Over at GamingUnion.net, we've started a podcast series called Gaming Music FM which I think might be right up OCR's alley. The podcast takes a soundtrack from one game and we discuss how well it works in different areas. We want to teach everyone, whether musically inclined or not, how to critcally listen to music in a game. We talk about 4 major criteria in a soundtrack and we even have what we call "The Wall of Groove" to decide what a soundtrack should be rated. We release the show every couple of weeks and I'll be sure to post them here!
