For all it's flaws, the game had a stunning soundtrack.

That 2nd one sounds like "al otro lado del rio" from the motorcycle diaries soundtrack. I highly recommend buying it, its almost all instrumental like this.

The soundtrack is beautiful; ironically (and not intentionally) my forum name here is also the name of a song on the soundtrack. One of my favorite songs from the MoE soundtrack is the track titled "Inside", the song that plays whenever you're inside a safe building. I hope the soundtrack gets released some day; it's beautiful, really.

MOE never had an official soundtrack release, so what fans came up with the song titles?

I also have to agree the soundtrack is great.

Also unlike most people in this forum, it is one of my top favorite KQ games despite it's flaws.

Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

Thank you. I love this song so much. It really is beautiful. Is there any place to download all the tracks from the game?

To Baggins: I agree, but it is a tired argument.

To DD: I don't know where to download it, the links above literally showed up in the suggestions area on youtube after listening to QFG4 tracks.

One of the three composers on the MOE was Kevin Manthei. I've been his fan since accidentally stumbling to his site after searching for some music that was missing from the Resident Evil movie OST (He did some additional music while Beltrami/Manson composed the action scenes). Personally I was surprised to find that he also worked on Sacrifice (Never could get the game to work on my old computer, but loved the main menu music).

You can find his site here. It has a few tracks of his work from stuff like Invader Zim, Sacrifice and shitload of Nancy Drew-games. Send him an email if you like his stuff, he likes to hear from people.

Thanks, MikPal! So wait, the composer did some stuff for Invader Zim? I LOVE THAT SHOW!

He did everything except the opening music.

Thanks for sharing. "Song of the Sylph" is especially gorgeous.
