When I am writing, drawing or cleaning the apartment, I have found it’s a thousand times more epic if I am listening to fabulous soundtrack music. The soundtracks below will make great gifts for any nerd in your life, music buff or otherwise.
Two Steps from Hell: Skyworld – $11.99
Two Steps from Hell is one of the best “epic music” music groups out there. Their music is sweeping and grandiose, I love it. Their newest album, SkyWorld has some excellent tracks.
A free video game soundtrack collection from the past 20 years of Epic Games.
Original Lawrence of Arabia – $9.99
Maurice Jarre knew a thing or two about how to make an sweeping and glorious soundtrack. He was the master long before John Williams or Howard Shore.

Shadow of the Colossus – $32-45.00

FFX is one of, if not the, best Final Fantasy games in the series. It also boasts a lovely soundtrack. Hum of the Fayth and Zanarkand are two of the most beautiful songs in video game history.
