I don't know if it's just because it's a voice I grew up with so much, but I suspect will always think that Judy Collins is one of the best singers I've heard. The clarity and power are just absolutely what I want for ballad-type songs.

Has anyone played any of the Divinity: Original Sin series? I'm sort of tempted to try them solely because the soundtrack is good.

I played divinity 3 which didn't blow me away if I'm honest. Very pretty and quite fun though.

(I enjoyed Skyrim much more ;) )

This may have already passed the radar of those on this site, but there's a great "bardcore" scene around on the intertubes at the moment, converting popular music into a more medieval (I expect ahistorical) style. At any rate, this channel has taken things a step further, and redoes the lyrics in (apparently) period-correct languages and dialects, creating some of the best things I've heard musically (possibly just in general) all year.

Oh, yeah, the bardcore stuff is glorious :)

Meanwhile I've been listening to some more Georgian music:

I've been enjoying Hades, and one thing I have to say among a number in its favour is that it has some absolutely cracking songs:

The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

After having been bombarded with sub 60 second clips of this for months, having a full length version is somehow really really nice to give the song a sense of a closure!

It's an evening for something with a bit of twang I think:

New band recommendation is Cantica, who only have four songs on YouTube but the vocal melodies in their covers of Sera Was Never and Empress of Fire are really really nice.

Yet more varied international takes on Dragon Age music - a Ukrainian cover of The Dawn Will Come. :)
