Editor's review by Adam Corn (2017-03-03)

Don't let the presumptuous title dissuade you - following an excellent second album in the Greatest Video Game Music arranged album series, this third installment continues to impress. The arrangements and performances for such Western mainstay series as Warcraft, Dragon Age, Skyrim and Portal, as well as Final Fantasy X's "Hymn of the Fayth", are among the best choral game music you'll hear, avoiding the bombast of most such works in favor of a more subdued yet still epic approach combining Gregorian-like male choral harmonies with beautiful lead vocals by Myrra Malmberg. The album is fairly short at forty minutes, but whether listening to only my favorite tracks or to the album as a whole, no game soundtrack from the year has moved me more than this one. Maybe that title isn't so presumptuous after all.
