I've been playing Civ2 since 1998 and been browsing these magnificent forums for a long time, too. I don't know how it took so long from me to join the community. I think the CD music of Civ2 is phenomenal. It has loads of themes for ancient cultures and very beautiful suites, like "Shining Bath". It's honestly the best game music I've ever come across. It's so good actually, that after buying MGE to replace Classic, I put the Classic's CD into my CD changer. IMHO MGE's music was worse compared to the original, which let me down a bit. Does anyone else agree with me on this and do you know any artists, who have performed similar-kind of music? I'm the process of finding ancient Egyptian, Eastern etc. music. Both your opinions and help concerning finding this kind of great background music is very appreciated.
