releasing a Medal of Honor soundtrack set which spans the collection, from Medal of Honor (the original, not 2010 version, although, that’s in there, too) to bonus discs of European Assault and Airbourne.

Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing at EA, “the box set representing the 12-year-old franchise is an absolute milestone for video game scores. The millions of MEDAL OF HONOR fans around the world deserve nothing less. We are honored to partner with LA-LA Land Records.”

Hold onto your rifle, soldier, it’s a long list…

In choosing an appropriate composer to convey the mood of the first MEDAL OF HONOR, legendary director Steven Spielberg was introduced to and impressed with young unknown composer, Michael Giacchino. “I did what anybody in their right mind would do,” said Spielberg. “I signed him up to score MEDAL OF HONOR—and the rest of Giacchino’s history belongs to him.” Giacchino’s video game score pioneered live orchestral recordings of videogame music.
