Couldn’t be more deserving, probably the most evocative soundtrack that I’ve ever had the absolute pleasure of listening to and absorbing.

bluexy "Apotheosis" is a good choice. Up there with "I was Born for This" what with its multi language awesome.

Anyway this guy is the veritable polished diamond in the rough. He definitely deserves it considering how Journey was very much driven by its music as any other factor.

Lets hope they actually listen to the soundtracks before making a descision cause Journey is bound to be far less known then say "The Dark Knight Rises"

The soundtrack may not be as well-known as anything from Hollywood, but I think a Grammy nomination for a video game soundtrack is long overdue. I've heard some great audio tracks from a variety of different games in recent years that could have gotten this nomination, but for whatever reason didn't.

I'll take time to listen to the tracks from this game at another time, probably after work.

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.

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

"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.

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

Oh wait... wrong Journey.

Soundtrack does sound nice though.

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.
