No, I am not saying that the recent works of music in the shadowlands xpac are bad, they’re stellar as always.
It’s that when I was fairly new to WoW, the music was hugely exhilarating and euphoric. I remember getting frissons (goosebumps), chills down my spine, and weird sensations in my head when I listened to Azuremyst Isle, Grizzly Hills, Howling Fjord, etc in my first 5 years of playing WoW. But as soon as I went to college, while the expansions I had played in those years (Legion, BfA, and now Shadowlands) had good music, the sensational feeling isn’t there anymore.
I personally know people who still feel goosebumps or nostalgia attacks from listening to both past and recent WoW music despite them not playing for years.
Here I am, still playing for almost 11 years, and I can’t seem to have a magical feeling with the music anymore. But other people still do, why is that so, and do some of you have this thing?
Edit: Apparently some people misunderstood my post, which it ok! My point is that I for some reason can’t have the old magical feeling with WoW’s soundtrack anymore. Just today I was cruising around Northrend and unlike almost 10 years ago, the music doesn’t make me feel goosebumps as I was in my first 5 years of playing WoW. It is the same old music, but it the magic doesn’t seem to ring anymore.
