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.

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.

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 decision 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.
