There are plenty of good things to say about Quake. For starters, many experts see it as a precursor for all modern shooters. Furthermore, its level design was actually top-notch back in the day. However, we should also commend id Software for the game’s outstanding soundtrack. You know, the one signed by Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails). Nowadays, if you want to listen to that masterpiece, you have to dig out the old CD from ’96, or maybe settle for a YouTube rip.
Isn’t there an alternative?
The good news is that Trent has decided to make the Quake soundtrack available on vinyl. This means that those of you who are fortunate enough to own a turntable will be able to enjoy that famous theme in its entire glory. This soundtrack is part of a recent new wave of back catalog releases. There’s no word on how much a pre-order would cost right now, but NIN’s single-record LPs usually go for about $20.
And if you’re worried about any delivery issues, keep in mind that NIN has recently made a change as far as fulfillment partners are concerned. While it’s true that vinyl soundtrack releases are not a novelty nowadays, Trent’s work is special for many reasons. For one, he’s an Oscar-winning artist. Secondly, he also worked in the tech industry on Apple’s Beats Music app.
