flyongengar It's certainly worth noting that Baba Yetu was originally a track specifically made for Civilization V. There's a large divide, however, between a track that generally stands apart from the experience of a game and a full score that's not only representative of a game in its entirety but practically inseparable from the experience.

I don't get all the "it's about time" people are spouting in regards to this.

Civilization IV called, "Baba Yetu" was the first video game song to get nominated for a Grammy (which is also won) in 2011.

Symphonic Abyss you should check this out.

I've been meaning to look into this game as I've heard nothing but good things about it and it looks really interesting. I'm big into the music for games and anime I like so this is just another reason to get to it. I'd listen to the videos now but the computers in this campus lab don't have speakers and I don't have my headphones, go figure.

Just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit, took the midni---

Oh wait... wrong Journey.

Soundtrack does sound nice though.

This isn't really gaming's first Grammy nomination. I believe last year the theme to Civilization V, Baba Yetu, won the Grammy for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists. Just saying.
This is the first time an entire soundtrack has been nominated.
"It is the first Grammy nomination a video game has ever received," says the article. Journey is a really nice experience, so I'm glad to see some part of it up for a Grammy.

The soundtrack of 'Journey' is poignant...yet the music from 'The Dark Knight Rises' still rock

It's really a great soundtrack, I've listened to alot of this type of music and it does stand out.
